December Recap: My Daily Briefing

Hey there, friends!

2020 has come to a close. As I look back over this year I feel a great deal of sorrow, but not without exceeding joy– for there also has been so much good that has come from this year. I pray that you have experienced the same.

Even with sorrow over the recent passing of my Mother on December 20th, I can look on 2020 with joy because of the assurance of eternal life in Jesus Christ. Our hope is not found in this world, but in the one to come. My mother knew Jesus well and while she is Safely Home, I welcome your prayers as my family gathers this week.

And now, here we are at the dawn of 2021… a brand new year. Oh that it may be a year where we come to know Him better! “Let’s press on together to know Him; He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring” (Hosea 6:3).

If you joined us for the #100DaysWithJesus reading plan in 2020, I hope you’ve created a life-long habit of pressing in to Jesus by reading and loving God’s Word.

And, if you’re ready for more, join me in January for My Daily Briefing as we read through the Bible in 2021!

Do you ever wish the Bible read like a novel? Or wish you could understand the whole story of Bible? If so, I’m so excited to tell you about My Daily Briefing written by my friend, Gwen Diaz.

Gwen and her husband, Ed, have been friends with John and me for many, many years. They have a long history of Bible work and research, including co-founding Walk Thru the Bible Ministries, working with Search Ministries, and joining the writing team for the Daily Walk Bible. Most recently, Ed and Gwen have founded 71:17 Ministries based on Psalm 71:17-18, and have made the next generation the focus of their outreach.

My Daily Briefing is a daily devotional sent to your email that consists of 365 lessons starting in Genesis and chronologically tells the story of the entire Bible. Each event is re-told in modern language and includes its historical and cultural context. Gwen’s personal applications at the end of each lesson aim to help you engage even deeper with what you’re reading.

The devotionals can be read on a daily basis; or enjoyed as one continuous narrative. Click here to subscribe to the daily devotions!

I love y’all dearly, and don’t you forget that you are greatly and dearly loved by The King!
