Getting back into reading my bible. #ChristianLitsy

quirkyreader Which translation are you using and I think those tabs are rather cool. 2w
mom_of_4 @quirkyreader NIV. Which one do you use. My study bible is NKJ. And the tabs are from Amazon. I thought they were cute. 2w
quirkyreader For a translation I use many different ones. One I do have a difficult time with is the Passion translation. 1w

Let‘s chat about the amazing Epistles of Paul we just read—Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians!😃🙌🏻 What verses stood out most? Any favorites? #BibleBuddyRead #WeeklyWrapUp

BookBabe @mom_of_4 A little background on the #BibleBuddyRead: we started in January 2022, following the 1-year plan in the book you see here in this pic, which a friend had gifted to me. Some don‘t choose to follow that book and just use the hashtag to share whatever they‘re currently reading in the Bible, whether with a different plan or no plan at all. Either way is fine, the goal is to be in the Word every day! 😊 2mo
BookBabe I‘m a huge fan of Ephesians 4 & 5 —I‘ve read them so many times. I often enjoy listening to the musical reading of them on this recording by Grace Community Church titled “The New Life”: https://music.apple.com/us/album/the-new-life-ephesians-4-1-7-11-32-ephesians-5-... 2mo

BookBabe Also, Galatians 5:16-26 is so important in teaching how to walk by the [Holy] Spirit and not in the flesh. 2mo
BookBabe I really appreciate how Paul writes. I can feel the love flowing off the pages. His intros and closings especially communicate this, and it warms my heart. 2mo
BookBabe An example: 1 Thess 1:2-4 “We always thank God for all of you, making mention of you constantly in our prayers. We recall, in the presence of our God and Father, your work produced by faith, your labor motivated by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you” ❤️❤️❤️ 2mo
CogsOfEncouragement may have power, together with all the Lord‘s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭18‬-‭19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

mom_of_4 @BookBabe I tend to just read. Sometimes I will mix the books up. But my favorite is Romans. 2mo
BookBabe @CogsOfEncouragement Yes, amen! 🙏🏻❤️ I have that highlighted!🙌🏻 @mom_of_4 Romans is an excellent book! The podcast Real Christianity has been doing an in-depth study of Romans, I highly recommend it! Very biblically sound teaching. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/real-christianity/id1408224071 (It‘s also on Spotify and YouTube) 1mo

Doing my study for today. I am in John. Feels good to read Gods word. #christianlitsy #biblebuddyread

Pigpen_Reads What do you mean by study? I have a 3 minute prayer book my grandmother gave me. But, I'm curious about the Bible. It's been on my mind more lately. 2mo
mom_of_4 @Pigpen_Reads well I read it and when something sticks out to me i highlight it and write it down. And i write down what the section means in my understanding. I use my study bible which gives more info and my regular bible. They are two different types. One is a NKJ and the other is a NIV. 2mo
Pigpen_Reads @mom_of_4 Which would you recommend for a person interested? 2mo

We‘re about 2/3 through Isaiah! Any verses/thoughts/takeaways you‘d like to share from this book so far? #BibleBuddyRead #WeeklyWrapUp

quirkyreader Isaiah teaches us not to give up on God. He does things in his own time when he knows it‘s right. Isaiah builds upon the teachings from Job. And then Jeremiah builds upon the teachings of Isaiah. It all moves in circles. 5mo

It‘s time for some #WeeklyWrapUp book talk for the #BibleBuddyRead!

This past week we read the entire Gospel of John. ❤️

What was your favorite (or most memorable) verse or verses that you read this week?

What are your thoughts/takeaways?

What stood out to you the most from what we read?

What did you learn?

BookBabe As I mentioned in my previous separate post, I was really floored that Jesus actually prayed for us, His believers, in John 17:20–26. I‘ve read John before, definitely 3.5 years ago when I was first saved, and probably again after that, but it really struck me differently this time. Everything was so much more real and vivid and poignant. I‘m sure some of that has to do with a more mature walk, and might also be partly thanks to the CSB version. 6mo
CogsOfEncouragement One of the great encouragements from John is that he records many times Jesus slips away from angry leaders, a crowd wanting to make Him king or those who would kill him. His crucifixion was at His will and at His time.
John 4:3, 6:15, 7:1, 7:6, 7:30, 7:32, 7:43, 7:45&46, 8:20, 10:31, 10:39, 11:8, 11:53&54, 11:57, 12:36, 18:4-11

Okay #BibleBuddyRead friends, who would like to share some thoughts on the first 21 chapters of Job? 😬

Verses that stood out?

