Bible Reading Supplies (Instagram)

Hello! Let me tell you, I’m quite excited about this post. I want to share with you the materials & supplies that I have found to be most helpful for Bible-reading & memorization. Read through my favorites & then leave a comment telling me something that you like to use during Bible study. Anyway, without further ado, let’s get into it!

-Highlighters. If you know me, you know I most definitely love color, so of course I need color in my Bible! I use highlighters for highlighting verses that God has pointed out to me, ones that have been talked about during sermons, & ones that I need to remember & apply better to my life. I also like to highlight specific key words (if you’ve ever done Precept Bible studies, you’ll know what I mean), such as God’s name & any pronouns (He, His, Him, etc). Note: If you buy highlighters to use for your Bible, make sure you get ones that for sure do NOT bleed through the paper, as Bible pages are thinner than other books. The brand I use is from LifeWay (a Christian bookstore), called Hi-Glider, & they’re actually gel highlighters designed specifically for Bibles. You can also get plain gel highlighters somewhere else like Amazon, where they might possibly be selling at a cheaper price.

-A pen. Or pens, actually. I found a set of non-bleed pens at LifeWay that came with black, pink, purple, yellow, green, & blue, though I really only use the black. I also have another generic purple pen that I probably got from somewhere like Target. I use the black pen for taking notes, underlining, & writing cross-references, & I use the purple pen for notes, underlining, & circling God’s name along with any pronouns.

-Sticky notes/Post-It notes. I love these so much! I use the small flags for bookmarks, & I use the big squares for notes that I’ve taken on a certain verse chapter & for overviews/summaries for different books of the Bible.

-A concordance. A concordance is a book that has lists of scripture references with specific key words in them. It’s the equivalent of a search engine for your Bible. You can find free ones online (aka Googling your key word & then putting “Bible verse”), or if you look for one, you can get a Bible with a concordance in the back. I have one in my Bible, & I love using it! It’s amazingly helpful when you need to find Bible verses about something you’re going through, but don’t know where to find them.

-The YouVersion Bible App. This app is available on most mobile devices, & is pretty much the go-to if you don’t have a physical Bible in your hands. You can create a free account, which will allow you to highlight verses digitally, bookmark them, add footnotes to them, & look at verses in an array of different versions. There are also a ton of Bible reading plans/devotionals ranging in length from a few days to over a year.

-Other people. Sometimes it helps me to get a perspective from other people on what a specific Bible verse means, & doing Bible studies is an excellent way to grow in faith.

-The Holy Spirit. You know, out of all the resources I listed, all of them would be silly & useless without the inclusion of The Holy Spirit. Without Him, you can read the Bible all day & all night without getting anything out of it. You need Him in order to hear what God wants to say to you, & you also need Him to get a divine understanding of what you’re reading. If you make Him the center of your Bible-reading, your time will be prosperous.

Websites-
http://www.BibleGateway.com
-This website has a search engine for finding verses with key words, a wide variety of Bible translations, devotionals, newsletters & thought-provoking articles, & the ability to highlight/bookmark verses. It’s my favorite website to use when I have to look up verses on my laptop.-

http://www.BlueLetterBible.org
-This website is very similar to Bible Gateway in the fact that it offers devotionals, a search engine, & different versions (though less than what other sites offer), but what makes it unique is the fact that you can look up the Greek root words, hear the pronunciations, & read the definitions in specific verses, as well as cross-references, commentaries, & Biblical definitions for the words to help you better understand the scriptures. I was introduced to it when doing Precept Bible studies, & it’s been extremely helpful to me.

I hope you found some things that will be helpful for your Bible-reading! What are some of your favorite supplies?

Blessings, Sonni

    Hi, great thoughts! I like the sticky note flags too 🙂 I also started keeping a Microsoft Word document on my computer last year and copying and pasting any Bible verses in it that the Holy Spirit gives me that day and noting answered prayers or Bible questions I have. I started a new one for this year; it is neat to be able to search through it quickly if needed with CTRL+F on my keyboard.

    Thank you for all the Bible study encouragement. God bless 🙂

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

#life #God #Bible #youcanmakeit Rabbits are sooooooo cute!!!!! So when you are spending time with Jesus and a rabbit comes out of no where. Starts eating and then just lays down for a rest!!!!!
