I went to my mom’s church for Bible study tonight. It was okay. I’m not used to that style of teaching. It was a little light on scripture. I prefer lots of scripture. It’s the only part of going to church I love. Reading God’s word. 


Scripture


Asking God

One of the hardest things to do is to rely on someone else. I didn’t grow up with much family around, do I learned from an early age if my mom or my dad couldn’t help me, I was on my own. I wish I had known about God when I was younger. I probably […]


Proverbs

I made the decision to write out the book of Proverbs. Not sure what I’ll accomplish, but I noticed when I wrote out Romans, I meditated more on the text. I noticed things that I wouldn’t have noticed during my normal reading.  I don’t have much to say. That’s been my issue for a while […]


Easter

I won’t be blogging today. I’ll definitely post something tomorrow.

It is a very difficult book to understand and can be grossly misinterpreted. brbrI got depressed meditating on Ecclesiastes. It turns out, Solomon wasnt thinking with a mind focused on God. He had a worldly view […]

I originally discovered this app over a year ago but didn’t do anything with it because it was very limited. But the developers have really made this an app worth blogging […]
