Welcome to the Soul Secure Bible reading plan week 2 summary! The days and weeks are flying by; can you believe we are already on week 2 of this month’s Bible reading challenge? For those of you who are here for the first time, each month I host a daily Bible reading challenge and each week, we glance back at the Bible reading plan and journal. We review the verses I highlighted in the daily reading. Week 2 proved to be another challenging week for me personally but God’s Word truly is our source of strength, isn’t it? Let’s take a glance back at week 2 to remind ourselves how to truly win over worry. Ready?
When I cast my anxiety on Jesus, then my hands are free to cling to Him!
God helps us through every situation, every circumstance, and every emotion of life. We can be confident that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Amen. #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan
The God who created the hills created your life. He is not going to sit by and just watch you falter. No way. You are his redeemed child and he longs to foster and nurture you. So when you’re tempted to think he doesn’t care or worry that he will miss something, go back and read today’s #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan again, Psalm 121. Your God never sleeps. Even the sun and moon bid his command. He loves, protects, and preserves you for you are His. No need to be anxious on this Monday! He’s still got the whole world in his hands, including the issues you face today.
1 Corinthians 10:9-13
He is faithful. Always has been and always will be. When the what-if’s consume us. When the what-will-happen’s overwhelm us. When worry feels like the biggest temptation of all, remember our God’s faithfulness. When it is too big for us, he provides a means of escape. He is the Way of escape! Take Tuesday in his strength! #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan #winningoverworry
If fear, doubt or worry is ruling my heart, then guess who’s on the throne? Me. It’s tough to admit that worry is often a form of self-absorption, but that’s the plain truth. So on this wonderful Wednesday, I’m dethroning my worried ways to follow the instruction of this verse. Letting go and letting God. Care to join me? #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan
4:55 am and I heard her groan. When my Taylor girl begins a seizure, she will often cry out in a very distinct yet uncontrolled tone. Just before it happens, she gasps for air and that gasp is usually what wakes me up. As it did this morning. We’ve been going at this business of living in a fallen world with incurable disease for over 21 years. I honestly don’t know any other way than to cry out to God on behalf of my girl. I’m just so thankful that he hears my cry no matter the hour of the day or night. That my worry and complaint never goes unnoticed or unheard. It’s the same for you, Friend. “He redeems my soul in safety
from the battle that I wage.” I don’t know what battle you are waging, but don’t hold back from telling God about it. Prayer always brings comfort. Prayer reminds God of the status of your heart, his most precious treasure. #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan #winningoverworry
Nothing can separate us from our Savior’s love. Not one thing. So grateful. Hope your Friday is filled with faith in place of doubt, love in place of fear, and victory in place of worry! #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan
Not only are you under God’s continuous watch, he’s got you in the center of his eye. You are His and there is nothing to worry about. He is your refuge and strength for whatever this day holds!
Today my one journaling takeaway is to pray for protection against worry. “I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God; incline your ear to me; hear my words.” Have a super Saturday! #biblereadingplan #soulsecurejournal #winningoverworry
2 Timothy 1:1-7
The last two weeks have been nerve-wracking as our girl has struggled. It’s been a process of praying for her ability to swallow to return post-seizure. Today we fully recognize that while fear threatens to overtake us, love is far more powerful. And we’re grateful that she is holding her cup and drinking out of all by herself. ❤🙏🏼 #winningoverworry #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan
Thanks so much for being a part of our community! Looking forward to the week ahead!
