Read Through the Psalms and Proverbs Every Month: There is no downside from doing this, none, nada, zip! Here is how to do it so easy, just so easy to do!
There are 31, 30, or 28 days each month of the year. There are 31 proverbs each easily read in five minutes. Read the proverb for that particular day, for example July 2, you read Proverbs 2.
The Psalms can be completed the same way only you will read three or four Psalms a day since there are 150 Psalms. Some are short, some are long and some are in between. This can be done in twenty minutes or less each day. This being July 2 you read the 2nd Psalm, then add 30 and read the 32nd Psalm add 30 again and read the 62nd Psalm, then the 92nd, then the 122nd.
So following this technique you have read Proverbs 2, and Psalms 2,32,62,92, and 122 for a total of five Psalms and one Proverb. Prayer and meditation will happen as the Lord inspires and you are open to it. Enjoy!
Understanding and Fear: Life is understood looking back but it is lived looking ahead. Always do what you are afraid to do!
Be Anxious for Nothing: ” Be anxious for nothing but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honest, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report, if there be any virtue, if there be any praise…think upon these things. Philippians 4:6-8
So what do you muse about, think about, wrestle with in your mind and heart? Well Paul tells us these are the things we should be directing our thoughts toward. The good not the bad, the beautiful, not the ugly, the honest, not the lies.
