“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me- put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:9
In my last blog I related Bob Merritt’s idea of establishing predictable rhythms in your life. Pastor Merritt says that requires establishing those rhythms, or what Kurt Senske refers to as rituals, in specific areas of your life. One of these areas is your soul.
Bob states that we have to find a specific place where we routinely meet God, so that this practice becomes a normal part of daily life, something we don’t have to think about doing.
He suggests a Bible reading plan, but not necessarily the type where you read the entire Bible in one year. If you happen to get too far behind, you might give up entirely. He describes his objective as follows: “The goal in reading your Bible is . . . to sit a few minutes with God and soak in his wisdom. . . . It’s not a race, it’s a relationship.”
