It's taken me 47 years, but I've actually finished reading the Bible from cover to cover! Truthfully, it's taken me just a little over a year of daily reading. I made a commitment last year to read the entire Bible.
I had one of those moments, after watching others just open the Bible to a passage that had an answer they were looking for. I prayed and asked God, which book and verse was right for me and he answered "start at the beginning". My reply was "are you sure"? (I didn't understand yet, that you should do what God tells you without question, but with faith) "Yes, start at the beginning. I have something for you when you are done". So, day after day and a little over a year later, I've read it!
Now, I'm going to go back over it and begin individual book studies. Anyone have a favorite book or passage?
