the five steps


Each day of the week, we begin our devotions with a powerful statement intended to help you pause and prepare to listen to what God is saying. The “Pause” statement will remain the same throughout the week.


You will find selected lectionary scripture verse(s) for each day. Unless otherwise noted, scriptures are from the Common English Bible.


The devotional is designed to help you think and interact with the scripture. Let the writer’s words guide your reflection on the scripture.


The prayer is a starting point for you to begin your own personal conversations with God.


We conclude our devotions with a blessing intended to send you out, remembering what you have learned, guided by the Spirit. The “Go” statement will also remain the same throughout the week.
