She Reads Truth

One of my goals this summer was to find a way to spend time with the Lord every single day. I had attempted to read the Bible this year and throughout the school year finding time every day to read the daily section (which usually wasn't incredibly inspiring) was hard for me to encourage myself to do. With that in mind, I wanted a program that was do-able, which the Once-A-Day Bible was not. 

About a week ago I was on Instagram and saw a #shereadstruth hash-tag and was wondering what it was referring to. I followed the tag and found tons of pictures from women who were spending daily time with the Lord, reflecting about it, then posting it on Instagram. I was inspired. There were thousands of pictures and I was looking at them all, I didn't look at Twitter or Facebook on my iPhone for days. I knew I'd found something good!

I logged on to my computer and found SheReadsTruth.com, a community of women reading His truth daily. I'd found exactly what I needed! I was late to find their site so their devotional was already 3/4 of the way through but I started it anyways. I loved it. We're using the YouVersion Bible app and the first devotional we started with was Soul Detox

I found it inspiring and felt God working inside of me after reading it every day. I started to build my relationship with Him and it was beginning to turn in to the relationship that I desire with the Lord. I've found myself questioning my actions and realizing bits and pieces of scripture that I'm beginning to remember. I've been changed and challenged throughout the ten days of this study so far and today could not have been a better day for me to share this with y'all. 

Yesterday was the day that the Soul Detox devotional finished and today they started a new devotional titled Living the Surrendered Life. Many are still working with Soul Detox (I know I am!) and it is such an inspiring devotional to work with and I hope you to start one of these devotionals today.

Why? Because there is an entire community of women ready to support you in this journey. There are many social media sites that are bringing us all together to show us that we are not alone in our journey with Christ. I hope that all of you who find my blog realize God working through me and that this little spot on the Internet is a testament to Him.

I know a year ago I would never have thought that I'd be writing this post. My nerves are still present with sharing my relationship with Christ and my faith. But I am comforted by knowing that I have a community around me that supports me and believes what I do. I encourage you to find time today to spend with the Lord, because he treasures each and every one of us. I hope your path to finding Christ is one that grows and shows you what a joyful life that you can have with Him in it!

The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people of his treasured possession,
out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.
Deuteronomy 7:6
