Hey friends, so this is post is a little different than the norm – but I couldn’t help it. Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity for a little get away to Springfield, MO. It was great! But one of my favorite things is that I got to visit the local LifeWay Christian bookstore. And, I had a 40% off coupon for one item. (Score!) The minute I saw that coupon, and realized it would be valid over my trip – my one item was pegged. A new Bible. The She Reads Truth Bible.
I didn’t really need a new Bible – I have 3 sitting on a shelf in front of me, and another one to my left hand. I use them all, but did I really “need” another? But it’s pretty! And…it’s the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) translation I’ve been desiring, especially for study. Did I say it’s pretty?
Well, I got it. So now I have two Bibles sitting by my left hand, with three more in front of me. It feels slightly selfish, but I use them all!
What a gift. You see, a sweet friend had the opportunity to do some of the artistry within its pages. To me, this Bible is more than just a pretty, and new-to-me translation. It’s tangible evidence that God goes before us, His plans are good, and that He has an abundance of good gifts to give his children. And those gifts aren’t necessarily the tangible gift of a new Bible. It’s His love, and watching His plans unfold before us, it’s the gift of forgiveness and new mercy each day.
Not only have I been enjoying the story behind this Bible – but the devotionals, maps & timelines (I LOVE maps & timelines!), and there’s even space to take notes or journal. The extras are super enriching. And even better, God is confirming messages to me within it’s pages. Praise you, Lord!
I’m not being compensated in any way to promote this Bible, just wanted to share my excitement with you. Happy studying!
