Sometimes when I am learning something new, I get stuck in a learning mode and don’t try to apply what I am learning because I feel as if I can’t put myself out there until I get things perfect.
Can you relate?
I reason, if I don’t put myself out there, I cannot fail! When you feel that way as you move forward with this new Bible study process, a good friend will take you by the hand and say, “You’ve got this. Let’s do this together.”
Today I am pushing you out there, treasured one, so you can encounter the life-changing effects of God’s Word written on your heart as you spend time with him.
Promise me three things:
- While learning the Nourish Method, you must shift your mind-set to recognize the journey as a process and not focus on attaining perfection so you can step out there and put pen to paper.
- You must redefine success as spending time with Jesus rather than completing the lesson or understanding every passage or being concerned about how much you write on a page.
- You must remember your role. You are the receiver. God is the revealer. Your goal at this point in the process is to practice for ten minutes and then stop.
Cheering you on as you begin! Onward!
Take ten minutes to put what you’ve learned into practice by applying Reveal. the first step of the Nourish Method, to Ephesians 1:1-11.
As you pray, begin to journal in the 21-Day Challenge notebook pages (you will find space to the right of days 7 and 8). Take just ten minutes.
Think of today as just getting your feet wet – you’ll wade deeper into the waters next week. By all means, if you want to spend more time on this step, go for it!
