This verse is one that I have been reciting again and again this week (go ahead, memorize it! right now!), thanks to #SheReadsTruth. #SheReadsTruth is a daily devotional for women that I learned about a few months ago at The Influence Conference. We just finished a plan called "Fresh Start" for the new year, and it focused on how God redeemed all SORTS of people to put them on His path. One day specifically showed how God used Moses to save the Israelites, which made me want to watch The Prince of Egypt like crazy! (Our family was slightly obsessed with When You Believe growing up.) "The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still" is something Moses says to the terrified Israelites, who know the Egyptians are coming after them in Exodus 14. I won't tell you what happens next if you're unfamiliar with the story, but know that this is where things get REALLY good and Moses's encouragement is proven to be true.
If you're looking for a devotional, I love a couple of things about #SheReadsTruth, the first being that it is available through the YouVersion app on my phone. I know, I know, you don't need an iphone to do a devotional, BUT #SheReadsTruth encourages you to take a picture and instagram/tweet what you learned from the devotional and corresponding scripture, so makes it a visual AND an experience I can share with other people. I think this is an awesome way to share the Word, so I'm all about it! I also enjoy how the devotional are written in a down-to-earth style, and I like that I have it everywhere I take my phone...which is admittedly everywhere, so there's no reason not to check in with the daily reading! While I don't instagram or tweet my daily thoughts often and need to work on being a little braver in this aspect, I have loved the themes of the last few plans including Advent and the Fresh Start I mentioned earlier.
So ladies of all ages, if you've been looking for a way to add a little more reflection to your day, check out #SheReadsTruth. You do not have to have a smartphone to read the plan---you can visit the site daily to see what the readings are or sign up to have them delivered to your inbox. A new plan called "Soul Detox" just started and it's never too late to join in.
