I look forward to the new year because it is like a fresh snowfall, clear and crisp with no footprints. A chance to begin anew and learn more about my God. This year I have decided to read 12 devotional books, one for every month, on various topics. Coupled with that is a simple reading plan that follows a topic or theme for that month! I found these on Pinterest and am really looking forward to using them this year! If you are interested in getting copies I am more than happy to help or you can search for them on Pinterest(there are dozens!).
There are also several other great ways to read and study your Bible including:
The SOAP method.
Reading through the Bible by characters
Reading by topic or word.
The APPLE method.
My desire for everyone is that they grow in grace and have a renewed desire to be more like the Savior. The only way we can do that is by spending time daily with the Lord in His word allowing Him to speak to us. However in order for me to grow I have to be willing to let Him chip away what is not like Him and also be willing to apply what I learn. Would you join me this year in growing in grace? I would love to hear from you on how you plan to read the Bible this year!
Happy New Year everyone, may it be one of growth, change and drawing nearer to our God!
I am just an ordinary girl who is loved by an extraordinary God and I seek to love others the same way. I love to bake, read, do puzzles, watch Hallmark movies, and go shopping with my mom! This blog was created as a place where I could share some thoughts that the Lord has shown me and to be an encouragement to others who desire to know Him in a deeper way. My prayer is to learn to sit still and trust God with my future.
