About VerseNotes

In 2016, I started sharing posts about my daily devotional on Twitter whenever I thought I had something worth sharing. They started with simple observations and encouragements, intended to show my few followers some of what I had seen.

Eventually, I had more to say than Twitter could contain, so beginning in 2018, I broke free of the 140-character constraint and started blogging. This is VerseNotes.

The guiding lights of VerseNotes are, naturally, two verses of Scripture. First, the unnamed psalmist declaring his utter delight in Scripture:

Blessed is the man…
[whose] delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
—Psalm 1:1–2

And second, the anonymous author of Hebrews urging his audience to get into the Word in a serious way:

Therefore, let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity.
—Hebrews 6:1

My purpose here is simple: regardless of who you are or where you are, beginner or expert, I want to help you delight in every verse of the Word of God.
