PSALMS MINI SERIES: DO YOU USE S.O.A.P.? READING THROUGH PSALMS IN 30 DAYS
If you read my previous blog and watched my video from earlier titled “Where is God Trying to Lead Me” then you know that starting a ministry has been weighing heavy on my heart for quite some time now. I have tried my best to keep my religious views, beliefs, and opinions off of my vlog even though being a Christian is a big part of my life and how I live it. I have decided that bringing a healthy dose of religion on my blog isn’t bad and that if some of my readers don’t like these types of post then they can simply skip over them.
With that being said, I have decided to start a new mini series on my blog for 30 days!
This new mini series will follow the S.O.A.P. method (which will be explained in more detail a little further down) and I will be reading, praying, and blogging through the entire book of Psalms. I have ALWAYS thought that Psalms was the most beautiful book in the Bible. I have ALWAYS been drawn to this particular book but I have never just sat down and read it from beginning to end. So often when I find a verse of encouragement, or when I’m looking for a verse of the day, Psalms just “pops” out to me. I really love that book.
So for the next 30 days I will be studying and reading the book of Psalms and I would love for you all to join in with me.
I will try to post my daily S.O.A.P. journal entries. What is S.O.A.P. you ask?
S: Scripture: Out of the daily reading I will write down the one scripture that stands out to me; that I feel God is trying to point out to me.
O: Observation: I will apply my reading to see why God chose to make this scripture stand out to me.
A: Application: I will then take that day’s reading and that day’s scripture and figure out how I can apply it to my life.
P: Prayer: I will pray that God guides me in the right direction so that I can apply that scripture effectively to my life in the way that He sees fit.
I plan on writing this out each day, for thirty days, while I’m reading through Psalms. I will also try, if time and my children allow, to post my S.O.A.P. entries on my website so that you too may be able to reflect with me. I would love it even more if each of you would participate in the comments with your own S.O.A.P. entries. I believe whole heartedly in the scripture:
“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there among them.” Matthew 18:20
There are 150 chapters in the Book of Psalms. Because this is a thirty day challenge I plan on reading five chapters each day for thirty days. If you have 15-20 minutes a day to devote to reading the book of Psalms with me I would love for you to join me as well. I need a positive group of women who will uplift each other in prayer, support, and encouragement. There is so much negative already that I want to make this something positive.
So join me on Monday, May 9th thru Tuesday, June 7th in my journey on reading the book of Psalms.
