Day 1 – Pep Talk Time
Good morning to YOU!
Here’s your FIRST morning pep talk for our 21 Day Bible Reading Challenge….
Our FUTURE is the ripple effects of the daily choices we make TODAY.
To read our Bible today is a CHOICE. (The perfect choice, of course!)
How do we make the wisest of decisions without God’s Wisdom? How do we build a relationship with God when we don’t let Him speak to us through His Word — and when we fail to communicate back to Him through prayer?
Aren’t there thousands of Christians missing a boatload full of goodness that God has for them because they don’t read their Bible. Don’t be one of them!
Many FEAR that if they commit their life to God, He will ask them to do things they don’t want to do.
They forget that we are the HAPPIEST in the CENTER of God’s Will…and He has thoughts of PEACE toward us to give us an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Oh, how so many miss the JOY of walking close to the Lord Jesus! They miss learning about the wonderful promises of God. They miss the Biblical principles that help us make right choices and avoid wrong choices.
Do NOT FEAR to commit your life to the Lord! Make a commitment to God this morning to spend some time with Him each day.
Complete Today’s Challenge:
Please spend at least 10 minutes today reading God’s Word. If you have time, write at least ONE Bible verse in your journal. (*There’s 10 Bible Verses at the end of this post — you can choose one of those to write in your journal, if you wish.)
*Would you like to share a comment below this post about your own personal commitment to draw closer to God this year? Or simply pipe in that you’ve read your Bible today.
I would love to hear from my readers! I’m in this WITH you by challenging myself as well!
(Note: I found a mistake on the Bible Reading Printable that I created for you. Feel free to download a fresh copy if you downloaded yours before 5:15 p.m. CST on Wednesday.)
