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.


Waiting for a Breakthrough

Waiting for a breakthrough (in a marriage, a friend’s life, church, family, or work) can feel like a long, dark, hopeless pit. 

But man oh man, does our God move mountains! He stuns us with change we never thought possible, blowing us away.

When the breakthrough finally comes, take time to celebrate it!!

That’s what we’re doing today with this Scripture meditation through Psalm 6. Check it out below. 

Psalm 6:8–10

8 Away from me, all you who do evil,

    for the Lord has heard my weeping.

9 The Lord has heard my cry for mercy;

    the Lord accepts my prayer.

10 All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish;

    they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.
