On this episode of Daily Grace, Joanna and Stefanie talk about the often real struggle of having a personal, daily Bible study - especially in busy seasons. Life is full of busy seasons - we have part-time or full-time jobs because bills are a reality. We have kids in all different seasons with a myriad of demands. We also need to go grocery shopping, cook nutritious meals, tend to the emotional needs of our kids and husband, maintain the laundry and clean the house, and maybe even exercise! And on top of that, many of us strive to be active members in our community and local church. Where and how do we find the time and energy to do personal, daily Bible study? Is it even possible? Why is it important?
In this episode, we talk about the “why” and the “how” of Bible study in busy seasons. We discuss four reasons presented in the Word of God of why personal, daily Bible study is a non-negotiable. Even though there is no such thing as a magic formula to making Bible study happen, we discuss many practical tips that may help you uncover a new strategy to make it a notable part of your busy day. The Word of God truly is our daily bread!
