This is the Gospel: Day 1

The Gospel Changes Everything

by

Today's Text: 1 Corinthians 1:18, 1 Corinthians 13:8-13, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, 1 Timothy 1:15-16

 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but it is God’s power to us who are being saved.

- 1 Corinthians 1:18 HCSB -

The Gospel changes everything.

I’ve said these words before. Perhaps you have, too.
I’ve also forgotten them countless times. Perhaps you have, too.

Maybe you’ve heard or read them and thought, Okay. But how?
Or even, No. Not the gospel I’ve been taught.

Whether you can remember sitting in church as a kid, little feet dangling from the pew, or you’ve not graced the doors of a church for weeks, years, or ever—do you know the Gospel today?

Do you know…

You were designed on purpose, with intention, love, and care.
You are broken—tragically broken—but the One who made you can also bind you up and make you whole.
You have hope—real hope for the next moment and season, for a lifetime and forever.

Do you know this healing and hope don’t depend on you but on the One who loves you? The work has already been done, the gift freely given, secured and kept for YOU.

The Gospel is the good news of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is an everlasting and all-encompassing hope. It is for you and for me, it is for real and it is for right now, it can change you and it will change you.

Pastor and teacher Tim Keller explains it this way: “We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.”

Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.

It is every bit that simple, yet it is unfathomably profound. It is so plain a child can see it clearly, yet so mysterious the most educated theologians will always have more to learn. But let’s not misunderstand: the mystery of the Gospel does nothing to negate its truth. Paul says in scripture that “now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known” (1 Cor. 13:12).

We are children looking through a fogged up window at the glory of new-fallen snow. We are wanderers lying in a field, staring up in darkness at a massive, star-filled sky. God is revealing Himself in everything, and whether or not we believe, the Truth remains true. We cannot fully understand it, but that does not make it less true.

Over the next two weeks, we will explore the mystery of the Gospel of Jesus Christ together. Believers and skeptics alike, we will grab hold of these words and give them a fresh, honest look.

Will you join us? Will you make circles with us on the cold, foggy glass and see what’s on the other side?

It’s the story of all stories. Let’s tell it to one another again.

  • Elizabeth

    Just started this. excited to return back to the Bible

  • Wandaline Joassin

    I’m new to this and this is awesome! I’m so madly in love with Jesus and the gospel but I have a hard time staying consistent in diving deeper with God and not allowing my day to be filled with so much distractions that I don’t spend that time with him. What are some of your tips on how you stay consistent?

  • Claire Koepp

    It is good to be reminded of the Gospel ❤️

  • This is my first plan on SheReadsTruth. I️ was struggling to stay engaged in my other Bible plans and a few great friends pointed me here. So thankful!

  • Thank you for this word… it gives me comfort. As I hold my first child who is four months old I can’t help but question the world that I bringing him into… if it’s all worth it for this child to have to experience this world that I know is not always friendly… I think my doubts are rooted in a separation from reading truths like these!

  • Erica Tennyson

    Oh this living water. I can’t get enough of this Good News!

  • Oh how I love Jesus… oh how he’s been too good to me. Hope everyone is having a good night

  • I’d be lying if I said this was new material for my brain. I hope it can move down into my heart. I hope that I don’t settle for just knowing the Gospel should change me and that I allow it to actually change me. I want to want it to change my life.

    • Cori

      I so understand.

    • Savannah

      Girl I feel this so much! Sometimes I read stuff and it doesn’t nothing for my soul and I feel so ashamed and bad. I pray every doubt I have goes away and the word penetrates deeper into my heart and I start understanding everything better!

    • Amanda H

      I identify with this exactly. I pray our hearts be good soul for the seeds to grow. For anything that hinders that to be exposed and removed in Jesus name. Our hope in Christ is what changes us

    • Megan

      It’s no coincidence that I just finished my November calendar board and that my bible verse for the month is this,
      “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

  • OK God is seriously cool because I have recently messed up royally and I have been feeling so ashamed and so unworthy, and God just puts this Bible study in my path. I have not done a SheReadsTruth Bible study in about a year and the day that I open up the app to do so He gives me this message. He is so rad!!!

    • Sara G

      I’m in the same boat! I just found this and I’m so excited to see what he does in my life!!

  • Cillavalerie

    Good to be reminded of these simple truths: we are designed on purpose, we are sinful, and we have Hope!

  • Since this semester started, I have progressively become more and more busy with everything but God. My life has become one of distraction and complacency. Loved ones in my life have noticed this shift and have gently prodded my silent, apathetic spirit. I decided I needed to make a change. I want to be on fire for God and to be a conqueror in Him and through Him. So as of yesterday, I deleted my social media apps and downloaded this devotional app. I’m very excited for this time of growth – praise God for being a Faithful God, one who grants underserved blessings and unconditional love.

    • Brianna

      That’s so awesome Teghan! There are so many there with you! We are using this app for a Girls Bible study on a college campus and last night 2 girls shared your sentiments. One expressed the business and needing to remember what is important and the other chose to replace social media on her phone with time in the Word! Be encouraged, sister, you are not alone!

  • I’m starting this plan because I just feel really dragged down and am doubting a lot about God right now and I want to be brought back closer to him and to understand him more

    • Holly

      I totally feel that Sarah. Today I came to the Lord empty and doubting and this is the plan he led me to. I’ll be praying for your journey Sarah, and I know that God has amazing plans for you, even though in the midst of the troubles of life it may not seem to be so.

    • Savannah

      I feel exactly the same. My mind takes over and I can’t help but doubt. I feel so guilty for doubting and I pray all the time that the spirit of doubt flees and I can grow a deeper relationship with God. I’ll pray for you too girl. Sometimes the doubt it so strong that it consumes my entire soul and I feel like I’m drowning and I hate that bc I want a deep vulnerable relationship with God!!

  • Thank you Yahweh

  • Can’t wait to start this plan!

  • No matter what life throws our way God will always be there to lift us up. His love is truly overwhelming

  • In need of some new Morning devos and saw this one! Sometimes it’s good to go back to the basics when you don’t know where to go :) excited to read!

  • Excited to join and read this new plan! It is great to start the day being reminded of God’s love and care for me!

  • Looking forward to participating in this plan. Day one starting with a beautiful reminder that we are loved!

  • It’s so easy to forget how much He really loves us. This reminds me. ❤️❤️

  • Im so excited to start this plan! Cant wait!

  • LOVED IT @jayme

  • God is truly so so good. So exited to do this plan!

  • Excited to do this study again and be reminded of these truths that I don’t focus on enough!

  • Looking forward to reconnecting with God through the studies on this wonderful app. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. ❤️

  • Capilano girls- I’m so excited to read this with you! Going to be so good!!

  • ❤️

  • Looking forward to reconnecting through this study. I am also thankful for those that share here. Where ever He is, is the real world, it can be very hard to balance it all in the worldly day to dayness. Prayers of peace and strength for all.

  • Love that I can go through this and be reminded every morning how unbelievably loves I am just because.

  • I’ve grown up in the church and have loved and believed the truth of the Gospel for nearly 20 years. I even spend months and months of my life overseers sharing it with others. But it can be hard to “preach the Gospel to myself”. As I’m home for a short time from the mission field, I am excited to go through this study and be reminded of the beautiful truth of the Gospel that really does change everything.

  • Great remainder of how much freedom we have in Jesus.

  • Kelsey Erickson

    This was a good reminder this morning. I have been struggling lately with friendships and relationships and interfering with my faith. This was exactly what I needed to hear. I am excited to dive into this study!

  • Please Pray for me. I am a Christian, but have been having a hard time getting into God’s word lately.

    • She Reads Truth

      Praying, Masha! Asking the Lord to grow your desire for His Word and to bring you joy through encountering Him there.

      – Stormye

    • Rachel_Ann

      Masha, I hope you’re continuing to dive deep into God’s word. I just started this study today and saw your comment. I feel for you because I feel that same struggle with you! But God is better than any distraction we could encounter in this life. He is fuller, wiser, more loving and more satisfying. Praying that we increase in love for our redeemer as we study His living word :)

  • Samantha Guerrier

    I’m happy I found this study, I hope it brings me closer to God because with all the distractions the world can provide, sometimes it gets difficult to stay intune.

  • I’m so excited to start this plan and study about God’s love and salvation!

  • Samantha Hearn

    Today, one of my closest friends let me know her husband has denounced his faith, stating he possibly never believed, even while leading our church’s worship team for the past years and praying with their two small kids every night. I started this plan tonight so grateful for the reminder of the mysterious gift I’ve been given and so sad that some will reject or never know the same grace.

    • She Reads Truth

      Oh goodness, what a heavy thing to be processing. So grateful that you shared this so that we can be praying for your friend and her family.

      – Stormye

  • Sydney Greer

    Recently, my church lost a very involved member in a police accident (he was the police- peacemaker). I’m looking forward to this study to just ground myself in the hope that God is holding me through the hurt.

  • Sarah Elliott

    I am a teenager in a lost world..and it is very hard to find friends that support my beliefs and morals. I have been struggling recently because I have felt very distant from God and I just need prayer for my relationship with God to get stronger and closer. I am a Christian and I was saved when I was nine and I’m just struggling.

    • Rachel

      Hey Sarah, I’m also a teenager. I can definitely relate to that struggle. My story is a lot like yours. I’ve grown up in church, but I never quite felt close to God. It is very hard, especially in a lost world. Things changed for me when I realized that God is greater than my doubts. It’s okay to have doubts and questions. As for the friends part, I definitely had trouble with that too. If you can, try to find a youth group you can go too, even if it’s at a different church. I found some of my best friends there. Good luck, you’ll be in my prayers:)

    • She Reads Truth

      Praying for you, Sarah! Asking the Lord to bring strong believers into your life to help you through this time of struggle. So grateful for you!

      – Stormye

    • Whitney

      As a teenager I know exactly what you mean. But when I look around at how blessed my life is because of God I know there is no other way I would want to live.

      I have a friend who lost her way and turned to the world about a year ago and since then her life has been a wreck, she’s lost so much and she’s so broken. Those are here own words.. My point is even when feeling distant from God just keep praying and pushing through because the world has nothing to offer you.

      And I completely agree about finding a youth group! My church has an amazing youth group, we have church planned events every Friday night and because of that we’ve all gotten so close and try our best to hang out and be with one another as much as possible. Having a youth group to just hang out and have fun with but also to pray with and for you and be there when you’re struggling will truly help you get closer to God!

  • Chelsea Joy

    I’ve found that once we recognize our original punishment for sin – torture in hell, death, separation from God…. once we recognize what we deserve and THEN add Jesus into the picture, it changes everythinggggggg. to see what he actually saved us from. I think I tend to forget the depth and severity of my sin. but wowwww. he’s so good. thank you thank you thank you

  • God loves us the Bible says this. He will always love us unconditionally no matter our sins. Thank you for helping me understand the gospel better!!

  • Mary Claire Howard

    I really needed this. Thank you!

  • Kelly sartor

    So happy to have found this study. I bought the SRT bible and love it! I am hoping and praying for God to give me clarity on how to help my son. He is a Freshmen in high school and has been really sick. He is finally feeling better and now we need to get him back in school. He doesn’t really want to go and has dyslexia so I need the Lord to guide me which school or homeschool to put him in!

    • She Reads Truth

      Welcome, Kelly! We are so glad to have you reading with us.

      – Stormye

    • Candy Lara

      Hello have you looked into online public school? I’m in ga and we have k12 which is a public funded online school? Or maybe you could contact your district super intendant, they would be able to give you better information about your options. Hope it helps in some way God bless

  • Kaylenn Hunt

    As a teenager in today’s world, there are so many distractions that cause me to lose track of where I am with God. My friends and I are all believers, but for some reason at this point in life, I feel as if I’m losing a good foundation with Christ. I’m hoping and praying that this will help me find my way back to the heart of worship.

    • Brianna

      As a woman in her late twenties I am here to tell you, it happens. Keep the prayer going and reach out to your friends, parents or someone you trust. I bet you will be surprised that your friends are going through similar things!

    • Amy Miller

      Praying for you Kaylenn! Praying for your foundation to be solely and firmly in Christ! What a firm foundation He is!! And I applaud you for taking the steps to make your faith your own and seeking to know Him more! Press on sister!!

  • I’m starting this today, I feel like I’ve fallen so far away from Him that I can’t even see Him. But I know in my soul He is there reaching out to draw me close to Him again. I just need to find my way back and I’m glad to have this app and study to help be the light to guide me home.

  • Just started this study and I’m hoping to be able to understand Jesus better

    • She Reads Truth

      Welcome, Sara! Glad to have you studying with us!

      – Stormye

  • Just started this study tonight and am hoping for a better understanding. I believe in Jesus and am always praying for a woman to walk this journey with me to help me to understand the Bible more and to help my relationship with Christ grow. My prayer has not been answered yet so I’m trying to sort it all out on my own, it’s tough! But I can’t wait to keep learning and growing.

  • I’m thankful that I found out about she Reads Truth because I’ve needed something to help me dive deeper into the Bible and my relationship with Jesus.

  • Alejandra

    This is great! Thank you! God’s word is always refreshing!

  • Starting today to revive my heart!

  • My prayer is that this study will help in my witness. That it will refresh a tired spirit and above all that God will use this study for me to bring honor and glory to His eternal Kingdom.

  • Megan Hoffman

    I’m reading this because I’ve forgotten the truth about who Jesus is and who I am because of who Jesus is. I’m a storyteller myself, but sometimes I need to be reminded of the most important story of all. Excited to start today!

    • She Reads Truth

      Glad to have you, Megan! Praying that the Lord reminds you of all of these things and makes them clear through His Word.

      – Stormye

  • Maryann Bass

    I just started this reading today. I am hopeful and excited to take another step deeper into the understanding of the truth.

    • She Reads Truth

      Welcome, Maryann! We are so grateful for you and glad to have you reading the Word of God with us!

