Happy Friday, friends!
We’ve been so encouraged by your response to the book of Nehemiah over the past 17 days—the way you’ve engaged with God’s Word and the way you’ve wrestled with and received the truth within. After reading the final chapter yesterday, it’s likely you were left thinking something along the lines of Huh?!, or You guyssss. Or maybe it left you speechless—just a long, tired sigh. Even without the tidy ending and without the pretty bow, we know that those final verses of Nehemiah are not accidental. God inspired the text—His Word—this way.
Today’s #SheSharesTruth assignment is this:
Why does the book of Nehemiah end the way it does?
What does God want us to see here about Himself and the Church?
We want to hear what the Holy Spirit is teaching you about the not-so-tidy ending to this amazing story!

**Please share your heart, Sisters. Our desire is not for this to be a time of comparison or sizing up writing abilities or spiritual maturity. Eloquence and insight are lovely, but we know that is not the thing our God calls us to. So, let’s not call each other to that either! If you feel ill-equipped—GOOD! If you feel like you have so much to learn—GREAT. SO DO WE! Every single time we sit down to write. And if we don’t, are hearts are not in the right place. Let this be a safe place to learn and share and love each other WELL.
