Bible Reading Plan

Helping you grow in Christ

How to Use the Life Journal

Step 1

Create your own Life Journal using a blank notebook or journal.

Step 2

Find the scriptures for today in the Daily Bible Reading Schedule below. (It’s okay if you have a different reading plan. What matters most is that you have a plan and stick to it. If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail!)

Step 3

Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you regarding the scriptures you are about to read. Read them with an open heart and the Spirit will give you words of encouragement, direction and correction.

Step 4

When the Holy Spirit gives you a life lesson, turn to a fresh page in your journal to record what He has just shown you using the S.O.A.P. method.

 

  1. Write today’s date.
  2. Give your lesson a title. (This can sometimes come after your journaling is done.)
  3. Write down the main Scripture. (Scripture)
  4. Write what you see in the Scripture. (Observation)
  5. Write how you will be different today because of what you have just read. (Application)
  6. Write out your prayer. (Prayer)

Step 5

Take a moment to sit before the Lord to meditate on what you’ve just journaled about. Pray your prayer to the Lord and then look for ways that day to apply what you’ve learned in real life.

Remember

This Life Journal is designed to serve you in your growth with Christ. You can be flexible in how you use it, but be sure to develop a healthy habit of spending time daily with the Lord. 

Some have asked, “When is the best time for my devotions? In the morning or in the evening?” Our answer to that is, “The best time is when you’re at your best!” If you’re a morning person, do your devotions in the morning. If you’re an evening person, do your devotions at night.

The bottom line is: Jesus deserves your best, so give Him the best part of your day!
