What does it mean?

I have been in a place lately that I don't want to be in anymore. I have also realized that the only way to get out of it is to get up and change. So, I am. This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it! A few years ago I went to a conference with my mom to see Anne Graham Lotz (Billy Grahams daughter). That conference changed my thinking on how to study the Bible. I have been wanting to get back into the word, but not have everyone's opinion or interpretation on the passage of scripture that I am studying. Now, don't get me wrong, they are very helpful and I like them, but at this point I am wanting to just dig into the Word and study it for me. I want the Holy Spirit to be my teacher and show me what He wants me to know and teach me the lessons that He wants to teach me. I have been very blessed by the devotionals I have been reading, and will keep them to encourage me in those times that I need extra encouragement, or am running short on time. So, for any of you that are interested in studying the word just as it is and what it means to you here is a site you can go and Anne will teach you how to do it. It is really easy and I love it!

I am (slowly) reading through Ray Norton's Adventuring through the Bible and then listening to the BIble on MP3. I'm a little off track now due to an extensive study on women of the Bible.

Cool! I have the new testament on an mp3 player that I listen to at night sometimes when I can't sleep.
