I wish whatever people follow this blog could know and see and hear everything that I have been experiencing since my last post. And yet, when I think about writing it out, I find a hesitation… that not all of it is meant to be shared… that the time is not right… that I don’t yet have the words. And then I wonder if those are just excuses because I’m too busy.
Lord, please grant that I may follow Your leading ever and ever more closely!
And so today, I have just a small little bit to share.
Many of you have probably heard of the routine where you read a chapter in Proverbs every day, corresponding to that day of the month.
I’ve done it a few times in my life, but when I tried it again last month, I found myself feeling like I was trying to absorb a waterfall of wisdom with a teacup.
And then the Lord gave me an idea.
Instead of reading the whole chapter, read just the first 4-5 verses.
So that’s what I did. I pondered them. I asked Him what they meant. I followed references and wrote in my journal about what the Spirit showed me.
And I got so much more out of it!
Now that it is a new month, guess what I’m doing? Yep, I’m picking up in verse 5 or 6 (depending on how they’re grouped. It doesn’t matter, of course, if I re-read a verse!) And I’m reading to verse 8 or 9.
Do you want more wisdom? Do you find a whole chapter difficult to get a lot out of? Maybe this method will work for you, too.
