• “Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that Jesus is Victor.” – Basilea Schlink

Write in Your Bible by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/05/12

Pastor: A lot of times when I’m doing a eulogy at a funeral and the person has served the Lord, I ask to see their Bible. I love to read what they’ve written in the margins and see what God has shown them over the years.

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: If you ever have a hard time concentrating when you’re reading God’s Word, you may want to take some notes in the margin of your Bible.

I like to do this when the Lord uses a verse or passage to address a specific need in my life, or when He encourages or convicts my heart in an unusual way. Sometimes I’ll write down the date and city where I was when this personal encounter with God’s Word took place.

Or I may use the margins to write down personal responses to the truth, such as, “Yes, Lord” or “Make this be true in my life.”

If you find it hard to focus when you’re reading the Bible, you may find it helpful to make some notes in the margin. By doing that, a Bible can tell the story of your personal journey of faith.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink
