Reading the Bible in 90 days? Is this something you have done? I know some have and I have toyed with the idea, but I always stop short of committing. There are many reasons for this. What if I get sick and I can’t finish in 90 days? What if I am so busy, that I just can’t take the time for a few days and I get behind? What if I fail? What if…??? The ‘what ifs’ in life can drive you crazy! Can you really fail at reading the Bible, even if you don’t finish in 90 days?
This year, my husband is offering different reading plans to our church family for reading the Bible. The 90 day plan is one of them. I keep trying to put it out of my mind, but I’m thinking the Lord keeps popping it back in. My husband said that you can do it any 90 days, but I know that after April 1st, my life will be extremely busy over the summer and into the fall. I think now is the time.
I hesitated to post this, because I didn’t want to attract attention to myself. I am posting as a form of commitment and accountability. I hope to post my progress or something I am learning as I go through this journey. Have you ever read the Bible in 90 days? Are you starting now? If so, please share in the comments below and let’s encourage one another. You can click on the photo below for a schedule. Will you join me?

I did this a couple years ago. I found it valuable because if I just read a couple chapters a day, I would often forget the big picture in books like Isaiah. I read you should read in your mother tongue, don’t stop to ponder, but force yourself to keep reading, and use a Bible without notes. Sometimes when I got behind, I would listen to and read the Bible at the same time to keep me going forward. And for those 3 months, I didn’t read anything else, other than the necessary e-mails, etc. My DH is in the process of doing the 90 days, and will finish the end of January. It takes him about an hour a day. I must admit, there were some Saturday mornings where I had to read for 4 hours to get caught up. I’ll be praying for you. This has great value, and you will not regret it. But don’t allow yourself to get discouraged if you come short. Like you said, one cant fail reading God’s Word, and it has value no matter how long it takes.
Thank you so much for the tips. I didn’t think about listening as I read. I did this back in college days when I had to read Acts over and over. It helped me focus.
