Have you ever heard someone say “When you find God’s will…” and it seemed something akin to the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow? Like maybe it exists and maybe it doesn’t?
Growing up in church, I often heard churchy-type phrases that were used over and over again. One of those phrases was “finding God’s will.” The phrase seemed elusive and mysterious when I was a teenager. As an adult, I now think of it in a completely different way.
For me, finding God’s will isn’t a “big picture” item on my “must-do” Christian list. Oh no. It’s about pursuing God’s guidance continually and knowing him so well that I have no doubt when his spirit is speaking to my heart. It’s understanding that his guidance is gentle and loving, even when circumstances are harsh. It’s knowing the promises of his word, that he is with us and longs to show us the right path, then lead us on it. I can’t wait to follow through on this month’s Bible reading challenge, Gently God Guides.
This Month’s Challenge
For the month of October, I’d love it if you would join us in reading through the Gently God Guides Bible reading plan. The Scriptures clearly promise that if we are willing to follow, then he will show us the path we should take. Ready to join in?
How to Participate
If you’ve never joined a Bible reading challenge here before, each day we follow the plan and read the passage. You can share what you are learning on social media or just keep it between you and God. My goal through the reading is to draw closer to Jesus, and I want that for you too!
For this month, we will use the hashtag #gentlyGodguides . Almost every day, I post on Instagram or Facebook about what I’m learning through the passages and sometimes I post the Bible journaling pages I work on throughout the study.
On Fridays, I post a summary of what I learned through the week here on the blog and invite you to share what God is teaching you in the comments.
Are you ready?
