Just to fill you in…
I thought I would just give you an update about how the blog is working of late.
I have been following a guide for daily devotional reading: A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Other Servants (Job & Shawchuck). This great resource was recommended to me by Jack de Vries, the Mission Training Coordinator of the Christian Reformed Churches of Australia. There are readings for each day, following the basic form of
Psalm for the week
Daily Bible Readings
Reading for reflection
Prayers for myself, the world, and others
Reflection: silent and written
Hymn or song for the week
A few week’s ago I set myself the goal of regularly working through ‘A Guide to Prayer…’. I started recording my thoughts in a devotional journal, and after a few days I thought that I would share them with you. Perhaps the daily readings and the comment I make might also encourage you to be more regular in reading your bible and focusing your mind on the things of God.
This sort of discipline is not always easy to sustain. Well, I don’t always find it easy.
So I hope these posts help you deepen your understanding of the goodness of God and of his call on your life. As always, I encourage you to comment regularly, and engage with the subject matter.
Grace and peace,
