So Far, So Great!

January 1st, I wrote that my New Year's Resolution is to read the Bible everyday. After I finished my blog, I did some more clicking around on the Internet and I found several pages about reading the Bible in a year. One that really caught my eye was http://eword.gospelcom.net/year/. They have five Bible reading plans in over 50 different translations.

I decided that reading the Bible in a year is not completely unrealistic. Perhaps, I'm trying to make up for lost time! I am reading it in chronological order - in the order the events actually happened in history. The New International Version and The Message will be the main translations I use. I have read the Bible everyday, but I'm a few days behind on getting the whole thing read in a year. Right now, I am mostly reading it in The Message translation, but when something strikes me as interesting, I check it out in the NIV.

I pray that this year will be year of spiritual growth for me!

Now we want to do this! We've decided to read through using the Message.
