NT in a Year

I want to inspire you to read the Word with me this year. I know that there are several plans to read your Bible in a year and if that works for you... great! But for me, it was always too time consuming and I found myself just skimming through the daily readings so I could hit my quota before the day was over. If I missed a day or two, I was so pressed to "catch up" that I would eventually stop trying. So, I found a way to read only The New Testament in a year. I pray and ask God to feed my spirit with His Word and then, since I only read 1 chapter a day, I can take my time and let the words "sink in" as I read them. My husband and I have even been reading to Belle after dinner. It's a wonderful thing to see her asking questions as she learns scripture. I am very excited about it and I hope you will be too.

Here is how it works:
Every week if you read 5 chapters (starting in Matthew), you will have completed the entire New Testament in a year's time. I love it because you only read 5 nights out of the week, so if you miss 1 night, it's easy to catch up. Today I am on Matthew 10. I wake up and almost can't wait to read my chapter. I believe that as I put the Word in... daily, it will produce results in my life as well as your own if you make the commitment to read your Bible too.

Happy Reading!!!

WOW!!! What a TERRIFIC idea! I think I will start implementing this TONIGHT! I am totally excited about what this will do for our family! Thanks T for the idea!
Ps. I completely know what you meam about trying to read the whole Bible in a year. I've done that exact same miss-a-day and then try to catch up and feel stresed out because there's too much-thing. This NT idea is perfect!
