Welcome to “Knowing God through His Word….Day by Day”!
This website officially began on January 1, 2009 and contains daily Bible passages, based on the Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan. In addition, there are short commentaries or devotionals based on each day’s readings, from a variety of authors. If you follow, you will read the entire Bible through by the end of each year….and hopefully KNOW God and SEE God more clearly and LOVE Him more deeply.

Day by Day
~ Karolina W. Sandell-berg (1832 – 1903)
Day by day, and with each passing moment,
Strength I find, to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,
I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.
He Whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what He deems best—
Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,
Mingling toil with peace and rest.
Every day, the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,
He Whose Name is Counselor and Power;
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
“As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,”
This the pledge to me He made.
Help me then in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith’s sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
Ever to take, as from a father’s hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.
