2022 Bible Reading Plans
Make your Bible reading time even more meaningful this year by journaling!  A great way to meditate on God’s word is to write about the portion of scripture that you read each day.  There are a number of ways to do this:
Write down…
  1. A new thought about God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit.
  2. A praise or thanks to be given to God.
  3. A sin or punishment to be avoided.
  4. A command to obey.
  5. A blessing to enjoy or a promise from God.
  6. A truth to remember.
  7. A prayer that has been inspired from the reading
 
Pick up an inexpensive writing journal and make 2022 extra special by writing down your insights and reflections from God’s word.
