Is it hard to find time to spend with God and grow your faith? The One Verse Devotional is a short, 5 minute-ish podcast where we grow deeper in our faith through just one verse a day, Monday through Friday. A practical and encouraging look at the Bible, now you can spend time with God whenever you want. Hosted by Matt McCarrick and brought to you by Phosphorus Project.
This is the episode I never thought I'd be recording. After 5 years, 950 episodes, and 750,000 downloads, I am stepping away to take a break. The One Verse Daily Devotional will still be available. I am keeping the podcast up. Feel free to go back and listen to past episodes at oneversedevotional.com
