The last study of Revelation left off in chapter 19. This is part 2 of the last chapters of Revelation. If you have ever wanted to study Revelation but are scared (like me) I encourage you to go back and read through the book and follow along with my notes. I breakdown the symbolism into...

Revelation: Chapters 14-22: Symbolism and Final Blessing (Part 1)

The last study of Revelation left off in chapter 13. We discussed the mark of the beast not being a literal "mark", the meaning translates to "never God, never God, never God." Let's finish up the wild vision that is Revelation and take it chapter-by-chapter.  Scripture: Read and color-code Rev. 14. Try not to get... Continue Reading →

Revelation: Chapters 12-13 Symbolism

Last week I needed to take a little break from Revelation. There was a lot going on around me. But I am back to it this week. If you've had a hard time following along with all the symbolism, like me, chapters 12-13 are no different, but I powered through it, and so glad I... Continue Reading →

Revelation: The Seven Trumpets

My husband is a dream teller. He loves to tell me about his crazy dreams. He remembers these with vivid and striking details. As he is rambling about his dreams, he admits it makes zero sense to him. It makes less than zero sense to me and sadly, I start to zone-out. That is what... Continue Reading →

Revelation: The Seven Seals

Do you ever think back on your childhood/teen years and think may, just maybe, you are remembering events wrong? Especially now that I am the big 5-0, I think back and wonder. The imagery of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, as portrayed by the Worldwide Church of God sermons, is such a vivid memory... Continue Reading →

Exploring Revelation 1:1-8

Revelation scares me. Ever since I was a teenager. Right around the time I began my teen years, we stopped attending our little Nazarene Church in the heart of the Ozarks. Instead, we chose to watch church from the comfort of our living room on the console TV. The Worldwide Church of God with Herbert... Continue Reading →

Bible Study: Revelation

I have avoided studying Revelation for one big reason. I tried reading it as a teenager—and as a highly impressionable teen, it FREAKED ME OUT. 😬 The horsemen of the apocalypse and the plagues was scary. Also, take in account it was 1980-something and the fear of Russia dropping a bomb on us was a... Continue Reading →

Who was the real Mary Magdalene?

The Bible doesn't tell us a lot about Mary Magdalene's past. Her back story is hidden from us, left to speculation by many.  Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute, Jesus' wife, the most loved disciple, and Peter's adversary? We can speculate all day long, or we can look to the Bible for clues about the real... Continue Reading →

Philippians 3: Don’t Listen to Dumb Dogs

The question for today is: Who do you listen to? The world or, the Spirit of God? Before we continue on with Philippians, first things first, before I continue. I am not a Bible scholar.

Philippians: The Back Story

A Walk Through Philippians, Part 1: The Back Story Anyone who says, "People don't change," never read the story of Saul/Paul. Originally named Saul, Paul was number one enemy to all Jesus followers. He made it his life's work to seek out and persecute Christians. And, when I say "persecute" I really mean he stoned,... Continue Reading →

Relationship Matters

Your relationship with God matters. That is why I wrote this journal. It’s all about Him. As Christians our ultimate goal is to have a relationship with Christ, right? That’s what we say in church. It’s what we tell people. But how excited are you about Bible study...really? This isn’t meant to make you feel... Continue Reading →

Bible Journaling | Works for Me

I may have mentioned once or twice (or more) how I like to highlight books I am reading. I highlight passages I don't want to forget. I take notes in the margins. This is why I can never lend out my books to friends. Who wants to read a book with highlighter and notes written... Continue Reading →

Leap of Faith | Ephesians 3

My One Word for 2014 is Leap. It's all about leaping to find my writing voice in the blog. Leap and trust His plan. Leap and plant Small Seeds. Have the guts to leap. I have been refocusing on that word lately. This week's Bible study of Ephesians 3 screams of leaping. At times I... Continue Reading →

How are you guarding your heart these days?

I am working on a Bible study guide of Proverbs. I find working with a study guide helps me understand and "pay attention" to the Word. I give thought to the Word. Otherwise, I tend to skim over the message and I don't really "listen" to the words. Proverbs 4:23 (NLT) is a plea from... Continue Reading →