#WeeklyWrapUp

BookBabe I‘ll go first… I have a lot of thoughts… 😮 🤔 Well, my main takeaway is that Job did an astoundingly good job of not sinning in his distress. This is a man who really has mastered walking in the spirit and not in the flesh. Still praising God even after all the misfortune that has befallen him. 🙌🏻 7mo
BookBabe Also, is anyone else thinking that Job is not going to have friends after this? 😬 At first when his friends came and sat to mourn with him for seven days without even speaking a word, I thought “wow, what compassionate and loyal friends he has.” But then once they opened their mouths, well, yikes. 😳 I don‘t think they‘re going to be friends anymore after this, do you? 😬 7mo

jdiehr Job 19:25 "For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth." I love when I find the verse that inspired a hymn I know and love ❤ 7mo
BookBabe @jdiehr yes! Love that verse! 7mo
quirkyreader For this I‘m going back to notes from 2019, when I study this chapter on another cycle I know that I will have more. What stood out at that time was 1:21, 4:5-6, 4:17, 5:2, 5:9, 8:13-19, 11:11-12, and 21:22. 7mo

This past week we finished 1 Chronicles and started 2 Chronicles.

What stood out to you? Any favorite verses you can share?

quirkyreader This verse doesn‘t relate to the past week‘s reading, but a verse that stood out of me this past week was Isaiah 61:3 7mo
cwarnier Answer me this, Do we really play a part in our answered prayers? Pg 85 in the study guide question 1 "Knowing that we play a part in our answered prayers, what part do you find most difficult?" 7mo
See All 10 Comments
cwarnier God answers our prayers, and I alway like to think of him answering with a yes, no, .maybe or wait answer. We don't have any control over the answers to our prayer. We only have "control" over how we respond, and even then God knows all. 7mo
quirkyreader In my readings this past week what stood out for me was Psalms 118:8. This seem like it could have been written during the beginning of Chronicles, if we go chronological to the time when the books were written. And Samuel 16:7, which is also near that time as well. 7mo
quirkyreader A super cool book would just be the Psalter with the historical books that relate to psalms placed through out the text. Also, if anyone has an Ollie‘s near them go this week. All religious books, including Bibles will be an additional 15% off. 7mo
BookBabe @quirkyreader thank you for sharing that verse Isaiah 61:3, it‘s lovely! So encouraging and uplifting. ❤️ 7mo
BookBabe @cwarnier I get it….Yet there are times in the Bible when God changed His intended course of action as a response to prayer. Two that come to mind: when God wanted to annihilate Aaron and the Israelites but Moses pleaded for Him not to (Dt 9); and when Hezekiah was dying and prayed to the Lord, & God extended his life by 15 years. (2Kg 20:1-6) 🙏🏻 Praise God! 7mo
BookBabe @quirkyreader Psalms 118:8 is such a powerful truth. ❤️ And 1 Samuel 16:7 is a really good one too! Thank you for sharing! 😊 7mo
Roary47 So behind in the reading… However, I thought it interesting in 2 Chronicles 3:17 that Solomon named the pillars. One was Boaz who is Ruth‘s husband an ancestor of David. The other is Jachin who is the fourth son of Simeon. What is more interesting is these names both mean Strength. So cool. 😍🥰💛 6mo

This past week we read 1 Chronicles 1-22.

What was your favorite (or most memorable) verse or verses that you read this week?

What are your thoughts/takeaways?

What stood out to you the most from what we read?

BookBabe Okay, I‘ll go first. I got really behind this week, just because I have a hard time reading genealogies and lists. Still playing catch-up. A couple things stood out to me as I was reading, which I found encouraging and delightful…and I‘m quite sure I would‘ve missed them if I were only listening to audio. 8mo
BookBabe 1 Chron 4:10 “Jabez called out to the God of Israel
'If only you would bless me,
extend my border, let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm, so that I will not experience pain.‘ And God granted his request.”
8mo

BookBabe Verse 4:40 which I made a separate post about: “They found rich, good pasture, and the land was broad, peaceful, and quiet…” that just sounds so lovely. (edited) 8mo
BookBabe Verse 5:20 “They received help
against these enemies because they cried out to God in battle, and the
Hagrites and all their allies were handed over to them. He was receptive to their prayer because they trusted in him.” So encouraging! God is faithful, and prayer works! 🙏
8mo
Roary47 My goal is to catch up by next week. With summer school and VBS I only had time to sleep last week. My devotion time was replaced with Christian songs to relax me. 8mo
quirkyreader What stands out for me every time I read Chronicles is that you will have a ruler that follows the way of his “foreign” wives to impress them and make them happy, and then you will have a ruler that walked in the way of his “father” David. There was never a continual streak of the “sons” of David. 8mo

BookBabe Well, I for one am amazed at Solomon‘s fall. He was given the wisdom of God, God came to him and spoke to him, and yet Solomon still turned away from the Lord and worshiped other gods because he was led to by his women. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I don‘t get it. Where was all that wisdom then? 9mo
BookBabe I really enjoyed Elijah‘s story though. 9mo
quirkyreader With Solomon‘s fall he wasn‘t thinking too clearly. He was focusing on what can I accumulate, who can I add to my harem, and so forth. He lost focus of why he was here and the gifts he was given to glorify God. He was serving two masters, and greed won. 9mo

What was your favorite (or most memorable) verse or verses that you read this week?

