Greetings and Salutations Doll Friends!
In case you haven't read my bio or prior blog posts, you may not know that I am a pretty big Jesus Groupie. I love Jesus. He saved my life. If you're interested in what I mean by that, despite it making me nervous to do so, I'll post a linky here of my testimony. Why nervous? Well, because it's some stuff that is totally not doll related and kind of a mess. However, it's not my place to say how God uses my story, right? Since it's been posted there for years, it's not like it's hard to find eitherwise. Eh? So, naturally, since I became a Christian again, the Bible came alive to me... My favorite Gospel is John... I love how he talks!
I've read the Bible twice now all the way through (The One Year Bible, it's totally do-able!) and done numerous studies. I only bring this up because that can only be God! I've never been a studier in my whole life. Haha. The first thing I do in the morning, before yoga, before coffee, before my quiet time to blog (like I am right now) I read my devotional and portion of the The One Year Bible. I plan to read it through every year until God calls me home... Since it is such a huge and wonderful part of my life, it only makes sense that I do a post about quiet devotional Bible Study time for the Dolls, right?
One thing you learn when you read the Bible is that Jesus Himself often went off to be alone with Father God. I've found it's the only way to really 'hear His voice' consistently is to make that time alone with Him. I may not get some deep booming voice from the sky but I never walk away from my quiet time with Him without having some good come from it...
I've posted before about Life Group at the Dollhouse because that's important too... Talking about it all with friends and having a church family. I have been playing with the idea of setting up a church service at the Doll House... I just need to figure out which doll would be the preacher. Haha.
So, if you've never heard the Good News, I highly recommend reading the Gospel. It's only four pretty short books and I guarantee, if you let it, it will change your life. I don't mean to put you off if you're stumbled into this blog and 'Jesus talk' makes you uncomfortable. It did me for a long time too... Once I finally let it sink into me, well, I can't help but talk about Jesus... Because, as I said, He saved my life.
May God Bless you today.
Till Next Time,
