50 Day Spiritual Adventure: Week 7

50 Day Spiritual Adventure: Week 7

Welcome to the seventh 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 six 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! How are you keeping up with the reading? Are you getting behind at all?
    It's great to read some of the passages that I am not familiar with, the wisdom of the bible is truly endless. We have such a great guide in our Words from the Lord!

    1. Hi Ceil! Yes, I'm keeping up with the reading; it helps that I've simply structured my time with the Lord to include each day's reading. What about you?

      It's good, I think, to read passages/books/chapters that we tend to ignore. You are correct, the wisdom of the Bible is truly endless. IF we heed the words in the Bible, our lives and the lives of those around us are impacted for the better. We can't go wrong, when we look to the Lord for guidance.
