40 Days of Blessings!

This year for Lent, I’m going to do something different. Instead of abstaining from something like a lot of people do that time of year, I’ve decided to be proactive and add something to my daily walk w/ Christ. I’m committing myself to reading the Bible in 40 days. I’m sure a lot of people must be thinking that I’m crazy or that it can’t be done. While every Bible has a slightly different page layout, it’s only an average of 32.5 pages a day .Just think of how many pages college students read. I did; however, think that it would be easier to divide the  Bible up by whole chapters vs. verses so each day’s reading won’t be exactly the same length. If you’d like to divide it up by verse, there are 31,103 verses in the Bible so that would mean you’d have to read 778 verses/day. Please tell everyone you know about the 40 Day Blessing, let’s get as many people involved as possible!

Below you will find all 40 of the readings. Every day I will be posting the current day’s Bible reading in its entirety here. I chose wordpress because you don’t need an account to make comments and I’m hoping each blog entry will become a place for us to comment on and discuss the readings and the things that God has revealed to us not only during the readings themselves, but also just by shifting our mindset and priorities. I also need to point out that you don’t need to necessarily read your Bible. If you prefer to listen to it on your ipod or cd player, go for it. The important thing is that we take in the Word and internalize it. If one day does not allow you to read the entire section for that day, please read ahead if at all possible so you don’t fall behind. Let’s get ready for 40 Days of Blessings!
