Hey ladies! We want to invite YOU to join the Across My Heart team as we read through the Book of Isaiah together!
The readings begin TODAY (print the reading plan below)! We know that the Book of Isaiah is going to be a little intense… and that’s exactly one of the reasons why we chose it! Women’s ministries tend to shy away from the more difficult parts of the Bible. But here at Across My Heart ministries, we don’t want to cushion ourselves with fluffy stuff. We want to know the power of Scripture as a double-edged sword that cuts through the confusion of this life!!
We chose The Book of Isaiah because we love the way it prepares our hearts for Easter with its emphasis on the judgment of sin and our need for a Savior.
We are super excited with how the reading plan corresponds with Lent. What is Lent? It’s 40 days of fasting leading up to Easter weekend. Jesus fasted for 40 days in the dessert, and Christians all around the world fast to prepare their hearts for Easter. Ashley explains it in the video below! The point of fasting isn’t just to deprive yourself of something, but to recognize your longings and fill that space with more of God!
We’d love for you to join THE GROUP!
1) Join the group of other like-minded women who want to read Scripture together.
2) Print the reading plan to keep track of your readings
3) Read through the Book of Isaiah during Lent (March 6-April 18)
4) Memorize Isaiah 53:1-6
5) Bonus Challenge! Choose something to fast during Lent.
We believe that the ONLY way a young woman can keep her way pure is by living according to His Word (Psalm 119:9)! So grab your girlfriends, your mom, or your sisters! And start reading His Word together!
Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53: 1-6
