Are you in the Bible as regularly as you’d like? Do you long to go deeper in your walk with Christ, but not sure which next steps to take?

Most of us would answer with a wholehearted “Yes!” to these questions. We want to know God better, and desire to walk more intimately with Him. However, a deep walk with God does not magically appear over night. It stems from continual conversation with God, obedience to the Holy Spirit, and becoming deeply rooted in His Word.

Blessed is the man … [whose] delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. — Psalm 1:1-3

A tree cannot grow without proper nutrition, neither can we grow without steady, hearty meals of God’s Word.

    I just finished my study today! I used Wild Obedience and it was IMMENSELY encouraging – thank you!!! I have already recommended it to several friends. Thank you for the work you put into it, I truly feel encouraged to cling closer to Christ, to love more and to look at how I can stir up His spirit. Thank you! xx

    Thank you for the challenge. I’ve studied my Bible many times for years and years at a time and I have never felt so good as when I do. Somehow or another, I stray from my regular readings and I just hate that because I love my time with my Bible and the Lord. I’ve been trying to get back on track for months now and I thank you because this may be just what I need to get me back where I love to be. God Bless all those who join in on this challenge and we do know He will!

    first lesson today. Was Great! When I return to back to teaching after christmas break I’ve decided to leave 15 minutes earlier. Sit at my desk drink some coffee and read the lesson. Great way to set my mind and heart before all the students arrive ☕️

    Joy C. says:

    About August of 2014, I stopped putting emphasis on my daily quiet time in prayer and God’s word because I was disheartened with things going on in my life. My study and prayer journal quickly began gathering dust, even though I felt led to keep using it. I learned about your FOCUSed 15 pledge online and joined immediately. I am on day 1 and already enjoying FOCUSed 15 immensely. I believe that I am growing in God’s word and truly appreciate your study method. Thank you! Grace and blessings to you!!

    Katherine Shock says:

    I am an American living in Singapore. I found this study on Cindy Spiveys sight. I have not missed a day. I spend about one to two hours on this. It has been a wonderful study. The light has really come on for me regarding the spirits battle with the flesh and why I need to renew my mind. I finally understand why the body must perish and the spirit is eternal. That’s why I need to feed my mind. So I can fight the battle with my sinful flesh! Feed the part that will live forever with knowledge that will not perish! I am SO hungry here. I want more please! Starting week three on Monday. Looking forward….Katherine.
