New Bible Study Idea September 26, 2012

Filed under: faith — ourprairiehome @ 12:15 am

Recently, on a homeschooling board, one of the ladies shared this idea and I loved it. I am now doing this as a part of my own Bible study.

I chose a book of the Bible that I wanted to study in depth. I chose the book of Colossians since that is the book I was already preparing to study.

I have a notebook and am writing the scripture in the notebook. It is basically copywork, writing it exactly as it is written in the Bible. After writing, I pray about what the scriptures are saying to me. I journal my thoughts about that scripture and what it is saying to me at that time.

This simple activity is bringing a deeper level of understanding to me. It makes them more of a focus throughout my day. By writing the words instead of simply reading them, they are more firmly being written upon my heart.

This method is a blessing to my scripture study. I hope that the idea will bless others also.
