Welcome to the Restore Me from Hurting to Healing Bible Reading Challenge

You’ve experienced brokenness on some level. I don’t know if you’ve lost a loved one, experienced disease, or encountered heart-breaking circumstances.

Maybe the suffering has been long, and the wound in your heart feels like a gaping hole, racked with pain. You will walk the earth for the rest of your remaining days with emptiness and pain that you never wished for.

The word “healing” is an interesting word. As a word nerd, I checked out the dictionary definition of “healing,” and it can be an adjective or a noun. It can stand alone or describe another word. As a noun, it means “the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again.” As a verb, it means “tending to heal; therapeutic.”

Do you know what’s striking? Neither definition is instantaneous. Each one indicates that healing is not typically a flash moment with a sudden change, but it is a gradual, moment-by-moment process.

I think most of us prefer the “blind man healed” kind of miracle.

We want God to touch our hearts with one Scripture, one moment, or one message and experience full, complete, miraculous healing of our hearts. Now I know God CAN do this, as evidenced throughout the Bible, and yes, He’s still fully capable of instantaneous healing today, but the question is:

How much heart-healing are we ready and willing to experience? And if we are willing, how do we receive that healing?

Dive into the Restore Me: From Hurting to Healing Bible Reading Plan and Devotional with me as we discover the path to embracing God’s healing hand on our hearts.

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!

    I order the book from Amazon this morning. I should be getting it on Tuesday. I can’t wait. I’ve been getting the emails. I had a late start, I haven’t checked my email due to my Chronic Pain…. I checked it on the 1st. The day you guys started. I was thinking of doing the digital, but I prefer the book.
    Thanks for all you do Rachel, May God continue blessing you and your family.

    1. Bless you, Silvia! I Hope you are enjoying the book.

    I purchased the Restore Me From Hurting to Healing bible study plan from Amazon. Aside from the private Facebook group, is there any other way to get communication on this study? For example, if there are emails, how would I receive those?

    1. Hello Carla! Thank you for purchasing! We hope you are enjoying the book. If you download the free printable in this post, you will be on the email list and receive the emails Rachel sends out that pertain to the challenge. Hope this helps. Blessings to you!
