Writing the Word – Proverbs
Hey yall! Happy May!
So far in this year alone, we have had the opportunity to write the entire Sermon on the Mount (Jesus’ longest recorded teaching), the Psalms of Ascent, and the entire book of Ephesians! Not bad just four full months into this year!
This month we will be writing out of the book of Proverbs! YALL – I have loved putting this schedule together, and I really think you’re going to love writing Proverbs this month! As we write a passage from each chapter of Proverbs, I would like to encourage you to read the chapter we are writing in that day, then write the passage assigned. It won’t take you long to read the chapter, and it will provide the proper context for the passage we will be writing #worthit. After that, don’t forget to really dwell on what you wrote that day. Keep it in your mind as you go about your day and ask the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart about what His Word says. I pray that we will enjoy the adventure of walking with God and that we will allow ourselves to be fully immersed in Him and His Word this month!
This month we are writing the very words of Jesus. I hope that excites your soul in a way nothing else can. The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus’ longest recorded teaching spanning 3 chapters and over 100 verses. Jesus teaches us how to live as Kingdom-minded people, how to love, and how to live for His glory. This is going to be an incredible month.
Thank you for writing along with us! We cannot tell you how honored we are to be on this journey with you.
March Writing the Word: Psalms of Ascent
It’s time for our March writing the Word! First off, I want to say congrats to those who wrote the book of Ephesians with us these past two months! It was an amazing journey of writing. The start of each month is super exciting for us over here on The Porch and I am especially excited about our theme this month – we are writing the Psalms of Ascent!
The Psalms of Ascent (Psalm 120-134) were sung by worshippers of God as they journeyed together to Jerusalem for their annual feasts and celebrations. These Psalms are steeped in history and meaning, yet they are still practical for us today. I love what Beth Moore says of these Psalms, “Just as a song or poem can express feelings of fear, doubt, hope, and joy, these 15 psalms model how we can voice our own petitions and praises to our God, who is always available and ready to hear us.” I can think of no better time to write these Psalms than now, the month leading right to Easter!
The Pineapple Porch’s Christmas Writing Scripture 2017 | Writing the Word
It’s the most wonderful time of the year (#itreallyis #ilovechristmas)! I am so excited for this month’s Christmas Writing Scripture I can barely stand it! There are so many beautiful, beautiful things we will discover as we write the Word this month. Although you may have heard and read the Christmas story many times before, I pray we will be struck by the wonder, grace, and miracle of the birth of Christ afresh. Let’s pray that He reveals things in His Word we have never noticed before and that at the end of this month, we will be deeply changed because in this season we dwelled with our Savior, Jesus.
Although this is the busiest time of year for most of us, let’s also make a point to remember Jesus and commit our time to writing out the account of His birth. We owe it all to Him, yet He keeps giving. I know there will be so many gifts to receive as we abide in His Word this month!
Let every heart prepare Him room. Glory to God in the Highest!
