Knowing how to get started reading the Bible can be tricky. But don’t get discouraged! No matter how far you’ve come in your faith, everyone has struggled with reading the Bible at some point. That’s why we put together some Scripture meditations like this one to help you get started.


I’ll Tell My Story

Can we get a praise report 🙌?!

Throughout the Old Testament, and especially in the Psalms, God asks his people to remember what he’s brought them through and what he’s done for them. Remembrance and gratitude are important practices in Christian life, but it doesn’t stop there. We’re also called to share that remembrance with others and testify to the goodness of God in our lives.

We’d love to hear how God is working in your life, answering prayers, showing up for you, and covering you in love and grace. Find someone in your life you can share with or send a message filled with stories of rescue and redemption, giving glory and thanksgiving to God to!

Psalm 107:1-3

1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story— those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, 3 from east and west, from north and south.
