Yay Veronica! I'm a GMG myself. I have led a couple studies including our current Luke one. SOAP has helped me tremendously while studying Luke. In the past, I've always read the Gospels like stories. sOAP has helped me to slow down and really think about what Jesus is saying. So happy to have a fellow GMG in this group
All for His Glory - Amber
Call to me and I will answer you. I will tell you great & unsearchable things.~Jeremiah 3:33
I therefore I run thus: not with uncertainly. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air: but I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified. I Corinthians 9:26 & 27.
Hi ladies! Do any of you use the SOAP journaling method? (I think that Amber might). I love it!
If you go to soapstudy.com/ you can register and actually type your notes right on your iPad or iPhone, but I prefer the notebook method :-)
Here's a little about it (I copied this from the website):
:What is S.O.A.P.?
S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. It is a way of getting more out of your time in God's word. We did not invent it, we just decided to make a website to make it easier to do.
How does it work?
It's quite simple. When you sit for your daily quiet time read the bible as you normally would with one simple difference. Underline or make note of any verses that jump out at you with special significance. This is the basis for diving deeper and using S.O.A.P.
Scripture Type in the verse or verses that stuck out to you in your reading.
Observation What did you observe about the scripture that struck you. This can be one sentence or a whole book.
Application How can you apply the observation so that it affects your life today.
Prayer Write out a prayer to God based on what you just learned and ask him to help you apply this truth in your life."
Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
