The OPEN MY EYES Scripture Writing plan has been such a wonderful way for me to study God’s Word. I am receiving testimonials each week from women and families using the plans to dig deeper into The Word.
There are so many devotionals, Bible Studies, and Scripture study aids available to us. And while they are wonderful tools, there is nothing like getting into the Word of God and discovering the Scriptures for ourselves. Scripture Writing is the simple study of hand copying Scripture word for word into a notebook or journal. It is the practice of focusing on the Word and hearing God speak to your heart in His still small voice.
When I simply read the Scriptures, my mind wanders. I begin thinking about my daily chores or a myriad of other things. With Scripture writing, I am so focused on each word I am writing. I am focused on keeping my journal neat and artistic as I journal God's Word. It gives me fifteen to twenty minutes of uninterrupted Bible Study where The Lord can speak to my heart.
As we close out 2016, we are studying the NAMES OF JESUS. Jesus goes by so many different names in the Scriptures. Each name reveals a different part of the Lords character and each name reveals a specific function of Christ in our lives.
2017 is right around the corner and our Scripture Writing plan will continue each month. The name is going to be changing . . . from OPEN MY EYES to INSCRIBE THE WORD (more on that in another post) . . . but the function is the same. My desire is to create a community that studies the Word together, focusing on a monthly theme, and allowing God to minister to our hearts.
