Our Reading Plan {{POTF}}

Welcome, friends!! I am glad to have you here, whether you are a regular reader or brand new. Welcome!

Our Bible study officially starts on Monday. I am excited for our study time together. I hope you are finding your own excitement for this study and all that the Lord has in store for each of us.

This is going to be an amazing time of worship and community. Let’s come willingly, and enjoy this time of growing – together!

Blog Bible Study Tools –

While there is an eight week journal we can use (for this or any other study), the most important tool needed is our reading plan. Having this reading plan operates as our guide for this study. It shows us what Scriptures we will be reading through each day in an easy to navigate format. Our reading schedule helps us walk through the books of Titus and 1-2 Timothy in just eight weeks!

 

Quality Time, Needed Time –

Friends, let’s prepare our hearts for this beautiful time of worship! Through the course of our study, we are getting to do something life impacting. We are given the amazing privilege to spend quality time with our Creator. The One who knows us completely, and wants to be with us.

As we give ourselves to the Lord and draw near, He will meet us here and bless this time!

Why I Study?!

I am so excited to see how the Lord will use this time. In each of these studies, the Lord has faithfully “shown up” in my life. They have been so memorable to me, because of their effect on my relationship with the Lord. This is why I find myself continuing to go back to our Ephesians journal and even the Matthew 4-7 journal. Each holds a special place in my relationship with the Lord, and reminds me of how the Lord has spoke to me in the past.

Two things are always evident during my involvement in these studies:

  1. Quality time with the Lord – I know that I am more connected to the Lord during these special times. As I keep my commitment to go through a particular study, I am more focused on the Lord and linger in His presence (see John 15:5, Joshua 1:8-9).
  2. Joy – This is a byproduct of being with our Lord Jesus. I have more joy and feel whole. I don’t feel empty or like I am missing something somehow. This is the time, where I am doing exactly what I should be doing. . . drawing nearer to the Lord (see Psalm 16:11, 23:1; Colossians 2:6-7).

Teach Us, Lord

The Lord continues to work in and change me, as I give myself to these studies. These Bible studies are needed on many levels, including my relationship with God through Jesus Christ – our Mighty Savior.

We can trust that God will work in us through this study. Friends, let’s prepare our hearts for what the Lord is going to teach us.

Lord, help us to remain willing during this sacred time! Move in our hearts and help us to draw nearer to You. Thank you for this time. Speak boldly, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