      – Stormye

  • I’m reading this devotional for a second time. I remember falling in love with Jesus all over again and am wanting that again. This devotional touched my heart. Praying for a renewed spirit.

  • Ellie Huegli

    This is great! I am using this to help my friend who is completely uninterested in christianity. I plan on refreshing my brain for whenever she asks questions. I can’t wait! It would be wonderful if you see this comment if you could pray for her. :)

    • Tiffany

      Just prayed for the both of you! I prayed for open ears, mind, and heart for your friend and that the Lord would speak truth through you. Keep up the good work in pursuing her heart! I will continue to pray for y’all!

    • Mary H.

      Please update on how your witnessing is going! Prayers for both of you.

  • I’m really looking forward to getting into this devotional! It’ll be a great help when I go on mission trips!

  • Marlo Krumbhaar

    I love this one it gives me a big change of heart

  • so great to feel this burden lifted off of my shoulders.. because i know i have this wonderful gospel that saves me!

  • I’m so far removed in my walk with God that I cannot begin to see a path. Starting over. Dealing with grief and a lack of purpose. Missing the light that I once could see.

    • Sydney Smith

      I am in the same boat. I feel so far gone, like I can never come back… But I know that’s just what the devil wants me to say. I WILL get right, and I will learn more about Gods endless and unconditional love for me, and you will too! Praying for you! Xoxo

    • AJ

      I too feel so removed from my walk with God. I see what the enemy has done to my family and to me and instead of going to God, I have gone through self-pity, feeling worthless, feeling like a failure,
      etc. I gave it to Satan’s when I knew better. Now I refuse to let him stop me from getting back into God and His Word. I have read most of the Bible before but never really studied it. I don’t care if it’s one verse a day, I need The Word because I need to know Jesus. I need to know Him to worship Him the way He deserves. I need to know Him to teach others about Him. I am so thankful for She Reads Truth as well as a few other sites that I follow sometimes. I don’t have a job anymore due to medical problems and I have 3 children that I worked for all of their lives. It has been hard and I wanted to know from God why me? But, I have learned I have more friends and family that love me. I worked so much I know how to slow down now. I found God again through all of this and that is the best thing that came out of what I have gone through. So you all are in my prayers as well and I am thankful to have real people with real feelings to learn and grow with Spiritually.

    • Taylor Grace

      What’s so amazing about our Father is that he is always seeking us. Even after Adam and Eve disobeyed and sinned, God called out for them and he calls for us even now. Most people feel that when we go a stray that we are moving away from him and that there is a great distance we have to go to get back to Him, but the truth is He is right behind you. All you need to do is turn around and embrace Him. Give him everything including your faith and trust.

  • I’m doing this plan with a friend of mine. After college I lost that sense of community, had a lot of personal hardships, and lost a bit of that passion for God that I previously had. My friend recommended that we do this study to move past my anger and hurt in order to fall in love with Jesus again. For he has always loved me, especially at my worst…

  • Thank you Jesus!

  • Mariah Chavers

    Ready to dig deeper into my word

  • Caitlyn Jarrell

    My desire for the word has been extremely lacking, so I know I’ve been needing to get into a daily devotional. I’m so glad I’ve found She Reads Truth, especially because that’s all I heard about in Bible School. I’m excited to jump in and experience God all over again.

  • God placed this study in my life at just the right time. Struggling with not having a sense of who I am, insecurity, not knowing what He wants me to be doing to serve Him, etc. but I believe that with this plan I can go back to the beginning of His story and remember that I am a daughter of the One True King! Please pray for God to use me through mission work

  • Michelle Castro

    I’m very interested to see what Jesus Christ has in store for me over the next few weeks,months and years!!

  • I’m excited to dig deeper with this study. I’ve been praying for my heart to change and this is what He answered with.

  • Going through for the 2 time. I need this to click. I feel very distant and like I have totally lost sight of the miracle of the cross. Excited to see what God teaches me.

  • Krista371

    I just began this study and I am anxious to dig deeper! I struggle with insecurity and often feel lost, even though I know in my heart Jesus has me in the palm of his hand. I am hopeful that each day I can feel His love more and more. Thanks for these free studies, I hope to be able to purchase some later on down the line.

  • Michaela

    Have been struggling to want to read scripture recently, as doubt had come and settled. But in fighting it, the feelings come back, trust and desire too. EXCITED TO START THIS STUDY!

    • Liz Rice

      So proud of you for fighting it! Sometimes we just have to trust and read anyways even when we don’t want to. I have had to learn this as well.

  • Jasmine

    Just started today, I’m hoping I can draw more closer to God. Thank you for the devotional!

  • I actually never really realized that I have not Ben really listening to God!! I am thankful for this devotion!!

  • Sophie Katherine

    Hello everyone! I am starting this today and re-dedicating my life for Christ after living too many years as someone that was a Christian, but didn’t live the Christian lifestyle. Are there any other teen girls here that would want to be friends? I desperately need more Christians in my life that can be a positive influence and hold me accountable.

  • Victoria

    I’m starting this plan tonight and I am really hoping that it will help me grow in Christ. I have always had a strong faith but lately my life is just getting the better of me and I don’t know how to handle it. I just keep turning to God and praying that he can help me.

  • I’m starting this as my first plan today. praying I can stick with it. I want even just thirty minutes a day devoted to God, I know my day will go much better if I can.

  • Roni Gunther

    i started college a little over a month ago, and i haven’t fallen out of my relationship with Him, but i definitely haven’t been pursuing Him like i had been. things are starting to get a little challenging and that scares me. i’m so excited to start doing this devo and keep my eyes fixed on His glory.

    • Brook

      Hey Roni! I work with a campus ministry, and was involved in one in college that was life changing. Have you looked for one at your college?

  • Brittany Gresham

    Came across She Reads Truth a couple days ago and just downloaded the app. The message of the gospel seemed like a wonderful starting place to engage in the app…excited about growing in my relationship with Jesus Christ.

  • Madison Elizabeth

    I just downloaded this devotion in hopes I can grow a better relationship with Christ. This month is the hardest for me because my boyfriend leaves for the marines in 20 days… this is when I need God the most and I hope he guides me while I go through this journey.

  • Kelsey Tichenor

    Yes, I so often go through life without remembering to awe at the gospel and see life/myself through gospel lenses. Excited about this study!

  • I am so ready to get in to this reading! I need to really get into the gospel.

  • Christa

    I am looking forward to reading, and knowing more about the gospel than ever! Even though we think we get it right sometimes the “world” dims our light! I’m grateful for the opportunity to be reminded of how much we are loved! JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY!

  • Looking forward to diving into this study. I need to be reminded of the power of the gospel and of Jesus death and resurrection.

  • Lauren Raybon

    Just downloaded this app and I’m excited to start this study!

  • Amanda S

    As someone who is new to finding their faith, the title “The Gospel Changes Everything” is exciting to me. I’m not sure what to expect but I am ready for change in my life. I am ready to build my relationship with God and I feel like this is the best decision I have ever made.

    • Laurie Martin

      Welcome to the Christian family! You are adopted in just like the rest of us. :-)

  • Caitlyn Mitchell

    I’m going to love this! This app is amazing, I wish I would have found it sooner!!!!

  • Kat Marquez

    Just what I needed. I’ve been struggling these past months with my faithfulness and have been feeling numb. Just before reading this, I cried out to God to help me; to pull me back and then this scripture is what I read. It’s amazing how God chooses to speak to us sometimes: at the perfect moment.

  • really looking forward to this study! my brother, who doubles as a bible scholar, told me about this app! loving it so far

  • Whitney

    I’m glad to know there are a few people who just started this one like me! My friend told me about this app and I am so glad she did. And I’m so happy about this comments section where maybe we can further discuss what we are reading and further learning

  • Mathilde

    I’m really excited about this app!!
    Every once in a while, I kind of need the assurance that Jesus loves me because of His grace, not because of what I have or haven’t done :)

  • Emma Jones

    This Is good food for the weak and heavy laden. I needed this. “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so…”

  • Laura Grant

    This was just what I needed to hear today. I have a very heavy heart for someone near and dear to my heart and I so badly want her to see Jesus for who He is and what He did.

  • Madison Konet

    I just downloaded this app and am really excited to learn more and rediscover!!

  • Maggy James

    I am so excited for this! Loved this devotional!!!

  • These words are so uplifting and convicting. Looking forward to this study!

  • Kathryn Benson

    I’m a believer but have forgotten and neglected my relationship with God for so long. I am looking forward to continuing this study and to nourishing my relationship with my Father!!

  • I’m walking with you too!! I’m hoping to feel the love and bring Christ back into my life and find real truth!

  • I haven’t been to church in several years. I love SRT and several other sites like Love God Greatly & Proverbs 31.
    Right now I’m having serious dental work done and so I’ve decided that since I have a son now, we will be looking for a church family.

  • Anna McGuire

    When I really stop to think… The Gospel changes everything; it changed me… And it’s continuing to change me.

  • Carolina

    That was such a good and reassuring devotion!

  • I needed to read that. I haven’t been to church in over a year and just started to dive back into scripture and read His truths and seek forgiveness. I am excited about this journey and having this accountability!

  • Sara Vineyard

    Such an absolutely wonderful environment! Can’t wait to dive into God’s word with such great accountability partners! :)

  • Jasmine Christensen

    Such a good start! Loving seeing all the encouragement from other women! May God bless you and keep you xx

  • Annalise

    Love this app! Excited to start doing daily devotionals on here :)

  • Rachel Coget

    I’m really digging this app, this is my first devo on here but I’m excited to get start!

  • Amen! So pumped to dive into the gospel and to reclaim it with fresh eyes!

  • I’m excited about this. I grew up in church and still go to this day, but it hasn’t been until late that I’ve need desperate to go into my bible and really dig into His word. I have so many questions and I’m longing to grow my relationship with Christ, so why not start with the gospel right?

  • Emily Farrell

    Feeling ready to really know God, more than just what I’ve grown up learning.

  • TSBoynton

    Day 1 This is the Gospel

    What does this teach me about God?

    That He is a Lover and a Pursuer, a Forgiver and a Savior. He called my name and laid down His life for  mine. He suffered and died to make me His. He paid my blood debt with His own blood. And He rose again as the scriptures prophesied and as He promised. So now I am His forever and He is my forever King who reigns my life in love. He is patient and kind with me. His goodness toward me comes from who He is and that is His glory that will fill the whole earth! His love toward me and His saving power at work in my life is my testimony to other broken and messed up people who wonder if God could love them. He could and He does! This is the good news!

    What does this teach me about man?

    That I am sinful and have no power to save myself. I need saving. I need a Savior. I need Jesus who came to show me the Father and be my only way to Him. My sin is serious and deadly. It had to be paid for in blood. It’s price is a life. Jesus paid that price to bring me to God.

    How will i respond?

    Lord Jesus, I am overwhelmed with Your love for me which never fails, Your sacrifice which fully paid my debt and freed me from my enslavement to my own sinful nature, Satan and death. I am wholly Yours and this day I recommit all that I am and have to you, starting with my …
    HEART: I will begin each day worshipping and praising and thanking You. By this will you be  glorified and my heart will be trained and strengthened in treasuring You. I will love You with all my heart!
    SOUL: I will submit my dreams and desires , my fears and my drives to You which were once under bondage to sin. Hebrews 2:14-15 says: “Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.” I am freed from sin and fear to follow you, so I will not give in to anything that will lead me away from You but will pursue You with holy disciplines.
    MIND: I will fill my mind with Your Word and I will believe what You say. My faith, my trust in You pleases You so I gladly offer it and give myself to cultivate it to produce a pleasing and abundant harvest. That Faith comes as a gift from Jesus and it begins by knowing what You say and taking You at Your Word. You define reality. What You declare is truth regardless what my feelings, my circumstances and others tell me.
    STRENGTH: I will follow and obey you because You are trustworthy and because I belong to You. I was made by You and saved by You to walk with You in love. Today I pledge my strength to You, all my strength which comes from The resurrected Christ living in me.

    How Will I Pray?

    Lord, You are my life and my all! My heart! You have it! My soul! I gladly give it! My Mind! I yield it! My strength! It’s Yours. Thank You for loving me when I was damaged goods (self inflicted), for pursuing me when I ran from You, for suffering and dying to rescue me and set me free, for calling me to follow you in this resurrection kingdom “with-God” life!

    What does the Gospel mean to me? It means hope and brings about joy. Today was supposed to be my wedding day. The Gospel reminds me that in the end there is joy, and if joy is not achieved, it is not the end. It’s not the end and I am trying to cling to God’s hope.

    • TSBoynton

      May the Father embrace you as His beloved daughter, the Son walk beside you and the Holy Spirit comfort you. May you find your joy in His presence.

  • I’m so excited to dig back into the Gospel!

  • I’m more of a young woman (14 years old) but I’m so glad I found this app… I don’t like youth group cause I keep more to myself .. so this is perfect I love when it said that we were created on purpose.. with love and care this is what I need right now and I can not wait to continue this journey ❤️

    • JJ

      Mariam….
      I am just starting this study but have been using this app for a good while. As a woman in the middle of life and a worker with the youth at my church (also the mother of a 15 and 11 year old) I would encourage you to give youth group another chance. God didn’t call us to travel our journeys alone. Check out Hebrews 10:23-25. Jesus loves the Church and He created it so that we could be stronger together than we ever could be separately. I will pray for you!

  • Maddie Mayer

    this is so beyond inspiring to me. at first I thought that I completely understood everything about the gospel, but now, I don’t think I know very much at all. I decided to start this with a friend and I am beyond happy that I did. I am so grateful that she told me about this app, and that I stumbled upon this plan, because I think that this is exactly what I need in my life right now. a little bit of encouragement from others and the Word.

