Lectio Divina – The Sabbath Journey


Lectio Divina is spiritual discipline that has been practiced since the 3rd century.  Scott Quesinberry writes, “It is a Sabbath practice that breaks my weekly routine.  I find it deeply meaningful.”

Together with Scott, we’ll make this a 7th Day Sabbath Journey.  Lectio Divina steps are simple. Read a Bible passage.  Meditate on the passages practical meaning for your life.  Pray, open your heart and sense how God’s Spirit is speaking into your life.  Visualize how this will look in your daily walk.  We hope that you are equally blessed as you do “The Sabbath Journey” .

Mark 6:34-37 (The Message)   So they (Jesus and His disciples) got in the boat and went off to a remote place by themselves. Someone saw them going and the word got around. From the surrounding towns people went out on foot, running, and got there ahead of them. When Jesus arrived, he saw this huge crowd. At the sight of them, his heart broke—like sheep with no shepherd they were. He went right to work teaching them.  

When his disciples thought this had gone on long enough—it was now quite late in the day—they interrupted: “We are a long way out in the country, and it’s very late. Pronounce a benediction and send these folks off so they can get some supper.”  Jesus said, “You do it. Fix supper for them.”  They replied, “Are you serious? You want us to go spend a fortune on food for their supper?” 

I read. I meditated. I prayed. I visualized.  Here is how God’s Spirit spoke to me.  Scott, “If you want God to do a miracle in your life, the first thing you have to do is admit that you have an unsolvable problem.”  — So, my friend, what did God’s Spirit say to you?
