Welcome to the One More Step Bible Reading challenge Week 1 summary! Wow- that’s a mouthful!
Thank you SO much for the opportunity to Periscope with you about the Bible reading challenge and my book, One More Step. I originally thought we would chat about the passage for the week, but tonight turned out to be a Q&A and improv. It was so fun to have the opportunity to connect and if you missed it, you can watch the chat here. AND join us on Thursdays at 9 pm EST for some more fun!
Let’s take a look at a summary of passages from the One More Step Bible reading challenge this week, ready?
In Psalm 18:1-6, the first phrase of the psalm arrested me. David wrote this psalm when he was rescued from the hand of Saul and his enemies. When we are at our lowest, one of the best things we can do is look back on what God has delivered us from.
Day 2 and Psalm 18:7-18 for the#onemorestep #biblereading challenge today. “From the radiance of his presence, his clouds swept onward…” Can you imagine how much power that is? It’s Monday and you desperately need strength for the week. Can I urge you to spend time in his presence? Imagine what happens in his presence! As my mom used to say, “it just might rub off on you.”
Last year I went shopping for a “sensible pair of shoes” and came home with the most unsensible. Obviously unsensible is not a word because autocorrect is going ballistic right now. But let’s just say I have an affection for high heels. Now I know there were no high heels in Bible times, that we know of. But no matter the style of our shoes, when we take one more step with God, he widens out what seems like a narrow space. I’ve been in some tight spaces in life, you too maybe? Today’s #onemorestep#biblereading in Psalm 18:30-36 reminds us that heels or no heels, we don’t have to worry about sprained ankles when we walk with him. Xo
I often fail to recognize what strength looks like. True strength comes from the Lord but I sometimes think my sense of style is more refined than his. Know what I mean? Strength can look like work clothes with bleach spots. Sometimes it looks like a linen suit. It may appear as an apron or a silk dress. Today’s#onemorestep #biblereading in Psalm 18:37-45 encouraged my heart to accept the strength he gives, no matter the task. Through his strength, we have the victory!#biblejournaling
A Note about Bible Journaling
I wanted to share a conversation about Bible journaling from the Facebook page this week because I am not a huge artist, but I do enjoy the process of art journaling. One reader wrote to me this week:
My doodles pale to yours but I do love trying. lol
You’re sweet. Trust me- I have a friend who is an incredible artist. Mine look like kindergarten. But that’s not the point of doing it, right?
Be sure to check out the One More Step Bible reading plan; you can join in anytime! Feel free to read, journal or both!
