In just a week’s time, you have spent time daily chewing on these scriptures. The more we chew, the more nutrients are released into our soul.  The ancient practice of Lectio Divina is case in point—taking a word or phrase, we continue to rehearse it in our mind and allow it to begin to sink into our heart that it may be allowed to take root through the Spirit.  I would invite you to read through the narrative once more, seeking that word or phrase, and spend some time rehearsing it in your mind.  Why does it stick out?  What are you being invited to do with it?  How might it be a mirror to your soul?

The goal of these scriptures is to allow us to be shaped into our truest selves while growing in our faithfulness to God.  May you jump in and grow abundantly!
