Hey y’all! I get SO many questions about my bible, and what Bible studies I do, whenever I post them on my Insta stories, so I wanted to round up all of it in one place! To start, I think reading the scripture itself is always so important. My Bible is SO CUTE and has super cute doodles and quotes throughout. As a visual person, it’s appreciated and tends to break up the tiny print for me. To supplement my bible studies, I love a good devotional to get perspective from another point of view and it tends to give me a jumping off point for what bible verses I want to focus on that day. I’ve used so many devotional books. At one point I was doing 3 different devotional books a day. Some I’ve loved and some I haven’t.
Connecting with God is such an important part of my morning routine. It gives me perspective for the day and makes me feel like I can conquer anything. We are all so busy, sometimes it can be easy to get wrapped up in it all. Doing this every morning keeps me grounded, and helps me stay aware of what’s really important.
My Favorite Devotional Books
Jesus Calling By Sarah Young
This is the one I always post about on my Insta stories. I LOVE this book. It goes through the entire year, and there’s a devotional for every day. It speaks to you like God is speaking directly to you, and it always seems to be exactly what I need. This is definitely my number one, all-time favorite. I love that the author doesn’t try to use any of her own personal anecdotes. For me, that tends to take away from the message. I know a lot of people like that, but for me, it’s not necessary.
100 Days To Brave by Annie F Downs
Okay, I know I just bashed on books that give personal anecdotes, but I actually really loved this one. She gives anecdotes, but they’re light and connect back really well with the message. It never feels like she’s trying too hard to be relatable. This one is, like it says, 100 days long. It helped me open up and become more vulnerable through Christ. I think in this day and age everyone is so quick to put up a wall when true happiness really does come from vulnerability. This helped me to recognize and break free from the things that were holding me back. It showed me how Christ is always there to catch us when we fall and loves us no matter our mistakes.
The Weekly Prayer Project by Scarlet Hiltibidal
This one was so helpful when I first started reading scripture. It’s only once a week, and when you’re first starting out it’s good to start with an attainable goal like that. It’s also very scripture driven. It gives you a bible verse and then explains it to you. Then it asks how you feel about the verse and then how you can apply it to your own life. It’s a year-long devotional, but once I started getting into the groove of it I finished it sooner than that because I started to use it daily.
