i have accomplished great recovery, healing and happiness, through serious and skeptic bible study.

i have found a lot of stuff in the bible that i can't understand,
some things i have a hard time agreeing with or believing in,
but nothing, yet, that i can prove untrue.

the best part is the unexpected side effects i received from bible study.

when i read god's word,
god's voice can be heard.
and lines are no longer blurred.

my conflict has been resolved.
my problems are being solved,
now that jesus is involved.

fact or fake? fiction?, fraud?
man's attempt to speak for god?
god is perfect, man is flawed.

just an old book stuck on a shelf?
i took a look and read for myself.
i discovered spiritual growth and mental health.

modern wisdom from an ancient text?
the pieces fit. each dot connects.
i can't wait to see what's next.

the enemy knows scripture better than a bible scholar.

"Take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."
Ephesians 6:17

the enemy is already a master swordsman, and is always practicing and preparing for war.

we too, must sharpen our skills, or perish.

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being priest for Me;
Because you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.
"
Hosea 4:6


"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is manís all.
"
Ecclesiastes 12:13

"The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of knowledge.
Only fools despise wisdom and discipline."
"
Proverbs 1:7

"There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it."
1st Corinthians 10:13

"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."
Philippians 1:6

"Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."
Matthew 10:16

"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
Romans 12:21

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.
Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others
."
Philippians 2:3-4

"Rejoice in the Lord always.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in every situation, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
"
Philippians 4

"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed,
for I am your God; I will strengthen you,
I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
"
Isaiah 41:10

"The Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father
? "
Hebrews 12:6-7
