Jay, that is AWESOME!! I just picked back up THE DIVINE MENTOR (started reading it right after the commissioning service in March, but I got side-tracked...imagine that...)and I can't wait to read about the SOAP method. Chris and I both have renewed the commitment to gather our manna each day, and are being very intentional about it, by getting up an hour earlier each morning. I can honestly say it's the best thing we've ever done. Thanks for the reminder that we can't live on moldy bread, and that we are EXPECTED to gather fresh bread every day. (Had heard that before in a Beth Moore study, but I definitely needed the refresher course!!) Have a great week, buddy!

Jay, amazing how God is working in your life. I recently have began jounaling for the first time and it has been one of the toughest things for me. I am going to use what you said and I will let you know how it goes.

By the way #5 from last Friday was awesome. It has tore these people in the upstate all to pieces.

Presently... I try not to set my reading to lofty... If I tell myself to read 2 chapters, etc a day... It becomes more of a chore than fun.

I sit down with my new Bible and journal and read a verse... sometimes a couple... then express on paper what God said to me. I follow this process until I feel full from His Word. Sometimes, that is an entire chapter... other times... 5 verses...

Presently I am reading through the Bible in 90 days, I completed the first 90 a few days ago. It was awesome! There are so many themes and truths that hit you square in your face reading the word this way. This is reading only.
In my devotional time I am studying/meditating on the gospel of John I journal thoughts and stay in a section until I can apply a truth to my life the goal is to make that point apart of my daily life.... I am pretty hard headed and some times this takes a while. Your soap thing was new to me in that form, now I have a title to my process, thanks. Sometimes I get stuck on O and A and find ,my self staying in that O and A area for a few days.

susanne - i heard it in a beth moore study too...kidding. :-)

clint - journaling kills me, too. my hand hurts, my handwriting is awful, and i think i try to edit too much as i write. this outline helps me to be a little more unfiltered, but stay on track.

hopefully horn can back his words and make us respectable. he seems like the real deal...time will tell. always good to ruffle the tiggers in your first press conference, though!

chris - read for depth, not for distance! i love what you are doing.

phillip - the "a" section is where the rubber hits the road. the "p" section is where we make it a covenant with God...which is a pretty big deal! :-) hope the SOAP outline will help you as much as it's helped me!

Saw the divine mentor in the bookstore today and remembered you recomending it so highly so I grabbed it. Then I thought I might as well go the whole way and get the moleskin too!

Love following you on your blog and just wanted you to know that you never know how God is going to use the words you type. I'm not even sure why I felt so much like I needed to buy that book but we will find out!
