It's not too late!
I had never read the Bible all the way through until about ten years ago when an 80 year old lady shared she had just finished for the first time. I thought, "There's still time!" And I am so glad I did!
You may or may not have ever read the Bible all the way through, but I am here to encourage you - it’s worth it! When we read a story by skipping around, it can become confusing. The Bible is God’s story and how He desires for us to know Him.
But the Bible is even more than a story; it’s an experience – a life changing experience! Hebrews 4:12 tells us that God’s Word is living and active; it’s unlike any other book you’ve ever read. Therefore, I created this “doable” Bible reading plan that will take you from the beginning and help you make the connections of how it all joins together into one beautiful love story.
This plan is designed with 5 readings for 5 days a week (with a bit of flexibility) to read through the Bible in one year, or take your time and read at your own pace. The "Making Connections" plan may be printed and used to mark off verses as you go.
•Flexibility: Start whenever you’re ready with a flexible start date any time of the year. Move at your own pace; although the readings are possible to be finished in a year, take as long as you need. Adapt this plan to you. No matter how you use it, this Bible reading plan will take you on a journey to better understand God’s story as a whole.
•Wiggle Room: Each week contains five days of reading – your choice of which days. Reading at least five days a week will help you form a habit; it will keep you consistent. This leaves you two extras just in case your schedule becomes super busy or you just want to have a couple of days for your choice of reading or time to study a little deeper. This plan can actually be finished in 50 weeks with fewer readings toward the end as we get into the Book of Revelation.
•Balance: Each week contains readings from Psalms for praise, Proverbs of wisdom, lots of Old Testament reading (there are 929 verses in the OT!) and a New Testament reading. This gives both a variety and continuity. Many events in the Old Testament portray God in His sovereignty and justice. Balancing this with His revealed love we see through Jesus gives us a full picture of His character balanced with justice and love, righteousness and compassion, truth and grace.
These fun daily devotions for adults or youth are perfect for busy lives wanting to stay focused on God. Let everyday objects point you to Godprints all around & connect you with His Word.

One of the longest waits is the nine months of pregnancy. There is nothing to be done to hurry it along, but in that time of waiting - there is much taking place!
Waiting is not idle; it is not empty. Much is accomplished in the wait and the outcome is so worth it!
"Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous in God's eyes, careful to obey all of the Lord's commandments and regulations."
"They had no children because Elizabeth was unable to conceive, and they both were very old."
"But the angel said, "Don't be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer. Your wife, Elizabeth, will give you a son, and you are to name him John."
"for he will be great in the eyes of the Lord."
God gave more than was expected, but all hinged on His perfect timing.
We can know God is at work even in the wait!
The full story of Zechariah & Elizabeth is found in the Gospel of Luke chapter 1 and is but one of the Bible stories of those who were a part of that very first Christmas.
