Once you find some resources that work for you (especially some of the devotional reading plans) you may find it helpful to start a “Life Journal.” Any spiral notepad will do, or you can use a journaling application on your electronic device.
The “SOAP Method” described below is a good way to put into action what you're reading (Faith without action is of little value in our lives, and knowledge without effort produces little progress!)
The S.O.A.P. Method
The S stands for Scripture
Simply write down the chapter and verses that meant the most to you in your reading. If you want to put a bit of extra thought into it, give the passage a title.
The O stands for Observation
What are some of your observations about the text you read? The simpler the better! "Jesus offered mercy when the religious leaders called for judgement" etc.
The A is for Application
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this Scripture can apply to you today.
The P is for Prayer
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this Scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.
