One More Step: Finding Strength When You Feel Like Giving Up

Welcome to this month’s Bible Reading Plan & Prayer Journal!

Life is hard. Disease. Depression. Divorce. Discouragement. Despair. Death.

The temptation to quit feels overpowering, and a million reasons why you should just give up loom over your head. You’re facing out-of-control circumstances, total fatigue, and disappearing hope.

There’s sorrow, grief, and agony.

But there is also joy, grace, and relief.

This month’s Bible reading challenge is a reminder that running TO God’s Word when the first moment of despair hits is critical for the strength to keep going, one step at a time.

I want to replace feelings of despair with the truth of Scripture.

You too? Good. You’re in the right place. What if we ran to God’s Word when discouragement strikes and discovered the strength for another step?

Let’s walk together. You ready?

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 the monthly resource at the beginning of this post. This month, in addition to the Bible reading, we’re reading through my book, One More Step: Finding Strength When You Feel Like Giving Up. I wrote this book while caring for my special needs daughter, Taylor, who left this world for heaven 3 years ago. My prayer is that together, we can be reminded that we aren’t running in our own strength. The joy of the Lord is truly our strength.
