This past week I couldn't decide. I wanted to. I thought about it a lot. But no decision was made really. I did decide to reread R.C. Sproul's Knowing Scripture because it's a really good book full of helps for those wanting to dig into Scripture. Some good reminders. Thoughts about understanding, translating, deciphering. My problem is, I can't figure out where I should study next.
Should I go to Lamentations to hear a heart that's really hurting?
How about one of the Gospels because... Jesus.
Maybe I should study what it says about complaining, though that one might be a given.
Or maybe the reverse and really look into blessings or gratitude.
And I get so frustrated.
What about different people in the Bible who aren't normally the focus?
Or stories which aren't talked about a lot?
Maybe Jeremiah. Though, goodness that's a plate full!
I wont have an answer by the end of this post. I still have a few more pages in the book to read, so I feel relieved of the pressure to decide right now. But I said I would post on Saturday's about what I learn when I dig in, and if I didn't post at all that would be disingenuous.
I didn't dig in last week
I didn't learn anything from scripture.
But I'm ready to dig in. To study. To learn from scripture.
I just need to decide.
