Treasured Tokens Thursday

...and the very first token I should have shared is The Bible. This past year, especially, has been a blessing because I am reading through the Bible for the first time - every word. I haven't been consistent, much to my sadness, but I'm doing it. My next step is to begin again, but this time I'm going to take a book from the Bible and actually study it, so going through again will take much longer. I might even take a subject and study that. But just reading and really studying are totally different things and I'm excited to go deeper. I do my Bible studies and things like that, but to really delve in myself will be a challenge. I'm easily distracted and I'm not sure how I'm going to do this. Any suggestions?

I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread. Job 23:12

And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe. 1 Thess. 2:13

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 1 John 2:5

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ” Matthew 4:4

For no word from God will ever fail.” Luke 1:37

He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” Luke 11:28

As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. Psalm 18:30

In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? Psalm 56:4

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” Isaiah 40:8

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105
