Digging Deep

So, yeah, another random title! :D But really once you read it, I think you will get my meaning!

For the past several months I have had a lot of struggles. Things have been hard for me, but really I brought some of it on myself...

I finally realized that I was selling myself short because I was not taking enough time to read my Bible. I was reading it, sure. Actually I would just listen to it while I worked on something else.

I don't have enough time to just sit there and read it. I would argue with myself.

Then one day I was sitting on my bed, feeling really dejected, and discouraged. I knew I had to do something different.

So, I picked up a Bible study book that I had bought several months before, and started reading! I devoured a 172 page book in about 3 hours! And this time I was NOT skim reading. After I had read it I had a lot more determination.
Since then, I have really focused on putting GOD first. I will admit that I haven't done perfectly. But, God has really blessed me with a hunger to know more.

My Bible, Journal, and a Devotional Book.

Every morning, I try to get up and read my Bible first thing. I start by reading a chapter in Proverbs(like if its the 15th, I'll read chapter 15...). Then I read 1 or more sections of the book From My Heart to Yours By Glorianne K. Gibbs. For each day there is a verse, then thoughts on the verse.

So, I started to write down each verse, and my own thoughts on the verse. That way it really makes me think about it...


  1. Hey Hannah, Thanks for your comment on my blog!!!
    What are the names of the people going to Fairhaven?

  2. For me your post proved a much-needed reminder of the importance of Bible study. It does prove a blessing. Sometimes I find it difficult, but even then I find it is best to persevere with writing anyway.

    I am glad you are all doing well. I haven't commented for a long while, but I have been reading! Is all going well with your mother's pregnancy still?

    Blessings in Christ,
