So today I am seeking answers to the question, "What is one thing you could do this year to increase your enjoyment of God?"
Wow. Can I just copy what I wrote this time last year? I have had so many ups and downs this year. From three months of a close walk with my Lord to deep despair of Carl losing his job and not seeing a way out. I have also seen The Lord fling open the doors of blessing in answers to prayers. From my deep miseries God heard just a melody and rejoiced over my brokenness and brought me so many times to a place of joy. I know how to have a walk with Christ. I have heard it so many times. I know the right words to say to make it look like I have it all together. That is all a lie sometimes. In trying to figure out why I am failing I discovered that no has ever taught me how to STUDY my Bible. Yeah, I have read it countless times since I became a Christian. But study it. I have no clue. No one ever taught me how to dig into the depths that are contained in the pages that God ordained to teach us everything we need on our Christian walk. So this year I have decided to learn to STUDY the Bible and not just read it. I have started reading Kay Arthur's How To Study You Bible. It is very enlightening. I plan on doing a short inductive Bible study and see how her program works. I am excited. So this year I plan on enjoying God more by STUDYING his word.
