50 Day Spiritual Adventure: Week 4

50 Day Spiritual Adventure: Week 4

Welcome to the fourth week of the Spiritual Adventure! My prayer is that you are enjoying your journey through the Minor Prophets. If you fall behind, please do not get discouraged! Keep at it; there will be some time to get caught up. Below you will find Scripture for the last four weeks. I will plan to simply build on the Scripture, therefore, the past weeks Scriptures will be available as well.

To the regular readers of my blog, as well as those here for the first time, I would like to welcome you to join me in a time of delving into God’s Word, specifically the Minor Prophets of the Old Testament. Over the course of nine weeks (starting September 1 and ending October 19) we will be reading one or two chapters each day. It is not as daunting as it sounds. Be encouraged as you get into God’s Word, even when the prophets had a difficult word to share, there was such care and love too, if you look deeply enough.

The Scripture I will be sharing is what my pastor (Trinity United Methodist Church--Albia, Iowa) created and distributed to the congregation. This is something he does each fall. It is a time to be renewed spiritually. It is a time get back into the Word after a busy summer.

For some, it may be the first time they have really gotten into the Word. Wherever we are in our walk with the Lord, more awaits us. If you have yet to surrender you heart to Lord, why not do it now? Check out my blog archives for posts on salvation and what it means to follow Jesus are available for reading.

Speaking for myself, I have learned and grown from these special times. As you begin to read these passages, please do not get discouraged! If you get behind, keep on going, there will be time to get caught up.  

My plan is to post the Scripture for the week late Saturday or early on Sunday morning of that week; therefore, for a short time each week will have two posts instead of the usual one.

May God Bless you richly as you read His Word!

  1. Hi Kim! Happy Sunday to you! It's so fun to see who is featured for each day. I didn't really know much about Amos, so I looked him up. What a courageous prophet! A simple shepherd turned prophet, speaking to the north of Judah. Yikes.

    If nothing else, just the inspiration of these men is enough to get me thinking. If he can do this with the grace of God, what can we do? God's presence is so amazingly powerful!
    Blessings to you,

    1. Hi Ceil! Happy Tuesday to you! I'm happy that you're enjoying the Scripture readings for this month. The prophets as a whole are so interesting--they delivered an unpopular message to their country and to others. Sadly, we're not any better in how we respond to prophets today.

      Yes, we can do so much with God's (Holy Spirit) empowerment. I know that at times I can do so much more than I am. Yet, I know that when I preach/teach it's God working through me.



  2. Okay, I'm behind already, but I won't feel discouraged. I'll just catch up with you as soon as I can.
    Love and blessings!

    1. Martha, I'm glad that you stopped by. It really is okay to be behind; not getting discouraged but staying the course is what is important. Take your time as you read through the Scriptures--there's a lot to consider. In fact, I ended up reading one day's passages again on the following day, realizing that I missed something. :)

      Love and blessings!
