My Bible (Instagram)

Good evening! In the spirit of my June theme, “Soaking in The Scriptures”, I thought, why not share my own ideas & methods of studying the Bible? I really don’t do anything too complicated or extravagant when it comes to Bible-reading, but I thought you might want to see what goes into my process. There is no right or wrong way to study the Bible, as long as you are doing it with the intent of knowing God on a deeper level rather than doing it to make you feel like an accomplished Christian. Remember, it’s about the quality of time you spend in the Word, not the quantity. It doesn’t matter how much of the time you read the Bible if you don’t actually pray & meditate on it. I’m not saying that you don’t have to read the Bible, but I’m saying I would rather you spend 30 minutes taking the Word to heart & allowing The Holy Spirit to work in you than spending two hours reading it just say you’ve read for that long without getting any growth out of it. Having said that, I’ll share with you what I do!

When: My favorite time to read the Bible is either early in the morning when I’ve just woken up, or late at night right before I go to sleep. Although I usually read during those times, I also will look up scriptures spontaneously throughout the day when I’m working on a devotion or just feel a nudge (that’s The Holy Spirit!) to open up my Bible & start reading.

Where: Generally, I am in my room on my bed when I read the Bible. It’s my favorite place because I can curl up with a blanket & our pets (we have 2 giant cuddly polar bear dogs as well as 3 cats & they all love being in my room for some reason) & be more alone than I could be out in the middle of the house. I prefer being alone when I pray & read the Bible, because I like being able to talk to God one-on-one so that all I have to think about is what He is saying & what He wants to show me.

What: While I am currently on a Joyce Meyer Bible-reading plan from the YouVersion Bible App, I don’t necessarily go by a plan when it comes to reading the Bible. I tried it for a while, but the ones I was using a while back just weren’t what I needed. I don’t always follow along very well with structured reading plans either, because I tend to think of it as more of a chore than as a privilege & a need in my heart. I am currently reading the Bible from cover-to-cover, & right now I’m in Exodus, but I’m not going by a specific plan. Instead, I’m just going through & reading as much as I need to read in order to know the context & get as much of the story as I can.

Since this got much longer than I intended it to be (imagine me writing a long post), I believe I’m going to have to do a bonus post with my Bible-reading tips for you tomorrow. Until then, let me ask you this-
What do you do in your Bible-reading time? Do you have any tips that you’ve found to be helpful? Let me know down below!

Blessings, Sonni

    Hi, I have tried a number of different methods/plans that I haven’t managed to stick with – I think because I get curious about some verse and get distracted from “the plan”. But even though I am scatterbrained, the Holy Spirit still teaches me through whatever verses I’m reading. So I guess I do better with unstructured Bible-reading time.

    Hebrews 11:6 and Luke 8:15 really encourage me to persevere and not give up and God will bless it.

      Okay cool, Not everyone can do a plan. I do and I don’t. It depends on what the Lord wants me to do for that day. 🙂
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
      God bless

    I would also prefer an unstructured plan, I don’t do well with structured, I would love to read the entire Bible in a year but not in a chronological way… I cane across your post while looking for a plan and it has been helpful

Feel free to leave a coment if you want. I would appreciate if you keep it clean or I will NOT publish it! Thank you! JESUS loves you and so do I!! ~TeenFaith777~

LYRICS

Peace, bring it all to peace
The storms surrounding me
Let it break at Your name

Still, call the sea to still
The rage in me to still
Every wave at Your name

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear
Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus

Breathe, call these bones to leave
Call these lungs to sing
Once again, I will praise

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear
Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear
Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus

Your name is a light that the shadows can't deny
Your name cannot be overcome
Your name is alive forever lifted high
Your name cannot be overcome

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear
Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, Jesus
