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 rhondahopper@journeyconnection.com 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!
