Light of the World Bible Reading Challenge

Over the last week, the time has gotten away from me, and I’ve walked my son’s dog, Kimber, after dark. I’ve watched as, neighbor by neighbor, homes have lit up in preparation for celebrating the birth of Jesus.

A little light can go such a long way. I noticed, especially on these walks, that when each home is lit up, the overall effect is multiplied.

If you’re like me and the darkness of this world feels overwhelming, then now is the perfect time to focus on remembering that Jesus is the Light of the world.

There is no darkness so dark that his light can’t penetrate.

When we soak in His Word, living in the light of heavenly truth, our lights grow in intensity. No one hides a light in the closet and closes the door. By soaking in his light, we fuel up to spread that light to others.

If you long to see hope in the darkness and shed light in a hurting world in need, then this Bible reading plan and journal is for you. Let’s spend the next 31 days basking in what God’s Word says about light dispelling the darkness, reminding our hearts that there truly is light at the end of the tunnel.

INTRODUCTION to the Challenge

Each month I host a monthly Bible reading plan and journal challenge to help our community enjoy reading God’s Word together and encourage our hearts to be faithful to Him.  Together, we have completed over 40 Bible reading plans, including both annual and monthly reading challenges. I’ve developed all sorts of strategies to help us read God’s word faithfully and there is nothing like this monthly system we are working through together.

Many readers have requested that I list our monthly resource at the beginning of this announcement post because you already know you want it and don’t need the details. So here you are! This month’s Bible reading plan includes a devotion AND journaling section, available for purchase as a digital download.
