Take the month of October to contemplate scripture verses each day. Read the verse or verses throughout your day. Quiet your mind and listen to what the Lord is saying to you. Keep a journal and look at how the Lord is working in you, through you, and for you.
James 4:2-3 New International Version (NIV)
2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
