NEW WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

Getting back in the groove of my routine.  This means getting back in a Bible Study.  We had a break for the summer, but last Tuesday began a new study.

We will be studying the Minor Prophets.  Those books tucked in the middle of the Bible that few people read, much less study, but God has something for us in each book.  Looking forward to this study.

Are you in involved in a Bible Study or reading program.  Do you read for study, or fun.  I do both.  I like a weekly study that keeps me in the Word.   But, I love reading novels, devotional, and other books.  How about you?

  1. I have read the entire Bible several times in my life. I have studied it and read it for fun. I think I am going to begin a new study soon.

    1. I try to read the Bible through each year. The One Year Bible is a good way to do it, as you have a section of OT, NT, Psalms and Proverbs each day. Helps you get through all the "long hard to read books". Study is a good exercise for my brain...HaHa. Let me know what study you decide to do.

  2. Good for you Wanda. I remember we studied the book of Luke in my Catholic high school but no religious studies past high school for me. I read non fiction, love biographies from time to time.

    1. Christine, I love the book of Luke. He was a disciple but also a doctor, and the book of Luke is filled with details you would only get from a doctor's point of view. Especially the birth of Christ, and the Crucifixion.
      Reading non fiction, and biog. are such a way to increase ones knowledge. Sometimes because I study hard...I want to just read something fun and different.

  3. Hopefully our small group bible study will begin this Tuesday. Seems there is a big Leadership thing at church that night so I don't know what will happen. I love to read but have gotten out of the habit. Part of it is that my eyes get tired so easily. Daily devotionals especially Jesus Calling is my go to book for the last few years.

    1. Oops, I forgot to say that I love the picture of Tristan on your header. So sweet.

    2. Sometimes I start a devotional, and it just doesn't keep me interested. I have read my Max Lacado, Grace Moments every day. It speaks to me.

      I loved this picture of Tristan. So peaceful, holding on to his foot. He is a precious little boy.

  4. Welcome back, Wanda! I love your new picture in your header. Sweet boy, Tristan.
    After my cataract surgery, I lost vision in the center of my eye. Alan reads the Bible to me every morning after breakfast and before our second cup of coffee. This is the best kind of study for me since he explains things as we go.

    I magnify the computer screen so I can still communicate with a few friends.

    Keep up the good work of Bible studies. Love you so much!

    1. Cher, I'm so sorry about your vision. We treasure our sight and hearing don't we. I've worn hearing aids over 20 years now. Lost a lot of hearing when I was in my 50's. What a precious thing for Alan to do, reading and sharing the Scriptures with you. We have good men don't we? Love you too, dear friend.

  5. Hi Wanda :) Our beliefs are quite different, but in the end, I think that any faith that does no harm is a good faith to have - especially if we love it and benefit from it! :) It's nice that you have a good habit of studying the Bible. I think that it has a lot to offer in the way of lessons and guidance. The books I read do the same for me. I read mostly about nature, the earth, the universe, folklore, weather lore...anything nature-related brings my spirit to a richer level :) Otherwise, I'm very much into reading biographies...at the moment I'm reading Mel Blanc (Bugs Bunny and a million other voices)...very interesting! :)

    1. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and sharing such an insightful comment on your belief system.

      We are on the same page when it come to Creation. What a marvelous world we live it. Creation is meant to speak to us. As the Bible states in Geneses 1:1 " In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Our difference comes, as I went to your blog to get to know you a little better, that I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and the creator of heaven and earth. What is so wonderful, God didn't create "robots" but gave us free will and the ability to make choices. You question "What on earth am I here for? And what is the purpose of my life? Are ask by so many. Rick Warren has written a book called "The Purpose Driven Life" where he goes into detail explaining those answers. If you have never read the book, I would love to send it to you. Thanks again, for taking interest in my blog, and I hope we have many conversation on what and why we believe what we do.
      Sending love and hugs for a great weekend.

    2. Hi Wanda :) Hope you have (had?) a great weekend too! :) All the thoughts I ponder just make me think more and be grateful for what I have, so I'm pretty content! I spent way too many years seeking. Isn't it nice when things fall into place? :)
