  • Scripture

    Read today’s passage(s)

    In this step, read today's passage and ask God to highlight a specific verse or two to you. Then, write that verse down in the journal of your choice.


    Observation

    Write down what you see in the Scripture

    Now, take some time to write down some things about your selected verse or two that are important. What is God saying to you through those verses? What do you see is important in those verses?


    Application

    Write how you will be different today because of what you have just read

    How do these verses apply to your life today? What will you do or change or keep doing? Don't worry about being profound, most of our growth occurs in the small, daily things of life!


    Prayer

    Write out your prayer

    We need the help of the Holy Spirit. Take a few minutes to write out your prayer requesting God's help with how you are applying his word to your life today.
