Several of my good online friends are doing B90days this time around. I can honestly say it was a huge growing point for my faith (and life) when I read the Bible from front to back in 90 days. It was one of the darkest points of my life (when my dad was sick) and the strength I found in the Word amazed me!!
This Momma’s Guide to Bible in 90 days #b90days
I thought I’d throw out some of my favorite tips from my own experience in doing B90days.
1. Read the Word before reading anything else!!!
I didn’t read any blog posts or blog posts until my daily reading was done. I didn’t read any other books (until about half way through and I started reading 1000 gifts (but not until my daily reading was done).
2. Read on your phone.
I loved using the YouVersion reading plan. Even though I had the official B90 bible, I found that I could read at any time, and I did. I read in line at the grocery, waiting for the pediatrician, basically anytime I would’ve been on twitter or surfing, I was reading the Bible instead.
3. Just read.
This is not the time to be doing in depth study or research. I underlined and highlighted. I made notes of verses to come back to. But I only read. I looked at the Bible like a story. While I may not have gotten a ton of theology out of reading it like this, I saw the Old Testament stories and the gospel come alive on the pages before me!!!
4. Find accountability.
When I joined the B90 challenge, that is when I first started on twitter. I met amazing gals in my group and in the challenge through the twitter chats and everyday chatter. It felt so good to tweet when I had my daily reading done and it was so fun to encourage the other ladies doing the same.
5. Keep on reading
When I finished a days reading, I kept going if I could. I would try to start the next day’s reading before bed and continue through it during my morning quiet time. There were days I just couldn’t read, and I was so thankful for those days that I read ahead and had a cushion. I’m so proud to say I even finished early!!! (still gives me goosebumps to think about).
