The WHOLE Bible in 90 days? I can do it!!

Written by: *Nikki* at 11:12 PM
So i was completely wasting time the other day surfing on the internet while i should have been folding laundry ... but i came across Mom's Toolbox and seen the new post about reading the Bible in 90 days.

I have seen YouVersion and have the app on my phone ....
I have sifted through all the reading plans and seen the one where you could read the Bible in 90 days..but I always thought that was a little crazy!!

I mean...the first day you read 16 chapters!!! Nuts!!

My church always has a program that we call the Bread Program where we all as a congregation try to read the Bible all the way through in a year..then at the end of the year the ones that did it...get a certificate and a picture of the group. It's always the same people...Everyone knows who is more than likely gonna be up there....
but this year
i wanted to be up there!!!

I wanted to read the Bible all the way through...and TRY to enjoy it!

I love my God...but something about reading those thin pages make me so bored!

I saddens me to say that...because those are God's words...Jesus spoke those words straight from his mouth...from the cross that hung on to SAVE ME!!

How rude am I to say that it bores me!! How disgusting!! How could he love me??
I don't know....but he does...and I am so thankful for it!

Sometimes its the only thing i know i can bank on in this life!

So now that I am already so behind on our yearly reading schedule....I am jumping full force into Mom's Toolbox's 90 Day Reading Plan!!!

There are groups..with mentors...
so much excitement and enthusiasm....
How can you not be excited!!??

I know it is all goody goody now on Day 1....but what about Day 47?

This is how I plan on handling that.....

Pray!

I'm gonna have to make that a forefront in my prayer life...for God to remind me that THIS is important...more important than alot of the other things i do during the day. That I have to make this a priority. And to keep the devil far away from me and my family and my readings...because to be honest..Satan HATES it when you want to do something for God. The more of the Bible you read..the more he has to fight..and weasel in your life...because the more you know the more you can fight him off with God's Word!!! 

So let's get started!!!!

4 wonderful opinions!:

Thanks for dropping into my blog! I'm still a newbie in the world of blog. I hope you keep in touch with me during these next 90 days. We can encourage each other to keep reading! I agree with you about the importance of praying and asking God to keep us on task to complete this adventure.

Hi! I'm also beginning the Bible in 90 Days journey through Mom's Toolbox. You so clearly wrote how I feel. With God's help, we both will be graduates come October 8!

Thanks for visiting me at A Season for All Things. I'm your newest follower and look forward to reading your progress in our joint venture.

I'm no longer religious myself, but I used to be Catholic in the past, and I applaud the fact that you are going to actually READ the Bible! Many Christians have never actually read it and then go around spreading misinformation about what is actually in it.
I read a childrens version cover to cover when I was a child, and when I was in grade school I read the first 4 books cover to cover before I gave up. I must say that reading Exodus in particular was EXTREMELY eye opening given what God wrote about women.
I hope you are able to complete your task and wish you the best of luck!
