  1. Choose a text of Scripture to read.  It doesn’t have to be long!
  2. Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. (Solitude)
  3. Quiet your heart and mind in the best way you know how.  (Silence)
  4. Then slowly read the passage once. 
  5. Reflect on the passage.  What is the Lord saying to you through it?  Rest in God’s presence.
  6. Read the passage again. 
  7. Respond to God’s Word.  What would you like to say to God in the light of this passage?
  8. What do you feel the Lord is calling you to do based on this passage? How and when will you follow-through?
  9. Go on with your daily tasks, meditating on God’s Word as you go.
