A few years ago, our friend Kevin taught us to do something called an inductive Bible study. It's an excellent way to go about studying the Bible. I'll have to tell you more about it sometime. One of the reasons I believe it's so successful, though, is because you write out the scripture you're studying. I find when I write something out, it helps me to think about it more deeply. I keep myself from just "calling out words." And when I can go back and look in my Bible study notebook and see God's words written in my handwriting, it's powerful.
Try it with these verses:
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, What is man that you are mindful of him? And the son of man that you care for him?
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
My life is a work in progress, which is how I think God intended it to be. I love spending time with my husband Jeremy and am trying every day to be a good Christian wife. I am totally intrigued with cooking (especially baking) and enjoy feeding family and friends. I appreciate symmetry and design; correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation; and lovely harmonies in music. I feel more than kindly toward helpful people and strive to be one also. I adore laughing. I'm terribly glad I'm not colorblind. I like to be positive.
