i almost called this post scripture study, but that's not exactly what i mean. lately i have seen some posts on social media about inspirational study-sometimes the bible or the book or mormon or devotional book. people are posting quotes, and verses, and thoughts.
and it's making me think...
i have been a daily dedicated scripture reader for years. i always make time for a few minutes and a few verses, but it's not enough. scripture reading is great, and i know it is better than nothing. what i really need is scripture study. i need to spend more time reading, studying, and pondering the word of God. this is definitely not the first time i've had this realization. scripture study is a struggle for me. it's hard for me to shut my mind off and really focus. it's hard to make the time. it's even hard for me to understand what i read. my life is crazy and busy, but that's no excuse. i need to make more time in my life to be still.
the question is how? when? where? i need your help. mariel wrote a post about checking in with others. i need to figure out a system and fast. for now i think the best thing for me will be to get up a little earlier, but i want your suggestions. how do you make time for inspirational study in your life?
some of the other book of mormon bloggers wrote a churchy post too.
