This is my prayer and desire for those I love–stay on track; stay steady in God.
Philippians 4:1 (The Message)
My dear, dear friends! I love you so much. I do want the very best for you. You make me feel such joy, fill me with such pride. Don’t waver. Stay on track, steady in God.
Here’s how it works: Read the verses and pray about them. Is there a word or phrase the jumps out at you? Is there a picture that comes to mind? Do the verses remind you of something in your life? Draw a picture or write the words and let the Holy Spirit guide your thoughts.
Why study the Bible this way? If you take it into your mind and heart enough to translate it into a picture or word, it becomes part of you. If you add a sentence or two of explanation, you then engage another part of your brain which cements God’s words even firmer into your heart and mind.
