Bible study

Standard

I find myself today, curious about what anyone who happens across this little blog/neglected journal of mine is studying right now. Do you study your Bible daily? Do you study with your spouse? Do you pray with your spouse daily? What are some areas of the Bible, or topics you have studied? Nosey today, aren’t I? I’m sorry but I was reading this morning, I think semi-studying would be the word, in James 2, and I found myself full of questions. I have to remember to make a list of these questions for my Sunday school class!
I have not yet purchased myself a commentary to help me along. What would some of you recommend as products/items/information/materials that you have used in your Bible studies, that you found exceptionally helpful?
I am also studying the Sermon on the Mount for my personal Bible study. I thought this might be an area that would be filled with lessons for me, and it is. I am someone who likes instant, or very close, satisfaction, so imagine my surprise when I started really reading through these scriptures, Matthew 5:1-7:29, and find that this is NOT going to be something that I can read over and study in a day or two! Not if I really want to get something out of it anyway, which I do. So, with that I discovered one lesson the Lord is really working with me on. Patience!
I used to think I was a fairly patient person. But I have discovered that my patience seems to apply only to certain conditions. Have you ever noticed that about yourself? Apparently, this is a pretty big thing that God wants me to fully understand. He sure has put plenty of things on my plate requiring me to just sit back and wait! I know God has a reason for everything He does. I just wish I could see those reasons a little quicker and easier sometimes! See, I definitely need these lessons on patience!
Well, I am now going to go study a bit more and see if I can understand more of what God is showing me. It is a really cool thing when He shows me something and I recognize it!! Especially where these life lessons are concerned!
Okay, I’m rambling, I know. Thank you for YOUR patience if you have read this far! God bless you and have a great day or so, until I get back here with something else!

About jlhall1107

The most important thing to know about me is that I love the Lord Jesus Christ. I am a Christian first and foremost. Everything else is just icing on the cake! If you don't know Jesus, please ask. I'll be happy to introduce you!! I am wife to Gerald x 30+ years, mother of 4, grandmother of 8. I have many hobbies and when I decide I want to 'try' something new, I always jump in with both feet!! I love to crochet, scrapbook, make cards, garden (especially flowers). I raise chickens. The hubs and I are parents to two weenie dogs, one lab, and one very moody siamese-ish cat. I also love to write, always have. I won an award for news writing in high school but did not pursue it, which I should have done! I have had a few articles published and there is no greater feeling than to know that some of your work has been read nationally! I am a Scentsy consultant!! I am pushing the wax and warmers, laundry items, and household cleaner on everyone I possibly can! Why? Because I LOVE these products!! They are so much safer than burning candles. The wax is not burned, it is warmed and remains at a cool enough temperature that you, or your child, your pet, etc., can put a finger or whatever into the melted wax and it does not burn. And the scents are to DIE FOR!! If you are interested in checking out my website, it's www.wickfreechickadee.scentsy.us Let me know how I can help you! Well, that about sums it up so if you have any questions, please just ask! Doesn't mean I will answer them, but doesn't hurt to ask!!
