It’s time for turkey, colorful leaves, sweaters, and Thanksgiving.

James 2:13 says mercy triumphs judgment. Mercy is the entire message of the cross. God’s grace poured out over every person He ever created.
Grace says it won’t look at your behaviors. It won’t look at what you’ve done or should have done. It won’t carry a list of rules and check off the ones you’ve followed and the ones you haven’t. Grace looks beyond rules, right, and wrong and instead offers love, forgiveness, and acceptance.
God’s Word is full of rules and commands, and they are good. They are necessary and when followed they offer a protection against many trials.
But we are not perfect, and rules we break. Often. But with God nothing is helpless or hopeless. To Him, and through Him, everything can be restored and made right again. His solution is grace. Grace allows restoration to be made, and second chances can begin.
When we realize this hope – this chance at a new beginning – we start feeling grateful. So thankful that our future does not depend on our past, but can move forward with grace.
This November, let the Word of God soak into your mind, heart, and soul. Allow your heart to change and transform. Receive grace, give grace, walk in gratitude.
How to Use your Scripture Writing Plan:
- Write out the scripture of the day in your journal.
- Write out your thoughts, events/memories, and prayers for that day under the scripture.
- Reflect on the scripture of the day as you go about your daily tasks and activities.
- Join us on Wednesdays as we share a devotional covering the scriptures studied for that week.
Today is November 1st, so you will start on #1 scripture today – 2 Corinthians 8:-9. Follow the plan for each day.
We will join you on Sundays with a reminder of what scriptures to write out for that week, and a devotional on Wednesdays to keep you motivated.
Enjoy your quiet time in God’s Word!
