Free Bible Reading Plan 2012

Over the last three years, I’ve shared a one-year Bible reading plan with you.

I’m going to go ahead and share another one year Bible reading plan, even though I’ve changed my devotional practice.

(The Bible reading plan was created using my Logos Libronix Digital Library program)

Or, you can continue reading about what I’m doing for devotionals these days.

First off, after reading The Next Story, I was convicted of a practice I’d started late in 2011. I do my morning devotions before I do anything (except necessary bodily functions).

Since I actually do most of my devotional readings on my Nook (that I rooted so I can use a Kindle App), when I go to bed, I turn off the Wi-Fi. When I wake up, I don’t check email, phones, or anything digital until I’ve done my devotionals.

In fact, I’ve started setting 5:30 a.m. as my earliest getting online time. I used to wake up early and try and cease the opportunity to get ahead on some work. No more. If I wake up early, then I spend more time in reading, meditation, and prayer. I consider my early morning wake up as a Samuel call to listen to God.

After two and a half years of reading through the Bible, I decided it was time for a change to bring some ‘freshness’ to my devotional times. So, here’s what I’m doing now.

1. Read one New Testament chapter from the English Standard Version (free Kindle download).

2. Read one chapter from Proverbs in The Message (I got it as a free Kindle download, but now it is $1.99).

3. I’ll read a few pages of a devotional type book. This year, I’ve read the following free Kindle books (we’re free when I got them, but some of them appear to cost money now) during my devotional times:

  • God’s Story, Your Story: When His Becomes Yours by Max Lucado
  • The Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer
  • The Applause of Heaven by Max Lucado
  • Leadership Prayers by Richard Kriegbaum

4. Spend a designated time in quiet prayer and meditation. Since my brain (as Henri Nowen described it) is like a tree fully of monkeys, my quiet mediation time is hard. I set my watch for six minutes and enjoy those moments of peace at the start of each new day.

I’ve enjoyed the change of pace, but I do highly recommend a one-year reading plan if you’ve never tried it.

      For what it’s worth, I’ll put my 2 cents in. Doing an electric poll, I don’t think would revael the true feelings of most people out there, including Christians. Since many of the earths catastrophies happen many miles from us, if not the other side of earth, most people don’t make the connection that it has anything to do with God trying to get our attention. The author of confusion makes sure that we see those nature channels and hear what the preacher, that’s in everyone’s home has to say about how this world evolved over BILLIONS of years, and the rock and roll that will continue as part of the natural time. What I’m trying to say, is that most of the world, specifically, the Christians of the Good O’l USA, are to focused on the here and now; paying the rent, checking out the newest cars, phones, etc., to worry about God knocking at the door. I really don’t feel those people are worthy of hell because they’re trying to make a life for themselves. But, that’s a whole nother subject. Oh, well

    Carrie,We have to embrace our vaelly experiences because this is where we show God our true measure of faith. When we continue to praise and worship him in times of trials we are truly showing the true meaning of faith. I know that it gets hard as I have had my own tribulations, but I know God is able and I am going to continue to trust and believe that NOW faith is my grace. I already have the victory and I only have to believe God for it. Manisfestation is imminent. Amen. Be blessed and remember Love is longsuffering.
