So it’s February already. How are you doing on that daily Bible reading plan you committed to at the beginning of January? I so appreciated Heidi’s post on the Habit of Daily Bible Enrichment at the beginning of January. . . I’m sure you did too. How it is going, though, seriously? Have you kept up with it, or have you been struggling?
At the end of 2013, I spent some time thinking about my strategy for my quiet time for 2014. For a while now, I have thoroughly enjoyed taking small portions of Scripture each day, and really digging in to what just a verse or two had to say to me, and journaling about it. But, as time went on, I realized I was missing getting the broad view of Scripture by reading through the whole Bible in a year, as I have done so many times before. As the mother of two small boys, I knew finding time to do both would be quite a challenge. And then, I was introduced to the You Version app for my smartphone. It has ALL kinds of daily Bible reading plans built into it already, and best of all in my opinion, it will read it out loud to you, as well!! Problem solved for me! I can still enjoy my quiet time with my small portions of Scripture and my journal in the early morning, and then during the day, while performing mindless tasks like washing dishes or folding laundry, I can listen through the whole Bible. I love that my boys also are listening to it along with me.
P.S. If you search for it and it comes up with an app simply named “Bible,” that is the one. It didn’t call it You Version until I downloaded it.
