Summer Pursuit Charts!!!

We are so thrilled to have received so many of charts from those of you from around the country - and world - who have spent the summer seeking Jesus through the Summer Devotions Pursuit 2013!!!

Your rewards are in the mail and should be arriving in the days to come! 

Here are a few of your encouraging testimonies from doing the Summer Devotions Pursuit:

The Lord did so many things in my heart this summer and they have changed my life... ~ Alyssa, NH

I am glad I did Summer Pursuit this year.  I am working on going through the whole Bible and trying to make Bible reading a daily thing to do.  Thank you so much for helping me read my Bible more often. ~ Meagan, Alberta, Canada

This challenge was amazing!  I didn't think reading my Bible and praying for 15 minutes would do much.  I am surprised at how much it changed me!  I feel so much closer to God than I thought I could be.  I would encourage everyone to do this challenge. ~ Megan, OR

My faith and trust in Jesus has increased... ~ Emmalee, MI

I have had a great summer getting to know the Lord better!  You see, my family and I were moving this summer and reading God's Word really carried me through...  I have learned so much this summer and have grown closer to God.  Thanks for a wonderful summer!  Kristiana, CA

It has been very encouraging to me! ~ Rachael, KS

Seeking the Lord this summer with my siblings and friends was a treasure. ~ Sarah, KS

This has helped me to talk to the Lord more during the day. ~ Ireland, MN

Doing the Summer Pursuit was a real challenge for me.  But I needed it.  I'd been slacking off when it came to personal devotions with the Lord, and this is just what I needed to get me back on track. ~ Rachel, IN

It has been such a blessing to come to conferences and to do this Summer Pursuit.  Recently, my grandpa passed away and doing this Summer Pursuit was so helpful. ~ Eliza, MN

I really enjoyed participating in Summer Pursuit again this year.  It was a good motivator to soak up God's Word every day.  Some days it was hard to make time, but by His grace I tried to remain faithful.  I plan to continue daily devotions all year ... ~ Natalie, Alberta, Canada

This year the Lord showed me how simple it was to think on Him in a more day to day, moment to moment way.  It's so easy to let my mind wander, but this summer He had more ready entry to my thoughts. ~ Kendra, KS

This was my first year doing it…  When I first started doing my Bible reading, it was more like I had to read my Bible for 15 minutes than wanted to.  But now, after 3 months of doing it, I know that when the pursuit is over, I will continue spending time with the Lord each day! ~ Grace, MI

My faith was strengthened in Christ… ~ Hannah, TX

This Summer Pursuit Challenge has been such a blessing in my life and has helped me make my time with the Lord top priority.  There is so much joy in spending time with Him!  ~ Kaitlyn, MO

May the Lord bless you as you continue to seek Him!!!  He is worth seeking with all that you are and has amazing things in store as you do!

"And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him."
  Hebrews 11:6

What has been a special Bible verse to you lately?

We would love to hear what verse(s) from the Bible has been blessing you lately!  Please share by leaving a comment below - and if you want, it would be great to hear why it has been so meaningful.  We look forward to sharing encouragement with sisters around the world from the Word of the One we love - God!

I will start us out with a few that have been really special to me lately:

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire, you shall note be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior..."  Isaiah 43:1-3

It brings such comfort to my heart knowing that no matter what I am facing or going through, the Lord is with me as my Redeemer, Lord, and God!

Now it is your turn - what has been a special Bible verse to YOU?
