Reading scripture goes hand in hand with prayer. This is how God speaks to us. Scripture tells us the truth about who God is and who we are. This is vital to managing your depression. You must know how God sees you!
Here are a few of my favorite resources for reading and studying scripture:
- GoodMorningGirls.org – Bible study and accountability with other women
- YouVersion.com – Wonderful online Bible and community notes
- Logos – Desktop and mobile apps for further study
I'm currently going through 1 John with Good Morning Girls. I love connecting on Twitter and through blogs with other ladies who are reading 1 John with me. I use the SOAP method in a notebook along with You Version and Logos to really dive into the passage each day.