  • Stressed out mom

    This year has been really difficult. My son suffered 2 concussions. My marriage isn’t doing all that great. We have ALOT of financial worries and stress. I got a job only to discover it’s a short term situation. We are dealing with an infestation of fleas in our home and I’m the only one getting bitten. I’m sounding like a complainer but I’m really struggling to see that God is good. That he has good for me for us. For my family. I’m exhausted in every way and covered in flea bites or bed bug bites. I don’t know. Stress is at an all time high and the Good news isn’t feeling good. I feel terrible for saying this. For typing it. For thinking it. I’ve heard all my life that God is good. Where is he?

    • Grace

      Read the comments above. Maybe God will use your sisters to encourage you.

    • Lily B.

      I read your post and I completely understand your stress, but you have to remember everything that happens is part of Gods big plan for you and it will all be alright. If you have ever seen the movie “The War Room” try creating a war room and see what happens. Just remember God will always love you.

    • Geraldine Bernadette

      that is what im feeling right now in my family.in the same kind of that situasion too.but, Im tryingg to believe and hey,look from the other side you’re still alive,health,there is still a thing that can make u smile or happy. but yeaa, i have to admit that as human,sometimes I ask Him why and why. i believe that,God give us all the problems that we face, to take us to the next level of our faith. so lets walk together,you’re not alone.Lord knows,and He always beside you,wherever you are.just be patient. God bless you :)

  • God reveals himself in so many things around us! I just find that so beautiful!!

  • SamiWirth

    Someone told me once that, until you know the true gospel, like know it in your mind body in soul, worship-prayer-praise will feel like you hit a ceiling and can go no further into a depth the Lord wants to take you. The gospel changes everything, truly, you will feel a freeness you have never experienced.

    I’ve been challenged at my church to pray for 7 lost souls, 7 days a week, for 7 weeks–and I’m thinking if I am meant to pray for the lost, love & serve them, and teach them the gospel–then I need to know it and walk in the freedom of it too.

    • Tabitha

      That’s such a good point. We should study and search for more. To know everything about what it is we claim to own. Salvation! We should know the gospel as Christians. ☺️

  • Grace Samp

    ❤️

  • Sav Shell

    the mystery of the gospel does nothing to negate it’s truth…. praise Jesus that His awe inspiring love is so so true and real and relevant to my life.

  • I have “known” Jesus all my life.I know all the facts. I do the right things and read my Bible and devotionals. But, I am longing for something more in my relationship with God. I want to feel God. And not just at church or chapel, but all the time. Please pray for me. Pray that God will awaken my heart and revive me for Him:)
    -thanks

    • Kristina Simon

      stay encouraged my love! following the Lord is one of the best decisions anyone can ever make:)

      I will pray that the Lord takes you deeper with Him than your feet could ever wander!

      I am in the exact same boat as you. I know the Gospel, but I want to feel the Gospel. I want to experience Jesus and feel His love.

    • Megan

      I’m afraid I’m in the same place, you’re definitely in my prayers

    • Tiffanie

      I feel the same way. I want to know him and not just facts about him.

    • Grace

      Been this way for years. I know what you mean

  • Nicole McCoskrie

    Reading through this, it just hit me. I thought to myself “MAN i wish everyone knew the Jesus I know”. The freedom that comes from knowing Jesus completely blows my mind, so much so that I have no words to explain it. We really do have a God-shaped whole in our heart.

    I am absolutely in love with the quote from Tim Keller. To know that we are winning more than ever but at the same time can be loved more than ever is amazing. I think it is so true that the gospel will change you and I can’t wait for it to move my life .

  • Very excited to start this devotional! God is Love.

  • Lydia Megdal

    Wow this truth is the most important thing I could ever hear and know, yet so often I forget it in the midst of my everyday life. Lord thank you for reminding me today of the your sacrifice for me? You laying down your life for your sheep, and how that changes EVERYTHING. everything about my life, everything about how I treat and love people. Jesus, renew my mind, help me to be becoming more like you.

  • Nicky Houseman

    So excited to start this plan. I’ve been falling away and searching for answers in all the wrong places. I’m ready to come back to the truth.

  • I’ve been falling away from the truths of the gospel, and I’m trying to get back:) really praising God for His redeeming love today!

  • Isabella

    Thank you for this devotion I’m excited to begin this plan! I’ve been through a lot recently and I think reconnecting my relationship with God is very important and can help tremendously

    • Amber peterson

      I too believe that a deeper relationship with God can heal so much. no matter what you went through god is right here

  • It says that love is greater than faith and hope. I know how strong faith is, so wow, love must be more than anything.

    • Haley Flowe

      I have never really thought of it that way, that’s a really good point! Thanks for bringing that up

  • Growing up in church given me the knowledge of mind but not knowledge of heart. What is this good news? What does it mean to have salvation? Can’t wait to learn more about it!

  • It’s amazing how, like Paul says about the mirror, we are fully know by God, but we only know a small portion about Him. It’s this mystery that makes me want to pursue Him more and unveil My heart. The bible even says how we can never fully grasp how great His love is!
    Ephesians 3:19- “May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”
    ‭‭

  • Liz Crimmins

    Getting back into the word!

  • A few days ago I was so lost; struggling because I knew the truth of the Gospel, but I was letting the lack of understanding and the mystery overpower the words of Jesus. And then here I am, starting a new study in hopes that find something, some answer, and the Lord speaks exactly to my question. This entire day’s study has been overflowing with truths I haven’t heard because I have been so consumed with the lies this world throws in your face. I am so thankful for She Reads Truth & their desire to push out the worlds lies with the Gospel’s power.

    • Jocabeth

      I’ve felt the same way for some time now. I’m not sure what answer I will find in this study, but I’m excited to begin and regain strength in my faith. The enemy is hard at work and I’ve seen it in my own life and I was in a dark place due to this questioning. The lord has always been there for me though, and it’s been a huge help to have this app. I pray the best for you and know your not alone in this search, as I am encouraged by your own perseverance for truth. Many blessings!

  • super excited to start this new study!

  • Chelsea Thurlow

    the gospel can seam foolish to the world because Jesus was killed, and yet he rose again. it may sound foolish because living after Christ means living not for the comfort of the world but in the love of God. this is a sacrifice, yet one that is worth the whole world.

  • I’m excited to start a new journey

  • Maybe I need the reminder more than the people in Corinth did in 1Corninthians

  • Shaun Maree

    I’m excited to see what is next!

  • Looks like this will be a great two week intellectual journey

  • I want the assurance that im worth something to God, I feel so useless in mans and in my own eyes

    • MeredithCorinne

      Remember that God sent a part of himself (literally) in the form of his perfect son Jesus Christ to die a traitors death for you my dear. You are so worth it, forget men’s eyes. The creator of the entire universe planned every atom in your being before time had a sequence. If you are worth it to Him, what are the opinions of men in comparison? It’s hard to tell yourself every day to find affirmation in Christ and not in the opinions of others around you, whose voices and faces you see, they’re tangible. But it’s so worth trying. We all struggle with our self image and wondering if we make the cut or whether or not Gods gift of salvation was meant for us; but if you believe anything- believe His promises my dear and find comfort in His word ❤️

  • Designed on purpose…every day…I ask myself am I worth it. Lets see.

  • Beth Bruner

    I can’t wait to keep reading this!

  • I am very excited to start this devotion. The Gospel is a mystery and there is so much to unpack.. I could read it 100 times and still get shivers from Jesus’ teachings and how they apply to my heart. I’m praying that you ladies doing this devotional series will cling to God’s words and that you will allow Him to transform your hearts so that we may live out the Gospel in our day to day lives.

  • I’m excited for this devotional and I can’t wait to learn more and engage in the gospel. While also getting a renewed and refreshed outlook on the gospel and Jesus.

  • Kathryn Tannehill

    This devotional is amazing!! I love the scriptures! I feel confident that I can leave home today!!!todayIfeeconfident to go

  • I loved this devotional and what stuck out to me was “God in his wisdom took delight in using what the world considered stupid — preaching, of all things! — to bring those who trust him into
    The way of salvation. This gives me understanding of why many do not want to attend church or do not trust in the establishment of churches. I have had times of doubt myself. The message also gave me 3 directives that I want to strive for; trust in God, have hope , and love extravagantly. Thanks for sharing what He has given to you. LAH

  • 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. I always often disregard the first two words in this statement (because the greatest of these is love) but faith and hope are so important as well. It’s important to remember our faith a all time and keep the shiney view of hope in front of us. Life gets rough but we have our faith and hope to rest on and our love to see us through. .

  • Bethany Luke

    Thank you so much for setting this devotional up, me and my friends are now able to keep up with our devotions together!

  • Mary Beth

    I can clearly remember a time of my life when I was rejecting aspects of the gospel…I didn’t want to believe that I was more marred than I ever could have imagined. Yet, the weight of trying to be good and even transgressing my own standards of goodness, I couldn’t deny, I am broken. Jesus came to my rescue, swooped in, caught me. He tenderly helped me to see, it is for that very reason He came. For me. To free me, to heal, for me to no longer live trying–but to simply receive the perfect work He had done in my place! ❤️ What a beautiful Savior. “My name is graven on His hands, my name is written on His heart.”–Before the Throne of God Above

  • I cannot wait to dive deeper into the gospel with fresh eyes! Sarah, I love your illustration of the glow stick:
    “much like a glow stick, you have to bend and break before your true beauty shines and you reach your purpose”
    What an awesome way to look at our lives with Christ!!

  • Sarah McGrady

    “You are broken—tragically broken—but the One who made you can also bind you up and make you whole.”

    my teacher taught us this. and she told us “much like a glow stick, you have to bend and break before your true beauty shines and you reach your purpose”

  • cristy Rhodes

    The Gospel was the sermon that our pastor delivered yesterday. feeling inspired.

  • Love the Tim Keller quote. What sermon (or book) is it from?

  • Did anyone else notice that her middle name is Bible?

  • Broken more that I could imagine…loved more than I could hope. Thank you, Jesus, for this reminder.

  • This is exactly what I needed to enrich my biblical knowledge and journey in my life. Thank you.

  • Starting the new year reading the Gospel , and God be within in me and through my family . This is a great that you are sharing this with us .

  • Jennifer

    We are all more broken than we know, but we have more forgiveness and patience from Jesus than we can ever fathom. That is great encouragement! #shereadstruth

  • What great illustrations. I have grown up knowing the Gospel but thought what better way to start 2016 then knowing the gospel afresh as we start the new year. Thanks so much!

    • Tessa Marie

      I’m starting this for the New Year as well, Stacey. I agree — what a great way to begin, with new eyes revisiting the Truth passed down through the ages.

    • BlessedandFavored

      I also thought that renewing my spirit in the Gospel for the new year was A welcomed truth of love.

  • Andrea Michelle

    This is beautiful, knowing that His mercy, Grace, and love are endless.

  • MacyCaroline

    God does so many amazing things we don’t even notice.

  • Olivia Skirvin

    God is revealing Himself in everything, and whether or not we believe, the Truth remains true. We cannot fully understand it, but that does not make it less true.

  • When things are getting a bit overwhelming, we always seems to forget to call on Him first. He loves us and everything that unsettles us matters to Him. We are loved. It will be fine. :)

  • God is good

  • Miranda Rappley

    I can definitely attest to forgetting just how crucial the Gospel is to our lives. I take it for granted.

  • Karissa Rodriguez

    I try not to but at times I forget what He did for me, that He loves me and that I am His but I’m excited to read this and remember all of those things.

  • I forget constantly what God has done and is doing for me daily, indeed every moment of the day.

  • Karalynn

    I let myself forget how much God loves me, and I got caught up in trying to not feel alone. But God is always with me and will always be with me and love me, and has forever loved me. I can’t wait to go deeper and grow in my faith, I really needed to turn back to God.

    I am excited to walk through this study with you, God! Please open my eyes and heart to your words and message!

  • Kristine

    I’m very excited to be starting this study. 1 Timothy 1:15-16 really spoke to me this morning. It is a very basic, yet monumental piece of scripture that seems to sum up the gospel and all that we believe very, very well.

  • I’ve just started this devotion and I’m already so moved. I’m just overwhelmed by how good our Lord is.

  • This has helped me to understand that I am loved, we all have sinned and fell short. We’re human and have imperfections. I myself I have let the devil come into my life a wreck havoc on family. But not anymore the God I serve is there for me. I will become the woman God has destined for me. He loves me unconditionally

  • Love this – “Pastor and teacher Tim Keller explains it this way: “We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.” That was beautiful! I love this devotional so much. It’s help me come closer to God in this hectic world.

  • I’m glad I chose this study! I can’t wait to see what’s to come in the future.

  • Tonight I needed to hear and be reminded of the love of Jesus. I was in an emotionally abusive marriage for 15 years that made me doubt myself. Since my divorce I’ve tried to build my self esteem with the wrong things, desperately seeking love and approval. I have been reminded that God is the only one that can heal me and that His love is constant.

    • Stacy

      Going through this myself. So glad you posted this. I needed to hear this and to be reminded of his love. I don’t need love and approval from anyone else but him.

  • God thank you for this amazing opportunity!

  • Really needed to hear this! Can’t wait for what’s to come in the days ahead

  • I’m excited to start this study

  • HiddenTreasures

    I think it is safe to say that once we confess, with our mouths and believe in our hearts, and get baptized that we forget to go back and read what the gospel is. It is imperative that we remind ourselves of how much we are loved by God and how Jesus Christ gave himself so that we could be redeemed back to the Father. Life can throw some hard curve balls and if we are not rooted in the word we will easily start to doubt. This series is going to be great.

  • Daria Bernard

    Seems like a good series

  • Ashley Lynn

    I was raised in a decently religious family, my father and I went to church as often as we could. But no matter if I was in church or not my dad would find ways to remind me how blessed I truly was. Growing up I had friends, more like sisters, whose families were much more religious. Daughters of pastors and speakers, people who stood strong in their faith. I remember the feeling of love I experienced being around them. The awe I felt watching the work of god shine through them, and it inspired me. To the point where I knew I wanted a relationship like that with the Lord but I didn’t know how to go about it. I knew I loved Him, I knew he loved me but I didn’t know how to go about forming a true bond. Now being a college student in a large city I feel like I’ve lost my way. Recently I find myself just trying to talk to God to simply just share my life, all the success and failure, heartache and hope, everything with Him to just feel close to that faith again. Finding this outlet to read & learn and express myself is relieving. To grow in myself and grow with you, I am hopeful. Thank you for being a part of my journey to where I need to be with the Lord.

