31 Days of Scripture Challenge

A couple of days ago I threw out the idea on instagram and Facebook asking who would be interested in participating in a 31 day Scripture challenge in the month of May. I got a ton of response, and I am so excited to start the challenge next week. I would love if you would join in the challenge as well. There is something amazing about community seeking the Lord together.

The Challenge:

  • Read scripture every day in the month of May.
  • Share a photo on instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #lampandlight so that we can encourage each other on the journey and inspire others to make Scripture a priority.

How to get ready:

  • Decide what you are going to read. I recommend choosing a book of the Bible and starting at the beginning, but if you are already in a reading plan or going through a study you don’t need to choose something else.
  • Prepare your heart. Ask God to encourage your heart throughout the month of May, and instill in you a love and desire for God’s Word.
  • Ask a friend to join you. I will be here to cheer you on, and will be checking out the hashtag often, but it would be great to ask a friend or a few to try to commit with you so that you can encourage each other.
  • If you aren’t sure how to study Scripture, you can read this post about how I do it.
  • Share the image below on Facebook or instagram and ask friends to join in.
  • You can also share it on Pinterest using the Pinterest button at the bottom of the post.scripturechallenge

I am so excited to see old and new friends participate in this challenge, because I know that Scripture is powerful. We have a few days until the challenge starts officially, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start today. Let me know if you have any questions by leaving a comment here or on instagram, or by using the contact page above to send me an email.

Kristin, thanks so much for including us in this challenge. I do read scripture daily for different bible studies and just because I love to read it. Not sure if I will use this challenge for my bible studies or maybe pick a new chapter new to me and dive in.
This image is beautiful by the way!

I am excited to participate in the May challenge. Moved to GA almost16 months ago after remarrying. Havent found the home church yet that we feel God is leading us too but have been praying for Gods leading. Hoping this study will help me remain focused so I can hear Gods calling.

Happy May Day! So thankful for you and Val’s challenges to spend more time in prayer and scripture! I am digging deeper into Proverbs this month. I like to re-read it every now and then on the months with 31 days. I am thankful for your encouragement and example! I pray you are blessed through your time in scripture and prayer!
