I Read The Bible In 90 Days

I read the Bible in 90 days! Well, actually 88 but close enough. I had been given the opportunity to read along with some others from my church's congregation and I am so happy that I did! Every day from January 22, 2019 - April 19, 2019, I read 12 pages of the Bible (which might not sound like a lot but trust me, it is!). Every Tuesday evening everyone that was a part of the 'class' would meet and we would discuss what we read during the prior week and also watch a video about it. It took a total of 13 weeks to complete but it was totally worth it.


I had always tried to read through the whole Bible but always stopped around Leviticus and Deuteronomy because I seemed to lose interest so this is the first time that I read straight through and finished it all.

Of course, I have always read bits and pieces and stories but reading it all (especially at a quick pace) makes it easier to see and understand the whole picture. You can really understand the intended point from Genesis to Revelation.

I personally understand a lot more and can see how every book of the Bible is linked together from beginning to end. Before when I didn't read straight through it was a little challenging to see the context of what was happening during the time or how it related to the overall picture without doing a little digging. Doing this, I could understand more of what people were feeling or why they did certain things because I could see what they were going through to get there.

Like I've said I am so happy that I did this and I am excited to do some more studying on each part! I struggled with reading my Bible before doing this but now I am genuinely excited and interested to read and study it and I thank God for giving me the opportunity and discipline to complete it!

Since there is so much to get from reading the Bible and I had to read at a quick pace, I know that there are so many things that I might have missed. Taking the time to go back and study them is something that definitely needs to be done to grasp even more of what's offered.

If you have been wanting to read your Bible more and have been looking for motivation to do so--here it is! The more we study His word the more when can grow closer to Him.

If you want to do this challenge and read the entire Bible in 90 days I highly encourage you to do so! Let me know if you do and we can be accountability partners!

My church actually purchased materials for the 'class' that we used. If you want to buy them for your personal use or if you want your church to hold a class you can check out the materials here at scriptureawakening.com.

To make it easier for you to start your reading, I have created a reading plan image below that you can save to your phone or computer to help you keep up with each day. Feel free to share it with friends and family that might want to take part as well. If we all start to get in His Word more, transformation for the better can happen.


Again, I highly encourage you to do this challenge as well. It requires self-discipline and a motivated heart but it is definitely doable. Even though it takes about 45 minutes a day to read, if you set aside a specific time in the day to do it, it makes it easier to stay caught up and not get behind. I, unfortunately, got behind several times and had to spend a few Saturdays catching up so integrating the reading into your daily schedule is very helpful.

I hope that you seriously consider and pray about starting this reading plan. It can make a huge (positive) impact on your life. Reading the whole Bible in 90 days is a challenge, but it definitely doesn't come without reward.

Contact me through email or social media or leave a comment below letting me know if you plan to do this! I would love to pray for you as you start this journey. ♥
