Studying the Word Beings



Reading the Bible isn’t like reading a book. I know some verses, but always forget where I read it. Then while in service my pastor will say, “turn to -” and may or may not be able to turn to it on time, much less take notes.


I had decided I was going to study a chapter at a time. I actually started taking notes and sending out questions for when I am totally Not understanding what I was reading.  It pays to be around others who are on different levels then you are and can encourage you to be your best.  I am going to give this “studying the Bible” another chance. Well, I am going to start by learning the BOOKS first and go from there.

A total of 62 Books to learn & remember one step or a page at a time. Now my abbreviations may not be right, but they work for me and that’s all that matters. No one is the same, so one step isn’t for everyone, so find your own step, And get to stepping…
