In my first post of 2015 (ahem…Happy New Year!), I’m talking about one of my favorite subjects—bible study. Two people asked last month if I’d done a video on studying the Bible, and one of them suggested I do so. I thought, Great idea. If I ever get time. I can’t even say I prayed about it, because God had already been dealing with me about putting full-focus on the things He’s called me to do in this season. But on the treadmill last week—why do so many things come to me on the treadmill?—it surfaced again in my mind and wouldn’t let go. So then I prayed about. ;-)
For many years, through fiction, one-on-one conversations, women’s bible study, or with my own kids, it’s been my passion to help people learn to study the Word for themselves. As I say in the video, this isn’t a definitive “how to study your Bible” guide. I’m simply sharing from the heart as to how I study, and my prayer is that someone might be able to use a tip or two in her own study. There is nothing more life-changing than the mind-renewing, soul-impacting words of the Bible—and there’s nothing like learning to glean truth for yourself.
I’m posting the video below, and the link is here, in case you do not see it in your inbox. Here on the blog, I’d love to hear from you. How do you study? What tips can you share? If you journal, do you incorporate journaling into your studies?
