I’ve never done a Bible Study Braindump until this morning. I felt so swept away by my Bible study I found myself thinking about it hours later. Not just thinking about it but, moved by it. I believe it’s not a bad thing and actually, see it as a step forward in my Faith.
It’s been almost 2 years since the start of my walk with God, and this has never happened to me. Well, not to this level at least. The moment I realized that I had all these provoking thoughts running around my brain, I knew I had to write them down. They definitely had to mean something. So here I am sharing my first Bible Study Braindump with you!
What’s a Braindump?
First, let me explain a braindump. It’s basically where you’re brain is being overloaded with a bunch of thoughts, and you put them all on paper. Many people will later sort through them, and pick out the important things to move forward with. Normally I dump it and come back in a week or so and see what I dumped. Important things get attention while other stuff stays there on my dump page.
So after my Bible study this morning, I found myself in a braindump situation and took the cue to write. Turned out it was some pretty good stuff and I hope somewhere someone might find it useful.
Bible Study Braindump
Here’s what I wrote:
I’ve always felt like what I do isn’t enough, that I am not smart enough, pretty enough, or strong enough. Basically, never enough. Pretty much most of my life I’ve felt this way, and often find myself slipping down the “not good enough” rabbit hole from time to time.
But over time I’ve learned to grasp onto things to keep myself from slipping down. I know I’ll probably slip again, it’s a given. But it’s different now, I have someone strong hanging on to me, keeping me grounded. I have my Lord, Father, Savior, The King of Kings, and Creator keeping me steady. Wow, that’s pretty amazing after re-reading what I just wrote. But more importantly, I understand and know it to be true.

So when those slippy-slope feelings start to sneak in I can go to battle with God’s truth about who I am. God created me, He chose me, and has a plan for me. I am His daughter, a child of the King of Kings. What? Yes, Deb, you were made for a reason, with a reason, and God has a plan for you. I may not think I am good enough, but God sure thought I was.
God Created Me – Psalm 139:13
God Chose Me – Ephesians 1:5
For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. – Psalm 139:13
He predestined us to be adopted as sons through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will. – Ephesians 1:5
That’s what I wrote for my Bible Study Briandump. A year ago, I wouldn’t know how to respond to all this. But today, wowzers! I have prayed for a moment like this when I’d just get it, and I’d be completely moved by a verse. God is so amazing, honestly, I have been brought to tears twice today. Because I’ve finally had that overwhelming feeling of God. Amen, to that!!
Bible Study Braindump – Final Thoughts
What part of my Bible study moved me so much? It was when reading the verses mentioned above. I finally got it, well actually God made sure I understood.
I am a child of God, He created me, on purpose, for a reason. How could I continue to allow myself to feel like I wasn’t enough? Especially after God so gently but excitingly pointed it out to me, that I am enough! Seriously, I wished I could really put into words how it felt. Honestly, I don’t ever want that feeling to go away either.
This experience this morning has touched me in so many ways. So many questions were answered and I didn’t realize it until now as I write this blog article. God, does work in mysterious ways. He answers our prayers in His own time when He feels we can handle the answers. There is so much more to learn about The One who created me. I want to learn, know as much as I can about Him too!
I am thankful that God has led you here today. 2020 is going to be a big year for me I feel it, and for Faith Crafts and Coffee! I will be sharing more Bible Study Braindumps, Bible Journaling and Bible Study Plans and so much more! Bookmark us and come back often!
