Starting January 1st, I decided to do the Bible in 90 Days plan on Youversion. Usually at the beginning of every year I attempt one of the 1-year reading plans. I always make it about two or three months. At that point I usually fall a few days behind because of some project or another and before you know it, it seems hopeless to catch up. This happens every year.
The reading on the 90-day plan is more intense, usually about twelve to fifteen chapters a day, but I feel like it’s a pace I can sustain. I was surprised to learn each days reading usually takes less than an hour. While it has been hard making it through Leviticus and Numbers (sorry, they are just really dry to read) I think it’s something I’ll actually achieve. I usually tackle the first half of the reading in the morning. I’ll then read a chapter or two throughout the day and polish off the remainder before bed. I’ve found it’s good for me to follow this pattern because it’s always on my mind.
I wonder what my life would look like in 2011 if I could not only finish one run through the Bible, but potentially two or three more this year. It’s an interesting experiment.