    • Claudia

      I will be starting college next year and that is a big fear of mine; being disconnected from God.

    • Madeline Isa

      This is beautiful. I’m encouraged you’re choosing truth in the midst of an atmosphere that seems self sufficient and self sustaining. We all need Him, His grace, and His word!

      A fellow college student,
      Madeline Isa

  • I was raised in the church, Baptism, Sunday school every week, confirmation…but my faith was shaken when my mom passed unexpectedly when I was 17. Not until recently did I realize how lost I am. Ten years later and I feel like God has brought me back–I’m ready to dive into The Word again and put my trust in Jesus.

    • Emily

      That is really amazing you have come so far it sounds like and just know that you are so very powerful with Jesus on your side. May God bless you.

  • go Jesus! ❤️

  • This is really what I have been needing I have been needing to spend more time with god but I keep getting distracted.
    Until now.

  • Maryanna

    Love it. So good.

  • He never fails to show me each day how great He is. I’m so thankful I stumbled upon this app and especially this gospel plan. He has rescued me from darkness and continues to amaze me more and more each day. I’m so thankful for His never ending grace

  • I am feeling so blessed to be called to Jesus for the first time in my life. Although I have a lot of questions still and I don’t understand what it really means to be saved, I have hope that everything I need will be revealed to me in the perfect time.

    • Delaney

      Hi, Taylor!
      Wow! That is awesome! I will be praying the Christ will reveal himself more and more to you every day!
      I would love to talk, if you want to know more about Jesus and what it means to follow Him!

  • I am super excited to be a part of this! I have been in a dry place lately and hope that this may restore my love and passion for Him.
    Quick question: are there any other teens here?

  • Rebeckah

    Resting in who He is, what He has done for us, and who He created us to be.

  • I cried when I read you are broken. I’ve been going through a lot lately. My boyfriend cheated on me with one of my best friends. He then spread around to many people I know that I cheated on him and that I was promiscuous. Although he used other words. I feel like an idiot and I feel like I have lost myself and my relationship with God, because I devoted a year of my life to an earthly man who took advantage of me rather than my Lord and Savior that would forever take care of me. I hope reading more about Him and His word can repair my relationship and help me find me again.

    • Lila

      Hi Lauryn,
      We are all broken. We all make mistakes and He loves us anyways. And you are most definitely not an idiot! God is with you all the time just waiting to heal you, listen to you and LOVE you just as you are. Read your bible every day, pray and spend time with Him as often as you can… He will restore you! Just focus on the Lord. God Bless You.
      P.S: I know how badly a broken heart feels. It hurts so bad :( But Jesus will mend that broken heart and you will find a Godly man that you are meant to be with (when the time is right).

  • I have been working with two ladies who aren’t Saved, and I choose this study to help me in my sharing of the gospel with them. I am so excited to be apart of this community of Godly women! I pray for our our to rightly respond to the Words of truth we read in this study.

  • Amen, this was great!

  • abigail kemper

    so happy to be forever changed by his all encompassing love and truth. wandering in His beautiful creation as he reveals himself to me everyday.

  • Sydney Hubbard

    The Gospel will last forever and is truth

  • So easily we forget that the Gospel is part of our DAILY lives, even after we come to salvation. I forget I AM His daughter: redeemed & loved. I fear that I have fallen TOO far away. I fill up with other “gods” & there’s little time or room for Jesus. I forsake the daily Gospel in my life – BUT the Gospel CHANGES everything! I was broken: I am healed. I was lost: I am found. I was depressed: I have Hope!
    Looking forward to this journey with you! <3

  • can’t wait to get into this reading plan. God is good!

  • just found out about this app not long ago and I love it!

    I am a sophomore at Auburn University and I am so excited to go through this study and remind myself that the Gospel really does change everything. Please pray that i will have the boldness to share what I learn with my sorority sisters and peers here at Auburn. The Lord is moving in Auburn, Alabama and it is incredible to witness. Be praying for this sweet campus!!!

    • LisaJo

      I will be praying for you! Remember WHOSE you are and draw from HIS storehouse of strength!

  • Julie Carla

    This past summer, I was completely consumed with the everything except for Jesus. I was busy constantly, travelling, working 6 days a week; going to church felt like another thing to add on my list. In September, I was sitting by myself in the pew at church and as I was singing a worship song I’ve sang 100 times, I immediately broke down and realized that my whole summer I was neglecting my relationship with Jesus. My eyes had opened to Him again and I wanted to stay focused on Him instead of my worldly possessions. Since then I have set the verse of the day to pop up on my phone every morning. It’s something so simple and easy but I like starting my day with the word of God. I just downloaded this app and will now continue with it to strengthen and to go deeper than I have before with my relationship with my one and only Saviour.

  • Jamie Lea

    I pray for the childlike spirit to fully accept Jesus loves me this I know, simply because the Bible told me so. Lord bring back that spirit and take away the negative thoughts the devil has placed in my mind. You are loving and wonderful God and I am so thankful for your endless love!

  • Lord, please help us ladies to stay committed and to look for You in our daily lives. Help us to pay attention to the things we read and to try and implement them in our daily walk with you. You are good. You are so so good. Amen.

  • I have spent the last few months digging into the Word for the first time in a while, and the more I read, the more I realize how far my life and heart have drifted from Christ and the gospel. I fell in love with religion rather than my Savior, and I’m hoping that reading through this with you will remind me of the greatness of God, the grace of the Son, and the beauty of the Good News.

  • I just got out of a 9 month long relationship with a guy who was pulling me away from everything I know. I quit going to church, I stuck my bible up on the top shelf in my closet so I wouldn’t have to see it and feel guilty that I abandoned God. I just moved back home and I felt so empty. I couldn’t figure out what it was until I sat down and reevaluated the past little bit of my life. The empty I was feeling was the lack of God in my heart. The painful emptiness I was feeling was God calling me back to Him. Calling me back to His word. He was calling me back to everything I once knew. I am so happy I realized this now instead of further down the road. I need this, and I am so glad I found you ladies. I will be praying that each and everyone one of you find what you’re looking for, and that you find what God wants you to find. May you find happiness in all your troubles.

  • Emily Bridge

    I have turned away from my walk these past few months. I am so thankful that God forgives my messy heart and welcomes me back when I do this with open arms. I feel so full and I know it is the Holy Spirit telling me welcome back! I’m am praying for you lovely ladies. May God speak to each of us as we go on this journey!

  • With this study I hope to gain a deeper understanding of who you are Lord and deepen my faith in You. I pray that this study affects us all in profound ways !

  • Lord, I pray that not only do I read these words but that hold onto my heart with a never had before understanding. Thank you Jesus.

  • crystalclear1123

    here we go, ladies of NEST — I love the way this starts. completely known, yet completely loved.

  • Rachel House

    since the plans are daily devotionals how do you organize it into a small group study that meets once per week? I am interested in going thru the 2015 advent study with my women’s group. suggestions please! :)

  • Whoa! I’ve been a little down about how my body has all these aches and pains and has other troubles at only 35. I’m feeling like my best days, within myself, are gone. Last night I opened my devotional, Jesus Calling. (October 20) I was wowed by how it lined up with what I’m going through. This morning, I opened this app, She Reads Truth, that a friend encouraged me to download. I chose this devotion, This is the Gospel, as a “good start”. Once again, I am wowed about how day one’s devotion has lined up with how I am feeling lately. I’m letting my song be Psalm 139:14 today, and I’m praising Jesus in every season of life.

  • 15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.

    3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance : that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,

    Verse 15 basically says how I feel every day but then I remember Christ sacrificed himself for our sin and that he loves us unconditionally despite our wrongdoings

  • This is a great follow up on yesterday’s sermon…we must love our neighbor as ourself…the problem is that we don’t love ourself, so how can we love our neighbor? We must accept that God loves us, in all our flaws…and learn to love ourselves, as well. Only then, can we learn to love each other. <3

  • Love this App; so well put together.

  • Cristina

    I see more and more my skepticism and yet I want to have a child like belief and hope and majestic wonder of God made strong with life’s experiences. I’m looking forward to getting to know God as an adult , a decision and desire coming from my heart not obligation. This is a new chapter and blank slate God has blessed me with I’m happy to start this journey with Jesus: 1st step getting to know His story!

  • IRECINOZ

    Very excited to start this! Getting back on the path of the Lord Jesus Christ!!

  • I need this. To take control of my life and to have God return to the center of my life. I need to let go of my worries and give them to God because he will fill my heart more than everyone else on this world.

  • Jess Garcia

    I’m starting over my life. I found this app and I’m definitely going to be using it every morning because it makes me so happy and ready to start my day.

  • So thankful I came across this app. I’m a 25 year old mother of two little ladies, 3 years old and 9 months old. I’ve let the Lord slip out of view more that I care to admit, but I am determined to make a positive shift in my life. Thank you for the encouragement, I wish everyone the best of luck in their spiritual journey.

  • Hi! My name is Jamie, I’m 15 years old and currently about to move schools. I’m really struggling to stay in the Word, but know my heart is yearning for the love and peace that Jesus brings. I’m so glad I’ve got something now to keep me accountable! Thank you & God bless xx

  • It has been years, sadly, since I have consistently been in His word. I feel thirsty and exhausted. I hope this is what I have been looking for as a way to draw my heart closer to Him again.

  • Stumbled across SheReadsTruth today and I’m hooked. I’m 23 and I’ve been working in ministry for the past year and a half, but never found a healthy routine to focus on scripture and my personal time with God. Grateful for how He provides. Looking forward to learning and growing with you lovely women!

  • Steph Giesbrecht

    Hi, I am a 26 yr old Christian Mennonite. Married 3.5 years and very happy. This is exciting to me to be part of this study.

  • Hi! My name is Kayla and this is my first series through SheReadsTruth. I stumbled across the app on the interwebs and decided that God led me right to it. I’m a 23 year old who has been married to her high school sweet heart for 2-1/2 years. I am currently the only one who is working due to my husband being in Chiropractic school. I love my job but work can be exhausting at times which has led to a severe lack in quiet time with the Lord. I am ecstatic that I have found something that works well with my schedule and can’t wait to start digging into the word once again. Many blessings to you all!

    • SheReadsTruth

      Hi Kayla! Thanks for joining us! So glad you are here! Praying for your time in God’s Word today.

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • Hi! My name is Brittany and I’ve recently discovered that God is calling me into the ministry. I’m going to help people heal from abuse! I’m so excited to know that God is taking my past and making me use it for my future. For His Glory. Please pray with me as I start this exciting path.

    • Lauren

      Praying for you Brittany as you enter a new chapter of life with our Savior! He works amazing miracles!

    • Abby

      Praying for you❤️

    • Rachel Williford

      In the lords name I pray your journey with God will lead you in an eternity with our saviour. He works miracles and gives us the strength to push on when no one is by our side. I pray that you will turn to see the beauty in the lords word. I pray today and tonight and every day to come you follow in an unending miraculous journey with God. Amen

  • Hi. My name is Jessica and this is the first time I’ll be doing this reading plan. I’m reaching out because I desperately need prayer. I’ve turned away from God most of my life and now that I’m ready to get back into his Word, I have trouble with doubting the truth of it. I so want to believe again and pray everyday that He just holds on to me until I see him again. I really needed to read the part that says “Even though we cannot fully understand it, it doesn’t make it untrue” (or something along those lines). I’m so grateful for this bible study and just want to thank you for it. :)

    • Ashley Richmond

      Praying for you, your heart, and your walk with Christ. He does wonderful things through the least likely of people, and He is with you always!

    • Lauren

      Hey Jessica! I will be praying for you as you step back into your walk with Christ. Just know that we are, in fact, human and it’s ok to doubt. It’s our nature. But those who trust in Jesus with their whole hearts receive the best comfort from Him. He knows out struggles, and the best thing is: He’s always willing to forgive them. I have struggled with this as well and I want you to know — it gets better!

      • Jessica

        Thank you for your encouragement. I am so glad I got the courage to reach out. You women are so supportive and kind and I’m so very grateful for it.

    • Miranda M

      Jessica I struggle with doubt as well. I will pray for you if you will pray for me! May God help us both to get rid of any unbelief!

    • Sara

      Jessica…it’s ok to doubt. God doesn’t get nervous about who He is when we doubt. Better to investigate and search and discover the Truth for yourself than to lean on someone else’s faith. When it becomes yours, it will be rock solid, unmovable and it will remain. God is ever ready to guide us in our search. He knows exactly where to lead us and what our hearts are longing for. He said to ask, to seek and to knock. He said it will be given and you will find and the door will open.

  • Hi! This is my first series too. We have four kids (15, 13, and 6 year old twins). We are homeschooling the twins and I’ve been having a hard time finding “me time” to connect with God. I’m excited to start this study. I pray you all have a beautiful day and feel His presence always.

    • SheReadsTruth

      Hi Jenny! So glad you are joining us! Praying for your time in God’s Word today!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • Hi there! This is my first series with SheReadsTruth and am very excited to get back in the Word. I’m a 31 year old, married for two years, no kids just yet. Feeling isolated and looking for new friends as we haven’t found a church home yet and other couples in our season of life. Looking forward to branching out and learning with this virtual group!

    • SheReadsTruth

      Hi Sarah! Welcome to our community! Praying for your time in God’s Word today!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • I’m new to this app. I’m excited about this journey.

  • How are you ladies adding a profile picture

  • New to this app :) just testing the comment section

  • Leonetta

    I’m new to this but am loving his app so far. Does anyone have thoughts on verse 12? It strikes me that we often talk about what is dimly seen and understood is God- but what the passage actually refers to is a mirror- not a window. Which means that which is not well seen and understood is ourselves. This resonates with me as I’m in a season of life where I am trying to better know myself. I am learning new that understanding myself and knowing my purpose, calling and gifts can’t will happen as I get to know God. And in knowing God, I will better know my truest self- face to face.

