Being a young person in today’s world is sometimes confusing, stressful, and overwhelming. Personally, I rely on my faith as a Christian to keep me grounded and help me handle my everyday life. My Bible has become sort of a road map to my life, and I constantly find myself looking forward to the time I get to spend in the Word studying what God is saying to me.
However, I understand how big and scary the Bible can seem sometimes. I used to really struggle with just where to start, and how I could spend time reading the Word on an everyday basis. With a little help from my church and friends, I’ve gotten advice and found some resources that help me to dive into the Word and study the Bible on a regular basis.
Maybe you are currently in that situation. Below are some Bible verses that explain just how vital reading your Bible daily is that helped me to focus my energy on this aspect of my Christianity.
Psalm 119:11 “I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”
Job 23:12 “I have not departed from the commandment of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my portion of food.”
John 15:7 “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”
Job treasured the Bible and God’s word more than food because she understood that the Bible gave her eternal life and motivation to face every day. I love that.
I’ve compiled some of my favorite bible study tools for young women below. All of these resources are things that I personally use in my own walk with the Lord and have found to be extremely helpful. I hope they accomplish the same thing for you.
My Favorite Bible Study Tools + Resources for Young Women
1. Christian Books
There is no shortage of Christian books out there! I have read a decent amount of books but I feel like I’ve barely scraped the surface of all the resources and bible study tools out there. I love having a great book to read right before I head off to sleep to refocus and spend time with God before I close out the day.
Some of my favorite Christian books I’ve read so far are:
You can seriously get lost in the Christian books section of any bookstore (or Amazon.com) I love reading books by people from all walks of life, from all over the globe, but all serving the same God. There is a book for any season of life you may be going through. It’s also fun to trade books with girlfriends and family members to help each other in their walk. I have a couple friends that often recommend me books to watch, and I love knowing they want to share with me.
*If you have a Christian book suggestion, please comment and tell me about it! I am always looking for something new to read.*
2. She Reads Truth
If you don’t use She Reads Truth already…please stop reading this blog post right now and go get hip. She Reads Truth is a resource that has greatly impacted my own personal walk with God this year.
She Reads Truth is a website with daily devotionals written in the form of a short blog post, with bible readings linked to the post. There is also room for other women to comment on the daily devotional and discuss the study with each other. She Reads Truth is also an app, and they also have a store where you can purchase some studies in physical book form.
Before this year at college, I struggled a lot with spending time daily in the Word. I prayed to God throughout the day, but days would go by without me reading my Bible. I felt disconnected from God’s commands and empty.
She Reads Truth has helped me to get into a daily routine of reading the Word and getting my daily bread. I absolutely love the devotionals that SRT offers, and frequently find myself forwarding messages to my mom because of just how good they are. Below are some Bible verses that explain just how vital reading your Bible daily is.
The comment section of SRT is a place for women from all over and come together and lay their burdens on each other openly, and it’s great. Personally, I love reading and knowing what is going on with my fellow Christian sisters, regardless of whether I know them in my daily life.
I absolutely love this Bible study tool and how relevant it is to my current season of life.
3. Holy Bible App
I originally got this free app as a resource to have on the go, so that I could have access to the entire Bible on the go. However, this app is has a lot more to offer than just the Bible itself and has become one of my favorite Bible study tools. I have found some GREAT studies in this app, and love the simple layout of it. The app also makes it super easy to highlight and bookmark texts and even single verses to revisit later.
I particularly like the “Verse of the Day” image, which is exactly what it sounds like. I am a visual learner, and seeing the Word of God in a pretty, aesthetically pleasing image is really helpful for me. The pictures can also be saved and used as phone lock screens, which I like! You can browse through the Bible app’s studies by category, like Dating, Anxiety, Jealousy and more. There are tons of studies in this app…I doubt you will ever get bored or run out of content here.
