Day 1

from the Day 1 reading plan

Proverbs 4:1-7

BY She Reads Truth

Good morning gorgeous gals!
Don’t look around to see who I am talking to–I’m talking to you.  You are beautifully and wonderfully made.  Don’t forget that, okay?

Kacia here, and I just have to say: we couldn’t be more excited to begin a new plan with you today!  After praying about which plan would follow Fresh Start, we kept coming back to Soul Detox.  We trust that God is going to speak to each of us individually and together as a community–whether you’ve participated in this plan already, or beginning for the first time!

As Raechel mentioned yesterday, these next 5 weeks will look a little bit different, because the devotional content won’t be available here at SheReadsTruth, but the community isn’t going anywhere.  Even though the devotional reading will take place on You Version, come join the discussion taking place over here!  Be a part of the community–you have a voice, and we want to hear your heart.  We’ve been praying that this plan would build upon the truth we just soaked in for the past 19 days: beloved, He is giving you a fresh start.

It is a gift.  It is grace.  And over the next 5 weeks, we will allow Him to remove the layers of build-up that we’ve ignored for too long.  We are humbled and honored to study His word together with you. 

Join us for Day 1 of Soul Detox and then join us for discussion and community in the comments below!

Today we also have a special introduction from the author of Soul Detox
and Senior Pastor of, Craig Groeschel.  You can also utilize the 4-week Soul Detox sermon series, available here.

from Craig:

If you’re anything like me, you may find yourself occasionally evaluating your life.  Do I work hard enough or too much? Where do I stand in my walk with God? Am I following after God with everything in me or am I just playing the game? Is there anything within me that needs to be changed or made new? Like David laments in Psalms, I long for a pure heart and a closeness to God. I hope you long for that too.

But it’s hard to be close to God when there’s sin in our lives. Maybe you don’t want to call it sin. How about junk? Filth? Toxins? Maybe what we really need is a spiritual de-tox. The Bible consistently reminds us to check our spiritual diet for toxins. Proverbs 25:26 says, “Like a muddied spring or polluted well are the righteous who give way to the wicked.” How muddy is your water right now? Is your well polluted by all the cultural toxins seeping in? Do you have toxic thoughts, behaviors or emotions? Are you hanging with the wrong crowd or listening to or watching impure entertainment?
It’s time to come clean.
If you’re tired of the stain of sinful habits discoloring your life, if you long to breathe the fresh, clean, life-giving air of God’s holiness, if you would love to detoxify your soul from guilt, fear, regret, and all the impurities that pollute your relationship with God, then this reading plan is for you.

    I am so excited to do this study! I started with she reads truth on the second study, so I missed this one. I tried doing both, and couldn't focus, so I am so glad you're doing this one again. I have a tendency to look for the worst in everything, something God has been working on me since just before the new year. Well, probably my whole life, but it's been more the past month.
