It might be news to some of you that I have not done a Bible study in the Fall all alone, in my guess, over 10 years. Yep, that is me always doing a study with girlfriends. This is by far my favorite way to study the Bible. I love doing a study with friends where there is accountability, discussion about how things are connecting with your life situation, and a history that you journeyed a particular path together. So as Fall approached and I realized that doing my girlfriend study just was not going to work into my schedule, I knew that I had to figure out how I would find something that I would connect with as well as stick to without my girlfriends along side me.
I have been following along with the blog She Reads Truth since early last Summer. I haven’t really been doing the study, just seeing what was there and how it might pertain to me. This is a Bible study blog with a daily devotional and reading plan. Then on Saturdays there is a She Shares link up where you can go and read how others are doing with same reading plan. Okay, so it is not really with girlfriends or totally solitary either. I have to be disciplined on my own to do my daily study, but then get the added benefit of seeing others’ perspective on the same scripture that I have studied the previous week. So this has become my meeting place with God each morning. I read the assigned scripture and devotional praying that my heart will be changed in ways that will WOW me. Here’s to my way of Bible study, solitary style.
