My Bible Study

Last week, I did a post on my daily prayer life. A number of you also requested a post on my daily Bible study as well, so I decided to write one! I hope it’s a blessing, and perhaps an inspiration to you.

After I finish my prayer in the morning, I open my Bible to my mom’s Memorize and Meditate passage of the week. In case you don’t follow her blog, My Way Home Life, here’s what Memorize and Meditate is about: my mom chooses a few verses every week to study and commit to memory, and encourages others to study along with her! I enjoy this series of hers a lot. ☺

So first I work on that passage, then I move to T. R. Noble’s Community Scripture, and think about it for a bit. I try to connect it with what is happening in my life, and doing that has actually cleared some things up for me in my life.

Next, I move to my book study. After I finished my last one in Jude, I felt God was telling me to study Joshua next. So I am! I read five verses a day and make notes on them. (Sometimes I have to Google the verses if they make no sense. I recommend Matthew Henry’s Commentary and Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges.) I didn’t know how applicable Joshua would be, as opposed to Philippians or something, but there are some amazing parallels between our lives now and the happenings in Joshua.

Lastly, I open my devotional book, Devotions for the God Girl, read the devo, and look up any passages mentioned. I am really enjoying this book! It’s fitting for teen girls, and addresses many tough issues in today’s world. I highly recommend this book! And no, this post is not sponsored. 😂

Thanks for reading! What do you do for your Bible study? I’m curious! Comment below.

  Just something quick to end – My brother is turning nine today! Happy birthday, Rowan!

    Happy Birthday to Rowan! He has a very intelligent sister! As for my Bible study, I use the You Version Bible App and I’m doing their 2018 Bible in One Year program with Nicky and Pippa Gumbel. A lot of amazing insight. After reading, I meditate on a verse or two and write my blog based on what God shows me during my meditation time. BTW, I always start my Bible time with prayer.

    1. I have heard of You Version before! It sounds interesting. It’s great that you write every day on your Bible study. That really brings it to life for me.

    I love how you really take your time to soak in the Word and meditate on scripture. 🙂 I’m glad God has helped give you answers as you give Him your focus.

  4. What a wonderful example of spiritual discipline! There is no better way to start each day than in prayer, meditation and God’s Word.
    I am currently writing our next study: A Journey through Luke and Acts. This is for a group of brand new Christians. I’ll put my notes on our websites should you care to take a look: http://www.lakesidechristianministries.org

    2. First, Happy Belated Birthday to Rowan. Second, my Bible Study starts off with prayer, then continuing my in-depth study on the Book of Genesis. Right now, I’m reading Chapter 6 and although I’m only a couple verses in; I’ve learned so much already.

      While reading, I use the Blue Letter Bible App, my Cambridge KJV Bible, my NKJV Study Bible, my note-taking journal, and my prayer journal.

      1. I use BLB too! I find it really helpful, especially in my Tuesday and Wednesday posts. Will you be writing a post on what you’ve learned in Genesis? I’m intrigued.

      2. Yeah I will. I’ll be discussing Adam and Eve’s story about intimacy with God and each other.

        I don’t know about any other stories in Genesis, but who knows? 😁

  5. Hello,
    I can’t believe you do all this in the morning. What time do you start? I wish I could do this too

    1. I start around 7:15-30 a.m. in the summer. But you can also do it at night before you go to bed, if you have more time then! It’s whatever you can do.

      1. How do you do all that in just 15mins. I admire it

      2. Oh, I don’t do it in 15 mins, sorry! That’s just when I start. I do it in an hour, at the longest, including my prayer. But some days, I can spend a lot of time on it, and some days I can’t.

    Good for you. It’s always refreshing to see young people sharing their faith. Years ago, I used to get together with a group of friends weekly. We would use different Bible study books such as the Purpose Driven Life. I loved it. However, life got busy, schedules changed and the group got smaller and then it fizzled out. I still do my daily prayers and devotional readings. I love Joyce Meyer’s daily devotions and her books. I also still have all of my Bible study workbooks and I will occasionally do one of them again by myself. Oh – and a Happy Belated Birthday to Rowan!

    1. Cool! That group sounds like fun, and I bet it was a blessing to be a part of. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

  7. Great job writing this! I checked out and followed your mom’s blog.
    My Bible study is only structured when I’m studying with other people and have to have done a certain amount of homework by a certain time. Right now I’m studying the book of Psalms as part of an online group. I read each Psalm slowly, expecting God to speak. When something jumps out at me, I underline it in my Bible and check out cross references to see what else God says about the subject in other parts of the Bible. Sometimes I make a few notes in my Bible so I won’t forget what God just taught me. Then I go to the online group and briefly summarize what I just learned so it can bless others as well.

    1. That sounds very close to what I do in my Joshua study, minus the sharing online. Wonderful!

  10. I just wanted to tell you that although I don’t know you, I’m proud of you for having such a structured study time and being brave enough to share it! My own Bible study has been erratic, and I know I need to make it a good routine. Thank you for setting a great example!
