I am celebrating today! Please join me!
My last post was my 1,000th post in Journey Towards the Truth!
Unbelievable! Thanks so much to many of you who have been on this journey with me for several years. I appreciate your ‘likes’ and I appreciate your encouraging comments.
This is my 8th straight year of reading through the entire Bible. I started blogging about it the 2d year and haven’t stopped.
So your obvious question for me is – ‘Are you closer to the truth since you’ve been on this journey for 8 years?
I cannot describe how much closer to the Truth I am. The Truth is God and this journey has cemented his words in my mind and on my heart. During these last several years I have also memorized the entire chapters of James 1 and 2 – making it so much easier to hear God as he speaks his words into my mind to comfort me, guide me, and challenge me.
I am infinitely grateful that I obeyed when God asked me to start this blog. Looking back, God wanted to bless me and he wanted to prepare me to weather the most painful tragedy of my life – when my son, David Glasser, a Phoenix Police Officer, was killed in the line of duty. God knew I would need a close relationship with him when my life blew up. He knew I would need his Word carved deep into my soul so I wouldn’t get lost in bitterness and hopelessness.
God has been my anchor through this worst storm of my life which continues to rock my world with waves of emotion and loss. God is my safe haven and I’m confident that he will continue to hold me close all the way to the day he brings me home.
He is my good Father who loves me and wants the best for me. My earthly circumstances do not change these facts.
Thank you for inviting me on this journey with you, Abba Father.

Beautifully said. Thank you for sharing 🙏
Thank you, Catherine for your encouragement and prayers💙
Good morning, Judy. I’m so sorry for the loss of your son. I lost my daughter to Spina Bifida twenty years ago. A loss that I could not have endured without the presence of God in the situation. He’s also been drawing me closer to Himself, as I have begun living with several serious health conditions. Mary ❤
Sorry to hear about your loss as well, Mary, and the tough circumstances you are in. I’m so glad you have a close relationship with God to help you.💙💙
Congratulations Judy! It is amazing that you have posted 1000 blogs. They are always so inspiring. You have blessed so many people through your journey. Thank you for sharing how God is real to you. When is the book coming out with all of them combined? Think about it. Love you!
Thank you for all of your encouragement along the way, Marilyn. If God ever says, ‘Make a book’, I’ll make a book. Until then, I’ll continue to blog until he tells me to stop. Love you💙💙
I get so much out of reading the Bible through every year. God has something special to say every single day to me and it’s so personal! I can’t even imagine your pain of losing a child. Blessings and a big hug from an Arizonan sister.
Thank you, Mary. Yes, now I’m hooked on reading the entire Bible every year. It’s just such an important and valuable thing to do💙💙
