Intentional In Our Bible Reading!

Being intentional about spending time in God’s Word doesn’t come easy sometimes.  Especially, for people like me, who can procrastinate anything away.


Have you ever gone a long time without reading your Bible?  How did it make you feel?  Did you feel distant from God?  Were you constantly yearning to get into your Bible and hear from God?  That’s how I feel when I let the things in life get in the way of my time with God.

I am choosing to be intentional about my reading of the scriptures and memorizing the  verses that I want to hide in my heart.

Several years ago, I noticed the Bible that my sweet friend, Iris, had.  I asked if I could look through it and I loved what I saw. I tried to order one and they were no longer in print.  I wrote Rhonda Kelley, who is a co-editor of the Study Bible for Women. She happened to have one and I was able to purchase the Bible from her. She even wrote an encouraging note in it.  I have loved using this Bible.  Dorothy Kelley Patterson and Rhonda Harrington Kelley also edited the Old and New Testament Commentary for Women.

I received my copies from Broadman Holman Publishers.  You can click here for more information on the Study Bible for Women.  Click here for information on the Commentaries.





Do you have a certain time and way that you study and read your Bible each day?

What kind of Bible do you use?

I enjoy reading the New King James Version.  I have other versions, but I alway go back to my NKJV.

Do you have a favorite version?

If you haven’t made reading God’s Word part of your daily life, I encourage you to begin today!

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” 2 Timothy 3:16 (NKJV)
