Bible Reading Plans, Grace & Truth
Have you signed up for your Bible-reading plan for 2021? Nearly every ministry organization offers a ready-made plan all wrapped up with goodies like scripture cards, study groups, printables, and journaling prompts. With so many options, you’ll certainly find something you like.
So how are you planning to get from Genesis to Revelation in 2021?
On December 30, 2019, I committed to reading the Bible in a year. As I write, it’s Monday, January 19, 2021, and I hope to start the Book of Acts this week.
Even though no one else looked down on me, I still felt like a failure. That is, until AnnMarie reminded me of the real goal of any reading plan, regardless of deadlines.
Years upon years of reading and studying (the Bible) only make me want more.
I’ve learned something else about Bible study plans: All you really need is a Bible and prayer.
Sure, the bells and whistles can be helpful, the only thing we really need is Jesus. God’s Word is always enough all by itself.Years upon years of reading and studying (the Bible) only make me want more. Click To Tweet
So, what’s my plan for this year?
A natural rhythm of intimacy I crave with Jesus. I’ll get to Revelations 22:21 in His perfect timing, and then I’ll ask Him what’s next.
And I’m good with that, thanks to AnnMarie.

Let’s Talk About Jesus…
We are putting together an anthology that’s all about putting our faith into words.
I read the Bible through on a 2-year plan, but rarely do I finish in 2 years. 🙂 It’s usually 3 years. This time I may finish in 2 1/2, but that’s a rarity. I think what you said is best: take our time and read for intimacy with Jesus. That’s the best plan!
It sounds like the reading “plans” are more of a guide. I love that you can use the plans to help you stay on track and close to Jesus.
