At the beginning of 2021 I made a commitment to read the Bible first thing in the morning. This involves me picking up my phone and getting on the YouVersion Bible app before I click on Facebook or the Weather Channel. This new habit has really helped me to start my day off right. It has given me a high place to launch from. It has given me a solid foundation for living my life with God as my main focus.
In a world where I am surrounded by chaos, I know this is the best way to start each day! I have more peace and less anxiety in my life as a result of daily devotions and Bible reading. I am certain that God loves me and has the best plans for my life. I am certain that I am a stronger Christian. In these uncertain times, these certainties go a long way to a happier life.
Journey Church would like to make it easier for you to find a devotional plan on the Bible app! A plan has been selected that goes along with each week's message. Most plans are 5 days long. This week’s plan is called, “More God, Less Guilt”. Check it out! If you are unsure about how to use the app, I made a Facebook Live video about it on October 4 in the Journey Church Online Group. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Finally, imagine how you would be a stronger follower of Christ if you had been reading the Bible every day this past year. Start today, and at this time next year, you’ll be able to see what a difference making a commitment to daily Bible reading and devotions can do! I’m excited for you!
