“He explained, “When I was younger I was influenced by the preachers who taught whatever they taught.

7 tips for learning biblical Hebrew from Miles Van Pelt
“Tip 6: Get enough sleep every night Another important tip for studying Hebrew is to make sure you get enough sleep every night for your brain to be working properly the next day. I understand that one of the biggest temptations is to stay up late and to get up early—and minimize your sleep. The problem is your brain needs rest in order to memorize and understand things.

Hide, Replenish, and Go
“I am tired. Over the past year, I have found myself being stretched thin and out of energy. I tend to overwork myself and overload myself with productive tasks. However, I also find myself running on more energy than I have on my own. The last few months have awakened my need for hiding and resting.

I realize I cannot do this on my own and it does not come naturally for me to rely on someone else. I have set out to discipline myself in three things: hiding in Scripture, being replenished in Scripture, and being sent by Scripture.”
