Good afternoon! It has been several years since I have posted a Bible reading plan. Thanks to a couple of emails from some of you, I got my act in gear and made a printable Bible reading plan for May.
This reading plan contains 31 encouraging Bible verses to help you understand more about God’s strength, grace, and love. I did throw in a Bible verse for mom’s for Mother’s day, but I stuck with the theme for the rest of the verses. 🙂
While you can look up each of the passages listed on the printable I created, I thought it might be helpful to list the verses here as well. Most of the verses below are from the NIV version, but there are a few from the NKJV, KJV, and the NLT as well. However, you can use whatever version you choose.
I pray these verses will encourage you in your walk.
I have created a free printable Bible reading plan which you can download by clicking the link below. Also, be sure to head to my Facebook page where I share a graphic each morning with the verse of the day.