    • Charis Lowe

      Jeremiah 17:10: “the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked; who can know it? I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give to every man according to his deeds.” (Paraphrase/quoted from memory, so there may be a few words off here and there). I liked your observation! God knows us better than we know ourselves, and getting to know Him better helps us to understand who we are in so many ways. I am with you in the sense that I want to know myself better- and, more importantly, to know God better. Saying a prayer for you tonight.

  • The cross before me, the world behind me. No turning back. No turning back

  • Catherine Stanley

    God is so so good

  • The Cross is the power of God. He is so good.

  • I am a 26 year old mommy to a two year old and a 3 month old. I am tired and I feel so disconnected yet I am constantly doing. I found this app to help he stay accountable to myself and remind myself to spend time with God even when I feel I am too tired or busy.

    • Olivia

      We are the same person! Literally everything is the same! I’m using my few minutes in between kids napping and waking up to be remind of God’s truth. Blessings to you today, may you be able to have a hot cup of coffee, snuggles, and a nap!

  • Praise the lord ! No more playing around . Time to get serious.

  • ❤️❤️❤️ time to get right with God

  • Cristhal

    This app has awakened my soul once again! Praise God because He is good all of the time & He is coming soon!

  • Thirsty*

  • My soul is thirst. So thankful my sister shared this app with me.

  • This is my first time using She Reads Truth and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me as well as what fellowship with you ladies will entail.

  • Analicia Blanco

    This is my first study on she reads truth, and I’m so excited! This is just what I needed! I’m in a current state of a “funk” in my faith, and a structured devotion is just what I needed for my days. Can’t to be in fellowship and share with all you ladies!

  • Elizabeth

    I’m super excited to read the gospels as a daughter of Christ in school. I want my peers to know the story… But before I can share with them, I must fully understand the Gospel myself. I’m beyond blessed to have a community like this where I am able to share my journey with Christ with the other members!

  • Hannah Nelson

    Feeling compelled to share the gospel with my classmates, and realized the other day that I have no idea what I would say even if given the opportunity! So blessed to have found this study and love having the reminder of just how incredible and merciful the story of the Gospel truly is.

  • April Siefner

    I am hoping to recapture that spark. I pray a lot, but never read the word. I will read joyce meyer but never just the word. I havent beem to church in about 6 months or so. I am just feeling lazy I guess, and that has me feeling really guilty. I also have a terrible mouth, and cuss a lot…not your shining star of a Christian, even though I am saved and call myself one…

    • Hannah

      I am right there with you, April. I am no shining star and like you I don’t speak like one either. But I believe that over time as God fills your heart that is what will start to come out our mouths. I’m not a big church goer or pretty talker but I have a good heart and I think that is a good place to start. Praying for you.

    • AmyLovesJesus

      God still loves you and knows your heart is in the right place. Just let your action speak louder than your words.

  • I just found out I can get She Reads Truth app on my phone and am starting This is the Gospel as my first study. I’m excited to learn about the Gospel even more than I know now.

  • Chgodrmr

    I had this app before and have just found it again I don’t know if I’ve ever posted but today I want to encourage Hannah as I too walked, actually ran away from God for years after a devastating loss. I went from being a missionary to an angry disbelieving woman. It is not a season I am proud of. God kept me safe from myself and now I am in Celebrate Recovery and it has been my transition vehicle back to God through others who have also experienced deep hurts and in the process hurt God, self and others. Todays devotion was so applicable to my life as it reminded me yes he died for me trash pile over flowing with debris he wants every nasty piece because it is a part of me. He wants the heap that never made it into the trash can also because he wants to love and care for me as a whole!

  • I’ve been away from God for a long time and I have become a huge questioner. I know that I believe God is there and that he loves but it’s so hard to believe when you feel so distant. This is me taking my first step to find Him again.

    • Jeanna

      Hannah, I’ve never written on here before, but felt led to respond to you. I’m reminded of the verse “come near to God and He will come near to you”. I just want to encourage you to be in community with other believers. I am learning the importance of that. Praying for you!!!!

  • Sarah Joy

    It’s great to constantly be reminded of the truths of the Gospel. I’ve never done a plan like this before but I’m looking forward to the next 13 days of this study.

  • SC, I think I know what you mean. For 20+ years I felt like I was doing “Christian things” because I’d make people unhappy if I didn’t. Now that I’ve been married I’ve been able to keep my spiritual life more to myself (I know that’s not a good thing!) but I haven’t KNOWN God in quite some time. I am just now MAKING myself have a devotion because I WANT a relationship with God but I feel nothing. I honesty don’t CARE. I’m rambling in hopes to understand what I mean but I don’t even know! Has anyone else felt like this?

    • Christine

      Kate, I have gone through times like these where my heart does not desire a relationship with the Lord. Pray with all your might that God would change your heart and set a desire in you to pursue him! Stay confident knowing that while we are not enough, He is I Am.

    • Emily Callahan

      I know the feeling…I have been reaching out to God and I really want to know him on a personal level but I feel so distant. I’m just going to continue to pray and hope as much as I can!

  • Virginia

    Oh, the beauty God creates from broken pieces is magnificent. To know that broken now doesn’t mean broken forever!!!

  • This is gonna be a good two weeks, I really need to make my relationship with him stronger and I have been struggling a lot with it.

  • Cassi Worsham

    I am glad to have extra help in furthering my relationship with the Lord

  • I like this and I needed to start spending more time in bible. I know this will help me a lot

  • Courtney Kesler

    I’m excited to finally get back into the Word. This seems like a good way to get back in the swing of things for me

  • This seems like a great devotion study

  • I don’t wanna be guilt tripped into being close to God again. Been there, done that. I want something genuine. I hope this can help me!! :)

    • Jessica

      Just started this today and your comment grabbed me. My husband and I were just talking the other day about this underlying guilt we have for thinking and doing things differently than we were taught. Guilt put there by people, not the Holy Spirit. We are on a journey of letting go of that and finding the truth in the scriptures.

  • Emily shearin

    Looking forward to this!!

  • Jennifer

    Looking forward to using this study to help me dig deeper in God’s word!

  • You were designed on purpose- what a beautiful reminder of our immeasurable and unshakable value in Christ.

  • Caroline

    As a young woman in today’s world, I agree completely with being broken. But finding the pieces to make me whole in his love is exactly what I intend to do. Hopefully this study guides me more into that direction!

  • A youth minister recommend this app to me in order to help build my relationship with God! I am a college student and so excited to read more about His scripture!

  • Chillimom

    A youth in our church recommended this app to me. I’m looking forward to digging deeper into His word!

  • using this study to help me get back in the Word on a regular basis. it’s been a while. so thankful for this resource!

  • The last three weeks at our new church our pastor has spoken about the importance of keeping the integrity of the true gospel. I love being able to expand and fill my heart more with this truth.

  • Hannah Bohrer

    My husband recommended that I download this app, and I’m so glad he did :)

  • CoffeewithAdrienne

    Love The Gospel by Jimmy Needham!
    http://youtu.be/VVN4smFfdwo

  • Hannah Anderson

    Im in love with this and I just started it! I started leading a small group tonight of young girls and I’m so excited to use this as a tool to teach them how to follow Jesus step by step and remind them each that they are beautiful daughters of God.

  • I love the song by this title- so good. I think Meredith Andrews?

    • CoffeewithAdrienne

      Not sure about that one, it look up The Gospel by Jimmy Needham. Awesome song!

  • I am too too too excited for this plan! I am ready to have an encounter with my Creator.

  • Gabrielle Doraisamy

    Hello all, I just downloaded this app and so far love it! I am beginning this reading plan today and hope to continue it in hopes of getting back on track with my relationship with God.

  • Enort527

    I am so excited about this study!! I’ve been struggling with anxiety/depression and I think this study is what I need right now. I so badly want to grow my relationship with Christ but feel lost as to where to begin, which is silly since I’ve been a Christian for about 20 yeas. I’ve been a believer but not one growing as I should. I think this is where I need to start. So excited about this!!!!

    • Lizzie

      I used to struggle with depression, and I am not going to lie at times I still do, but a willing heart is all God asks. I am praying for you. I pray that this plan. helps you on your journey.

    • Theresa Hover

      I know how you feel, feeling separated from a God you used to know so well. I hope and pray God speaks to my heart and your heart through this journey of rediscovery

  • Brittney Brewer

    I just started too very excited to study with such wonderful ladies.

  • Coming to this community in a season of dust and drought. Thankful that the word is true regardless of how wet the soil is.

  • Hannah Vanegas

    I am a newly wed and I want to build a strong foundation in my marriage. I have been brought up in church my whole life, my grandfather was a pastor until he passed. My mom and dad met in church, my whole life has been God-centered. Here lately I have lost touch of my relationship and been trying to fix things all my own, all while forgetting who the true problem solver is. I hope to rekindle my relationship with God and plant a seed in my life as a wife and a woman of God. Pray for me and my husband as we build our very new marriage into what God has intended it to be.

    • Hannah Chacon

      I couldn’t have said it better myself Hannah. I am newly married as well and am in the same position. I pray that being a part of this group will help you to grow as a woman. And with that become a strong Loving wife to your husband.

  • Just started and am very excited about learning more about the gospel

  • I promised myself that this year I would get closer to knowing who Christ is and discovering the Bible. However I felt I have drifted more apart from God. I feel like I’m being pulled towards the Bible again. I can’t wait to start this plan. I feel it would really help me start a consistent daily plan of reading my Bible and uncovering the Gospel.

  • ” you were designed on purpose” just sits so heavy with me. For a long time I questioned myself, God, my faith, and everything around me because I just felt like a failure and that all of the wrong decisions I was making were the “right” ones and that I was {destined} to be a screw up. Only recently I came back to my faith and realized that I WAS DESIGNED ON PURPOSE. And those rough patches I had were a way of the Lord saying- “Hello! Pay attention to me!” “Stop questioning me and just LISTEN to me!”

  • I crave the deep relationship with our God I pray he uses me and guides me for his will! This is the direction I need to go!

  • Rachel B

    Just discovered this app today. I walked away from the church 12 years ago but have recently felt called back. Hoping to take the right steps to regain my faith.

    • Justine R

      You seem to be taking the right steps so far. God gave us Church for a reason, because Christianity is about relationship. Not only our relationship with Him, but our relationship with fellow believers so we can build each other up! So, so happy to hear that you are feeling called back! I’ll be praying for you, God bless!

  • SeekYouFirst

    everything in my life changed a couple years ago and I have this desire to know as much about God as possible. So blessed to have your Word and learn more about you Lord.

  • The greatest of these is LOVE. I am the greatest dinner and Jesus saved me so that others may see how amazing He is.

  • Looking forward to remembering the sweetness of the gospel. So often I find myself striving to be good enough for God’s approval instead of resting and receiving the grace that He freely gives in Jesus.

  • I am all in!

  • I love knowing I’m a child of God!

  • I’m in

  • Ashley Howell

    Appreciating the redirecting of my thoughts back toward Jesus and his Gospel. I feel as though I am walking through a spiritual desert as I am bombarded by my discontentment and the demands of each day…

  • I need prayers right, it is so hard for accept things the way they are.

  • Trovina Zhuang

    Growing up in the Church, I thought I knew so much.. That I had all this knowledge of who Jesus was. I had it all wrong & now in my 20s, I want to discover who Jesus really is & what He’s done for me.

  • Reading this at sunrise, I am reminded this is THE truth; it will last long beyond the power of these worldly things, even the most basic & beautiful as the sun.

  • Chelsea Pickard

    I am struggling so much and this is something that I desperately needed. Thank you Jesus

  • This is exactly what I needed to read today. Life has been overwhelmingly difficult lately and I need God

    • Erin

      I’m with you, Emily! The last two weeks have been very difficult for me as well. Thankful for God’s truth and how desperately I need it! Prayers to you.

  • Griffimama

    Desperately searching for God! I want to know Him, to love Him. As long as we are breathing it is never too late.

  • Sarah Healan

    I am excited to see where this devotional takes me. I am a pastor’s daughter and have grown up with the Bible and its teachings my whole life. I’ve always been very involved in our church ministry through teaching Sunday school, helping in the nursery, and directing VBS. However, this past year has been very difficult for me (I’ve been trying to find a teaching job since 2010) but I was absolutely devastated when I lost a great childhood friend to brain cancer at the beginning of this school year. His funeral and one for our head Deacon whom I am very close with were one week apart from each other. It hit me like a brick and for days I would just sob at the drop of a hat. I mostly have felt convicted because of the way my life has been going-bitterness, anger, complaining all the time, and even not attending some church services because I knew I would just cry. However, reading God’s Word and praying is helping already but I am looking forward to diving deeper through this devotional.

  • His love is so fantastic! His sacrifice made perfect! Because of Him, we are made holy & righteous! Oh what a God we serve, that He would accept & love us without question

  • It is easy to brush over The Good News, it is easy to forget in a broken world. But God loves me and all I need to do is share in His love and share His love. It is abundant.

  • God is good !

  • I’m loving this! I absolutely love the verse in 1 Corinthians and I love how it goes on to say that without the gospel everything we do is worthless BUT because the gospel is true, everything has meaning! Too good!

  • Hi y’all! I am new on the app, so excited to start this journey though! I have always liked to believe that I’ve had such a strong faith, but recently my faith has been put to the test and I am desperately trying to restrengthen it. I want more of a relationship with the Lord than a religion, the rules and guidelines are exhausting and I just want a relationship. I’m hoping this app and bible study will help me achieve this relationship. Recently my mother was diagnosed with lymphoma, this is one of the leading causes of my faith being put to the test. Being a teenage girl, life throws so many things my way, but I never expected cancer in my family to be one of them. I can feel the Lord tugging at my heart calling me towards him and I want so desperately to surrender my whole self to him, and I’m hoping this experience can help me. I am very excited to begin this journey with this app and hope to grow in it in so many ways.

