Welcome to the True Love Bible Reading Challenge week 1 summary! I’m thrilled that you would be a part of the Bible reading challenge and I have enjoyed the first week of reading so much!
Because we had a couple days left in last month’s In His Presence Bible reading after Friday, I added the last couple days of last month’s challenge to the week 4 summary. You’ll find the links at the end of this post.
And here we are on the first Friday of February! Wow, this week flew by for me. I’ve been preparing for the One More Step LIVE Bible Study that begins next Thursday. When the 6 week LIVE teaching is completed, I will be offering an online Bible study for One More Step. Stay tuned for all the details!
And now the True Love Bible reading summary!
Circumstances were messed up around our house today. I caught myself not feeling the love for others I mentioned this morning. But I managed to circle back to this reminder. #truelove #biblereading#noteworthytruth #bibleartjournaling#biblejournaling
To think about the kind of love God has for us is beyond our comprehension. He loves us so much that not only did He give His son to die for our sins, but he poured his love right into our very beings by giving us the Holy Spirit to live in us. He doesn’t love us at arm’s length; He loves us from heart’s depth. If you’re feeling unloved today, whisper this verse to your mind and let it sink into your soul. God loves you so dearly that he wants to be with you every moment of every day.#truelove #biblereading Romans 5:1-8 NLT
You’ve passed through dismal days, walked through dark valleys, and scaled life mountains of dangerous proportions. Maybe you’re in the middle of deep struggle right now. I’ve personally faced divorce, disaster, death and disease. To say it is painful is a complete understatement. But no matter how rough the path, nothing, NOT ONE THING, can separate us from the love of God. When the weight of this world feels more than you can bear, remember the immeasurable love of our Almighty God and precious Savior!! Let his love wrap around your mind, heart, and soul today. #truelove #biblereadingRomans 8:31-39
The second commandment is like the first commandment. We read about the first commandment on the first day of our #truelove Study. We know it: Love God. And yet In the words: “Love your neighbor like yourself,” Jesus took it up a notch. It’s not enough to love our neighbor. We are to care for them as if they are our own flesh and blood. Their needs first. The second commandment is like the first–True love requires supernatural love– only God can provide it. Let’s ask him for it today!#biblereading
What a wonderful reading plan this has been so far! I’ve truly enjoyed the week of reading and I’d love to hear from you! What did you learn through the Bible reading this week?
By his grace,
