Welcome to the February 2018 Bible reading plan week 1 summary! Wow, as we’ve walked through the True Love Bible reading plan passages so far this month, my heart has been stirred twofold. 1. I’m realizing how much God loves us. Each and every one of us. 2. I’m understanding a bit more how to show his love to others. People can be tough to love, can’t they? I mean, I struggle sometimes even with loving my own actions! But God, the eternal source of supernatural love, always loves and never gives up on us. I’m so grateful. Let’s check out the February 2018 Bible reading plan week 1 summary!
It seems like such a sacrifice to check off our spiritual to-do lists, doesn’t it? I mean, we go to church ✅ read our Bibles ✅ pray ✅ give money ✅ But all of that means nothing if the love of God is not flowing out of us, spilling into the lives of others. Which is easier? Keeping rules and following through on tasks or loving people in the messiness of life? Father, May your love sink into my soul anew today and may the opportunities you provide be signals for me, not to check off, but to show true love, the love only you can provide, especially through mistakes. Make it a thriving Thursday! Day 1 #truelovejournal #biblereadingplan
To think that he pours his very love into us! Such a precious thought of the gift of his Holy Spirit! Ps: Take 2! Sorry for posting the wrong verse this morning; clearly I need coffee before posting! Happy Friday! #truelovejournal #biblereadingplan
There is absolutely not one thing in this world that can separate you from God’s Love. That father who abandoned you? Nope. The spouse who left you for another? No way. That friend who betrayed you? No. Or what if you are the father who did the abandoning or the spouse who did the leaving or the friend who did the betraying? Nothing can separate you from the love of Christ! So push aside those feelings of abandonment, guilt, shame, betrayal, rejection and unworthiness and let God’s Love soak into your heart this morning! #truelovejournal#biblereadingplan
With all. If you’re reading along the #truelovejournal #biblereadingplan ,you may feel like this verse is a repeat. Same verse as day 1 of this plan; different gospel writer. However, this repetition is not a waste of words; it is purposeful by design. Is the task easy? No, the only way to love like this is through the love of God. Father, fill us again with your love and may it overflow on those you intersect our lives with today.
Whether day or night, his love never leaves us. The love you recognized in worship on Sunday is the same love that will carry you through Monday. Look for his love as you go throughout today! #truelovejournal#biblereadingplan Day 5
1 John 4:7-13
It’s Tuesday. What could happen if we chose to live out the love God has placed in us? If we loved others with the same love that has been lavished on us? That kind of love has been placed in our hearts by the Father! Love out loud today! #biblereadingplan
1 John 4:14-20
When we abide in God and he abides in us, fear is released and love reigns. What a beautiful, beautiful truth to begin this Wednesday! #biblereadingplan
Like a parent cradling a long-awaited newborn in the dark of the night, our Father quiets us with his love. Like an unbelievable, precious gift, God’s Love wraps around my heart and sometimes, it renders me speechless. That is how he quiets with his love. In times of enormous sorrow, while I watch slow suffering gradually overtake my girl, he hushes my heart with his presence and whispers his promises into my spirit. This is how he quiets us with his love. He saves, he rejoices, he quiets, and he exults. Love is an action word. #truelovejournal#biblereadingplan
Could I dare you to choose one Christian friend to encourage and love on today? One text, one phone call, or one message just to say I’m praying for you and God’s got it all under control, always has and always will. 🙏🏼❤ #truelovejournal#biblereadingplan
