2016 Bible Reading Schedule {preview}

DSCN8980 - Version 2

This is a teaser post, looking forward to the unveiling of the 2016 Bible Reading Schedule, which will be published on December 7, 2015 as an overview.  I don’t know about you, but it is amazing to me that 2015 is drawing to a close!

You may be looking for something new to try in your daily Bible reading.  Two years ago I was looking for a chronological Bible reading schedule, and not finding what I was looking for, I decided to create my own.

2016 is the third year in the process of making a manageable schedule, which is divided between four areas:  Psalms, Proverbs, Chronological Narrative, and Letters.  The Psalms and Letters are one year schedules.  Proverbs and the Chronological Narrative books are three year schedules.

The next post, the overview, will go into a bit more detail about the schedule specifics for 2016, and explain any changes from the 2015 schedule.  It will explain how to use the plan, and where to find printables to aid in implementing  it.  At this point everything is free for your personal use.

If you just want to follow the schedule online, the daily Vessels for the Master’s Use posts will provide the daily reading for you.  See you next week for the unveiling!

I hope you are looking forward to 2016 and plan to put reading

God’s Word high on your list of priorities.  

You will be blessed!

Inspiring Hymns #271

It Is Well with My Soul

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea-billows roll;  Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, tho’ trials should come, let this blest assurance control, That Christ has regarded my helpless estate, and hath shed his own blood for my soul.

My sin — oh, the bliss of this glorious tho’t — My sin — not in part, but the whole — Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more, Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight, the clouds be rolled back as a scroll, The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend, “Even so” — it is well with my soul.

Chorus:  It is well, it is well, it is well, it is well with my soul.

heart hiding, Scripture Memorization

The Measure of God {heart hiding 15/45}

The Measure of God {heart hiding 15/45}  Heart Hiding is hiding God’s Word in our heart by memorizing whole books of Scripture.  To read more go to the Heart Hiding page.

This is Week 45 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10.  How are you doing, my friend?  Don’t be discouraged.  Just keep working at it, and don’t give up.  I can personally testify to God’s faithfulness in this discipline, under the most trying circumstances.  

This is Week 45 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10,  where we are memorizing  2 Corinthians chapter 10, verses 12 and 13:

12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.

2 Corinthians 10:12-13

Paul talks about those who compare themselves and measure themselves by human measure, when it is God Whose measure should be our only concern.

Do you seek the approval of men, or of God?

This is the final chapter for 2015 — can you believe it???  Only two weeks left, five more verses!!

If you have a comment or question, please use the comment box at the end of the post or the contact form at the top of the page.

Don’t forget to review the previous weeks’ verses :-)  

The key to memorization is review!

Review 2 Corinthians 6:1-18; 7:1-16; 8:1-24; 9:1-15; 10:1-11.

Have a great week working on these verses.  See you next Sunday.  God bless.
