Then you can sing scripture and get scripture memorized in your head. Luther called the Psalter (another name for the book of Psalms) a "little bible." In the New Testament alone, the book of Psalms is quoted 127 times, more than any other book in the Old Testament.
There is tons of wonderful theology in the Psalms. They are a wonderful comfort for all types of human emotions an situations. They are full of prayers to God and praise to God, that are the inspired Word of God.
Here's an idea (it worked for my husband)
If you need spiritual exercise as well as physical exercise...get a copy of the Bible on cassette or CD and get to stepping ) MAKE time every day to walk at least 30 minutes and while you are taking care of your physical body you spiritual body is getting a "shot in the arm" so to speak )
You said "I am hoping to order a Hymnal with the older songs which are theology and that the Lord would strengthen me with these songs and encourage me to get more serious since I need the Word of God to be more of a part of my life as to show myself approved of the Lord." The book of Psalms is filled with songs )
I will pray that God will fill you with the desire for Him as well as the discipline to follow through!
In His Service!Jenn
I am ashamed how much I need the Word of God in my life and take his grace of getting to know the Lord better through his word so lightly, which I don't brag of.
I am hoping to order a Hymnal with the older songs which are theology and that the Lord would strengthen me with these songs and encourage me to get more serious since I need the Word of God to be more of a part of my life as to show myself approved of the Lord.
Pray for me to get this taken care of as soon as possible, plus some physical exercise for me would be a very good thing too.
