We encourage you to use the SOAP method in your personal daily devotional. SOAP is an acronym: Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer. While doing your daily devotional, write your thoughts down in a journal. Journaling is an excellent way to both record and process what God has spoken to us. It’s also a useful tool to use at a later time to reflect on and review some of the “gems” that you have received. Without writing these down, you may forget those blessings and some very important lessons!
