The Journey to the Cross: A Lenten Devotional Study
I haven't been able to do the Lenten Devotional as quickly as I wished. I enjoy it a lot, though. Just getting started, really, and I'm sure I'll have more to say after I'm finished.
I am enjoying the Lenten Study so much. Journaling each day with days of word study, Bible mapping and scripture memory is keeping me on my toes, eager to dig in deeper.
I am so grateful to have “found” the James Method of Verse Mapping! Thank you for sharing the journal as a digital journal as well as the beautiful printed version. The generosity of our Lord and His desires are definitely manifest here. Oh I just LOVE the layout! I splurged on heavier paper for printing and have absolutely no regrets. When I can I will “splurge” on one of the beautifully printed journals, but for now, I’m just so very grateful. I felt nudged to “map” the verse(s) I memorize each week and find that it is truly a gift of the Spirit!
I discovered TJM, specifically verse mapping, a year ago and I have really enjoyed incorporating this tool/practice into my study of Scripture! I was really excited when I saw that the TJM team had created a study for Lent.
This might have already been brought to their attention, but the QR code in the Lent study for the Word Study video says that it has reached its monthly limit. Fortunately, I was able to find the video by going directly to the YouTube page:)
The other day was the first time I used the word study tool. I was thankful to have a video to help explain the process, along with the example you included from John for “commandment.” While I have used BLB for quite a some time now (before I discovered TJM), I did find it hard to figure out how the TJM team used it to fill out the word study. (I spent about 30 minutes trying to find how to find/use the lexicon feature since there are multiple places that are labeled “lexicon.” I was using the “commandment” example to figure out where the list of words in the lexicon box came from). I’m wondering if it might be helpful to include screenshots from BLB for how you fill in each box for the word study? Or maybe even create a screen recording of navigating through BLB specifically for the word study? Not sure if this is helpful feedback or not, but I thought I would share this in case it might help someone else down the road as they try to use the TJM tools.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful creation of the Lent study and for sharing resources that root us in Scripture :)
