Daily Bible reading is an excellent way to both record and process what God has spoken to us. It's also a useful tool to use at a later time, to reflect on and review some of the 'gems' that you have received. Without writing them down, you may forget those blessings and some very important lessons! And while journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your daily journaling with your small group or mentors. Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight and even encourage others. We invite you to join us in a small group to discuss what you have read during your daily reading.

  1. Find the Scriptures for today in the Bible Reading Plan

  2. Read the passage of scriptures.  Read with an open heart and Jesus will speak to your heart.  He will give you words of encouragement, direction, and correction.                                All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.  2 Timothy 3:16 (NKJV)

  3. When a scripture speaks to your heart, then record what speaks to you in a notebook or journal.

  • Write today's date.

  • Give your life lesson a title.

  • Write down the main scripture.

  • Write what you see in the scripture.

  • Write down how the scripture applies to you personally.  Write down what God is saying to you.

  • Lastly, write a prayer to God in response to what He has just spoken to you.  Thank Him for speaking to you, commit to do what He has asked you to do or not to do.  

  • Ask yourself, "How will I be different because of what I have just read in the bible?
