His Encouragement #76

Posted January 2, 2020 by thebeccafiles in / 6 Comments


Happy Thursday!

I am blessed to be a part of a group of bloggers who love God’s Word and want to share it with others. Our hope is that you would not only be blessed through Biblical encouragement, but challenged and fed in your personal walk with Christ <3

Happy New Year!

Last year I had decided to share a verse that I wanted to focus on for 2019. It was:

He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

~Psalm 91:4

In many ways this past year I found myself being brought back to this verse for comfort and peace. Although I’ve said that 2019 was an amazing year for me, I would be lying if I didn’t admit that there were also some tough spots. Through it all though I felt the Lord’s presence with his arms open wide to embrace me when I sought Him. It’s amazing what removing our eyes from our circumstances and fixing them on our Heavenly Father can do <3

For 2020 I’ve decided once again to pick a verse for the year.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

~Proverbs 3:5-6

I realize that this is a common favorite, but without going into too much detail there are some things in my life right now that I could really use some direction from the Lord in and I want to make sure that I am looking to Him and His will and not my own.

On another note, I don’t know what your goals are for reading your Bible this year, but I’m excited to be joining author Mesu Andrews and several others in a plan to read through the Bible in a year. The plan is all organized using the YouVersion app and includes some extra content from The Bible Project. I’m really looking forward to it and wanted to share the link with you in case you’re interested in joining too 🙂81169370_2609845005719358_4092959414812672000_n

  1. That is Caitlin’s favorite verse!! Well, verses technically. I love it to, but I don’t want to steal it from her 🙂 BUT it is something I need to focus on this year. Thank you for the reminder friend. I’m here if you ever want to pray together, or just talk.

    I’m doing that reading plan too! I’m so excited to be reading through the bible again and talking about it along the way with other believers!!!
