SoZo Devotionals: Just some cool Scriptures :)

Hey, you guys!  Here are some Scriptures God has been showing me over the past couple of weeks.  Hope you get a chance to do some devos this week, whether these or some others you have found.  Let's keep practicing knowing God better every single day! :)

Sunday, March 23rd - Read Psalm 86:10-12
~ v. 10 - List the "wondrous things" God has done in your life recently.
~ v. 11 - This verse talks about an "undivided heart."  What things in your life distract you from the Lord?  What things cause your heart to be divided?
~ v. 12 - Write down some things you're thankful for ... and then take some time to thank God for 'em!
I just finished my book, Too Busy Not To Pray by Bill Hybels, and he suggested journaling/examining your life and praying what you write down.  It's a great way to practice prayer! ... Take some time to examine your life today (or if you're a morning devo-er, examine your life yesterday).  Write down some attitudes/sins/joys/experiences from today ... and pray through them.

Monday, March 24th - Read Psalm 73:23-26
~ v. 23 - What do you need comfort for today?

~ v. 25 - Do you really desire God above all else?  What/Who is standing in your way of desiring God?
~ v. 26 - Think about what you're going through these days ... how can applying the Truth of this verse give you strength?
Take some time to examine your life today.

Tuesday, March 25th - Read 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
