Just One Hour…

Hey Y’all!!!

I don’t know about you guys but, my goal for this year was to read through the bible in a year. A thing I have tried to do many a time but have failed over and over again. A thing that I am failing at now. 😛

So while thinking about how horrible of a job I was doing at trying to catch up in my Bible reading, I thought of this. What if I read the bible for one hour. That would get me caught up, or close to it. Then this thought grew into a…what if I turned this into a ‘challenge’. The quotation marks because it isn’t really a challenge. But I figured I would try to drag you guys into this. 😉

What I have in mind if simple this.

I would like to challenge all of you guys out there to take an hour to sit down and read your bible. Not a devotional, your bible. Just read. It doesn’t matter how fast you read or how slow.

Then once you have finished reading your bible, blog (if you have a blog, or just share with someone) about what you read, and your thoughts on it.

Sounds pretty awesome doesn’t it? I think so! 😀

When will this be happening? Well, I know you guys have a life and so instead of set a particular date, I figured that I would set a week. The second week of June, the 5th to the 11th.

If this is something you guys would like to do, please share this idea and get as many people interested as you can. I think it would be a lot of fun, and I would love to see how it works out for other people. So blog about this idea, pin the image. Tell you friends about it, or do nothing. I don’t care!

If you do want to do this, please comment below to let me know, and I will add your blog inthis post! 😀

    Hey, Mary! I think this is a wonderful idea! I would love to be able to participate. Unfortunately, I no longer have a blog. Is there a way that I can participate still? This sounds like a great way to challenge me to read the Bible. I desperately need that kind of accountability. I also know that a lot of other people feel the same way. Wonderful challenge! I look forward to participating if I can!:)

      Sure! You could just share in the comments, or even if you would like you could just email me about what you read and I could post it on here. Whatever you like. 🙂

  2. Mary, this sounds awesome, I’m definitely joining the challenge! I do tons of Bible reading both for school and daily reading, so this shouldn’t be too hard for me 🙂 .
