Bible Journaling : how to get the most out of your Bible Study

Heyyy Guys!  I'm Janelle from  The Ramblings of a Bookworm and I'm supper excited to be able to have the chance to share some thought on here... but first let me tell you a little bit about myself! I blog about life. Books. And of that which I know of. I am a storyteller. Anne Shirley is a kindred spirit of mine. I read, perhaps too much, but that can't be helped. It's probably not super healthy, but hey, you make time for the things you love.. right? I live in Up State NY where its winter most of the year round (kidding... kind of)     love watermelon. I read books like there going out of style. I have a dream coffee shop on Pinterest. Family is goal. God is best. Friends are fantastic. i live in a state of summer. Shoes and I don't really get along. i write stories. history addict. i love exploring. some times my words are so random that no knows what I'm talking about. Also home schooled.  ANYWAYS enough about me. lets move on to the real subject.

Do You Believe?

Acts 4: 12  Neither is there salvation in any other for there is non other Name under Heaven given among men were by we must be saved. Did you know Jesus died on the cross to save our sins? Jesus did not have to do that but he wanted to. John 3:16 says For God so loved the world that He gave his
only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son to condemn the world, But to save the world though him. The bible says that we are the light of the world we are the city on a hill.  In other words it means we need to let the light of Jesus shine to others though us. John 5:24 Truly, truly, I say unto you whosoever hears my word believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life. Lets look at the word believe do any of you know what the word believe means? Believe means to accept (something) as true feel sure of the truth or to…

Don't Be Afraid to Stand Out

In our culture, there seems to be a lot of pressure to conform. You know, to fit in with everyone you're friends with, and only do what is 'culturally acceptable'.

I find that there's a lot of pressure (shall we call it peer pressure?), especially during the teen years. There's pressure to fit in - by getting into the cliques, by wearing "cool" clothes, and just by generally blending in with everyone around us.

We want to be liked by our peers, and there's nothing wrong with that.

But I'm here today to tell you: You don't have to conform. You don't have to be like everyone around you. You don't have to be the teenager who rebels, the guy who sleeps around, or the girl who goes to every single party. You don't have to be popular to be loved.

Because that's what the culture says is cool. That's what the world around us is doing.

You can rise above that. You can be so much more. Don't listen to what the world says about y…

Live Life Unedited.

Hey guys! :D For those of you who don't know me, I'm Faith and I blog over at Stories by Firefly and Chosen Vessels. I'm so excited to be joining this blog and these lovely young ladies. 


We edit things, don't we? Maybe you don't that much—or maybe you've just never thought of it this way before—but I realized recently that I edit a lot of things.

Books, stories, blog posts, emails, text messages, social media posts...and the list goes on.

And in a way that's good, really good. When we are angry, upset, or hurt, we should be careful what we say and take time to work through our feelings before we spout off something hurtful. (Ranting on social media is rarely a good idea. *wink*)

But what about any other time? What about when we retract something, click that backspace key and remove our personality?

Are we bettering the original? Improving ourselves and our life stories? Or are we telling ourselves it's not right, it's not good enough, it just doesn…

Whom Do You Say That I Am?

"He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." ~Matthew 16:15-16 KJV One of the most important questions in history. Whom do you say that I am? Imagine Jesus, standing in front of you asking you this question.

What would you say?

"Well Jesus, there's a lot of people who say You were a prophet or just a good person, even a good moral teacher. They say..."

But whom do you say that I am?

Who is Jesus? Was He just a good moral teacher or prophet? Did He come to earth to simply help people out? To help them with their problems?

Or was He more than that?

Your eternal destiny hinges on the way you answer this question.

Our God is a personal God. He asks each of us individually to receive Him. He gives each of us the choice to decide if we're going to believe what's true or what's false.

Because at the end of the day, He's still God regardless of whether you believe or n…
