My main resolution for 2007 was to read the entire Bible in one year. I made others as well, but this was the resolution to which I was most committed.
Little did I know when I made that resolution that I would spend a good part of the last half of the year virtually unable to read due to multiple surgeries and a brain addled by pain medications and distress.
Little did I know how far behind I would lag in the daily readings after each surgery (especially after the one that left me so frail that I couldn't even hold the book for several weeks) nor how hard I would have to work at getting caught up again -- sometimes at a pace of 30-40 pages per day.
And little did I know how very desperately I would need to have a head full of God's words to get me through this past year.
Since I had never before been successful in my various attempts to read through the Bible in a year, I studied several available plans out there, and landed happily on the The One Year Bible KJV. I cannot recommend this reading plan highly enough. It simply works. I also purchased a copy for a very good friend with whom I communicate almost daily, knowing that I would be less inclined to fail if I knew someone close to me was doing it also. I cannot recommend that part of my plan highly enough, either. It did make a difference.
I have re-enlisted again this year, and I invite you to come along with me and make this your utmost and highest resolution for 2008.
You will need it. You just never know how much.
