Do you have a special place for reading God’s Word, for planning your day, for reading your favorite book or magazine?
Psalm 84:1 says, “How lovely are Thy dwelling places, O Lord of hosts!
With just a little creativity, you can create a lovely, inviting space to meet with God and plan your day!
Do you have a bookshelf you can devote to your books, notebooks, library books, magazines? Check out these options from Amazon, or get out some spray paint and refurbish something you already have. Make it colorful, classy, inviting. You may have something around the house already that you can just move to your “spot”.
If you are in the market for something new, here are 3 choices for you:
Now, gather some special items to make it a little oasis for yourself. Surround yourself with beautiful things that help you focus on God’s glory.
I sit by a bay window overlooking my backyard. In front of the window are some beautiful plants. Fresh flowers from my yard sometimes decorate my table, along with a beautiful card holder with the words to a hymn. Right beside me is my bookcase which holds my Bible, commentaries, study Bible, current books I am reading, notebooks my calendar, pens, highlighters; everything I need to sit sand study, or just be with the Lord.
You will find that having a special place set aside for your study will cause you to want to go there. It will be your place to talk with the Lord, to journal your thoughts, to pray, and to listen. Here are links to some study helps:

So we have the “place”, we have a “bookcase” for all of our study needs, we have a “study Bible”, we have a “notebook” along with “pens and highlighters”. Now decorate a little with flowers, pictures, pillows, etc. Something to add a touch of beauty.

If you sing up today with your email, I will send you this “freebie”. It is a prettier version of, Five Questions to Ask When you Study a Passage of Scripture.
FIVE QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN STUDYING A PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE:
1-What do I learn about God from this passage?
2-Is there a warning for me about something; a sin for me to avoid?
3-Is there a promise for me to claim and trust God with?
4-Is there a truth about myself in this passage?
5-Are there specific things I can praise God about in this passage?
So make it your goal to establish your special “spot” for study this week!
-Decide on the place
-Add a bookcase for your books
-Gather your study materials: Bible, notebook, commentaries, pens, highlighters, etc.
-Add a special pillow, throw, or picture
