"And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." (Deuteronomy 6:6-9, ESV)

Remember

God wants to be known by us. He is very serious about us saturating our lives with His Word. He knew we would forget. Saturating is about being intentional in our remembering of who He is and what He has done for us.

Each month, on Days 1 and 2 of our study, we take time to intentionally saturate our minds, homes, families, and lives with our new passage. 

To make saturating more fun, we have created lettered products and also shared some of our favorite tools.

Tips for Maximizing "Saturation"

The more intention you put into the "saturation" setup at the beginning of the month, the more this passage will take root in your heart. We recommend:

  • Involving the whole family, if applicable (be okay with it being imperfect!)
  • Lettering and writing the verses on multiple mirrors and windows (here's a link to the easy-to-erase marker we use)
  • Placing your prayer cards and ring of study cards somewhere you will see them and pick them up frequently throughout the month (TV table, nightstand, purse)
  • Making games (especially with kids) out of rearranging fridge magnets, letter tiles, and letters on felt boards
  • Updating your windows, mirrors, letter tiles, and felt boards for each new verses in the study
  • Wearing, using, or displaying your Abidible lettered products as a daily reminder

God doesn't just want His Word on our hearts some of the time. He knows us well. He knows how easily we forget. Thankfully, He loves us too much to let that happen. We just have to respond in obedience and invite Him to help us saturate our minds, homes, families, and lives with Him.
