I subscribe to newsletters from Well-Watered Women.
The company name first caught my eye because I’ve had a theme going with water and wells (and sowing).
I began to read their monthly emails which included a list of everyone’s favorite worship songs. 🎶💗 Eventually, I also purchased one of the bible studies.
Note: This isn’t a paid advertisement and they do not even know me. ☺️ However, I have many young and old(er) friends out there who are looking for something.
The latest Well-Watered Women email could very well be the start of something new.
This post was the only way to invite everyone and anyone to prayerfully consider joining me on this special journey into 2020.
There are SO many “challenges” for the new year.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you line up five Bible studies, multiple mentoring commitments, a new diet, exercise app and rearrange your whole house.
Not that I’ve ever done that. 😂
Today, I shared one particular “challenge” with my daughters and some of their friends, and that’s when I realized I didn’t want anyone left out of this opportunity.
Side note: Part of me would like it to be thirty-one days instead of thirty, but that’s not important.
(See, I am releasing control already!)
Here’s what IS important:
As women, no matter the age or life stage, we should daily be in the Word of God and before His throne in prayer.
We might coast along while not doing this, but I can assure you – you’re missing out.
You probably sense this.
There’s a feeling that something isn’t right, a hole that nothing fills, but you haven’t been able to identify it, or maybe admit it what it could be.
I’ve knowingly lived both lives (with and without Jesus) and there’s nothing that compares to walking with the Lord.
- You will literally see the world in a different way…through Spirit eyes.
- You find your thoughts changing, aligning more with your Heavenly Father than your old nature.
- You experience this peace…the kind that surpasses all understanding. It’s crazy how wonderful it feels! Why would we ever want to live without it?
Even better, you begin to understand the bible. The words captivate you as the Spirit teaches, as you you surrender and the stories come alive.
Beware. The world offers a lot of distractions and pleasures that so many people are choosing over the Word.
This could be something as innocent as a television or a phone.
I am challenging us today to stop drinking from broken cisterns.
Dig deep in His Word and discover the Living Water.
Seek wisdom, grow in spiritual maturity, develop a hunger and thirst for the Word… before world.
You will never be the same.
What happens after 30 days?
If you commit to this challenge and follow through, then I’m believing and praying that you will want more of God’s Word.
Here is a one-year plan to read the bible through in chronological order. It only takes 15-20 minutes a day.
You might even want to start this at the same time as the 30-day challenge. I’ll be right there with you.
If this challenge isn’t for you, then here’s another option from reviveourhearts.com.
Search for one that is right for your walk with the Lord! 💗
I’ve also used a one-year, printed bible (available at any bookstore or Amazon). This kind is convenient because each daily reading is already divided out by date, and it includes passages from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs.

No representation is made that the quality of this bible reading plan is greater than the quality of other plans.

Your statutes are wonderful;￼ therefore I obey them.￼
￼The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:129-130
