Whether you’ve been reading quietly through your Bible since the first of the year, you’ve got off track (don’t give up!!!), or have no idea what I’m talking about (read this post), this bookmark may be just what you need. “Why?” you say. Well, because it is a simple little thing to help you stay in the Word of God consistently.
Just download the bookmark, print it, trim off the excess, fold it in half, and voila! you have a bookmark. One side has the reading schedule for February and the other has room for you to write out a memory verse of your choosing (scroll to the bottom for a few suggestions). I use the blank inside of the bookmark to keep a list of my prayers I like to bring to the Lord frequently.
If your looking for a small community of ladies reading quietly through God’s word together, consider joining the Quietly Thru Facebook group. Our group is still small and I still do most of the posting (boring!), but we are there to encourage each other and discuss God’s word. When you have a question about the passage you just read, this would be a great place to ask it since we’re all reading the same passages at the same time.
This will probably be the last post I publish with the monthly bookmarks. However, I’ll still be creating the bookmarks and you can still get your hands on them. Either join the Facebook group I just mentioned, follow Quietly Reminded via Facebook or Twitter, or subscribe to my newsletter. I’m going to continue sharing the printable bookmarks there.
Folks, my prayer truly is that this reading plan and these bookmarks are helpful for you and that they encourage you to be in God’s Word more — not because you have to, but because you get to. Our Bibles are the most valuable things we can ever possess. They are more than coffee table books. They are more than shelf-fillers or dust-collectors. God’s Word is powerful because it is Him speaking directly to each of us on an individual and very personal basis. So, enjoy your time in His Word, savor it all, and know that it is given to you because you are deeply loved.
Only by grace,
