Welcome to the Trusting God in the Dark Bible Reading Plan & Prayer Journal!

If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the LORD and rely on your God. Isaiah 50:10b

Are you struggling to trust God because you can’t see Him in the darkness? Ever wish you could see what God is doing in a situation? Or find that you’re straining to see light at the end of the tunnel? I think every person on the planet has felt that way at some time. Over the years, I’ve heard many illustrations and definitions about trusting God. Maybe you have too. I remember a pastor who explained that he can say all day that he believes a particular chair will hold him up, but until he actually sits down on it, he isn’t exhibiting that he trusts that chair.

Honestly, I would take that illustration a couple more steps. I would say that true trust is not just sitting on the chair but standing on the chair. And I would even take it a step further to say that if you stand on the chair and the lights go out while you remain standing? Now, that’s genuinely trusting!

What does trusting God look like?

You see, trusting God usually means we can’t see the work He is doing on our behalf. From our human perspective, darkness has saturated our circumstances. Whether discouragement, despair, disease, or death, we struggle to view what lies ahead, and even when we look up, there is no light to be found.

I have always shared God’s Word with you from my own experiences. I wish I could share with you that I’ve mastered this topic and that’s why I’ve written the Trusting God in the Dark Bible Reading Plan & Prayer Journal. But the truth is that I’m still learning how to trust God in all situations. During the next 31 days of walking through the Scripture, I’m walking alongside you on the growth curve!

So here we go. Let’s take a peek at David, Daniel, and many others who serve as our examples of learning to trust God in all things- especially the dark.

Trusting God in the Dark

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 35 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! This month’s journal is available for purchase as a digital download.
