I have been absolutely amazed at the power of reading scriptures. But I don'tmean simply nonchalantly reading, as one would read a novel. Don’t get me wrong; reading them at all is better than not doing so. However I must say that lately I think I found my niche with the scriptures! A routine going along with it that simply makes me crave more.
It started out like this: writing is a medium that seems to influence my brain profoundly, so I figured that somehow I could incorporate writing and scripture reading together. I read a chapter in the Book of Mormon, or the Bible and I find a quote associated with it from lds.org or scriptures.byu.edu (excellent sources for finding inspired words of prophets). I look for quotes that directly relate to what I just read. Then I write my favorite quote (or favorite’s) in the margins of my scriptures. Yes, I have to write extremely small!
|Aren't God's creations amazing!?|
How do you study scriptures? What helps you to absorb the words and feel the spirit? If there is anything I have learned in this process it is to do whatever you need to do to feel the spirit from scripture study, not just read them. I have seen a direct correlation with blessings in my life to this diligent study and receiving of the spirit each day.
Thank you for sharing in my flow of thoughts.
