It is Finished (The Second Time Around)

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

This morning I just finished reading the last words of Revelation.  This is my second time going through the Bible in 90 days.  Last summer I finished it in 61 days.  This time around I was slower (which was totally fine with me) because of trying to homeschool and work part time.  It took me 79 days.

I can't encourage you enough to try to read through the Bible like this.  It has totally changed the way I look at God's Word.  I have made so many connections and gained a deeper understanding of why God does the things He does.  Reading through the Bible in this way is actually easier than a year long plan.  With the year long plan, I lost interest and couldn't really connnect what was going on in different parts of the Bible. I have found that moving quickly through the Scriptures keeps my interest up, helps me sail through the tough books (think, Leviticus), and make the goal of reading the whole Bible doable.

Prayfully consider doing this at least once in your life...God will bless you for it!

I heard someone mention this the other day, going through the bible in 90 days and I thought 'WHAT?!' I've tried to do the year cycle but never make it. maybe I'll try this, this time! Thanks for sharing. Visiting from HHH!

I've seen several people are doing this. I'm interested. I'm thinking of doing this after school is done for the summer. Thanks for the post.
