Study to be approved

So, I am sitting here on a Saturday morning studying to be approved to God… Well what does that mean exactly??  I think that it means that I am to study the word of God but more than that I am to memorize the things that are important so that I can be error free on the statements that the Lord has said.. I am to also study to get the Word of God into me so that when the enemy comes at me I will be able to withstand the blows of the enemy simply because I am prepared for battle.

I am also to study so that I can help my fellow man out when he or she is in need of help.

Currently, I am doing a very detailed study on the word TRUST. In the NASB(new American standard), Complete Jewish Bible, Orthodox Jewish Bible, and Holman Christian Standard version there are over 600 scriptures that have some part of the word TRUST in it. I have a long way to go on that but when God asked me to do that it was for the reason of challenging mistakes in theology or challenge my own thoughts. It is for me to write out the scripture and my thought and then share it with someone who will challenge me. AMAZING huh? Yeah, God works that way with me all the time… I had a person tell me why do that? Why not just blindly trust God instead of doing this.. It would be easy for sure to blindly trust the God of the universe but honestly for me this is walking it out… So far of the 600 verses I have only written 50 or so out.. of those I have had to challenge 20 of them. So, for me it is going to take most of the year I think to do this but it is a God given assignment and it is an assignment that I can not take lightly.

So, when you wonder if you are to study the word of God you bet. You are to get to know the Word like it is your war manual, you are to trust that there is a reason for the studying.. And there always is. Memorize but do more than that challenge when you are stuck…

I am a flawed Christian who loves Jesus more than anything. Originally from the east coast of the US (Philadelphia, Pa). Currently living in Az. I am a single female who has no children. I do have a bunch of nieces and nephews. I do love to dance, swim, sing, travel, and play. I love dogs and am allergic to cats an sulfa. I don't drink or do street drugs or abuse prescription drugs. I love the USA and am ashamed of some of the folks that are running the show in DC (both parties). Personally, I don't think that our founding fathers intended for the service of our members of congress was supposed to be a life long job. I think that they meant for it to be short term. I love all kinds of movies but classics are becoming my favorite more and more. I do not like much of what is on television today because the world of make believe "reality tv" is unreal, and the rest well I just don't like the animation programs either. I love Jesus and try to serve Him with all I am becoming more an more like Him daily. I may stumble and I may make a mistake but I can always count on the loving arms of my Jesus and my Heavenly Father to come pick me up again and help me stand. I am not afraid of trying or failing but I am afraid of bragging and doing it on my own. I try to love all people and help all people (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't). But even in that God is my all an all. That is who I am. Nothing more and nothing less. What you see is what you get. Like I said at the beginning I am flawed. I am human, and while I am not sinless I am able to sin less and help others to learn how to sin less. God is good. I hope that you enjoy reading the things that I write.