    • Cathy

      Hi Whitney :) I’m so sorry to hear about your mom..I’ll be praying for you both. I’m also learning how to press into God during a difficult time. I’ve been having a really difficult time in my career over this last year. I let my emotions get the best of me & could feel myself floating in & out of depression…I felt hopeless like I was lost at sea. I started reading & listening to sermons about controlling my thoughts & guarding my heart & mind. God has given me a new assignment to learn self control at 35! Lol I have about 5 index cards that I carry with me filled with scripture on self control, God’s power & holding my tongue. It makes me feel like Jesus is with me at work & it’s been a blessing on the worst days. I encourage you to find scripture on healing, hope & God’s love to carry with you & even share with your mom. You can grow your faith together…and where 2 or more are gathered, the Lord is with them! Matthew 18:20 <3

      Hi Whitney! I am so sorry to hear about your mom. Praying now that the Lord would be with you both during this time. Six months ago, I was diagnosed with lymphoma. Receiving this news at any age, but especially at 22, my world was shaken. It is such an emotional and uncertain time. But at the same time, surrendering to Him during this trial, I experienced the Lords presence, peace and love in amazing ways like I never had before. I hope that you too may see the Lords goodness through this trial and be at peace knowing He is in control and has a plan and purpose!

    • Casey

      Praying and praising God for y’all whitney!

  • Amy Edwards

    I’m going through a really terrible break up and these words from our savior are bringing me so much comfort as well as knowing the fellowship of all of us will support me. praise Jesus

    • Kenzie Feuerbach

      Thank you so much for replying, Amy! It feels so good to be heard. I’m sorry you are going through it, too. Man, if healing could just happen. But the truth is, it’s a process. I’ll be here to talk to you whenever.

    • Kristin

      Praying for you Amy

  • Kenzie Feuerbach

    Hi! I just want to share a little bit in hopes someone may reach out, offer prayer, or find hope through this situation. I recently broke up with my boyfriend of the past two years. He was a wonderful person and he loved me, but he was an idol in my heart. I felt tugs on my heart from God telling me he was jealous, that he wanted more of me. I spoke with a few mentors about it, and they all gave me advice that lined up with each other’s, and lined up with what I was feeling. So I took a leap of faith and broke up with him. In hopes this would be a time of spiritual growth for the both of us, growth that couldn’t happen with us relying on each other. I felt confident and sure that it was the right thing to do, and as hard as it was to watch him beg for it not to happen, I stood firm. And now… Almost a month later, I’m an absolute freakin mess. It feels as if someone is stepping on my heart to the point right before it just bursts. I sob… And I mean the “cannot catch a breath, baby like, ugly, worse than Kim kardashian” SOB… Every day. More than once a day. I pray constantly, reminding myself truth is who God is and what he is. Loving father, redeemer, my Lover who holds me and thinks delightfully about me, my comforter, my refuge, my strength, etc. I could go on for days. But the pain and heartbreak is so real right now, and becomes more and more real every day. I’ve thought about getting back together with him, and actually tried to have a conversation with him about it, and he shut me down. I’ve never felt pain like that in my life, but Gods provision is over all… Remembering that and believing that, wholly, is a constant battle in this season though.

    I’m looking for friends. For community. If you live in the Austin area, I’d love for you to let me know. I’d love to get to know you and love on you.
    Kenzie

    • Amy Edwards

      Hi Kenzie you are blessed and god will reward you for putting him first before any man… I have just gone through this literally 2 days ago! The pain is so real and you do just need to be in constant prayer. I’m here for you

    • Vanessa Kestner

      Hi Kenzie :) I’m Vanessa! First of, I would like to exhort you for the courage you had to tell your story here…it’s definitely not easy to go through and definitely not easy to talk about. But sharing your story speaks levels about your humbleness to acknowledge your need for help in a time of struggle. Just two months ago I broke up with my best friend/boyfriend of 5 years. I won’t go into detail about why the breakup had to occur, but I want you to know that you are not alone in your struggle, and there is someone out there praying for you…me! These past two months have been the hardest months of my life. The heartbreak is almost unbearable. That being said, I have found solace in the scripture that talks about how God’s thoughts are above our thoughts and His ways are above our ways…we cannot even begin to imagine what He has in store for us. We tend to plan our lives out and get set in those plans…but God has His own, and trust me, they are much better than ours! Focus on being faithful to God, and He will not forget that, I promise. Stay encouraged, and be blessed!

      Vanessa

  • Hi just found this I am excited to learn more in His Pressence and His word

  • Hey everyone! I’ve been really going through it lately :(. Heart broken and lost.. But I came across this app in hopes of focusing more on God and his purpose for my life. Hope to connect with some new Christian friends along the way!

    • Erin

      I’m excited for you Sharon! Relying on God opens the door for peace in your life. Not only that, but I’ve found life is easy when God gives you direction. I hope life will look a little more sunny for you, but if trials come know that God invites you to cast your cares on him. It says that his yoke is easy and his burden is light. I wish the best for you!

  • After getting my cousin on the bus in the morning I have a little slice of time to spend with The Word. I’m so grateful for this app that makes this an easy and beautiful part of my morning.

  • First day with this app! So grateful for my friend who casually showed it to me. It’s been JUST what I’ve needed to jump start back into God’s word and truth at the beginning of my day. Have a great day everyone!!

  • Good morning! This is my first SRT study and I’m excited to jump in. Praying yall have a great Monday– glad to know others are doing this too!

  • Aysha Drakeford

    Good evening
    I’m excited to join. God bless.

  • Lauren Jording

    I am very excited to begin this with a small group from church!

  • Good morning all. I’m looking so forward to this app and these devotionals. Sometimes I struggle with putting God at the center of my life though have been Catholic my entire life. Looking forward to this journey with you all.

  • Starting a New journey with this app, trying to get more time with the Word in my crazy hectic days.

  • I am so excited to start this prayer journey with you ladies! I will be praying for you :)
    Please pray for me, I was heartbroken in the beginning of this year, and still recovering… I pray that I only allow God to be my true love at this moment in time. Thank you :)

  • Courtney

    I’m new to the app, but am so thankful for finding this! I have fallen away from my faith in recent years, and lately I’ve felt a tugging at my heart to get back and get right with God. I am starting to read the Bible and this devotional is the perfect way to incorporate a closer look at scripture. I’m so very excited to dig in!!

  • Christina

    Excited to have a great resource to draw me closer to the Lord!

  • Whitney Berger

    just started today!! love this app!! thanks ladies!!

  • God is so good.

  • Jessica Renee

    In the past 4 days I heard The Lord speak to me through the radio. I was on my way home from Dallas to Houston.

    It was a Sunday and one station I could find was a Christian station so I thought why now…. The song “Follow Me” came on and then it was a mass on the radio (Baptist) I fell in love with what I heard and I cried and I sang and worshipped.

    2 days ago I was on my way home and I felt like I needed to go to a Christian store…. I bought my first ever bible.

    Been reading it slowly. I feel so alive and high

    • Megan

      Jessica Renee — yay!! Praise the LORD for what He is doing in your life! Thanks for sharing and I wish I could hug you and CELEBRATE with you! Your life will never be the same with Jesus!

  • Jeanette

    I’m new to this app world :) I would like to say hello to everybody! I’m so thankful to be a child of the king. I wish I could say I know the bible from front to back, but I have fallen short. I am looking forward to plan and many others with hopes of understanding the Word and getting closer to God. I will pray for all of us!

  • Bethie Sue

    So many things I’d like to say right now, but I will just start with “Thank You!”
    -You are broken-tragically broken… Ah! I am broken and it feels tragic. So many pieces lay scattered around me and I am lost in the middle. I have no idea where to start or what’s next.
    I told someone just this afternoon I feel like a rebellious teenager who is trying to find themselves. Problem is I just turned 30!
    I don’t feel it right now but I’m so thankful for hope and for people who take time to put into words and encouragement the things I need reminder of to many times!
    Again… Thank you and God bless the work you are doing.

  • Hope can change everything!

  • Sharon Blake

    I saw this app mentioned on connecting grace.com. I am looking forward to reading each day.

  • Caroline Kunkel

    This is so encouraging!! What an unfathomable love that God provides to us.

  • Katie Cordova

    Um where has this been my whole believing life?!?! #amen thank you Jesus!

  • Kristina Johnson

    I am excited for this app and I want to meditate on one scripture a day to help me grow stronger in my faith, would someone like to do it with me?

  • So thankful for this app!

  • Just found this App on Instagram and I’m already in love. God knew I needed this. I cannot wait to study His word!

  • I’m trying to draw closer to the cross, and this school year, as a junior, it is not only my year to find myself, but to lose myself in the word of Christ.

    • Cheyenne

      McKenna, I’m a senior and feel the exact same way about this year, I would love if you’d want to do this devotional together?

  • Paige Moose

    Such an amazing app! Fills me with so much joy to read all of these wonderful stories. Can’t wait to see how this app is going to affect me and my walk with the Lord!

  • This was an amazing devotional and I can not explain my joy in finding this app! I’m in middle school so I think this will help me stay firm in my faith, and not conform to the ways of the world

  • Rachel Thompson

    Just started grad school and my new roommate shared this with me, can’t believe I am just now discovering it but I am super excited about this devo and the others available! God bless all you sisters in Christ as you read!!

  • I’m so happy to discover this app. Saw it mentioned on instagram & immediately checked it out. As soon as I did, I just had to tell my friends…who it turned out already knew about it and didn’t tell me! Well now I’m telling everyone. Lol. I really needed a new way to interact with the Bible recently to stay on top of it daily, so thank you for the work you do! The interactivity helps. ❤️

  • NatashaLucille

    This a much needed app in my life now… I really needed to embrace the Lord and read scripture.

  • Laura Elizabeth

    Love this already!!

  • Was encouraged to get this app by one of my most treasured mentors and friends. After a life changing summer doing mission work in Asia and bring renewed in my belief of the gospel every day, I am so excited to have happened upon this study stateside. I have hope that it will help me not lose sight of the gospel I relearned this summer while I am back in the swing of “normal” life! Thanks for writing it :)

  • Karin Hensley

    Thanks to Emily at Jones Design Co. for sharing the information on this app!!

  • Yana Vasilenko

    I ❤️❤️❤️ this app. Thank you so much for finding a way to bring a group of women together that have a similar purpose in life to follow Jesus

  • Emma McDaniel

    my bible study leader told me about this! so glad I got it!

  • ^ what she said. I was looking at a pin talking about reorganizing your morning to run smoother, and I happened upon this. So grateful.

  • Kadie Lawrence

    I just happened upon this while looking for a devotional app for personal study and this is exactly what I was looking for! :) This week has not been fabulous and this was exactly what I needed for a pick me up. I call it providence :)

  • Kristina7799

    Just joined… Looks like this will be exciting!

  • Courtney Pacheco

    Found this amazing app on Pinterest. This is exactly what I need and what I’ve been looking for! A exciting and lovely new beginning is ahead

  • I’ve been so so so long away from diving into God’s word daily. I’m so so so thankful for the app! It spurred me to gather a group of my friends from all different areas of my life on FB to do a bible study together. It’s completely out of my comfort zone to organize something like that…but I’m so excited, and can’t wait to grow, encourage and help one another as we navigate through God’s word using your amazing Bible Study Plans. “This is the Gospel” seemed like an appropriate study to begin our our bible study group with. Thank you for creating this resource, and amazing community!!!❤️❤️❤️

  • Talan Durgin

    This is a new beginning, starting something great

  • God’s word always comforts me, I’ve been worrying lately, when I know better, coming to God’s word, restores my mind, & soul. I love Jesus, yes I do!!!!

  • Found this app through someone’s Facebook comments and couldn’t be more thankful. Perfect to get into the word and feel connected! ❤️

  • Elle Faith

    I’m glad that I have finally started! It’s never too late to jump right in! Thank you for this bible plan!

  • Lawren Johnson

  • Shayna Aasman

    Was introduced to this by my sister :) Excited to get into it and be more in my bible!!

  • Ashleigh Jordan

    Found you guys on Instagram and today I started this journey! Loving it so far!

  • Mollie Ozanne

    I feel so lost, for so long I thought of myself as a good Christian and I was changing myself instead of God changing me. I’m wearing this mask that I used to just put on every around people but now it’s pasted to my face and won’t come off , it’s gone so far that that’s who I’ve become and idk who the real me is. I want to love who I really am

    • Hannah

      Mollie, I feel like your mask can be related to the foggy window in this passage. You may think that your mask is impossible to take off, but we serve a God who has accomplishes impossible things! God loves who you are and He is pursuing you. If you have an impossible God on your side who loves you so deeply, then there’s definitely hope for your future.

    • Theresa

      Hi. I think it’s easy to get to this place. The great thing is God in His grace is revealing this to you and inviting you to draw closer to Him. To know Him and allow Him to transform and change you :)

  • I really like this devotion so far! excited to keep reading.

  • I have been ignoring God for a while and I haven’t been in his word at all. I knew that it would either be a prayer or scripture that showed me how much I need God right now. 1 Timothy 1:15-16 and your words just brought me right back. I am so excited to start this journey.

  • I fallen from my father and have found myself pressing through life as an orphan spirit. Recognizing that I have the best daddy in the universe is the best most wonderful feeling I the world. Excited to work through this study with a fresh eyes and a hungry heart.

  • Renewing my walk with Him is such an exciting experience and having this app to help is amazing! Looking forward to continuing to grow and strengthen my love and relationship with Him!!! I am broken, but know His ultimate desire is to mend me and I love Him more and more each day as He shows me His mending ways!

  • Lindsey Sandefer

    I love that our father is a father of love!

