Lately, I’ve been starting my mornings by opening the blinds of my second-story bedroom window and then stand there looking out toward the sunrise. Praise and thankfulness naturally happen once my gaze is fixed skyward. This is my brief early morning prayer time. Even if it’s only a very few minutes it seems to get my day going in the right direction. Next, I usually have a short time of Bible reading and scripture writing. Then I head downstairs for coffee!

How about you?

What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

Please share in the comment section below.

Bible

Psalm 119

We are beginning week 3 of scripture writing on the topic of God’s Word.

As you open your Bible to Psalm 119, I hope you will choose to spend plenty of time in this beautiful Psalm. We could have based the entire two month long scripture writing plan on this one Psalm. Please consider writing out more verses from Psalm 119 than what are listed on the plan.

The entire purpose of Psalm 119 is to show the value and greatness of God’s word. It is not only the longest chapter in the book of Psalms but the longest chapter in the entire Bible. Here you will find different words used to refer to God’s word. In the particular translation I am reading (NKJV), I find many different words for God’s word. Here are some of the words.

  • statutes
  • precepts
  • commandments
  • testimonies
  • way

What words do you find for God’s word?

Plan to spend time this week and beyond in this amazing Psalm. Perhaps read it in more than one translation, select some words to do a word study, meditate on the verses and let it guide you in prayer.

The longest chapter in the Bible is proclaiming the greatness of God’s word!

How does that change your perspective on spending time in God’s word and scripture writing.

Open my eyes that I might see wondrous things from Your law.   
~Psalm 119:18

Scripture Writing – Week 2

Welcome to week 2 of the June and July Scripture Writing Plan.

How did you like the first week of the plan? Did you write more verses than what are listed on the plan each day? I found that reading the surrounding verses to understand the context usually resulted in my choosing to write out a few more verses. After writing the verses I like to underline or circle key words and make a few notes in my notebook. Also finding this scripture writing activity to be a helpful guide for praying.

I’m really enjoying this theme of God’s Word. How about you? Please share something about your scripture writing experience in the comments below.

Be sure to download a copy of the plan, grab a notebook along with your Bible and join us in the Psalms this week.

Starts Today

June 1, 2020

Today is the start of the June and July scripture writing plan. The theme is God’s Word.

Reading the Bible can be compared to eating food. Here are a few of the ways and you can probably think of more.

  • Needed daily
  • Provides nourishment
  • Should be chewed well
  • Needs to be digested

Scripture writing helps you to slow down and focus on a single verse or small portion of scripture. Slowing down gives more opportunity to notice things that might have been missed before. You will find that the practice of writing scripture will help you listen carefully for what God is saying through His word.

Let’s enter the month of June with a plan for writing out Bible verses and then continue on through July. The theme of the plan is God’s Word.

Reading the scripture for the day and then writing it is such a rewarding practice. There are many reasons to love scripture writing and the verses selected for the June and July plan highlight many of these. You will immediately notice that it causes you to slow down, absorb the words and meditate on the verses as you go through the day.

Later there will be a follow-up blog post about scripture writing. But for now download your free plan, find a notebook and choose the time of day you will be writing.
