Y’all I’ve been slacking the past few days, but I’m back like cooked crack! LOL.
The goal of the #SBC30DayFaith Prayer Journaling Challenge is for us to really push to build our faith through practical obedience to God the entire month of January. Watch this video from Fatima to learn more about it.
We’re using the S.O.A.P. Bible Study Method for the challenge. We’re reading and meditating on a scripture provided by Fatima each day and then break it down using the S.O.A.P. Method.
The S.O.A.P. Method simply stands for:
SCRIPTURE – Write down the scripture in your journal.
OBSERVATION – Go deeper, what does the scripture mean/what is it all about? Look into the chapter the scripture is in as well for context.
APPLICATION – How can you apply it to your life?
PRAYER – Write out a prayer aligned with the scripture and then pray it out loud.
And das it!
So today is DAY 15 of the challenge and I wanna share with you my journal entry. I’m going to commit to sharing my journaling every single day this month so you can join in and follow along my journey.
1 Peter 3:9
Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will grant you his blessing.
We are representations of Christ so we can’t be out here looking like and blending in with the world. Instead of getting upset and doing something just as bad as the other party involved, check yourself. Be kind to your enemies too! Show them the love of God. Get them to experience the truth and the light.
I’m going to show love and kindness to everyone, regardless of how they treat me. I want to be a blessing to everyone that I cross paths with.
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for your word and a roadmap showing us how we should live. Thank you for never leaving my side despite any evil that I’ve done in the past. Lord, thank you for showing me how to love others. I pray that everyday I become more and more like you. Teach me how to guard my tongue and actions when people are treating me poorly. Show me what to do, give me the words to speak on a daily basis. I want to be a light and a blessing to EVERYONE I meet and interact with. I pray for those who may struggle in this area. Give them a clean heart father. Reveal to them that their ways are not of you. I thank you for all the major shifts that are about to take place in my life and the lives of others. I love you God! Amen!
I pray that this has blessed you as it has blessed me and I challenge you to join me! Click here to learn more and get started TODAY.
Now let’s talk about it. What’s something that you need to implement into your life that will draw you closer to God? Do you use a prayer journal? Sound off in the comments, I wanna hear from you!
P.S. If you thought that this was insanely awesome or made you think about someone that you know, please share this with them!
