Reading my bible for 10-15 minutes is not so bad; although I really enjoy reading bible devotion books. Since I’ve pinned so many scripture reading plans (or reading challenges) on my “Bible Reading Challenge” board, I cherish reading and memorizing bible verses. I want to create my own bible scripture reading plan so I can write my personal bible journal. Let’s learn how to create your bible scripture reading plan.
How To Create Bible Scripture Reading Plan
- Find your theme of scripture reading plan.
- List your bible verses for your theme.
- Make schedule for your reading plan.
- Find your time to read the bible without any interruptions.
Find your theme of scripture reading plan.
You have to do your research on which theme of scripture reading plans you want to study. For example, I want to create my theme of scripture reading plan – “No More Shame.” If you are not sure how to find your theme of your scrpiture reading plans, you can try to search through Bible Study Tools. That’s where you may want to try and find your theme.
List your bible verses for your theme.
You can list 30 (or 31) days for each bible verse that talk about your theme. If you are not sure how to find bible verses for your theme, you have to take a look around the bible dictionary and concordance. For example, I look for a specific word: “Ashamed” or “Shame” through the Bible Dictionary. It is very easy to find more bible verses for the word. You do not have to worry or feel stressed about finding a perfect bible verse. No one can be perfect.
Make schedule for your reading plan.
You have to make your personal commitment to God because He wants to spend more time with you while reading the bible. You know, God is very excited to have His relationship with you and will help you grow your faith in Him. Mark your calendar for time you want to set aside for your reading plan. Otherwise, you can make a printable scripture reading plan for each month and file it in your personal planner. I love to make monthly reading plans in my bible reading planner.
Find your time to read the bible without any interruptions.
Make sure that you can find your time to read the bible without any interruptions, unless it’s an emergency. While interruptions come, you might lose your focus on reading the bible. I’d recommend that you can turn off the radio, close the door in your room, or go to your local church library (My church library opens between 10am-5pm from Monday-Saturday). At home, you can read the bible for 10-15 minutes during the morning or evening if you feel comfortable.
… And I hope that this post is very helpful.

This is very handy! I’ve been trying to figure out ways to keep up with my reading. While I have an app, I don’t always check everything off after it’s completed. This is a great way to keep your self organized.
Reading with a theme is an awesome one. Great post.
