Do you remember me? The girl who used to pour out her heart to her blog every single day? I miss her!
I have tried writing and re-writing this blog post for the past two hours and now I’m at the point where I’ve gotten completely frustrated and fed-up with myself. I wish I could rewind to the days of my daily-devotionals and take notes on how I wrote so easily and how I posted without FOOPTs (fear of other people’s thoughts – it’s a thing).
I’ve come to the decision that I’m totally over-thinking it. I need to treat you as if you’re my best friend and we simply haven’t spoken in a while.
First of all, let me wish you a Happy New Year. I really hope that 2017 treated you well, and if it didn’t – have no fear because 2018 is here, and I’m sure it’s going to be your best yet!
Whilst I’m busy writing my second novel (yay for book no.2!), I’m going to try my best to dedicate more of my time to my blog. I have an idea of posting a blog-series which will feel a little bit like an online Bible Study.
Every Wednesday there will be a new post about a character within the Bible. We’ll be starting off with King David and friends.
Just FYI, I’m no theologian and simply a Bible-worm on the hunt for little nuggets of wisdom (so please don’t read my posts thinking that I have qualifications in what I’m writing about).
I’d love for you to comment on the posts each week and give me your own thoughts, because I truly believe that all of us are able to interpret God’s Word in different ways. I might dig up something from a passage that you didn’t notice, just as you may find a pearl of wisdom that I completely overlooked.
And don’t worry about having FOOPTs when it comes to commenting on my posts. If I can conquer FOOPTs in publishing my blog post then you can certainly conquer it too! Let’s discuss what we find and unravel God’s Word together.
You might want to buddy up with a friend and read/discuss each post together over a coffee date, or if you’re long-distance besties you can meet up on FaceTime and be online Bible study-buddies.
If you want to be reminded of our weekly Bible Study, make sure to subscribe via email (there should be a little box somewhere on this page for you to enter your email address. Once you’ve entered it, go check your emails to verify your address, and then we’ll be good to go!) or follow my blog page on Facebook.
I’ll see you next Wednesday – have your Bible and notepads at the ready!
If you want to be ahead of the game and be ready for next week’s post, feel free to go and read up on King Saul (roughly 1 Samuel 10 up to 1 Samuel 16)
