Welcome to the Perfect Peace Bible reading challenge final summary! Normally I post a summary each week, but week 3, somehow I skipped (?) So today we are wrapping up the Perfect Peace reading plan since we finished the reading on Friday. It’s incredible how much peace permeated my soul during the month of March! The readings for each day truly focused my heart on planting my eyes on Jesus. Let’s summarize the last half of the readings, ready?
Decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of another. Wow. Peacekeeping is not only reactive; it is proactive. How will you choose today? Let’s live it out in this fab Friday! #biblereading #biblereadingplan
Peacekeeping and peacemaking include careful decisions we purpose to live by. I think peacekeeping is like so many other wonderful things in life. I desire the results without the discipline. 😉 Jesus, may we determine to be peacekeepers and peacemakers, even when it’s hard. #perfectpeacejournal
2 Thessalonians 3:10-18
Now the Lord of peace give you peace. Paul desired for the church at Thessalonica to experience true peace. Peace that lasts. My prayer for you is that you know this peace today. #biblereadingplan #biblereading#perfectpeacejournal
So thankful for his love and peace this morning. Even when we fail, he is ever present. Have a marvelous Monday knowing his peace is always available in your life! #perfectpeacejournal#biblereading #biblereadingplan
When I am not feeling at peace, it is not because peace is not available. God always keeps his promises. Knowing the Lord will not remove his peace from us should help us rest well tonight, amen? ‘night! #perfectpeacejournal
There is peace in believing in the power of the Holy Spirit! He is with us and longs to provide hope for us. Jesus, may we embrace your Spirit and enjoy peace and hope on this terrific Tuesday. Amen! #perfectpeacejournal#biblereadingplan #biblereading
Only Christ can offer perfect peace- the kind that goes beyond understanding. Reminding myself of that and sharing my imperfectly perfect #handletteringpractice with you. 😉 #perfectpeacejournal #biblereadingplan#biblereading
Don’t be anxious but instead, tell God about your concerns. Then his peace will flood your soul in unexpected and unexplainable ways!! Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!! #perfectpeacejournal #biblereading#biblereadingplan
Wouldn’t you just love to see the hills break out in song while the trees kept rhythm today? Peace goes before you with Jesus in your heart! Have a thriving Thursday! #perfectpeacejournal#biblereadingplan #biblereading
Don’t wait until heaven to embrace peace! God promises unbelievable peace to those who commit their hearts and minds to Him! Sleep well knowing peace on earth is attainable because planting our eyes on Jesus brings peace! #perfectpeacejournal#biblereadingplan #biblereading
Struggling in the peacemaking department. Just being honest. But I’m reminded of the blessings that come from peace, even when it doesn’t seem to come easy. It’s always worth pausing to reboot with a peacemaking attitude! #biblereading#biblereadingplan #perfectpeacejournal
2 Corinthians 13:7-14
This day of reading, I was in the hills of WV without internet. It was a beautiful day I enjoyed both nature and my wonderful family. As I read the Scripture, I remember thinking about the word “aim.” Make restoration your goal and peace will become a way of life. So good.
Meditating on this verse this morning from the #perfectpeacejournal#biblereadingplan . It’s Monday, our family is back to routine after spring break, I feel irritated from circumstances beyond my control, and peacemaking seems a little far-fetched this morning. But as we’ve been learning all month , “the God of all peace” is greater working through us than the forces working against us. Jesus, fill our hearts with peace that overflows into our work today. May all we sow yield beautiful fruit to praise and thank you for. Amen.#biblereading Have a great day!
Good morning, Wednesday. My spiritual heartstart today is this verse from the #perfectpeacejournal#biblereadingplan .Jesus, may our decisions and reflections please you, for by doing so, our desire to please others flees away. Your peace reigns over all situations. I pray for victory over the enemy today through faith in your promises. Amen! #biblereading #prayer
Take heart. That issue at your work? He’s got it. The bill you need to find money to pay? He’s got it. A relationship gone wrong? He’ll mend it. The mistake you made yesterday? Forgotten. The addiction no one knows about? He heals. You’ve got this because take heart, He has overcome the world! #perfectpeacejournal #biblereadingplan#biblereading
Last fall God was working in my heart to provide a tangible tool that would encourage daily Bible reading and enhance our monthly Bible reading challenges. I started praying for someone to help me with this project. Little did I know that a few streets over, my friend, Mindy, was praying for ministry opportunities to help women get in the Word. Somehow in one of our “pass by” conversations between shuffling kids and work schedules and grocery shopping, The Lord connected our goals and hearts. The #confidenttrustjournal is #4 is our incredible resource lineup for this year and there is NO WAY I could do these projects without Mindy. Many folks want to study God’s Word but they have no idea where to start or how to do it consistently. These #biblereadingplan ‘s are encouraging fresh faith on a level beyond our imagination. That’s how you know it’s really God, and not us. We just get the privilege of him working through us. So very thankful for @mindykoenig and her willing hands and heart! It’s not too late to grab the April journal and join in or check out the free printable plan! And the beauty is that you can do these daily studies on your own at any time or it’s perfect for accountability as a small group! Hope you’re having a fabulous Friday!
