It’s hard to believe that 2015 is almost over!
I’ve enjoyed reading “Thru the Bible Chronologically” with many of you this past year on Facebook.
It’s been so rich and wonderful to read the comments you’ve posted, gleaning from the insights God’s given you through your reading.
If you stayed on track and read the entire Bible in a year, you deserve a happy dance and huge congratulations, my friend! To celebrate, I’d love to send you a certificate of completion – just shoot me an email with your full name and I’ll send it as soon as I can.
However, for many of us – perhaps most of us! – trying to get through the Bible in a year feels as impossible as climbing Mount Everest. We lack the know-how as well as the discipline to read the Bible systematically in any shape or form.
That was definitely true for me in the past. Because I couldn’t figure out how to do it all, I didn’t do anything at all. At least not in a meaningful way. It wasn’t until I discovered the Navigator 2:7 method that I began to experience the beauty of God’s Word for myself.
I’m praying that you’ll discover that beauty this year as we switch gears to a Bible reading plan that uses the slower pace Navigators suggests. Rather than reading three or four chapters a day, we’re going to take an entire week to cover just two to three chapters…
“Word of God Speak” allows us to read less so we can reflect more.
I’m encouraging you to record what the Holy Spirit speaks through the portions we read. Here’s a short video that explains the process…

I can’t wait to see what God has in store this year as we spend time in His Word!
In the past, I’ve hosted the Bible reading challenge at both my personal and fan Facebook pages, but this year I’m going to MOVE it all to my PERSONAL PAGE where a really special community has developed.
Though I’ll mention “Word of God Speak 2016” occasionally at my fan page, all daily reading assignments and commenting will be done over at my personal page. It’s going to be a wonderful blessing to have us all in one place!

I’m really excited about the special “Word of God Speak” Journal Jana Kennedy-Spicer and I created for this Bible reading year. With room for daily entries, it’s a simple, but powerful way to record the things God speaks to your heart.

Whether or not you take part in “Word of God Speak 2016” over at Facebook, I hope you’ll carve out time in your day to spend time with the Lord reading His love letter to you. God longs to speak to us – that’s why He gave us the Bible.
As we begin, I’d like to pray this prayer with you. It’s the prayer Paul prayed…
“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.” Ephesians 1:17
Won’t you join me as we pursue a deeper relationship with the Lord this coming year? For there’s nothing in this world that can compare to knowing Christ.