What are your thoughts/takeaways?

What stood out to you the most from what we read?

Did you learn anything that you‘d like to apply to your own life?

BookBabe I‘ll go first. I talked about this in our zoom call today, but I‘ll repeat it here for those of you who didn‘t make it. ☺️ The biggest thing that stood out to me is the consequences of sin. We‘ve seen it over and over at this point. It was very evident in David‘s story. 9mo
BookBabe David was “a man after God‘s own heart.” He was anointed, blessed, and brave. He was so very adept at walking in the Spirit and not in the flesh. 9mo

BookBabe And then……Enter: Bathsheba. 🤦🏻‍♀️ “Oh, how the righteous have fallen.” 😞 9mo
BookBabe Before our very eyes, the righteous , brave, heroic David becomes insecure, driven by fear, and his whole life falls apart. So sad. 😢 9mo
Allylu I‘m reading 2 Samuel as well as 1 Corinthians. Haven‘t got to the Bathsheba part yet. David is still calling on the Lord and uniting Israel on the one hand and Ezra is looking back and retelling the story. Fascinating. 9mo
mobill76 Remembering the times that Christ was called the son of David, there are some parallels I think in Cpp 15 & 16. David's anguish on the Mount of Olives, his betrayal by Meribaal, his cursing by Shimei. Of course, the whole scene of David losing his beloved son hung on a tree was a prefiguring of God's loss of his own son. It just gives me chills. 9mo
Mimi28 Thanks for the tag 😉 I read 3 or 4 daily devotionals but hardly ever read the actual Bible. I have found lately with my health issues and especially anxiety about my mom the studying the word and spending time with God is the only thing that really comforts me and calms me down. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽❤️❤️❤️👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 9mo
BookBabe @mobill76 Thanks for those insights, I didn‘t pick up on that! That is intense! 9mo
BookBabe @Mimi28 Agreed, spending time with the Lord and His word is the key to peace! Isaiah 26:3 “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” ❤️ Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ❤️🙏🏻 9mo

More drama in today‘s reading for the #BibleBuddyRead (1 Samuel 26-29). Saul goes after David AGAIN! Can you believe it?! 😳 Then Saul consults a medium which God‘s Word clearly warns not to do (Leviticus 19:31 and Leviticus 20:6; later the Bible also reiterates this in Revelation 21:8; 2 Kings 21:6; 2 Chronicles 33:6; Galatians 5:19-21). 😧

This past week we read the entire book of Ruth as well as 1 Samuel 1-17.

What are your thoughts/takeaways?

What stood out to you the most from what we read?

Did you learn anything from the book of Ruth that you‘d like to apply to your own life?

What can we learn from Saul‘s mistakes?

BookBabe Reading Ruth in the past, I never could understand why Ruth was so determined to follow Naomi and stay with her. My She Reads Truth Bible (CSB) gave me some very helpful perspective on this question and the entire story of Ruth overall. She Reads Truth pointed out that Ruth was making a choice to follow the Lord. “This decision to stay with Naomi was so all-encompassing because it was a decision to follow the God of Israel.” 9mo
BookBabe I really love this Bible. It has devotional pages throughout, but it‘s not the typical devotional that I‘ve seen before. These focus on deepening your understanding of what you‘re reading in the Scriptures.
I‘ll share some of what really stood out to me 🙌🏻

BookBabe Naomi's husband had died, and so had her sons. I imagine Ruth,
Orpah, and Naomi sitting around the metaphorical kitchen table,
staring at their hands. Together, but alone, the bonds that held them seemingly gone. Each wilting under her own personal loss. What happens next? How do we pick up the pieces from this?
9mo
BookBabe Ruth chooses Naomi—that's her next step. She binds herself to her mother-in-law.

Ruth vows to do six things with Naomi: travel with her, dwell with her, claim her people, worship her God, die where she dies, and be buried where she is buried. Ruth isn't messing around!
9mo
BookBabe 🔆This decision to stay with Naomi was so all-encompassing because it was a decision to follow the God of Israel.🔆

God used this mother-in-law relationship to woo Ruth to Himself and, quite unexpectedly, plant her in the genealogy of Christ. It wasn't Naomi's beauty, riches, or liveliness that drew Ruth to her; it was her wisdom, virtue, and grace—fruit God had graciously grown and preserved in her, despite her enormous loss.
9mo
BookBabe Ruth saw the mighty work God was doing in Naomi, and didn't want her brush with the God of Israel to end. So there she stayed, clinging to the one person who linked her to Him.
Ruth's faithfulness to Naomi was not of her own strength. But in the midst of Naomi's doubt and sorrow, God revealed Himself as faithful and compassionate. Naomi believed God was afflicting her, yet Ruth was able to see that despite their misfortune, God was still for them.

