An August Of Psalms

An August Of Psalms

On occasion Alexis and I have offered the advice of scheduling in date nights and even 'romantic times' when counseling couples. They all say, "That doesn't sound ROMANTIC!" That might be true, but what's less romantic is never dating and never having 'romantic times'. So, until it becomes more natural and regular, we think you should put it on the calendar. 

This is true of our relationship with Jesus. It might come naturally for some of you, but for many of us, it's not natural at all! Even with our best intentions, Facebook and CNN win out. 

So, this August we are calling the church to form a NEW HABIT! We are going to read all 150 Psalms by reading a few each day in August. Now, I don't want you to read all 5 Psalms for that day first thing in the morning. I want you to schedule (on your phone or computer) a reading every few hours during the day. So maybe you read the first one at 8 am, another during a break at 10 am, one at lunch, one after work, and one before you go to sleep. 

This creates the habit of spending time with Jesus throughout the day, not just once during the day. This will help us abide in Him. I would also encourage you to jot down anything the Holy Spirit is speaking to you while you read each Psalm. Learn to hear His voice, learn to love what He loves, learn to relate to the Father in the same way Jesus related to the Father. 

Here is the schedule for August. I'm praying that each one of you will form this LIFE GIVING HABIT!
