I was busy this week preparing my monthly Worthy Words email newsletter—landing in subscriber inboxes on Saturday—so I didn’t have time to write a new post. Instead, I’m treating you to another curated list of worthy words by others.
Do you like these Worthy Words curation posts? I’d love to hear what you like/don’t like in the comments!
Bible Reading, Bible Study & Personal Devotions
GET INTO GOD’S WORD | MIKE ADAMS
Bible engagement for those who struggle to read: “I was told that reading the Bible was like food and prayer was like breathing… but there was a problem. I’m not a good reader… So how do I and others like me get the Bible into our minds, hearts and spirits?”
THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD | BARBARA LEE HARPER
Clandestine trips behind the “Iron Curtain” to smuggle Bibles, courageous underground churches, and the power of God’s Word—a fascinating read!
“Instead of letting the Word refresh and reframe my mind and heart, reading that quickly made me feel like I was rushing through the Word just to be able to check off a box on my to-do list.” If you like this post, you might be encouraged by Giving Up My Bible Reading Plan Helped Me Delight in God’s Word.
“Have you ever felt frustrated by your personal Bible study time, wondering how to reconcile obscure and unfamiliar old Testament passages with your modern-day life and needs? Shannon Leibold gives three examples of how we can glimpse details about God’s character and purposes on every page. You may never look at the Scriptures the same way again.”
On Writing For God’s Glory
IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO BE A WRITER | LARA D’ENTREMONT
“Though writing in itself is often a solitary work, it shouldn’t be done in isolation. As writers, we need a team of people to sharpen, encourage, carry, and guide us… But who are these people? How do we find them?”
THE PURPOSEFUL PEN PODCAST | AMY LYNN SIMON
I’ve learned a lot from Amy over the past year. Check out her podcast “if you struggle to understand how to use your writing to glorify God and serve others”.
THE PLATFORM PROBLEM | PIERCE TAYLOR HIBBS
“At the end of my life, I want to know that I’ve been faithful, not famous. And so my call for fellow little writers is simple: write earnestly, write beautifully, and write with enchanted passion for Christ… You’re not in control of your platform, and that’s a good thing.”
