ONE YEAR BIBLE
Daily devotions train us to think differently and transform the spirit of our minds.
As we read God’s Word, we begin to see how God responds to things. Then, when we face similar situations, we begin to respond in the same way. Here is our church Bible reading plan. We will be following the One Year Bible reading plan that will enable us to read the entire Bible in just 15 minutes a day throughout the year.
Every year we read the One Year Bible reading plan on YouVersion. Here are a variety of options to our reading plan:

Journaling is an excellent way to record and process what God has spoken to us. Without writing our experiences down, you may forget those blessings and some very important lessons! This is something we recommend adding to our church Bible reading plan.
Take your time reading each chapter and allow God to speak to you. Look for a verse that particularly spoke to you and write it in your journal.
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this scripture down in your own words in your journal.
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Write how this scripture can apply to you today.
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say and journal about it
