I was born in the Philippines. So, usually, everyone here once born in the Philippines automatic your Catholic. And, the Philippines is the only Asian country 80% are Catholics the rest are other religion. Need to baptist and have your first communion at the age of 7 up. That’s the traditional Catholic where my parents are. And, I was in Catholic School from Nursery to High School our superior or let say principles are priest and sisters, some our teachers as well. Anyway, how we have to memorize the Rosary, Commandments and all prayers. Oh, luckily when I was in High School they remove the Spanish language which you have to memorize a prayer in Spanish that’s hard. But, I have learned Spanish to my mom, because they have Spanish blood and they talk, sing and pray Spanish as well when my grandma is still alive. So, even every day we hold, bring and read the bible I just knew that I don’t really get what is the message all about, I just know we have to do it because of our school. In our real life, we don’t much talk about the religion even to our friends as well, sometimes they disagreed with our belief and faith. Even ourselves do we really know who is our creator is? Because I’m still confused reading passages/scriptures in the Bible sometimes I don’t know what does in a mean. Now, I read the bible once when I think I was in Elementary, while when your kid and you bring the bible that is so big and thick for sure you won’t read. That time they don’t yet invent the pocket bible, electronic etc. that is easy to access now.
In this generation, everything in electronics. Even a prayer from our creator is already available on the internet. So, from elementary, I already forgot the everything I learned about the bible or our creator itself. So, I decided to do my quiet time every day at least read the bible for a 2-4 chapter a day. Which I find this interesting website that you will certainly like it if you confused about your belief and faith.
I started reading the bible last September (2017) It really helped me understand the bible thoroughly not just reading it, I also write some notes or verses that touch my senses.
Every Gospel/Book I finished reading I put some space for the verses that touch me much.
I’m still on progress in reading the bible. (Gospel of Mathew)
Some of the sites will also help you to understand every scripture in the bible to guide.
Prayers that would you like to try as well.
