Spilling the juice : how do we study the Bible. ***
So I got this Bible from my parents and I open the first page of my new Bible to go through it cause it seemed to contain more than most Bible contained. So I go through the first, second and third pages and I see 'very important things to know about the Bible. ' so I decided to share all that was written down there plus some of the things I do as well while studying the Bible. I stumbled upon the note where I wrote these study tips down and realized that I haven't been following even half of the tips myself 😄. I have only been doing some of them but now that I have come in contact with these tips again, I'm crossing my fingers, praying and deliberately working towards using this study tips and I hope you do as well;
1. The first thing is to know who write the Bible, the book you are about to read. You know, you could browse about it or study commentaries to know who wrote the book.
2. Who the book was written to, for example, the book of Ephesians was written to the people at Ephesus. (+ you could also slot your name here cause the books were written for us as well)....
Let me know if you have other tips for studying the Bible as well.

Good Morning Jesus Followers,
It’s a New Week a New Opportunity!!! This week may be filled with much joy and happiness or it could be filled with much disappointment and suffering. We can’t know what tomorrow holds therefore we need to know who holds each and every day and that is Jesus. There is no need to fret or worry about what each day will bring this week if you are in relationship with Christ. No matter what happens He will be with you through it all. Trust that no matter what happens this week you can handle it as long as you have Jesus.
If its good, I will celebrate with Jesus. I will thank Him for blessing me.
If its bad, I will celebrate withJesus. I will thank Him for His grace carrying me through.
This week instead of worrying about all that could go wrong, all that I don’t have, all that I can’t fix, I will keep my mind stayed on Christ and all that is good in my life.
There are many who would love to exchange places with you and we’ve all heard that before.
One night while waiting in the ER with my daughter God allowed me to witness this homeless woman begging the police to arrest her. This woman had no where to go on a cold and raining night and the hospital would not keep her and the shelters were all full. Her only solution was for the police to arrest her so she would have a place to stay. She kept telling them how bad she needed to rest and get out of the cold. I couldn’t imagine anyone wanting to be arrested but she did.
It dawned on me in that moment that truly there is always someone who would love to have your circumstances so be grateful. This week I will be thankful for the good, the bad, and the indifferent because through it all God is still Good!! Have a Miracle Working Monday!!!
