Experience God in His Word daily

  • Read the Bible through in one year
  • Speed read a book of the Bible
  • Write scripture . . . and interact with God on the paper
  • Repeat read a portion of scripture, every day for a week, slowly, thoughtfully
  • Read a chapter expressively, i.e., Isaiah 53
  • Memorize meaningful chapters
  • Sing scripture songs
  • Carry with you Bible promise cards on a ring, read while waiting
  • Search the scriptures for the top 10 values by which to live
  • Search Jesus’ life to learn how to minister to others

Pray daily

  • At home, alone . . . and with your family
  • Pray at work . . . in the halls, in the offices
  • Find a prayer partner, pray often together
  • Feel free to ask a co-worker for prayer
  • When someone asks for prayer, pray right then
  • Pray over your To Do List, for God’s priorities
  • Pray over your project of the moment
  • Pray scriptures
  • Invite the Holy Spirit to dwell in your heart and to pray FOR you

Share a testimony daily  

When you spend time in God's Word and in prayer, you WILL have a testimony. It just happens.

  • What God gave you in His Word today
  • How God is changing you through His Word and His Spirit
  • How God answered your prayer
  • A need for which you would like prayer support, expressing trust and thanksgiving for God’s answer that will come
  • Share with your family/kids, work associates, neighbors, seatmate on the airplane, anyone you spend time with
  • Organize sharing partnerships, triads, small groups that meet during lunch to share your testimonies

So . . . if like Jonah you find yourself running away from God or you are simply drifting away or sinking in a sea of busy-ness, call out to God. Ask Him to bring you back to Him . . . back to where you will find true balance for your life!
