BRIDGE BIBLE READING PLAN
Reading your Bible is the key to transformation.
We want you to connect with God! More than anything else.
Establishing a quiet time is all about habit, and can prove difficult. We hope this reading plan can help you keep going in the right direction. Take it one day at a time and begin to build this new habit.
You can read in a paper Bible or download our Bridge app here. Or download the YouVersion Bible app here.
Each day has two sections. See the schedule below for details.
Every time you read a passage, think about...
1. What I learned.
2. What I need to change/do.
3. Pick a verse and memorize it/meditate on it (think on it).
Try to read your Bible each day!

How To Have a Quiet Time
We believe a quiet time is essential to your growth as a follower of Jesus. In fact, it is easily one of the most important parts of your entire walk. We hope the following tips will help you establish a consistent quiet time.
1. Establish Time/Location
While it can be hard to find the perfect quiet time place, we believe it's worth the effort. Whether a room in your house or a local park, on the train or on the treadmill, the location matters. And nail down a daily time to do it. We can all procrastinate, so an established time should help your consistency.
2. Read the Word
Using the plan above, read slowly through today's chapters. Take notes in the journal on your reading by writing down what you learn, the ways God is speaking to you, and how you will apply what you read. We have journals available at The Bridge at our Welcome Center. Or you can start your own.
3. Memorize / Meditate
Choose a verse from your reading and write it in your journal. Commit it to short-term memory and take the verse with you that day (type it into your phone or write it on a 3x5 card, etc.), referring to it, thinking about it's meaning and how you can apply it, through the day.
Maintain a prayer list and pray through it, using the acrostic "p-r-a-y" to organize your thoughts and to keep you on track.
P Praise & Thanksgiving – Use this time to worship God for his greatness and to thank Him for His goodness to you.
R Repent – Confess any known sin and ask God to forgive you and to gain victory.
A Another – Pray for the needs of others. Keep a list of requests and people you are committed to pray for.
Y Yourself – Don't be afraid to go to God for your needs and the desires of your heart.
