One of the main questions people ask me is how I, personally, study the Bible. That’s a big question to answer because about every year I switch it up.
Last year I read through the Bible along with my husband using the excellent 5 Day Bible Reading plan. I enjoyed it and that was actually one of my goals that I met last year.
I’ve also spent a year meditating through Psalm 119.
I’ve done my own Bible read-through that took three years.
And this year, after a finishing a year of reading through the Bible, I’m ready for another year of savoring the Word slowly. So I’m picking up my I Will Meditate journals again.
So far I’ve worked through the first four journals (they are laid out to take you alternately through an Old Testament book then a New Testament book).
And since all the journals are now available, I can pick any book of the Bible I want to study! Since I’m hoping to write a new Journal and Doodle study through 1 Peter, I grabbed I Will Meditate Volume Thirteen.
The great thing is, these journals are all completely stand alone so you don’t need to start with volume one. You can just grab whichever book you want to go through, or even grab the one that your pastor is going through and study alongside with the sermons! I’ve already started with 1 Peter, and I am currently enjoying not only slow speed, but super slow speed.
I was able to slowly savor these two pages over three days, working not to finish the page, but to do as much as I had time for. And what a blessing it was! This year I’m not setting any goals for how many books I’ll read and journal through, but just enjoying my time in the Bible as much as I can every day.
I figure when I review my goals once a month with you, I’ll include what I’m learning and if you’re interested maybe even go over some of my well worn previous journals. Let me know what would help/interest you and what you’d like to see!
