We have not encouraged you to read lots of Scripture during these 40 days, but have chosen to ask you to soak in a small amount of Scripture. Many of us are accustomed to bible reading plans where we read Scripture with the goal of reading lots of Scripture, but we are not as familiar with reading one passage of Scripture and letting the Holy Spirit draw out the depth of what this Scripture might mean for our lives. I just spent several weeks in Psalm 1 absorbing each word and phrase, and I found great encouragement and fellowship with the LORD in that time.

If you are unfamiliar with this type of reading of the Scripture, check out on older blog post from me on what this might look like.
