It is with a sense of great accomplishment and gratefulness that I comment today. A year ago I started reading the One Year Bible blog without much hope of finishing, because of the times I'd failed before. Although I skipped out most of Ezekiel because I got really behind at one stage, I got through the rest. YAY!

Knowing that there was a community of readers doing this with me, and being able to interact with you all through comments was a key ingredient for me. Thank you to all who posted.

Mike, thank you so much. Your commitment to this blog is admirable, and your humility is inspiring. I think you must be one of Jesus' heros when I see how many lives you are touching daily through your obedience to Him.

Having read the whole Bible now, I have a much better idea of God as the beginning and the end, God working through history, God unravelling His love-plan and God reaching out to us. I have a much better understanding of Israel and the Jewish nation, and how they are a precious part of the fact that I am a Christian today. Praise You, Lord for drawing near to us. Praise You for The Message.

It is another year of going through the Bible with "One Year Bible Blog" as my guide. I've been able to use this guide now for many years. I often use the same bible, but have so much written in the margins and underlined or highlighted that I've often used a different translation each year just to get a little different 'take' on each passage. I've also extended my study of these daily readings by using an on-line commentary or a hard-copy one to get a little more insight into a particular section. I really appreciate the questions that are posed in the blog as it brings many practical and applicable issues to my own life for the day. I'm looking forward to starting all over tomorrow!

I've used this site for several years now and I'm finding that without trying, I'm actually memorizing passages. How wonderful to have the Word of God internalized. I appreciate Mike's compilation of commentary, questions, art, and music.

Thank you for your blogs here as well as with the chronological one year readings. Your insights help bring these passages to life and furthers knowledge of the Word of God!

Thank you Mike for your commitment to offering an inspiring way to read or listen our way through the Bible. The best time for me to listen to Tom Dooley read is first thing in the morning after I pour a cup of coffee and get my crocheting or knitting. The house is quiet, and it's a good time to spend time connecting to the Lord.

This is my third time through the Bible, and yet, there are times when I read or hear scripture that I don't remember every reading before. Or sometimes I will read something and want to know more about it, and it is so easy using the computer.

THe one thing that has helped me most this year, is that I have heard this phrase over and over" God is in charge." I have known this, but it really was a comfort to me with all chaos from disasters that have been going on around the world, and just from the frightening behavior of people who are out to hurt others. We don't know His plan, but we do know that He loves us, and if we show our love to Him, profess to Him that He is our LOrd and savior, there will be a happy ending!

God Bless all of you. Make finding a time and place to read your Bible a priority. It will be a blessing and expand your faith.

Mike I've been with you ever since you stared this wonderful ministry and will continue with you as long as I'm physically able. God bless you and your wonderful family Mike!

Mike I so appreciate your faithfulness publishing the One Year Bible Blog. My quiet time with Jesus is the best part of my day. I discovered your blog about five years ago and am blessed every year by your comments, the art and music, the links for digging deeper but most of all the WORD is working in me. I'm looking forward to next year. May God bless this ministry for his glory. In Jesus name amen.

Mike,
Thank you for the One Year Bible Blog!
The pictures, comments and questions in this blog encourage me to read and meditate on God's Word each day.
Reading His Word with the companion of this blog has been a true blessing. I look forward to starting again tomorrow.
Thank you Mike, and thank you to all who comment.
May God continue to use this blog to bless many with His Word of Truth, pray in Jesus' Name, amen.

may God bless you all,
Joyce

Thank you Mike for your blog. I've been doing this for quite a few years now. I sometimes get behind, usually catch up, sometimes don't get every day. It has been an inspiration and a lesson in my life in the early morning g minutes or hours. I've used NKJ and Int. versions. I have used Bible Panorama as a commentary when I want better understanding and occasionally Bob D.s commentary. They've along with your blog have been quite helpful. When I've thought I'm out of His grace, I'm reminded God is a God of second chances. This year I think I will read in Chronological order. Thanks Mike and the comments section, especially Ramona and Jenny's comments. In His grace, Alan
