If you’ve always wondered how to start reading the Bible, but you’ve never really known where to start, I’m here to help.
This hub is for those who are feeling called to take on the challenge of reading the Bible from start to finish.
Whether you do the 30-day challenge, or take your time, use this as your companion and feel free to continually refer to as you need.
Leading up to November, 2021, I had been feeling the Holy Spirit push me towards reading the Bible from start to finish. Not wanting to be fully obedient to that large request, I pushed it off and delayed it as much as I could.
After a major spiritual victory for my family in October, I was convinced that I could no longer delay this urging. I quickly realized, this was not just for me, but for me to also encourage others to pick up their Bibles and get to know the story of God’s love for themselves. To learn not what the world says, but what the Word says.
So on November 1, I started my 30 day challenge and it is the embodiment of the word challenge. However, God’s grace has carried me through, and I’m convinced that taking on a challenge like this will change your life forever.
Don’t believe me? Try it out, and let’s talk halfway through…
No need to worry, I have broken out the reading for you for the next 30 days. Some days seem longer than others, but for the most part, it’s pretty evenly spaced out.
Again, don’t feel any pressure to complete this in 30 days, if you want to take your time, you can still utilize this download!
