Judges – Week #1

An Introduction to the Study Hi, everyone! I am very excited for the next 8 weeks. Judges may seem like an odd choice to be excited over, but by the end I hope you will have a better knowledge of God and who we are as his created works. A few things to help us…

Hope in Teaching

I will be finishing the book of Daniel with a group of high school students this weekend. Over the last two weekends I have praised them for the way they have made a great effort to know and understand prophecy many adults feel intimidated by. I’m truly, truly proud of them. With a few quiet…

All of Scripture…

In March I began working through a year long Bible reading plan on the Read Scipture App. Prior to this, I had used a different app for my daily reading, but found gaps in my understanding as the schedule would bounce between Old and New Testaments, which isn’t the way my brain tends to process….

Holy, not Happy

When I was in my early 20s, I lived under the understanding God wanted me happy. I believed He would bless whatever I found to make my heart sing and smooth every path in front of me which would lead to a euphoric experience. I was wrong…very, very wrong. This message was toxic to my…

That’s a Wrap!

In this last week of Hebrews I hope you can look back and see how you have developed in your Bible Study Habits.  While I’m sure you honed new skills, it is my desire that you have taken noticed your weaknesses as well. Mine is that I have not placed a back up plan around…

In the Middle…

So, here we are, the Middle. This week is the halfway point and often the spot where quitting happens. Take a pulse, how are you doing? I know it seems silky to think about it, but I want you to see it through. You are close and only a few more weeks separates you from…

Make Connection

Now that we are in Chapter 4, have you noticed any patterns? Are there themes, wording, or ideas that you are now tying together? I hope you are! The author is very intentional about repetition and creating a flow from one chapter to another. An example of this is found as we glance back at…

The Heart

Chapter 4 and Chapter 5:1-10 this week! Have you noticed any change since you began your study of Hebrews?  Are your habits different?  Does scripture take on a new meaning? I hope you are finding there is a transformation occurring as you take each week to shape your skills at listening to God through his…

The Details

How are you moving along? I know if you are new to studying the Bible or the method I’m using is different from your normal way, you may feel a bit off. That’s ok! Anything new takes time, just keep going. The details were one of the hardest aspects for me when I began retraining…

Stay Strong!

You’ve done the reading, so now it is time to go back through the questions for processing! What does it say? What does it mean? Also, Part 2 How should it change me? If you need, go back and reread the original posts for help with each question. Need some help with cross references for…

Start Strong! (Week 2, Chapter 2 and 3)

Starting Week 2 with encouragement and some parting thoughts on Chapter 1. Today: Pray and read Hebrews 2, multiple times if possible ( no notes, commentary, or cross references yet!)

How Should It Change Me?

The final question comes with several additional questions attached. Jen Wilkin discussed this in her book Women of the Word (pg 98) and encouraged us to ask: What does this passage teach me about God? How does this aspect of God’s character change my view of self? What should I do in response? These are…
