Quiet Time Tip – Grab Your Highlighters!

Here’s my quiet time tip of the week. When you read your Bible grab a highlighter and get marking! Here is what the book of Proverbs looks like in my Bible. And if you saw my last two Bibles they look identical. Why?
Because I struggle with words and my use of them. I long to be a wise woman.
Proverbs 13:3 says “He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.”So, I highlighted every single verse on speech in the book of Proverbs with a pink highlighter. You can do this in your Bible with anything you are struggling with or looking to focus in on and learn.
Proverbs is also a great book of the Bible to read one chapter a day in. There are 31 chapters – so you can read one chapter each day of the month. Since today is the 17th of June, you would read Proverbs 17 today. And tomorrow read Proverbs 18 and go according to the date. And the end of the month, start over and read it again!
Think of the wisdom you will gain! Pray the Proverbs over your husband, children and yourself. Mark other key words with other colors of highlighters. Drink up God’s word and Live Well!

Walk with the King!
Resource Suggestion: If you are looking to understand Bible basics there is a brand new website that was begun by other mommy bloggers and students of the word titled Scripture Dig. They have been writing on topics such as: How We Got to 66 Books, What All the Different Versions of the Bible Are, and What the True Timeline of the Books of the Bible Are. If you have some questions about the background of the Bible and the basics of the faith – this is a great blog to visit.

  1. Hi Courtney,

    Thanks for sharing the tip! I read a Proverbs a day for the past 2 years (haven’t in the past few months, though… switched to Psalms to complement my regular reading) its amazing how they start to get ingrained in your mind after reading through them so many times. In the midst of a situation requiring wisdom, a Proverb will pop in my head … i know that’s the work of the Holy Spirit. I read somewhere (perhaps on here??) that memorizing Scripture is like increasing the Holy Spirit’s vocabulary in your life… perhaps reading and rereading the Proverbs does the same thing :)

  2. This is what my Bible looks like too!


  3. Good tips! I love to use colored pencils and color code things when I read!

  4. I LOVE scripture dig too, each day I am discovering new things and diffeernt ways to look at things I thought I knew!
    Have a great weekend :)
