Tag: read the Bible in one year
Good Morning! So…we have completed one week using the READ SCRIPTURE APP beginning in the book of Kings. See my previous post for more information on this if you are just now joining us! (CLICK HERE TO READ THE PREVIOUS POST INTRO) WEEK 1 included…

How’s your reading going? I am doing a combination of reading and listening by using an audio Bible app:)
It’s so awesome to be able to listen to the Bible…in the car, while I’m doing laundry, etc.
For those of you who are reading the Bible in a year with the app READ SCRIPTURE…let’s agree that it’s a hefty amount of reading every day:)
Hope these little doodles help you remember this section of scripture!
For those of you who have not read about my “Read the Bible in a Year” project, I will continue to post the details for those who have “stepped into” my blog for the first time:)
My church is using the app READ SCRIPTURE. It comes with great tools and videos that introduce each book as you go. You can find it HERE
I highly recommend it!
We are getting close to the end of the Book of Genesis.
You have probably read/heard the story of Joseph and his beautiful coat. I can’t help thinking that as wicked as his brothers became, I’ll bet that many of us can relate to the feelings of jealousy they had. Dad clearly had favorites…especially Joseph. His brothers were not only feeling jealousy, but rejection and fear. Who hasn’t felt those?
When we act out of our emotions, we too, throw our brothers and sisters in a pit. 😔
So… things were’nt always peachy for the favored Joseph…and although he suffered many obstacles and trials, the Lord had a plan to use every step…for the good of Joseph, his family and the nation. Joseph was confident in his faith and did not lose hope because he knew His God to be good and faithful.
God provided exactly what Joseph needed every step of the way…even when it looked like all hope was lost.
Much like his coat, each separate color, became one, when the tailor weaved them together. It may not have looked like a beautiful coat, as the fabric sat in pile waiting to be sewn. The finished product would be hard for most to imagine…so we find it hard to grasp until it is finished. That is the thing about faith. We have to trust first….that the pile we feel under will be used for something more…something we cannot yet see…something for our good.
Joseph’s life is a great encouragement for us as we face obstacles in our life! Keep moving forward in the direction God is calling you to go and he will be faithful to provide exactly what you need. Even if you can’t “imagine” it.

Dreams can come true ❤️
Still in Genesis… Today’s section was Genesis 32-34, but I peeked ahead and watched the awesome “overview video” on day 11. We are using the app READ SCRIPTURE. It comes with great tools and videos that introduce each book as you go. You can find…
Oh I wonder so often… how can we have such a generous, loving, compassionate, forgiving, faithful, righteous Father and ever choose to turn away? Broken covenant after broken covenant…our Father’s response???? Provide for us a lasting covenant…one that we cannot break. Click on the image…
As I mentioned yesterday, my home church body has committed to read through the Bible in one year. I also confessed that the Lord has been stirring my heart to set aside some of the time I spend creating blog material to spend time ———> deepening relationships through discipleship.
So, my posts may be shorter in nature, and less frequent than in the past, but I have a feeling that I will be sharing the process with you through my journaling and doodling:)
In a week, I will also begin the study “Seamless” by Angie Smith with the ladies at my church. It is a study that tackles connecting the whole counsel of God to help us understand the “big picture” and the story of Jesus that weaves throughout the Old Testament and New Testament. A perfect addition to our church wide call to read all of scripture in 2018.
We are using an app called “READ SCRIPTURE” by Crazy Love Ministries. It’s definitely worth checking out Sisters! It provides a daily reading plan as well as additional videos that describe each book of the Bible as you go. They are very clever and helpful! The link for it is below:)
When I can, I will provide some commentary…more likely, I will be sharing some visuals (which help me to recall what I’ve learned!) for those of you who are reading with me!
Thanks so much for sharing with me. It was encouraging to hear from others who are taking this year to read the WHOLE BOOK ❤️
Check out that app!
Much love to you,
