Narelle here. Happy New Year! I’ve taken a break from blogging here to focus on my fiction writing (see my last post dated August 2013). In 2015 I’m going to revamp the 30 Minute Bible Studies site.
One of my New Years resolutions for 2015 is to read the Bible in one year. I’ve joined an online group with friends from Australasian Christian Writers and we’re using the resource: A Woman’s Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year: A Life-Changing Journey Into the Heart of God by Diane Stortz.
I’m going to post a daily meme that includes the relevant Bible reading references. You’re welcome to join me in reading the whole Bible in 2015.
You CAN Read the Bible in a Year
When Diane Stortz was invited to join a study to read the whole Bible in a year, she went for it. It changed her life, even though she’d been a Christian a long time. Now, more than ten years later, she still reads through the Bible every year with a group of friends.
“I didn’t start to really know God until I made knowing him my goal as I read the Bible. Getting to know God changed me. It changed how I think and what I do. It changes me still.”
God put the Bible together for you. Reading it through in a year helps create a rich experience and a focused understanding of what God wants to reveal about himself. And with week-by-week reading plans, easy-to-use reference material, and stories of encouragement from women like you, A Woman’s Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year is the perfect companion for this life-changing practice.
Gather your Bible and some good friends to join you in your journey, or go for it on your own. Either way, God will change you.
