My purpose: to keep my mind more consistenly focused on God’s Word throughout the day so I fully cast my cares upon Christ instead of fretting and stressing as much as I have lately.
On Saturday, I started reading the same chapter of Scripture every hour until I’d read it a total of 8 times. I plan to do this for 8 days before choosing another chapter. (When responsibilities prevent me from doing it 8 consecutive hours, I'll just make sure I do it 8 separate times each day.)
- It builds my faith hearing God’s Word throughout the day (Romans 10:17)
- It allows God’s Word to “dwell” in my soul (Colossians 3:16)
- It keeps me focused on Christ, not my problems (Philippians 4:8)
- It reminds me to put God’s Word into practice and this gives me God’s peace (Philippians 4:9)
