Hi and welcome to the No Fear Bible Reading plan and journal week 1 summary! Whew, that’s a mouthful, isn’t it? If this is your first time here, then I am so glad to have you. Each month I host a Bible reading challenge and each week, our community glances back at the week before to review and retain what we read and learned. What a wonderful week of reading we’ve experienced so far in this month’s challenge of choosing faith when we feel afraid. Let’s review!
If you are looking for peace in this world, you’ll be searching a long time.
And if fear tries to grip your heart on Monday because you just don’t know what the week will hold, then remember Jesus’ words: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” Jesus, help me remember that you are always near and I don’t have to fear. Let my faith be stronger than my fears today. Provide Holy Spirit reminders of this promise throughout this day; I need you, Lord. I praise you for strength and courage. Amen.
It’s day 1! Grab a Bible reading plan and journal or printable and let’s fight fear with faith for the entire month of October!

Father, I need your help today. Let my faith be bigger than my fears. Let me know your love so intimately that its perfection overwhelms all fear. Thank you, Jesus. #nofear #nofearjournal#biblereadingplan
1 John 4:13-21
There is no fear IN love. I remember when I fell in love with my husband. And though our love was far from perfect, we felt invincible. World-conquering even. 🙂 What If today we were so in love with Jesus, we allowed his love to encapsulate our hearts fully? There would be no fear! Go forward in confident love and have a wonderful day! #nofear#nofearjournal #biblereadingplan#biblereading
Jesus, let me remember the battle is yours. When fear tries to war against my faith, give me strength. When fretting slips into my thoughts, give me a sound mind. When feelings of being afraid threaten, empower me with the ability to trust you more. Amen.

There is no reason to be fearful, anxious, or fretful. The One who redeemed your life from the pit provides the redemptive power to live outside of it! You will pass through waters; but He is with you. You will walk through raging streams, but they have no power to take your breath. You will endure fiery trials; but you will not be consumed by the flames! Because the God who ransomed You has a work to do in and through you. Don’t be afraid of this world and the circumstances it throws at you, because you are precious in the eyes of God. You are His and He only ever wants the best for you that will bring glory to Him. Hallelujah and have a fab Friday! #nofear #nofearjournal#biblereadingplan
“I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”I’ve read the verse hundreds of times but right now I’m taking a crash course in believing it and doing it. Praising God through suffering is not my natural recourse. My flesh doesn’t choose pain. My heart doesn’t choose suffering for my Taylor girl. But I can honestly tell you I’ve never felt God’s presence, his sacredness and holiness as intimately as I have in Taylor’s room for the last couple weeks. His mercy and grace is showering down over her and I can hardly believe that I’m seeing it. Even through fear of what happens next, I am ever calling out to Him and yes, he is delivering, moment by moment, one day at a time. Thank you, Jesus. #nofearjournal#nofear #biblereading #biblereadingplan
3 times. 3 times in just 8 verses, Moses tells the children of Israel the same thing. God goes before you; don’t be afraid. God goes before you; don’t be afraid. God goes before you; don’t be afraid. Why did he keep saying it? Because they, like us, were prone to forget. They got distracted. They looked at the circumstances larger than them instead of looking at God who is larger than life. Father, help us remember today that You go before us and for that reason, we have nothing to fear. #nofear#nofearjournal #biblereadingplan#biblereading
