1 Year, 5 Months , And 26 Days

I reached a goal of mine this morning. I finished reading the entire Bible.I do not write this to try to brag or draw any attention to myself, because honestly, it's really kind of embarrassing that it took me this long. I have been a follower of Jesus Christ since I was 9 years old, and it took me until I was 37 to read all of God's writings to me.

I had set a goal, a few different times in my life, of completing this, but I finally got serious about it last year. I started a 1 year Bible reading plan using the You Version app on January 1st of last year and today I finished, 1 year, 5 months, and 26 days later. ( again, clearly I have no reason to boast.)

If I were to summarize what I've learned through this reading in just one sentence it would be this: I have so much more to learn about my God, who knows me so well, and yet still loves me so much.

So tomorrow I begin a new reading plan.

Through this post I just want to give thanks and all glory to God.

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen. (Revelation 22:21 ESV)
