How is your walk with God?

Last year, while I was sitting in the car on the way home from Wisconsin, I thought to myself "I have this new iPhone, I have nothing to do, and I don't read my Bible enough. I'm going to read 10 chapters a day until I'm done with it" So, I downloaded the YouVersion app. I read the GOD's Word translation, and finished in a couple months, so I then went back with the NIV and read 10 chapters a day again, I finished the Bible twice by September. Then, I realized I had been reading and taking notes, but hadn't really been studying it. So, I started the New Living Translation, and I read 5 chapters a day, but then I got off track, and I ended up 'catching up' reading 20 chapters some days. I really wasn't studying it.
S0, this year, I've decided that I'm going to follow this plan on the YouVersion app on my phone. It shows you to read a couple chapters of the Old Testament and a chapter or two of the New Testament.
I challenge you to become closer to God through His Word this year. It really is amazing how much closer you are to Him when you spend time with Him and really learn what He has done. God made all this world for US, then, He sent His Son, knowing He would die, Then, He left the Holy Spirit with us, so that we could live forever with Him.
He must really love us!
