Reading the Bible in a Year

One of my goals this year is "study the Word more and nurture my relationship with Jesus Christ." It's something that's been heavy on my heart for a while now. I've wanted to make quiet time a part of my daily life but I always seem to come up with excuses. Last year I did a really great devotional called Lady in Waiting: Becoming God's Best While Waiting for Mr. Right. I couldn't recommend it more for unmarried women. The expanded edition includes a journal and study guide. It's very encouraging and easy to work through and even though I'm not "single" I would definitely revisit it. When I wrote this particular goal I didn't really have a plan in mind and then while on Instagram I saw that a friend of mine posted this challenge to join her in reading the Bible in a year. Whoa. *insert self doubt here* Could I really read the Bible in one year? The whole thing?! I don't know but I'm going to try. And I'm really excited about it! I'm anxious to see what God has to show me this year through His Word. Care to join me? You can find the reading plan here. ♥
