Welcome.  This a journey.  My journey.  Walk with me as I seek encounters with God in His Word.  I will laugh, marvel, cry, scream, smile, pout, be silent, frown, … But above all, I will pray.  May my journey bless yours.

This is a journal of my personal Bible devotion.  It follows the S. O. A. P. format from Life Journal.  (Most of the time anyway, since it is only a guide.)  Often times the Observation and Application will overlap.  Other times I may just go freeform and ramble.


for Scripture
Open your Bible. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.


for Observation
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this Scripture down in your own words in your journal.


for Application
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this Scripture can apply to you today.


for Prayer
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this Scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.
