At Vertical Church, our hope is that you wouldn't simply attend church, but also hear from God daily through His Word. As we read the Bible, we see how God responds to things. Daily devotions re-pattern the way we think, transform the spirit of our mind, and help us become more like Jesus.
S.O.A.P. journaling is a simple way to both record and process what God has spoken to you. It’s also a useful tool to use at a later time when you want to reflect on and review some of the ‘gems’ that you have received.
Without writing them down, you may forget those blessings and important revelation. Furthermore, while journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your daily journaling with your community or spouse, so having a written record becomes very important. Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight, and even encourage others.
All you need to begin is a Bible, pen and journal!
