So I decided that I would start the year with a flood - a flood of Bible reading. I have an ambition to read the Bible from Genesis chapter one to Revelation chapter twenty-two, and everything in between in the month of January.
It sounds like a big task and it is - but hey it is a good task! I have had experience in reading the Bible this is my twenty second circuit through the Bible. I also have done the Bible in a month twice before. One time I made it in thirty three days and the other twenty nine, so I do have precedence.
Why did I decide to do it? I wanted to 'flood' myself with the Bible from the beginning of the year to saturate myself in it and try to meditate on it. After this month I think I will sow down a bit!
So one week in how have things gone.
I am reading straight through from beginning to end, so so far i have read.
A total of 291 chapters out of the Bible's total which you may know is 1189.
So this was a very good start and it has been amazing doing it. I would not say I have had any major wow moments and I have obviously not gone into any detail, that is for study of the Bible. I approach the Bible in two ways reading and studying. Reading gives me an overview and makes me think some, but studying makes me look into details at a small section. I believe I need both.
Anyway one week into my challenge and all looks well!
