Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction. Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors. As a dream when one awakes, So, Lord, when You awake, You shall despise their image. Thus my heart was grieved, And I was vexed in my mind. I was so foolish and ignorant; I was like a beast before You.
Is this similar to our situation when we find our feet in slippery places and ar consumed with terrors? Have you ever awakened during a dream, covered with the cold sweats? Not able to know where you are or why? Have I learned to call on the LORD to help me despise those frightening images and name them as they truly are? The minions of Satan?
Yes, I am often foolish and ignorant with all the spiritual sensitivity of a beast. Put your loving arms around me, LORD, carry me into the bosom of Your peace.

Morning Psalm 19, Noon Psalm 119:41-48, Evening Psalm 65.
Alternate Reading Plan based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.
Set your own up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits.
I suggest either setting aside a period of the day to read all, or break the readings up into morning, mid-day, and evening series. Both approaches have their advantages, and both will build an awareness of the Bible as a whole over time.
