guess what guys!! another faith post!! this is my second ever faith-related post on here and i’m so excited!! since i got a pretty good response on my first faith post on how i connect with my faith, i mentioned bible studying and i got a few requests to do a post on how i do it. soooo here you go!! i love doing bible studies to connect with my faith by reading and dissecting the word <33
- physical bible/bible app
- highlighter (mines a zebra midliner)
- faith playlist
- devotional (optional)
–getting into the vibes
some things i do to really set the mood are playing my faith playlist, lighting a candle and turning on my lights. playing my faith playlist is the biggest one for me!
• the bible study: psalm 22 •
so for this post, i photographed the steps i take to do my bible studies while doing a study on psalm 22 on saturday!
1. getting set up
after setting the mood, it was time to set up my page! to set up my page for my study, i start by adding a title and a date to the top. then, i highlighted the title and what section i’m doing!
2. reading & highlighting
let’s ignore that i took this photo after i finished and focus on the point of the reading and highlighting!! so as i’m reading, i highlighted all things i found as key to the section or meant a lot to me. these are later on going to be the things i write down in my journal!
3. writing notes & organizing them
so first off i write down the verses (summarized) i highlighted as i read the highlighted ones. if i had something to add to what i had read or a thought, i add another bullet below where it came from and write it down. when i had a verse that was especially meaningful to me, i added a little star to it and wrote the name of the verse at the end.
4. what to highlight/final product
after i had finished writing everything i felt needed, i chose which ones i wanted to highlight. i always highlighted the verses i wrote out along with anything else i added a symbol to. other things i highlighted were words i found important like “trust,” “wonders” and “righteousness.”
here are just some more examples of pages i’ve done recently on others from psalms and the first one which is from a study video from Milena Ciccotti. that video was one of the best studies i’ve done on galatians 5!
i hope you enjoyed this post and it helps you out in your next study!!
