The cycle of busyness vs. downtime/relaxation for many people follows the seasons of the year. As we gear up for autumn, remember that God invites us to rest in Him no matter where in the cycle we find ourselves. Take time out of- your day, your week, your month, your year- to spend quality time in silence and solitude listening to your Savior speak to you through His Word. Then remain in His rest as you go about your life now, living and working in His Kingdom.
Consider using the daily reading schedule found here. Every day, our plan for reading includes sections from the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs
You can customize the schedule to what works best for you. Here are some options to consider:
· Read all four Scripture selections in one sitting.
· Read the Old Testament and Psalms selections in the morning. Then read the New Testament and Proverbs selections in the evening.
· Pick one of the four selections to focus on more deeply. At the end of one year, you will have read through all of the Old Testament, or all of the New Testament, etc.
· Choose your own combination.
Whatever option you choose, dive into God's Word with confidence, knowing that He eagerly waits to meet with you.
