Welcome to Simply Seeking Him…Daily Scripture Encouragement. There is nothing greater that you can do in your life than to know God’s Word. He is the reason we exist and our purpose in life is to know Him and make Him known! My passion for the Bible has prompted me to encourage women to study His Word daily. We hope this daily Scripture will help you to do just that!
Each day there will be a Scripture to read. I encourage you to use the translation of your choice. I would also encourage you to get a journal specifically for writing out Scripture. There is something about putting the pen to paper that helps us connect with His Word even more. Then take it further if you can and memorize part of it as well as researching the verses YOURSELF. We have provided some helpful resources but there are many out there.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27NIV
24Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way as to take the prize. 25Everyone who competes in the games trains with strict discipline. They do it for a crown that is perishable, but we do it for a crown that is imperishable. 26Therefore I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight like I am beating the air. 27No, I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.
Write it Out