I‘m really enjoying the book of 1 Samuel. It is so readable and reads like a novel, at least in the CSB version which I‘m reading. It is fascinating and I‘m having a hard time putting it down to not read ahead! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

What was your favorite (or most memorable) verse or verses that you read this week?

What are your thoughts/takeaways?

BookBabe I love these readings in Proverbs. It actually spurred me to spend a lot of extra time this past week in Proverbs for additional study. These chapters of Proverbs offer so much wisdom, especially in very practical matters like taming the tongue, controlling your anger, being careful about the words you choose, etc. 10mo
BookBabe In Judges, I was feeling frustrated with the Israelites for again and again and again sinning against the Lord, and in such dumb ways, by worshiping silly idols that anybody should know are not actually gods. 🙄 On a positive note, it was neat to see a woman in such a position of authority, respect, and power, Deborah the judge of Israel. I also liked how Barak refused to go to battle without her. 10mo

cwarnier I don't know when I was supposed to read this, but Psalm 22 really stood out to me. And I think it's because we are almost done with Lent and this Psalm is what we read during the stripping of the altar during holy week growing up. It really hits home for me. 10mo

BookDadGirlDad @BookBabe Absolutely! Deuteronomy for me is a "book" about the amazing feats God did to bring Israel out of Egypt and what He would do to get them into the Promised Land. It shows His power, holiness, and faithfulness to what He promises. It shows a God who is loving enough to explain how we are to worship Him and live before Him. No guess work! Deuteronomy is a book of extravagant grace for His people. 10mo
BookBabe @BookDadGirlDad Love that! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😃 Thank you for sharing your thoughts 10mo

One of the allusions used is “'turn the other cheek'', which means to not react when harm is done to you, or responding to injury without revenge and allowing more injury.

TheMrsShaw So if “turn the other cheek“ was used in ANOTHER work, then yes, this would be an allusion. But when used in the bible, it can't be an allusion to itself. Good try. 11mo

This is just one example of how it is used back and forth.

Daisey @TheBookHippie Interesting! Thanks for sharing! 12mo

Jensol77 I bought the Candace Cameron Bure Bible this year and tried to read cover to cover…this is very daunting. I am excited to do this as a group! Thanks for getting this going. (edited) 13mo
Jensol77 If comfortable, we should share our denomination/affiliation/religion. And maybe our experience with the Bible thus far. Just so we understand where everyone is coming from. 13mo

This morning I am reading Mark 8:1-26. The miracles Jesus performs in this section of scripture are as follows. Jesus feeding the four thousand and healing of a blind man at Bethsaida.




But also today is national coffee day. #nationalcoffeeday #a15minutedatewithGod #bible #mark8

Today I finished 1 Peter. Wow.
No matter what you‘re doing for Valentine‘s. God loves you so much more than anyone possibly can love on earth.

According to Google, this inscription and book ornament above a door in #Delft mark the building where the first Bible in the Dutch language was published in 1477.

I took a photo to remind me to look into this, as I wasn‘t sure of the translation at the time. Do you know if this correct, @BarbaraBB ?

tessavi It would translate to something like 'the gold clasped bible'. 3y
BarbaraBB @tessavi is right and it is indeed about the first bible printed in the Netherlands. You can ‘read‘ it here: https://www.bijbelsdigitaal.nl/view/?bible=db1477&page=1&mode=1 3y
BarbaraBB I hope you are having a good time. I am so sorry we won‘t be able to meet! 😘 3y
Libby1 Thanks, @tessavi and @BarbaraBB . I‘m having a great time here and am now waiting for a train to Amsterdam. Maybe next time, @BarbaraBB ! Let me know if you‘re ever in Northern Ireland. 😊 3y
tessavi Enjoy your trip! 3y

Stopping point for #audiostitching tonight. Finished my Hebrew Bible readings for class on Monday, now it's time to read all the secondary materials.

"And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." Micah 6:8

Scochrane26 One of my fave songs that we sing sometimes at camp. 3y

Squeezing in some #audiostitching this evening! I'm taking a break from other schoolwork to do some Bible readings for my Old Testament course. If only any of my other readings were available as audiobooks... 😪

This illuminated Bible by Crossway is dreams. It‘s so pretty and I can‘t wait to use it more in my pictures. Definitely snag this one if you like pretty Bibles!