  • So excited for this app! As I see so many others are:) loved this first post…a good friend of mine recently moved across state, when I was moving back home from a 2 year stint states away from home. We have been discussing the fears, uncertainty, and lack of comfort there is when making such big life changes. But then I realized, moving away from home was the hardest thing I’ve done, I got thrown in the middle of nowhere and felt so incredible alone. Pleading to hear God and what He had planned for me, this lonely mess. And welp, low and behold…that’s exactly where He wanted me. Alone. Alone…because there I called out to Him like never before, and found Him like never before:) so my friend and I have been praying something unusual, for God to puts us in uncomfortable spots, places we don’t know what to do…so we can turn from out “perfectionist” ways, and humbly say, “here you go God…you can take the reigns on this one again” hehe:) His plan is so much better anywho!

  • Shelby King

    What a joy to breathe in the freshness and peace of the Lord in the middle of the back to school chaos.

  • Jordan Knox

    Day 1 of using this app and I love it. I’m very excited to dive deeper into God’s word and happy to have a community of women to share with.

    • TAJH

      Hello Jordan, I am very much in agreement with you. I recently downloaded this app and I am eager to dive in as well. It is important that we stay focused on the Lord and its apps like this that makes all the difference, especially when there are so many distractions trying to prevent us from reading the Word and gaining knowledge.

  • Nicole Huband

    i am new to this app and to this plan. i look forward to learning more and getting closer to God in the process.

  • Talia Jablonski

    We just had a 6 week sermon on how the gospel changes everything! And it truly does! The lord has us tight and is watching over us and our lives.

  • Ashley Watkins

    I adore this app! I haven’t been using it like I should in the past, but I’m back and ready to dive in! Welcome to an AH-MAH-ZING community of believers and prayer warriors!

  • Kassidy Ross

    Loving this app! Would all of you lovely ladies please keep me in prayer? Today was a bad day. Just feeling broken and far from the Lord today, battling some unbelief and jealousy in my heart. Please pray that God’s grace would saturate my heart and that all I would want is more of Him!

  • Brittany

    This is my first day using this app. I am so excited to have a resource that allows me to grow closer to God and Fellow sisters in Christ.

  • Kay Richelle

    I want to be totally consumed by Christ . I’m hoping this app will help me understand the word of God & help me with my walk
    .

  • Essence Chance

    Today is my first day using this app! I look forward to learning and growing with you ladies. I am going through trying times and feel alone and all I have right now is my faith in God our Father!

  • Tragically broken to know a living hope! Looking through a fog at it all. These truths make me grateful for a love that will not fail.

  • Olivia Wilson

    Please pray, I feel called to share the Word with my peers, but don’t know how. I would like to do a bible study of sorts, but my friend already does one. Any thoughts?

    • Mindy

      Start with asking good questions and being a good listener. I also recommend reading the beyond awkward book

  • I too know what it means to be a broken woman. My heart feels you. I have hope again and really want to see Jesus and know Him- I will pray for you right now dear Christina….”Dear Jesus, please embrace Christina today. I pray that she will be encouraged in some tangible way. Amen.”

  • Christina

    I’m so broken but So ready for God to heal me I want to understand him more and trust him more please pray for me on this journey to a greater understanding in our father

  • I’m so excited to continue this devotional !

  • Kailey Arnold

    This is what I needed!

  • elizabeth

    Loving these devotionals so much!

  • Savannah

    First day of using this app and I’m already loving it. Just finished the first day of my first devotion I have ever done. I grew up in church but am now a skeptic. I hope that this devotion gives me the hope I so desperately need. I’m glad I have sisters in Christ to share this new journey with. And I ask that you keep me in your prayers.

    • Amanda Kay Poppen

      Will keep you in my prayers Savannah! I pray that this app is as helpful and wonderful for you as it has been for me! I was so hungry for God and to learn his Word and I get it here daily! It helps keep me aligned with Him better on a level that is better for me to understand! God’s blessings to you!

    • Kailey Arnold

      God brought you here for a reason! And I’m so glad he did! Praying for you sweet girl

  • Maryellen

    I’m ready to take my spiritual life to a new level through decotion

  • First day and i’m already excited to know more. I love the way we can use technology to worship and honor the Lord together

  • Hailey Cunningham

    Very excited to know more about our God.

  • So excited to be able to be in the Word with others!

  • Mady Degner

    Wow, I think about all the times I’ve tried to make myself perfect, trying to break down Gods law so I can be excepted. But every time I hear the Gospel I am reminded that it’s been done for me. He already knows my future sins, yet I have free will. And that’s…quit a mystery. I must remind myself everyday to never forget the Gospel.

  • Chelsea Smith

    Starting a few days behind, but a friend of mine recommended this app to me yesterday. I’m looking forward to what it has to offer. I need the motivation and support of a community. This week and the week to come have been and will be trying on my faith and emotions.

  • Great way to start my day!!

  • Elizabeth Marie

    very grateful for a God that always forgives threw out all the sins I have faced. very excited for this amazing journey for the next few days to get closer to got. and get taught more of Gods word.

  • I love that Paul says in Timothy that Jesus will display his perfect patience in us. How thankful I am for a God who is merciful and always perfectly patient as I go about my life trying not to screw up too much.

  • So excited to be on this journey to be closer to God! As I need him in my life in every way!

    • Kim

      Lauren, I couldn’t have said it better! Looking forward to this time of revelation and change in Jesus Christ

  • day 1 of this devotional. Happy to be here this am reading this, I am in the beginning of recovery and luckily found this app to help me on this journey!

    • Danni Scruggs

      I started today too. I think it’s so beautiful that we have this option through technology. The thing that distracts me the most I can now use to glorify Jesus!

    • Amanda C

      Carissa I am in recovery as well, please do not hesitate to ask if you’d like to talk or pray together, or just anything. It’s a struggle but it’s so worth it…& you can do it!! Proud of you & praying for you! Xoxoxo

  • this will be good for me bc i have doubts whether he is real or not

    • Anna Whitener

  • Grace Baylis

    Super encouraged by this devotional and all the sisters doing it alongside me! I just love how there is always so much more to learn. Bring it on!

  • Mariah Clark

    I like this post. I’ve been meaning to get closer to God because I’ve been feeling down this isn’t the only reason but i know God is pulling me closer to him. This post taught me that I have purpose in gods eyes.

  • I love this post. I’ve been feeling spiritually dehydrated lately and I really just needed and wanted a new way to connect with God. So grateful to have found this.

  • Cassie Mihalczo

    Today was my first day with this app and I have to say that just after this first day I am already feeling so refreshed and well! I feel like I am doing a better job of connecting with the Lord. In today’s readings, I especially loved the scriptures from Timothy. I also excited to be going on this two week scripture journey!

  • This was such a beautiful read. I have been struggling a lot with my relationship with the Lord. I go to a Christian college and when I’m at school, the relationship is easy to maintain, but when I go home for re summer it’s like I put God on the back burner. I go back to my old life and the person that I was before. I know that God has changed my heart, but I can’t seem to stray away from old habits and to pursue him regularly. It’s like I choose people over Christ every time and don’t know how to change. I don’t want my relationship with Christ to be based on a place, I want it to go everywhere, and I want to finally be rid f these selfish desires… I find myself getting more frustrated all the time because I feel like God doesn’t hear me, or communicate with me. I’ve tried to read the Bible and it’s so overwhelming, I don’t know where to start…

    • Caitlyn

      I share that same struggle. Going home for breaks and for the summer. I dont have that same community around me, constantly pouring into me. Though as I found during the end of this past summer as I am at school now, that constantly praying and digging into Gods word everyday really kept me steady as I spent the remainder of my summer at home. Being very cognizant of my relationship with Christ and ALWAYS putting Him first. For me it became all about prioritizing my time at home. What you invest your time in is where your heart lies. And if you really really want your heart to lie with the Lord wherever/ whenever, at home and at school, you have to be intentional about staying in the word. Like I said, not having people around to pour into me all the time, I had to seek out God in ways I hadn’t before. I decided to do more daily devotionals, and I found out that the more you read, the more you want to read more. It also helped me a lot to FaceTime some of my friends from school that are fellow believers because they not only hold me accountable while I’m at home, but I can rest in knowing that they understand what I’m going through better than my friends at home that are non- believers. I hope this helps, just know that you aren’t the only one that struggles with this situation. Many many people do. I’ll be praying for you.

  • Katherine

    It’s so refreshing to be reminded of the gospel daily, no matter what. This post made me realize yet again how much God truly loves us, and how much grace we are given because of the sacrifice of Jesus. Thank you for always speaking truth everyday, you all are such a blessing.

  • Desiray Cruz

    I’ve been feeling broken always all my life I’ve been depressed and my anxiety seems to be worst. I’ve come to realize I really don’t love myself I feel like life is a struggle for me. I believe in God I have faith in Him but it seems to me though I say I do I feel like I’m failing in continuing my faith in him. I want to be the best daughter,girlfriend,big sister/little sister. But it is as if I live in a circle with times that I’ll pull myself out of the pit but then I throw myself back in. I don’t mean to listen to the negativity that is the devil I don’t do it on purpose but I always end up doing so. Now I feel lost and always full of fear.

    • Sarah

      Hey Desiray! I struggle with severe anxiety and an eating disorder. I know how hopeless it can feel during anxious times, especially when those around you might not understand what you’re experiencing. Everything you feel is valid, and Jesus knows you’re going to have rough days – when you do and you can’t find that positivity, rest assured that there will be better days. God always finds a way to bring light into any situation. On my bad days, I remind myself that I am loved, and I am here to love. I hope that brings you some peace.

  • Today was my first devotional with this app. I recently got in a car accident so I have to take a bus in the mornings to work now. It gives me some down time to study. It seems like my life is a constant struggle to fight the urge to live my life and to live more dependent on the Lord. I am a single mom and living in Las Vegas is lonely and hard. I just want to be the best for myself and my daughter.

    • SheReadsTruth

      Hi Lexy! So glad you are joining us! Praying for you as you read Truth today!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • Alexandra Sheard

    really been struggling (for a long time) with eating disorders and body image distortion. trying to really look to God for love and acceptance in the right place. been a Christian since I was a kid and I really want and need to grow stronger in my faith. I’m hoping these devotions will help me to do that!

    • Lexy

      I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling. I promise you that there is light in darkness. God loves us and sometimes when I don’t feel like I have any control in my life, remembering that we are unconditionally loved by God no matter what we have done brings me back to hope

    • Kalyssa

      I understand your struggle! I have fought with body image issues and eating disorders before as well. I have really had to rest in Gods grace and learn to see myself through his eyes and not the worlds. You were fearfully and wonderfully made in Gods image! Praying that God gives you strength through this trial! And that it ultimately can be used to bring him glory.

  • Been away from God for a long time. I’ve just been in such a stressful season and have just been surviving. I don’t exactly know what I believe anymore. If you feel led, say a prayer for me, that I’ll stick to this.

    • Hayley Lemmons

      I’m praying for you sister! You can never go so far that God can’t see you and reach you and gather you up in His arms again. He’s been been with you the whole time, even when it didn’t feel like it, and He’s rejoicing that you’re here now! I have faith that he’ll renew your spirit, in Jesus’ name.

    • Lexy

      Done! Prayer sent up!

  • Nichole Hazard

    Always an awesome reminder to know that “the jobs already been done” and I don’t have to prove myself to be anything but merely accept who I already am. I don’t mind being broken if it means the lord is the one who makes me whole. How can I not praise him every day for that?

  • I needed this. I have been a Christian for many years but I need to be renewed. This study has been great for me so far. Please pray for the renewing of God’s power in my life.

  • My prayer is that through this devotion I would find encouragement and that I would strengthen my faith & trust in God. I read in a devotion last night, my fear & anxiety has a seesaw affect when I trust in God. The more I trust, the higher Gods end of the seesaw goes and vice versa for the fear & anxiety. I thought that was a really neat way to look at it. Could someone pray for me this week? That I would have Gods peace in my heart as I’m about to go back to school, that I wouldn’t be afraid? Love you my sisters!

    • Anita

      I will be praying for you!

    • Kelly Engle

      I will be praying for you Lauren! I just moved back to school as well and can definitely relate. I’ll be praying that God provides you with peace and that your trust over powers your fears. Good luck going back!

  • “We are children looking through a fogged up window at the glory of new-fallen snow. We are wanderers lying in a field, staring up in darkness at a massive, star-filled sky. God is revealing Himself in everything, and whether or not we believe, the Truth remains true. We cannot fully understand it, but that does not make it less true. ” such a vivid thought. I am His child.

  • We often think there’s so much more we have to share with people. But really we need to share that there’s a God who loves them! This will be a great read!

    • Deon Wilkins

      This was such a great read tonight! Jesus came for hearts like you and I!

  • This is going to be a good one!!

  • Great morning read! Loved it!

  • Jen Hays

    This is good!

  • “The mystery of the Gospel does nothing to negate it’s truth … We cannot fully understand, but that does not make it less true”

    YES! Even when we do not understand He is all knowing and Truth is still Truth. Great reminder to start the day

  • Awesome! Great morning read

  • Jenifer Thomas

    Just like this devotional said, I am unbelievably broken– but I know that Jesus loves and accepts me and has a plan for my life. As long as I can trust in him, I have no fear. God is with me in my every step. Lord, let this be the peace that surrounds me as I go through my day.

  • My pray is as I rest in God I allow my true reflection come through. That I remember Him as my first love and seek him out daily

  • This app and the studies have been highly recommended by a few friends and I’m really looking forward to working through this one – the gospel is a great place to start! :)

  • Kia Perry

    I’m late getting started but I truly need the word that’s going to come from this plan. There’s been so much going on, people coming against me and ironically enough the scripture I read on the first day of this plan talks about LOVE. This one word answered a thousand questions. God has a funny sense of humor!

  • Chloe' Tilley

    So excited to begin this. I truly need some guidance in my life.

    • Aminah

      I’m excited too, we had a guest speaker yesterday at my church and he spoke to us about being in the wilderness and going around in circles not paying attention to God. I think this will help me get closer to him and understanding him.

