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~

The first edit was not good so here you go. Sorry about that. #disneyfriendshipcollab David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
- 1 Samuel 30:6 AMPC

This verse as meet a lot to me in the past year!!!! I love the last part where it says that "David encouraged and strengthened himself on the Lord his God!!!!!!!!" For many reasons this has stayed with me.

1) David knew that he needed the Lord. No matter what came his way he looked to God!!!! He went to Him and praise Him!!! He worshiped Him!!!! He got alone with Him!!!!!! David had the right idea!!!!! No matter what we are going through we need to look to God!!!!! He has all the answers. I mean come on, if Hr could send Him One and only Son to die for us. Do you not think He has all the answers we need? Yes He does. The question now is, are we going to look to Him or others for the answer? 
2) So David also strengthened himself in the Lord!!!! Again with the waiting and spending time with God!!!!! We need to do that as well. 
3) This one has hit me hard over the past few months. Did you see that David encouraged himself in the Lord? It didn't say that his friends encouraged him. It didn't say that his family encouraged him. It didn't say, and the list could go on. But he encouraged himself in the Lord.

Sometimes when we are in a fight it can be hard. Believe me I know. But you have to remember that not all the time is there going to be someone there to help you. You have to know how to encourage yourself. Yes it may be hard and hurts at times but we have to do it. How do you encourage yourself you may ask? Here are a few ways: · Worship the Lord in music · Read the Word of God to yourself
· Pray ( not about the problem but about the victory you already have)
· Tell yourself what the Word of God says

Those are a few ways.

So if you are in that fight right now, just start worshiping God! If your not there still worship Him. Get yourself in the mood to start that at anytime!!!! #Devo #scripture #bible #bibleverse #bibleverses #cool #yesLord Happy Independence Day Everyone!!!!!!! I pray you all have a blessed day!!!!! We need to remember the ones that are serving to keep the USA free!!! Also we need to remember that we have freedom through Jesus as well!!!!! We are free!!!!!! So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.
- John 8:36 AMPC

#July4th #Independanceday #HappyIndependanceday #Happy4thofjuly Suicide:

What makes a person think of suicide?? Loneliness, heartbreak, heartache, rejection, abuse(physical, mental, emotional, verbal, psychologically), bulling, not worth it, ext!

Did you know that there is on average a 121 suicides a day? About 13.26 per 100,000 people.

That is sad!!!!! How many of them are Christians? How many of them are school kids? How many of them are ones that are "not wanted"? How many???? The list could go on!!!!!! Stop and think about it. The person you are sitting next to could be thinking about it. At work, school, walking down the street or even church. Yes church! Do you know that Christian have the same thoughts as well? 
Is if fun to think these thoughts? NO!!!! Is it your fault? NO!!!!!!!! Is there hope? YES!!!!!! Is there something wrong with you? NO!!!!!!!!! Can't you get free and out of it? YES!!!!!!! There is hope for you. You can be set free!!!!! That is what Jesus did for you!!!!! But do you know what? People don't talk about this. People don't look for help cause they think that it shameful. The shouldn't think this way or try to do it. People look down on people that think this way. It is hard.

But what would happen if we as the body of Christ would listen up. What would happen if we payed attention? What would happen if you got so close to God that He would let us know that someone was thinking about it? What would happen?

There is hope for them just like there is hope for us. I want to be able to help them. I want to see them smile again. I want to see them laugh again. But you know what? Do you know who wants that more then anything? God!!!!!!! He wants that. It makes Him sad to see people kill themselves. 
So as a believer: I want to make a stand and help them. There is hope, help, peace, comfort, but more important! Love for them. Let us show them love and let them see Jesus in us. 
That is my prayer!!!!!! #thinking #journaling #lifepost #Jesus #God #love #peace #joy #comfort #reallife #realtalk When life gets hard, pray harder!
When life gets crazy, read the Word more.

Life is not the best but not the worst. It all depends on your point of view. 
We need to be reading the Word and praying everyday. But sometimes we have things that come up and it can be hard. But that is when we trust Him and let Him lead us. 
Don't get upset, frustrated, angery, bitter, ext. Just give it to God and obey.

Okay so I'm learning this right now. My life is not perfect but I'm learning. The more I read the Word the more I realize how much I don't know. But it is best to listen and obey. I have disobeyed but we learn from it. What satan wants for a deaator God can turn for glory. It may hurt but do. Just obey, it may seem hard but in the long run it will work out. 
I love all of you!!!! DM is always open. If you need prayer, talk, ext. I'm here for you!!! God bless
