Time in the Word

Good morning!

We've been working feverishly to get all the orders out from the sale, and I think we should be all caught up today.  Thank you for letting us be a blessing to you, and for blessing us with your orders and sweet comments in return.  We appreciate you!!

One of the things I feel like I can't stress enough here at GraceWorks is the importance of we as women, wives and mothers being in God's Word on a regular basis, and reading it completely and prayerfully. I read a sweet blog post a week or two ago that was a beautiful reminder of why we need to be in the Word, and I asked the author if I could link to it here.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of reading plans available on the internet, but If you are looking for a reading plan that is laid out in a journal form, be sure to check out our Into His Presence Bible Reading Plan and Journal.  It is available as either a full-size download or as classic size printed pages.  It is undated -- so you can start today! And you will read through the entire Bible once each 365 days, reading each day a portion of the Old Testament and the New Testament, as well as a daily portion of Psalms and Proverbs.

I've always been encouraged later, when I read through my notes, to remember what God taught me through different passages, and how He worked in my life over the year as I delved into His Word.  It is a wonderful reminder when I am discouraged, or when I am faced with a difficult decision, to know that He is faithful!  

I remember when my daughters first began to read through the Bible and their comments about how interesting it was to see the complete picture.  That it was the story of Christ and redemption from beginning to end, and that it was more than just a series of disconnected stories and interesting sayings, and it truly was applicable to everyday life, whether you are a child, a student, a young wife, a mother of toddlers, a homemaker, a rocket scientist, or a great-grandmother.  I would encourage you to begin today to model this important spiritual discipline for your children and grandchildren!

Have a blessed weekend!


PS - Don't forget that our 16% Off sale ends on Sunday!