  • I needed to read this today! I’m very excited to join the circle and read with other women while we grow closer to the Lord!

  • Sonja Hedstrom

    I’ve just had the most amazing month long experience in which I re-devoted my life to God and now I am back home and I am ready to continue this journey in growing closer with God and to hopefully shine his grace through my actions and I hope that this will help me :)

  • Excited to get involved with this. I’m in need of God’s direction in my life.

  • this is exactly what I need in my life right now. so excited to see a change in myself with y’all. God bless

    • Sonja Hedstrom

      I’m so excited that you are turning to God when you need help because it is so easy not to. I am so excited for this to help you and for you to grow closer to God! I’ll keep you in my prayers:)

  • My pastor has been preaching about obedience and how true obedience doesn’t come from a change of behavior but from a change of heart. I have been continually asking God to change my heart and cause me to desire him more. It gives me peace to know that the Gospel has already changed my dead heart, and is more than capable of continuing to mold and shape it. It’s an amazing reminder.

  • Kenia Lopez

    Just read this with my sister, and it’s just so beautiful what God does! I pray for you all as well as myself that God may help all of us to learn from these devotionals!

  • Looking forward to growing deeper into the things Christ.

  • Thai so going to be great! It’s awesome to know my other sisters in Christ are reading this devotional with me :) ❤️

  • Hannah Kaup

    I am so excited to start this devotion with you all! I’ve been following She Reads Truth on Instagram but I never realized there was a devotional app. What a brilliant idea!

  • Thank God for and God bless my sister in Christ, Erica. She introduced me to She Reads Truth by sharing a study on Hanna about a month or so ago. I’ve been hooked on She Reads Truth ever since. I bought the devotion “Women of the Old Testament” and am still working my way through it. This app is anointed by God! It’s the first devotion type app that I have fallen in love with and have been consistent in studying/following. Looking forward to going through “The Gospel Changes Everything!” Thanks for sharing the Word Erica! Love u!

  • This is soo good! Trying to stay on track with this study before the next one begins. I’ve been out of touch with God, my bible, and everything for a while. Glad to find this.

  • I am 14 and this touched me in maby different ways the bible is the truth and that’s it you don’t need to question god!

  • So blessed to have found this app! We could all use more Jesus time in our lives. Love it.

  • So I reset and am now trying my best to lead the right path this app definitely will help!

  • Maria Martinez

    I began my walk about a month ago and just came back from a mission trip. This is my first time actually reading the gospel daily and I’m excited to have it change my life even more. I am wanting tingly accept that even flaws and broken He loves me and accepts me. I want to feel worthy of his love and acceptance and make the next step of baptism.

  • Just got this app, really struggling and need encouragement and accountability with my daily bible study. Very thankful I found this.

  • Hi. I’m new to this. But I just feel like I want to share. My boyfriend and I are looking towards engagement (like actually think he might within the next week or two). I just found out he has been struggling on and off throughout our two years of dating with porn. This article is a reminder to me that we are both equally as broken. He knows what he has done is wrong and we went through all the steps to set up his phone and computer to block things like this. But still I feel hurt and insecure. Maybe this is because I let my security fall into his hands and not into the Lords. Anyone who can shed some advice or encouragement on this situation with the man that I am still called to marry and love unconditionally.

    • Alli Wood

      Hi Ashley. First of all, I just want to encourage you that you two are only dating. I understand completely if you have been dating for a long time, but know–he is not your husband. You are the Lord’s and you belong to no one outside of marriage except for him.
      With that said, looking at the prospect of marriage, DO give your future husband grace. As a wife of a man who has a very long past with porn, and to this very day, though he has grown immensely, still struggles with lust, I encourage you to know a couple of things.
      First. It is not your fault. In fact, it has nothing to do with you. Pornography is SIN, and it is because your boyfriend is a sinner that he has allowed himself to dive into it. You are beautiful. You are created by the Lord. You are the real thing. And you were made for good, God-glorifying sex inside of marriage. The Lord, in his mercy to you and your boyfriend has brought this sin into the light. It is a statement of his faithfulness to both of you individually, so that your boyfriend can begin to fight. It is a reflection of the Lord’s care for you. So rest in that. Don’t compare yourself to any woman or airbrushed magazine. The Lord sees you as valuable and beautiful because of Christ.
      Second. It may be a long hard struggle. PRAY for your boyfriend. Pray big things, pray little victories for your boyfriend, but above all, be consistent in praying for him. Pray that he would have men that come into his life who love Jesus, who have struggled against porn, and who can walk beside him in the struggle. The Lord will show you how much He works.
      And finally. Remember that Christ has died for the struggle. He has died for your boyfriend’s fight against pornography. Ask the Lord for your own heart to be gracious and understanding.
      I pray that you would see how faithful the Lord is within this struggle.

    • Brianna Allison

      Hey Ashley! Are you familiar with Jefferson Bethke? Him and his wife Alyssa just did an incredible vlog discussing the issue of dating someone addicted to porn. One thing they discuss is the idea of shedding light on it and doing things to stay accountable to not watching it. I think it would be very relevant for you if you did decide to watch it. You can find it on his YouTube/Facebook page!

    • Shelby

      Hey Ashley, I’ve been there. I knew my husband had struggled with it before and some during our dating relationship. But a couple weeks before our wedding he let me know he has slipped up one night and fallen back into it. I was crushed. I wept, I mean really wept. But I knew God had given him and all his flaws to me. Fast forward a couple after a couple years of marriage and it came out that he had again slipped up. I felt even more hurt than before, but this time I wanted healing for both of us. We talked in detail about the mistakes me made, the things he thought, how I felt. We put better accountability in place. We talk weekly about how he is doing, because this is something that creeps up slowly, not all at once. Being open about it all has brought an incredible amount of healing that I feel like we didn’t get the first time. I should also mention, while this was an addiction when he was a teenager, it’s not anymore. It’s a hang up that he still deals with but with god’s help has control over. If he was actively still dealing with breaking the addiction, it may not have been the right time for us to get married. But he was repentant, willing to change and open about his mistakes. I hope that helps. I’ve been there, it was painful but God used it to strengths us individually and as a couple. We really hope to be able to help other couples with similar struggles as we continue to find healing in Christ.

  • Grace Collins

    I am just about to move to college and this is first time moving! I have been feeling so many emotions lately and this study really calmed my heart! That no matter what happens I am in his hands and it will all work for good!!

    • Sasha Mullenbach

      Just pray God will calm your nerves.

    • Jenni

      Grace! You are going to LOVE college!! You may be a bit homesick at first, but continue to push through! It’s worth it! Get involved quickly with a campus ministry (like Cru, RUF, InterVarsity, Chi Alpha, BCM etc) and a local church! Keep your eyes focused on the Lord and you will grow so much!! College will be great for you if you make friendships with other strong believers to encourage each other and keep each other accountable! Xoxo

  • I just found this app and I love it!!! I have been looking for a study and I believe God placed this app on my heart:)) very excited to know God better!!!:)))))

  • Really needed to hear this today. Was feeling broken, but this reminded me that no matter how irreparably broken I feel, My Father has a plan for me and a plan to make me whole in his love.

  • Ashley Whitley

    first study in a long time, glad I chose this one

  • Just found this app! So excited.

  • My first study on the app… Really loving the connection with other believers! I pray my life will become centered on God.

  • Kelly Frostick

    Excited to start this, would love encouragement in learning to not doubt, and embracing the mysteries of God instead of holding Him accountable for them.

    • Magz Butters

      Yes ma’am!

      • Val

        I think we all need that! I have been struggling with doubt and faith lately. He promises if we seekHim we will find Him and He will not leave us. I pray that each of us run after Him as a child runs to her Daddy.

  • Katey Porter

    I just found this app this morning through a friend and I am already in love! The Lord has been working through me lately and I’ve become closer to Him than ever before! So excited to go through this plan! Thank you God for everything, everyday!

  • Chelsea Cook

    This is my first study with SRT! I am starting a few days behind because of vacation but hoping to catch up tonight! I’m interested to see how it all works and hopefully will continue to use SRT to grow in my relationship with Christ!

  • This is my first study on here, excited to see what God will reveal through it!!! Thank You, Father for always being faithful

  • Loved thism! Very encouraging

  • Excited for this devotional. I like these comments at the end! To God be the glory!

  • Rachel DiSalvatore

    incredible!!! thanks for the free plan

  • Encouraging read & I love spending time in his word! God is great!

  • There is SO much love and support among everyone, that this walk with God will be surrounded by love and encouragement. I’m really looking forward to this journey with you awesome women!

  • Just found this app. So excited to read through and celebrate Jesus with you ladies!

    • Taylor

      This is my first study on here! I’m excited to read through this too :)

  • Jennifer Walser

    Exciting!!

  • Are these the same readings we’d get if we downloaded the reading

    plan on the app?

  • A friend recommended. Very encouraging

  • Bind me up Jesus! I need your healing and grace

  • Emma Louise

    It’s amazing how someone like me, a long time (granted, on and off) Christian can still find life and hope reading this.

  • With this plan, I just started reading and studying the Bible for the first time in years, I feel like this is one of the best decisions I have made in a really long time. Can’t wait to see what God has in store for me through His Word

    • Abigail

      That’s awesome to hear! I’m also struggling to keep in touch with God, I hope we both come close to Him!

  • While we don’t understand, it still holds true. The Word is the one true constant. The same yesterday, today, and forever.

  • Cristy Marshall

    This certainly resonated with me this morning :We are children looking through a fogged up window at the glory of new-fallen snow. We are wanderers lying in a field, staring up in darkness at a massive, star-filled sky. God is revealing Himself in everything, and whether or not we believe, the Truth remains true. We cannot fully understand it, but that does not make it less true.

    • Lauren B.

      I agree, Cristy! The image this conjures is comforting and truly makes me think of the enormity of God’s presence in our lives (whether we acknowledge it or not).

  • 1 Corinthians 1:8 is a great reminder that to us the word of God is salvation, but to those who haven’t heard or believed it’s foolishness. I’ve been struggling with sharing the gospel to my friends. Lately, I’ve been letting my old self take over and be deceived by looking at the word of God from the perspective of the lost. There I am discouraged, and there I have committed sin. This verse, that this is the power of God, reminds me that I am no longer that old self but instead I am continuously being transformed by the renewing of my mind in Christ. I am no longer myself but Christ in me. There is no fear in sharing because Jesus Christ is the one working in and through me. I really appreciate the devotional. I’m excited to start this series.

  • It’s been awhile since I last read the Word. Was going to push it off tonight as well but got myself to read some scripture. I tend to forget how lost I am without Him. This reading helped to remind me.

  • Lindsey Forrest

    I have known of this app for a while now, but my first time to actually get involved. I have been struggling with anxiety a lot lately. I am hoping this study will speak to my heart and help me REALLY connect and feel the Gospel like never before. I have been a believer since as long as I can remember, but I am at the point in my life where I really need some change. I am ready to fully give my heart to the Lord. I am very excited to see where this study takes me and to be studying with you all.

    • Kim

      Praying for you! I am all too familiar with anxiety. I cannot imagine navigating it without Jesus and the word.

  • Mackenzie

    I am new to this app as well. I have a problem with anxiety. Getting to know the gospel, I am hoping I can leave all in Gods hands and be confident in his plan for my life. Very thankful to be studying with you all.

    • Chelsea Buchanan

      Great post Mackenzie. I have strayed from the gospel and am too getting to know it

  • Kati Sanders

    1 Corinthians 13:12-13 really spoke to me. I’ve never come across these scripture in study & I know it was meant to be! Thankful to have found this study!

  • 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

    This scripture has been so encouraging lately as I’ve wondered about God’s purpose in a few life situations. God’s Word is so important to be in everyday! Thank you SRT – thanks for helping keep my heart and mind anchored in truth, life application and the lovely pictures each day!

  • I loved reading the verse in 1Timothy that I received mercy just so Jesus could display His perfect patience to others who will believe in Him for eternal life. Just as He is patient to me, He will do the same for others not because any of us is deserving, but because God is merciful toward us.

  • Katherine

    I’ve been feeling dry spiritually for a while but lately I’ve had a hard time even having quiet time because I feel no direction or hunger for the Word. Hoping this study will take me back to the basics of my faith again and re-create a hunger for Jesus. Thanks SRT ❤️

  • I’ve only recently begun studying the Bible. before, I’ve only dabbled around, looking up scriptures for various situations I have found my life in. But to be able to independently settle down and really delve into the Word the way that I have always longed to, but never quite known how?
    it makes my heart nearly leap from my chest. God makes me feel so free.

    • Maddy

      Amen sister! I’m in the same boat and love how much God can make my heart grow fonder by just simply diving in!

  • Do you know…

    You were designed on purpose, with intention, love, and care.

    You are broken—tragically broken—but the One who made you can also bind you up and make you whole.

    You have hope—real hope for the next moment and season, for a lifetime and forever.

    Absolutely love that part. My family has fallen upon hard times recently, but thru our faith in & love for our Heavenly Father he has made sure we have all we need & have been taken care of. We’ve been broken, but we are hopeful because of Him ❤️

  • “But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.” Dearest Lord Jesus! Hear our prayer to hold this deeply in hearts. Amen.

  • So excited for this ladies!

  • Stacy Rutherford

    Read this first thing upon waking up, and it has given me hope for the day. Praying we all find space in our hearts for God to move us and change us.

  • I love the gospel of Jesus Christ, and would love to use this for my women's group.

  • Erika Porter

    I found SRT in Instagram over the weekend. There’s nothing like God’s timing. Just in time for The Gospel Changes Everything and boy does it!
    Day 1 was a word I needed. Looking forward to walking through the rest of it and sharing SRT with my girlfriends!
    Thank You SRT!

  • Kasey Summers

    So excited the begin this study!! The gospel really does change everything!!! Praying the gospel would be more real to all of us then it has ever been before!!!

  • Brittney Previe

    I’m excited for this! Looks amazing. Plus I really need it. I fell away from Christs love
