31 Days Of Strength In Scripture


I almost took a blogging hiatus.

And then I went the other way and decided to write a post every day for the entire month of October.

I know. It sounds crazy to go from one extreme to the other, especially considering I've barely found the time to write one or two posts a month for the past year, but it's funny how perspective can change things.

I had a lot of good reasons for my initial desire to take a break, mainly because there's just not a lot of time in the day, and I felt as though I could use a little shift of focus to some other writing endeavors, but then I had a dear friend tell me how much she could relate to one of my recent posts, and I remembered why I started doing this to begin with.

I truly believe we find strength in each other's stories, which is why those stories are important to tell. It has often been through someone else's words that I have found strength, and hope, and love, and all of those things that we are on this earth to give each other.

Words have the power to give life.

So I want to delve into that story that was written to you and I so long ago about the purpose and meaning that we crave each and every day. I want to share with you how that story impacts my life, how it inspires me, how it encourages me. It's a story that I neglect too often, and I hope that partaking in this challenge changes that.

I invite you to join me as I do a little Bible-studying and share some of my personal experiences in light of key scriptures and spiritual truths. It will be a journey for me just to be more intentional about tuning in to how God is working in my life.
 
Bible Verses About Strength
 
"And let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near." Hebrews 10:24-25
 
I don't know if I can keep it up for the full month, but I bet you'll have fun watching me try. You may also find many other writers on many other topics for this 31-day challenge here.

Check back, and I will post the links to each of the 31 days below.
