At the start of 2020, I set out with a group of women to read through the Bible chronologically. It was something I had been wanting to do for years, but had never been able to follow through with. I needed accountability.
I finished the reading plan the week before Christmas.
It was wonderful to not just have a plan, but to have a group of women to talk about what I was reading with.
Ever since I finished, I’ve been looking forward to 2021, debating on what to do for the coming year.
The Sojourner Prayer Journal
One of the tools I will be utilizing in my quiet time in the coming year, is The Sojourner Prayer Journal. It’s a 52 week journal I contributed to. Each week has a devotional, an area to write down prayer requests for the week, seven spaces to write out prayers, and room to record answered prayers. You can learn more about it on Amazon here.
A Gospel Primer for Christians
The other tool I will be using this year is A Gospel Primer for Christians by Milton Vincent. This short book is designed to help you preach the gospel to yourself every day. With passages to look up and reflect on, plus prose and poetic gospel narratives, this small book is powerful. I can’t think of a better way to spend the coming year, than soaking up the gospel. You can pick up a copy of this book on Amazon here.
Before deciding to take a year off from reading through the Bible (for migraine reasons), I was planning on using The Daily Walk Bible. The version I have includes 365 devotionals with the daily Bible readings. Because my head has been hurting so bad, I’ve decided to save it until next year. If you are looking for something to read, you can learn more about it here. Or pick up a copy of the Day-by-Day Chronological Bible which is what I used in 2020. You can learn more about why I chose it here.
Happy New Year!
