 How can we defeat the darkness? Through filling our lives with the light of God’s Word.Light is living in God’s heavenly truth. Join us in reading your Bible daily in December and enjoy a lighter, brighter world! #thelight

Years ago when our family was young and small, my husband and I were strolling through Sea World when we entered a tunnel. Now imagine plush greenery and beautiful flowers, clear skies and bright sunlight. The weather was so gorgeous that my head was practically in the clouds, only there were no clouds. That’s just how wonderful this day was.

Until right after we entered a tunnel. We had turned a corner and suddenly, all ears of our party heard a “clunk.” This lovely clunk was my knee against a bench, which I somehow totally missed seeing! The sudden change from bright sunlight to the somewhat dark tunnel caused me not to see what was right in front of me.

Have you ever been there? That situation on which you glance back and think “How did I miss that?”

It’s because of darkness. How can we defeat the darkness? Through filling our lives with the light of God’s Word.Light is living in God’s heavenly truth.



This Month’s Challenge

While we sometimes think the way ahead is dark and dreary, God’s Word bring light in the darkness. When we can’t see ahead, his light shines to show us the way. This is how we continue to take one more step. 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 #thelight . 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.

Additional/Optional Bible Reading Challenge Features for December


Each Thursday at 9 PM EST, I’m going to be on Periscope to discuss the passages we’re studying this month. Woohoo! Can’t wait for that. Tune in for the first session on Thursday, December 3. What’s Periscope? A super cool app that allows me to chat real time with you anytime, anywhere, as long as you log in to listen. Don’t forget to download it before then! Follow me @rachelwojo.

Bible Journaling

As you may know, I’ve been working on learning to Bible journal a little art and since you’ve been asking, I’ve got a FANTASTIC tool to help us both consistently read God’s Word, study it, meditate on it, and enjoy it. This free printable One More Step Bible Journal Suggestion Guide is going to give you a way to process the Bible reading through your choice of journal writing, art, or both.

(You can find the tool mentioned above right here: Bible Journaling Guide)
