Hi readers 🙂
At the beginning of the year, I decided I was going to a 30 before 30 challenge. Yes – I turn 30 this year! One of my challenges was to write 30 blog posts in March.
HA- I just realized March actually has 31 days!
Anyway, I’ve been praying recently and have a strong sense that now is the time to blog again, to start writing again, to share myself again, to write and share about the Word of God again. I had been feeling this way when I suddenly realized that I had planned ahead of time that March would be the month of blogging! God and His perfect timing. Isn’t He fun!? So I thought to stop over here and I was shocked to find that it has been almost 6 months since I wrote a blog post! Admittedly, there was a LOT going on in that time period, and I have no regrets about not writing then, but I truly believe now is the time.
I’m going to go through March doing a word study on the word “mother” in the Bible. It’s actually part of a parenting study that I want to do in the Word — well, more like a family study. I want to study words like:
I haven’t done a word study in many, many years, so I am excited to start! Actually- I already did start! Last night. And my first finding really jump-started my mind and got me even more intrigued. Praise God. I always think things like, “Well, I already know what this study will show me.” Or “What else could I possibly learn about this?” Oh Jen, you know that you don’t know everything, right? Ha!
So here I am, about to embark on a journey that I pray will be enlightening and awesome and just plain interesting, too.
7The law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple;
8 the precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
9 the fear of the Lord is clean,
the rules of the Lord are true,
and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
and drippings of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.”
Lord I pray You will teach me through this word study. I pray it will be a blessing to all those who read. I pray You will speak through me and show me beautiful insights into Your grand design.
PS – In October 2011, I published my book. You can find it on amazon here! I just changed the Kindle Price to $2.99–that’s $2 off the old price–or you can purchase it in paperback. Please let me know if you read it–I would love your feedback.
