Take the time each day to read each verse and write them in your journal. The action of writing them out will ensure that you are slowing down and taking in what God is speaking to you.
Day 1: Read Psalm 23
List what you learn about God’s intentions toward us.
Day 2: Think about it
Thinking about a “gracious” hostess, what might you learn about God’s grace?
Day 3: Psalm 23:5
How able are you to enjoy God’s hospitality and rest in the midst of trouble? How can this imagery propel you toward God in the trying circumstances?
Day 4: Reflection
How can God’s imagery of feasting, sipping & supping help you better understand & reflect God’s character?
Day 5: Write it down
Whether or not you feel particularly creative, for whom could you set a welcoming table and serve a simple but nourishing meal this week, despite any distractions or difficulties present?
