I love studying God’s Word. I also like to switch things up and try new study methods. And then there are times when God has His own plans for your study of His word. You see, I wanted to study John but I couldn’t find ‘anything’ to guide me. Yes, I know, I don’t need a guide – I just wanted one. OK, and there were studies out there – just not any I was content with. So, I got the idea to just dig in. Then – I got this little idea…why not invite ladies in my Facebook discussion group (available to subscribers) to join me in reading and study. We would just discuss what we read.
THEN…I got another ‘idea’ when I started to study. I was looking up this and that and started forming a few basic questions. So, I thought “Why not pose them to my friends in the discussion group?” So, I did.
THEN…I kept digging and researching…and the questions grew in number. They were also more thought-provoking. I got another idea – “Why not just add these questions and findings to the discussion group?” The posts started to look messy and difficult to follow. So, I created documents in the group for ease of use.
THEN…I know this was God and I am sure it was His plan from the beginning to ease me into this idea because if He told me to write a full-on study right off the bat, I’d say No Way! I’m not qualified! Anyway, this idea was “Why not create a more official upgrade for your study. You are already doing the hard part – the research. Just make it pretty and add some video and other content.
So, I did. I am creating my very own Bible Study on John – and can I say – it is amazing! BTW – today is the last day for the early bird price – so get it now!
