Week of May 21-27

When you write out your SOAP, don't worry about getting things "right" or perfect. This has more to do with your interacting with the Bible than anything else. We hope you enjoy this time with God's word!

At the Journey, our desire is that every believer would not just attend church, but also hear from God daily through His Word! As we read the Bible, we begin to see how God responds to things. Doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think, transforms the spirit of our mind, and helps us become more like Jesus!

HOW TO

S.O.A.P. journaling is a simple and excellent way to both record and process what God has spoken to you. It's also a useful tool to use at a later time when you want to reflect on and review some of the 'gems' that you have received. Without writing them down, you may forget those blessings and important lessons! Furthermore, while journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your daily journaling with your Life Group or spouse, so having a written record becomes very important! Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight, and even encourage others!

S. FOR SCRIPTURE

It all starts when you read the Bible, whether it is a verse or chapter. When you read the Bible, pay attention to what verse or phrase really stands out to you. Feel free to underline in your Bible as you read; this will help you identify meaningful verses or phrases. Once you identify what stands out the most, write it down.

O. FOR OBSERVATION

This part is as simple as writing down what you think the verse or phrase means. Don't worry about getting this exactly right; that is not the point. The most important part of this is beginning to interact with the Bible.

A. 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. 

P. FOR PRAYER

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or even a prayer for 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.

40 Days 2017 • March 4 - April 15

S.O.A.P will continue after 40 Days is over. You can download the book below or grab a physical copy after each service on March 5/6. Copies will also be available under the Teal Tent (in Orange City) and Information Center (in Sanford) during the other five weeks of 40 Days.  


There is a longing within us to experience God’s power and love in our lives, so why is it that so often we feel guilty, defeated, and trapped. The bible is clear, God intends for His people to live a life of freedom. A life free from guilt and shame. But why do we feel like that's such an impossibility. What must we do to finally release the burden of our past? How can we overcome the brokenness and find lasting hope for the future? The answer is only found in Jesus Christ! He meets us right where we are, right in the middle of our brokenness and bondage to offers us a love that frees us. On the cross Jesus accomplished everything we need to live in freedom.  He asks us to surrender all that we are so he can give us greater joy, better fulfillment, complete forgiveness and a brand new life. Be a part of the next 40 days as we discover the freedom that Jesus offers so we no longer live as slaves.

S. FOR SCRIPTURE

It all starts when you read the Bible, whether it is a verse or chapter. When you read the Bible, pay attention to what verse or phrase really stands out to you. Feel free to underline in your Bible as you read; this will help you identify meaningful verses or phrases. Once you identify what stands out the most, write it down.

O. FOR OBSERVATION

This part is as simple as writing down what you think the verse or phrase means. Don't worry about getting this exactly right; that is not the point. The most important part of this is beginning to interact with the Bible.

A. 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. 

P. FOR PRAYER

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or even a prayer for 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.

How to reference the Bible:  John 18:1-11 – Book=John | Chapter=18: | Verse(s)= 1 through 18

Week of Jan 15-21

Week of Jan 15-21

When you write out your SOAP, don't worry about getting things "right" or perfect. This has more to do with your interacting with the Bible than anything else. We hope you enjoy this time with God's word!

At the Journey, our desire is that every believer would not just attend church, but also hear from God daily through His Word! As we read the Bible, we begin to see how God responds to things. Doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think, transforms the spirit of our mind, and helps us become more like Jesus!

This Week

HOW TO

S.O.A.P. journaling is a simple and excellent way to both record and process what God has spoken to you. It's also a useful tool to use at a later time when you want to reflect on and review some of the 'gems' that you have received. Without writing them down, you may forget those blessings and important lessons! Furthermore, while journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your daily journaling with your Life Group or spouse, so having a written record becomes very important! Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight, and even encourage others!
