There is this thing spreading around the blog world like wildfire. It's called #SheReadsTruth. Basically, a few bloggers realized they wanted to do a Bible study together, so they did. Well, rather quickly, many other people joined in! Now, they coordinate bible studies with the YouVersion Bible app so everyone can join in. I won't get too much into the history, you should definitely go to the website and read all about it.
I love the encouragement. I love how the blog community and even those outside the blog community encourage each other to read God's word. Nobody is ashamed to tweet a verse that stuck out to them, or their thoughts on that day's reading. People are openly discussing religion and the Bible. It's pretty amazing.
I've got to say, though, my favorite part is seeing what other people write in their journals. I love seeing the Instagram pictures and tweets. Sometimes, others pick up something I didn't necessarily notice.
This month, the study is Proverbs. Simply, you just read one proverb each day. I've enjoyed reading early in the morning and then can reflect on the proverb throughout the whole day. I didn't read much of the Bible growing up, so most verses are brand new to me.
Since participating in #SheReadsTruth, I've felt more positive. I think this is a good thing for me. It doesn't take long, just a few minutes to step back and read what God has written for us. How could that hurt? I encourage each and every one of you to join in, if you so please.
I'd love to hear what you all have to say!
