Welcome to the January 2020 Restore Me: From Hurting to Healing Bible reading challenge! If this is your first time here, then I’m so glad to have you!
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. This month I have not prepared a journaling resource. My recommendation to you is that you purchase a blank journal or this month, I’m using this journal, “My Bible Study Journal.”
Check out the details of the challenge below!
Restore Me: From Hurting to Healing Bible Reading Plan Challenge
Losing a child is unlike any other loss I’ve experienced. I’ve walked through divorce. I lost my mama to cancer. Heartache has not been a stranger to me. I could not make it in this world without my heavenly Father and his Word to strengthen and sustain me.
The last year has been an unusual one. Trying to understand how to live after Taylor’s graduation to heaven resulted in a learning curve that I never anticipated.
I think the pain pierced so deeply that almost a year later, it feels as though I am still walking around with a gaping hole in my heart. I’ve been reminded time and time again that while emotional pain runs deep, it can never run deeper than God’s love.
When life circumstances are challenging and loss has occurred, how do we start the healing process? How can such hurt and heartache ever result in anything more than agony?
The God who saves us also supports us. The God who created us also comforts us. And the God who hears us heals us.
The Restore Me Bible reading plan is focused on moving from hurting to healing. Each passage is a reminder that God hears us in our pain. He delivers and restores. His promises are true and when we don’t understand His plan or the pain feels too deep for alleviation, we can experience His soothing peace and energizing power through walking with Him.
