One Year Ago {giveaways}

One year ago today, I began an experiment.

Plan: Convert my Scripture-study love into words so that others become infected with joy.
Step 1: Create a blog.
Step 2: Post twice a week.
Result: If people read it, maybe they’ll be encouraged and equipped to saturate themselves with Scripture.
If people don’t read it, I’ll still learn a crazy lot by simply expressing what God, through his holy and amazing Word, is teaching me. {Time not wasted.}

An amateur blog and over 100 posts later, and I pray I’ve reached my goal in some small way. And so a celebration is in order.

But first, allow me to thank you, my readers. Many of you have offered such kind words of encouragement, have bravely contributed to my crazy discussions, and have graciously shared my posts. Thank you, thank you! Your response tells me that this site might be making a small difference, and that’s my prayer.

Yes, one year in, I am continually amazed by who God is and by the Word he has given, and I am beyond grateful to have acquired a small writing space in this vast, overwhelming thing called the “internet” to tell about it.

Heading into year two, I have new goals and plans of action, and there are some changes in store. {Not to mention a new look for the site – my second amateur attempt. How do you like it?} I pray JourneyoftheWord continues to lift you up and to empower you to search diligently, to walk faithfully, and to revel in the joy.

Now, to celebrate, I’m gonna try this new-fangled thing called “giveaways.” Because my dear readers need more fun Scripture-study stuff, yes?

  1. I didn’t get in on your full year, but have certainly enjoyed the time I have. I still think you need to compile them and publish them.


  2. I was re-reading your early posts and can identify with growing up around scripture and feeling like I know it well but needing to find the joy in the reading of it.
