Reflections on the First Day

Yesterday more than 400 of you joined in for the first day of the #lampandlight May Scripture challenge, and shared photos on instagram and Facebook. What a blessing it was to see my news feed flooded with pictures of open Bibles. My heart was encouraged as I read what God was teaching you all, and some of you posted things that my own heart needed to hear yesterday.

Last night I was thinking about how many of you shared Scripture yesterday. Over 400 is a lot of people sharing Scripture, but then I started thinking about how many people saw what was posted. How many feeds did those pictures show up in? How many hurting hearts read words of comfort? How many seeking hearts saw Jesus?

This challenge is all about getting in God’s Word, and making Scripture a priority in our lives. It is about making habits that make us more like Christ. It is also about comforting those that are hurting, and being lights in this world.

If you haven’t started the challenge, don’t feel like you are behind, just join right in. I know that if you spend a month in Scripture that it will change you, and it just might change someone else too.

If you want to learn more about the challenge, you can read about it here.


For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

I am so glad you issued this challenge Kristin. I was originally going to do another study for the month of May going through a book on writing & creativity. But when I sat down to study a verse that’s been on my mind this week, I found the Lord calling me to obedience. To only do those things which He has asked of me. And although I’m sure that other study would have been great, it wasn’t something He had asked me to do. I was trying to do it in my own strength. And because I believe my writing comes only from Him, going ahead with that study, mustering my way through, would be a mistake. But this challenge is something I definitely feel Him calling me to. So I will be doing a deep study on obedience this month. Thank you for the encouragement you bring. I’m looking forward to seeing where He takes us this month!

I’m so excited about this. I’ve needed a challenge and a form of accountability to get me going!

May God be glorified!!
