Bible Binge Reading

I’m wanting to continue posting as I read through Genesis, but before I get back into that, I wanted to encourage anyone who had read about the 25 Day Bible Reading Plan to seriously think about doing it if you haven’t already.

It doesn’t have to be 25 days. There’s my 35 Day Plan. You can even make your own schedule.

In this article from missionary Tim Berrey, he gives lots of practical advice and encouragement for completing a fast read through the Bible and why you really should consider it. He links to another good article about binge reading the Bible, too.

Think of all the time spent with social media, tv, and being distracted by advertisements and mindless web surfing. If you can trade that time for Bible reading, you can truly be redeeming the time, and being a better steward of it.

Instead of binge watching a tv series or movies, binge read the Bible! If you do it, please share with me about your experience.

35 Days Through the Bible

As noted in a previous post, I was editing someone’s 25 Day Bible Reading Plan. I added 10 days to my own plan to make a five week long plan instead. I have linked to the 35 Day Reading Plan here.

Sometimes the reading got very difficult to work through in the 25 day plan, especially in the Old Testament, so I added 10 days to spread the reading out, while still (hopefully!) preserving the experience of getting a great overview of the Bible in a short period of time.

In my plan, I didn’t write it with specific dates, so you can start it whenever you want. I would highly recommend setting a date to start and then counting ahead to find what the end date will be if you don’t miss any days. Try to go by those dates! If you don’t, it becomes too easy to miss a day and restart the plan over and over. Set a specific date in mind and stick to it!

I am often starting projects that I don’t finish. It was SO satisfying to finish this short, fast-paced reading plan. By God’s grace, I even finished a day early. My husband is doing the plan, but at a slower pace. He is using a Bible app with narration. He listens to the narration as he reads along. This has kept him from becoming distracted and slowing down too much.

May God bless all your efforts to get into His Word. Happy 2020!

Bible Study and Commentary

I’ve been thinking of some ways to organize this blog and basically wondering about the direction that I want to take with it. As I’ve reserved another website in my name (Patricia Grace), I think it’s best to post personal, journal type entries there and keep this site for more general Bible study topics.

So, with that in mind, I plan to make notes as I read through the Bible, with either a category or tag made for the chapter(s) and verse(s) under review, for ease of searching specific passages later.Grape bunch on vine with sunlight behind

I’m writing what I’m learning, either directly from the Holy Spirit through His enlightenment, searching through other Scriptures that shed light on a passage, or from other commentaries to which I will give proper credit. All of these methods, of course, if they yield proper and truthful information and are useful to understand and apply the Scriptures, are from the ministry of the Spirit of Christ. May the Lord keep me faithful and grant discernment and all spiritual wisdom as I seek to understand and apply His good Word and share what I learn with others.

If there are any explanations or interpretations which my readers feel are in error, please don’t hesitate to comment or send me a message ASAP!

Blessings,
