Finished Reading the Bible!

Posted in Personal impact/anecdotes tagged , , , at 12:00 am by sanguinemare

After reading the Bible (almost) every day for the last ~7 years, I’ve finally done it, as of a couple days ago!  This is a pretty huge milestone for me, since I’ve always wanted to actually have read through all of the Word to know what it actually says.  There are definitely some books that confuse me (not sure why Song of Songs is in there, for example, and still not fully resolved with how I feel about Job or Revelations), but I feel a little better about understanding the history of God’s people and how we are to live life, as well as to recognize when someone is taking Biblical words out of context, or claiming something is in the Bible when it’s not.  While I obviously cannot remember everything in the Bible, I do think it is important for all who profess to be Christians to take the time and try to read through it all at some point in their lives, just to have a better grasp of who God is and what’s going on.

Anyway, just wanted to share that milestone, and to encourage people that yes it can be done!  Even if it takes years to accomplish!  (Some days, I literally only read 1 verse to write about, because I was just too exhausted and/or that was it in the section).  Good luck!
