Thing to Do #16

Well I finally read the Bible in a year! I read through the Chronological Bible.

Not gonna lie here...I fell behind a few times so I didn't actually read it daily but I caught and finished today. Brian asked me if I actually learned anything or did I just read it to say I do so. Hmmm...both. There were days that I was just reading to read but God opened my eyes quite often to things I hadn't seen or read before. I like the Old Testament being in order because the prophets were mingled with the kings and all the history made sense.

Now I want to read through The Message in a year. We will see if it happens.

Time well spent though.

Hey Wendy, congrats on reading the Bible in a year. I have done it a few times. You're right, the OT is awesome. My favorite story is of Joseph... everytime I read it, God shows me something new!
Have fun reading the Message Bible...I can never get through it, it's too confusing for my simple mind! *Hugs 2 u*
Happy New Year also!

I have wondered about a Chronological Bible. Thanks for the insight. I think it would be helpful having the Prophets and Kings together.
God bless you and Happy New Year!
