The devotional book titled, “A Guide to Prayer” has been a great companion on this journey of daily time with the Lord. It gives a daily psalm, scripture reading and reading for reflection for the day. This is a great guide for someone starting out on a journey of daily time. For three years I did the One-Year Bible and it was fantastic. It got be deep into scripture each day and provided a grounding for my faith.
A simple exercise for getting something out of scripture is SOAP. Write out one verse of Scripture in your journal that stood out in your reading. Write out your Observation of the text. Next write a few sentences on how it Applies to your life, and finally Pray and thank the Lord and ask Him to remind you of His Word throughout the day.
