Introduction to Bible Study

I am skating on thin ice with this declaration to post weekly. But know that I am still at it. 😉

Introduction to Bible Study - Book of James

My greatest conundrum is what to share in this space. I am asked and emailed many questions, however, I’m not certain what I plan to post. Therefore, in 2016 I am going to write about everything and let myself test the waters of posting regularly. I believe this will help me find my rhythm and it will save me the time of self-discussion about what is and what is not relevant.

Week 10 of Bible in 90 Days | Summer 2015

This week we will read 12 books in the bible. 12! To me, this week is the epitome of what I think when someone says “read the bible cover-to-cover in 90 days”. We will move strategically (using the reading plan) and swiftly (in seven days) through the minor prophets and end our week in the New Testament.

Read the Bible by Dana Pittman

This is a GREAT week to jump in and join us if you wanted to but decided not to join us originally. You would have an opportunity to read through the minor prophets and the New Testament with us.

Week 9 of Bible in 90 Days | Summer 2015

I read an interesting note that said the phrase “They will know I am Lord” is said 62 times in Ezekiel. What do you think God really want from YOU through this journey? He wants us all to know that He is Lord.

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.” The LORD is good to 
those whose
hope is in him, to the one who seeks him…

Week 6 of Bible in 90 Days | Summer 2015

For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this? Esther 4:14

We are at a very interesting time in our country. So much has changed, their is unrest, hearts are heavy, lives have changed… 

It reminds me of a saying my grandmother would declare often, “we are in our last days”. 

This week’s reading makes me think of this passage where Mordecai makes Esther aware of his faith in the impending deliverance of the Jews. But he also imparts some words of encouragement, at least to my sometimes unsettled heart. 

Mordecai says “And who know but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14 NIV) [Read in context.]

Maybe you too have been positioned and planted in your current situation for such a time as this. To me is makes me believe, “I am made for this. This moment has not caught God by surprise, oh no, He has His children right where He needs them.” 

I hope you too find encouragement in the passages ahead.

Books We’ll Encounter This Week

Week 5 of Bible in 90 Days | Summer 2015

Our summer is in full swing. What about you? 

For those of us still reading this means we may need to make adjustments to stay the course. But I hope you see the light ahead because we are nearing the 30 day mark.

To stay on target I will keep my phone (to read using YouVersion) and my bible (I used the Bible in 90 Days bible) nearby. Don’t forget as a back-up…back-up plan you may also consider listening to the bible. For listening I use either YouVersion (I like the NLT version) or The Bible Experience on Audible.
