SoZo Devotionals: Romans

Hello, again!
I hope, if you've been working through the SoZo devotionals, that you're soaking in some good Truth and thinking more on the things of the Lord.  That is the goal of daily devotionals ... to refocus our minds on the Lord.  With all the distractions and worries and frustrations of this life, we need to REFOCUS on what and who is most important.  Taking just a few minutes out of each day, putting these Truths into practice, and practicing dwelling on the Lord through prayer and thankfulness each day helps us refocus.  I hope you will keep practicing your faith with me!

This week, our devotionals are pretty simple but may take a little extra time.  But you be the judge!  You can rewrite EACH verse, or just pick out the verses that speak to you the most.  This is YOUR devotional time, so make the most of it!  You will be reading through Romans chapter 8, probably one of my top-ten favorite chapters in the Bible.  Each day, read the suggested verses, and then rewrite each verse, putting it in your own words ... another way to think about each verse is to ask, "What does this verse mean?" and then write it down.  And don't forget to spend a few minutes in prayer ... whether you journal your prayers, pray them out loud, or find another way to pray.  Don't be afraid to pour out your heart to God, like it says in Psalm 62:8.  Just talk to Him like you would talk to a friend.

We're starting on Monday this week!
