When the Word takes on a new meaning

I love to study the Bible! It is a joy to see truths jump off the page.

For me, finding the main points of a passage is like a framing picture I can pick up and put on my desk—a tangible, visible representation of who God is and what He wants from me. Characteristics of a true Christ-follower become clearer, commands are more distinct, Christ’s greatness better seen.

I can pick up these “framed” truths and observe them again and again. Over time, my desk collects frame after glorious frame—portraits of the masterpiece of Scripture.

I’ve been in the Psalms for a few months now, and I saw Psalm 86 in a different light recently. I’m sharing about today over at Caroline’s.

I hope you’ll join me!

    I feel the same way, Katie. For the last few years I’ve been using a wide margined Bible. I love it because I can write what I learned in the margins. I started a new one just a couple of months ago as the old one was getting filled up. My goal is fill at least four of them up so I can pass one on to each kid when I die ( that sounds a little crazy since I’m only 52, but I was just thinking of how I would have loved to have something like that from my mom.)
