Daily Scripture: Year 1, Day 30

From A Journal of Sacred Readings

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I will wait for Him.”
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.
It is good to hope silently
For the salvation of the Lord. (Lamentations 3:24–26)

Read: Slowly read the Scripture passage several times.

Reflect: Reflect and ruminate on the words and phrases in the text. Which words, phrases, or images speak most to you?

Respond: Offer the internalized passage back to God in the form of a personalized prayer of adoration, confession, renewal, petition, intercession, affirmation, or thanksgiving.

Rest: What word or image encapsulates the spirit of the passage for you? Take a few minutes to present yourself before God in silence and yieldedness. When your mind wanders, center yourself by returning to the spirit of the passage.
