Setting aside time to read the Bible and meditate on it doesn’t work for me. For once, I am a working mother who spent almost twelve hours in the office and attend to my household chores right after that. Sometimes, we are also obligated to go to work even at our day offs. Hence, there is no alone time for reading the Bible let alone for meditation.
But I want to read it. It’s been my goal a year ago to read the whole Bible. It’s a guilt for me that I am able to read volumes of books but unable to read my very own Bible.
What works in my busy schedule is this: I read whenever I have time, wherever I am. No planning needed.
You won’t believe it but most of my reading are done while I am sitting on a toilet bowl. That’s a chapter at a time. I’m proud to say that by that method, I am now in the book of Joshua witnessing his leadership, cunning at war and courage that comes from the Lord.
Planning to read the Bible in a year will not work unless you are determined to read it anytime and anywhere.
When reading your Bible, it’s not the kind of place or how free is your time or how quiet the moment that counts. What’s important is you read. You find time to listen to the Word.
Surely, you can read the whole Book in a year or so.
When and where did you read your Bible?
