The B-I-B-L-E

My parents sent me to a private Christian Reformed school for 4 years when I was growing up.  I so appreciate the education I got from that school, especially the Bible knowledge.   It is kind of morbid though, that the Bible stories I remember the most clearly are when someone drove a tent peg through someone else’s head and nailed them to the ground, or when the whole earth shook, opened up, and swallowed up the Hebrews who were complaining against God in the wilderness.  This is all food for an 9 year old’s soul, I guess.

I also went to Moody Bible Institute for a while, and I am forever grateful for all the Bible knowledge I gained while I was there.

Since I was around 13 years old, I began practicing the Spiritual Discipline of daily Bible reading and prayer.  I’d venture to say that out of the past 10 years  I haven’t missed more than a total of 30 days (and that is a high guess) of spending time reading my Bible.

I say all of this NOT to brag, but to challenge.  God’s word is my rock, my foundation. 

What do you do to study God’s word?

    Still working on this area of my life. It seems to be a big struggle for me, not sure why. After last week’s sermon, I made a plan. This is my first day to follow through with said plan. I have to say that God showed up in a BIG way today. Talk about encouraging!

    thanks for sharing — I decided to read through the bible this year for the first time – I love it! and I can see that I will never go back — who knows maybe I will read a different version each year — or maybe next year I will try the chronological one — who knows what it will be all I know is that it will BE!
