Bible Study for the BIRDS or OWLS?

 Our first night of Bible Study was a “latte” fun with crazy coffee cups, tongue depressors, and an excitement for the Word.  So, if you are following our coffee cup plan…


DO it! (Do one day’s the homework on one day)

REVIEW it!  (Review it the next day)

USE it! (Some time before Bible Study, share it via text, FB, e-mail, or chat with a friend)


…no matter where you are in your study this week…Congratulations for getting started, girlfriend!  Dig in!


Now, you might need an entire box of 64 crayons with a sharpener to finish it, but don’t quit!  Sorry, I didn’t get a chance to tell you about all the color coding while reading the passages of God’s Word with Kay Arthur. (WINK ;)


This was totally new for me and found it really a unique way to examine the scriptures.  If it is new for you, don’t grumble, try it…you might like it.  


Remember literally resting our minds on God’s Word at the end of the first session together?  If we are going to rest our minds and hearts on His Word, we first really need to check and see what we believe about His Word.  Kay is going to help us do that this week.  As you are reviewing or highlighting the questions that Kay asks you about your own life in light of the scriptures for your REVIEW days, focus on this:  What do I think of the Word of God?  Can I count on God’s Word to be faithful?  When am I faithful to lean on His Word? When am I not?  We will talk more about this the next time we get together.


One more question this week, if you don’t mind.  Given the important topic that came up in our first session together, answer this:  Early Bird or Night Owl?  If you are curious (like me) and wondering when everyone else is finding the time to do their homework, then, leave a comment with your name sharing if you are doing your Bible Study in the morning or evening.  I am curious as to whether we have more early birds or night owls in our group.


The A.M. gals will love to chat with you and roosters about what the sunrise looks like while answering the questions in your workbooks!  LOL!  J.  The P.M. ladies & I will be up late reading your posts and hoping we win! I will have the comments tallied at the next session, Thursday, January 23rd 2017 @ 7:00 p.m.  All those who leave a comment will have their name entered into our door prize drawing!  (Aren’t you glad you read this post! ) J
