I feel overwhelmed when I think of reading the Bible.

Reading can be difficult for people, but the good news is that the Bible is different from reading other books. Something very special occurs when we reach out to God by reading His words to us. While many books are helpful, the Bible can literally change your life.

God wants you to be successful in your reading and your understanding of what you read. When you start to feel overwhelmed by how much there is to read, ask God to help you to focus on what He wants to say to you rather than on how much there is to read.

Remember, you are not reading the entire Bible in a few weeks. You are committing to reading just one chapter each day, and when you have finished you will have accomplished an important goal—maybe one you never thought possible: you will have read through the Bible. Even more importantly, your reading will help you to know God better.
