How do you get your scripture verse for each day? Is this something that you just chose or is there a "set" verse that you have already selected? Some planners come with a verse already printed for that day, but since this one does not, I am curious as to how you choose a verse.
Heather says: This is a great question. For me, I had to go direct to the source. I have tried to read devotionals and or follow inspiring instagram accounts that share Bible verses, but the words never really resonated with me because I didn't have any context of where the verse was coming from, who said it and why. So I set out to "read and know the Bible" and I did that by starting to read 1 Psalm a day. In doing this, I would highlight a verse within a Psalm that spoke to me that day and then I would write that verse down.
From there, I became more comfortable going to my personal Bible and being familiar with the books and then started to more of the Books. Also - each year I read one of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) from December 1 through Easter to remind myself of Jesus' life.... and I write verses from there along the way. So far I've read Luke and Matthew. This year I will probably read Mark.
I'm 3 years into this journey and I've read every Psalm and next week I'll finish reading Ephesians for the first time.
If it feels overwhelming to read a Psalm a day, you could read 1 per week and focus on re-writing a single verse from that Psalm each day to help you meditate on its meaning and memorize it.
