Welcome to the One More Step Bible Reading summary week 2! I’m thrilled you’re here and let’s review the week of Bible reading and events. Ready?
Thank you SO much for the opportunity to Periscope with you about the Bible reading challenge and Bible reading.So sorry for the tech issues!!! Join us on Thursdays at 9 pm EST for some more fun!
Yes, David closed out this beautiful psalm declaring the greatness of God. But the Lord still lives, amen? His great victories come in all forms and I’ve seen them. Victory over depression. Victory over recession. Victory over trying to make an impression. Victory over earthly possessions. Victory over the worst obsessions. Victory over guilt through confession. He still lives and yes, he still gives great victories. Now let’s live so that we can claim the great victories he offers!!
This passage is a favorite of mine. Verse 7:
The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
It’s morning and it’s Monday! But the perfect Monday morning revelation awaits. You don’t have to walk alone. You are not alone! So whether the work seems overwhelming or perhaps unappreciated, you’ve got help. And more than that, your Helper is stronger than you’ve ever dreamed of being. Let Him be your strength today!
Sitting still often requires more strength than moving forward. To hold oneself back from barging on is more difficult than to stop and wait for God. Strength can look like being still.
I woke up with a weak spirit this morning. And I was battling the negative whispers that there was too much on the agenda today and no way I could get moving the right direction. But I have learned to RUN to God’s word when discouragement strikes and this morning’s #onemorestep #biblereadingwas exactly what God had for me. I don’t have to begin with all the answers; I only need to follow his guidance. Because HE knows the way!
Sometimes the grief of watching our Taylor slowly deteriorating catches me in the night. And I weep the tears that no one sees but God. I know you’ve wept with only God watching. But we have his promises and this one from the songs of David declares it loud and true. Joy comes in the morning!! One day Taylor will no longer suffer and on that glorious morning, joy is all she will know. No more crying. No more pain. Every tear will be wiped away because joy has come. Just think about that for a midweek minute and be empowered to take #onemorestep on the journey of life. Psalm 30:1-5 for the #biblereadingtoday!
He is there. With you. With me. And the strength he provides is unlike any other. Last time I checked, the only thing that can move a mountain is faith. When you stand in his strength? Nothing can move you unless God does it. You are strong.
