30 Day Challenge

This morning in my Lies Young Women Believe study, I was given a challenge to spend time in God's Word every day for 30 days. I think it is important to have an intimate relationship with God, because God always loves you and will always be there for you, even when no one else is there, or you feel like no one loves you. Would you join me in this challenge? You can mix it up however you need to- whether it be that you've never studied the Bible before, and think it would be better if you only participated for 10 days, or if you already study God's Word daily, you could make a pact to study God's word for an hour every day for 30 days...Whatever floats your boat. Post your name and the date on this post so you can be accountable to us, tell a Christian adult in your life, and keep us updated on what God is showing you in His Word. He will do powerful things in your life! I recently came out of a time when my relationship with God was "dead". It was not that I wasn't believing in God. But there were no interactions. I was speaking to God through prayer, but I wasn't listening to Him through reading His Word. Then my mom talked to me about starting a Bible Study, and since then God has been showing me some pretty incredible things!

Ok, this is coming 19 days after you posted this. How are you doing? I am also going to try and take this challenge. I do spend time in the word, nearly everyday with my family, but very rarly on my own. I am going to try to spend time with the Lord everyday for the rest of the month of August. This is going to be especially hard because we are away from home right now, so my whole day is messed up and not normal. Madeline, thank you for encouraging me to do this!

Well today is the second day that I have spent time in the word on my own, and I praise God and I have been able to find time in our mixed up day to read and pray. Madeline, thank you for encouraging me to read my Bible!
