And at the risk of sounding like Tamar Braxton, I proudly say that “she” is me, and I read His truth daily. Booooom!
I found this site some time ago and wanted to share it with you right away, but I figured I’d give it a run for myself a few times so that I could recommend it with some conviction. I can!! When I started reading with the group, they were reading from the bible app YouVersion a plan called “The Surrendered Life.” It was good; a few verses a day, some commentary from the site’s authors and a forum of other women commenting on how the word touched them that day. The next plan rolled right in and it was the Proverbs plan. Honestly, that plan changed my life. And it’s been a sustaining change in helping me to watch my mouth and my motives.
SO. what is She Reads Truth? Well, if you visit the site you’ll get the full story but the gist of it is that there were some women who looked at their lives and daily routines and noticed that engaging God through His word on a daily, consistent basis was not happening in their lives and they wanted that to change. Recognizing the power of community, they decided that they would make a decision to dig into the word daily and look for God to reveal Himself in their lives and use His word to change their lives, but this time they would do it together believing that adding accountability through community would make the difference. And it has certainly made the difference for me.
So, everyday on the site or on your mobile device, Nook or Kindle–where you can engage through YouVersion if you have the bible app, the ladies pull out verses according to whatever reading plan their engaging at the moment and offer a short commentary/devotional on those verses. Those of us who read the verses are encouraged to read the word, pray over it, think about it, then respond to it–either by tweeting it, blogging it, writing in a private journal, taking a pic and posting it on Instagram, or sharing in the comments, but always by our actions. It’s been a really great experience for me and I wanted to share with you thinking that you might enjoy it as well. Right now we have about 2 days left on the current plan, the Ephesians plan. I figured I’d let you in on my little secret now so that you could prepare to join us for the next plan! Let me know if you decide to join me!
