I’ll admit – in 2011, I was pretty lax in my daily devotions. I didn’t apply the discipline I should have to keep up my time with God each day. Fortunately, in 2012, this has changed for the better. God has given me a new love for Him, and the word ‘discipline’ hardly seems to fit with the peace that comes from reading His word and talking to Him. For a change, yesterday I went outside to do have my ‘quiet time’ (as it’s dubbed in this house).
This was my stunning view from the back of the house –
I got settled up there with my Bible, two letters I’d received in the mail, my diary, and a pen. It was wonderful =) I read some in the Psalms, which is my favorite book of the Bible, and some in Proverbs (second favorite).
One thing that really got me started on daily Bible studies was the King’s Blooming Rose magazine; particularly the issue about quiet times with God. And then I ran across this article below written for an out-of-print magazine (though Amy Vest writes for KBR now) that I thought was extremely good. I’m sorry that the emoticons or whatnot look like squares – it does that on the website too 😉
What are your Bible study habits?
