LIFEJOURNAL READING PLAN

This reading plan is designed to encourage you to consistently spend time in Scripture, so it becomes a life-giving habit in your life.

The plan will take you through:
The entire Old Testament in one year by reading four chapters 5 days a week.
The entire New Testament in one year by reading one chapter 5 days a week.

You can choose whether you want to just read the Old Testament, the New Testament, or the entire Bible.

How do I join the plan?

You can get weekly reminders about the reading plan through text by texting “BIBLE” to 601-397-6111. 
You can pick up a LIFE Journal on Sunday mornings to record your T.A.S.T.E. notes.
You can view the entire plan below and you can download & print the LIFE Journal Calendar.

Here’s how to get the most out of your Bible reading:

Use this acrostic for the word TASTE to experience God through His Word.
T = Time
Make time in your day to spend with God, reading the Bible.
A = Ask
Ask God to speak to you through His Word. If there is unconfessed sin in your life, confess it to God, and ask Him forgive you. You will be able to hear from God more clearly when you approach Him with a clean heart.
S = Scripture
Read your LIFE Journal scripture for the day. Write out the verse(s) that stood out to you most. Consider memorizing the verse(s).
T = Truth
Write down a truth you learned from the verse(s) and how you will apply that truth to your life.
E = Express
Express your thoughts to God through prayer and worship. Write out a prayer to God or lyrics of a worship song that express your heart to God.

LIFE Journal Resources

Use these linked resources (or many others) to help you understand and apply what you read in the Bible.
  • The Bible Project - Short animated videos giving an overview of each book of the Bible. These are best accessed through YouTube.
  • The Bible Recap - Short audio podcasts to help you understand each chapter in the Bible. Many episodes talk about multiple chapters. You may need to skip around because the podcast was made chronologically vs the front to back style we are reading the Bible in. These are best accessed through your favorite podcast app.
  • Through The Word - An app that will allow you to read the Bible and read it to you. Each chapter of the Bible also has audio commentary to help you understand what you read. These audio commentaries are best accessed through their app.
