Is it hard for you to enjoy reading your Bible? It is for me...sometimes. Most times it seems I do it out of duty and not desire. Satan likes to tell me: its boring, they're old stories, you've read it all before. But how will I get to know God unless I put forth the effort? I WANT to read my Bible, but there always seems to be something else to do.
So I want to share with ya'll a few things I do to help myself understand His word and kind of get myself more interested.

1. Find some verses where God is speaking and put your name in there so He is speaking specifically to you.
2. Pray verses, pray chapters. Change the wording a bit so it is you speaking to God.
3. Look up the words that are confusing. See what they really mean.
4. Rewrite special verses so that they apply to you.
Something for you: Make an inspiration wall
  Write up some meaningful verses or quotes and arrange them on a wall where you will see them often. (I have one right next to my bed.) Change them after a while when you have them all memorized.


  1. Thanks for sharing, Heather! Those are some really good ideas! I'm especially keen to try number one - putting my name and situations into Bible promises.

  2. Great post! :) I recently starting writing in a journal every night and writing down the important verses or quotes in my studies. It's really helped me get in the habit and I've really enjoyed my studies more. :)

  3. Hi Heather,
    Thank you so much for sharing these tips! It is so easy for us to let our Bible reading become stale and lifeless. A friend of mine likes to pray the prayer of Psalm 119:18 before beginning to read the Bible, which is something I want to do as well.
    I love re-writing verses that are especially meaningful to me at certain times... it really brings the verse alive!
    Thank you again for sharing this post!

  4. These are wonderful ideas Heather! Thank you for sharing them! <3

  5. Thanks y'all! I have definitely started enjoying and looking forward to spending time with God since going some of these. Also War Room was a big encouragement for my prayer life!
    Keep trusting Him!

  6. Hey! How are you? Just a note to tell you I have tagged you in the Liebster tag! More details on my blog! I hope you will do it!!

    1. Woops I kinda forgot about that! Um I'll have to see! Thanks for the tag!
