PAUSE Month: Daily Bible Readings

Starting from 4th March, we are inviting everyone in Oasis to join us in a month of PAUSE — following through our Pause Discipleship Guides to build in daily, weekly and monthly rhythms of rest in God. If you don’t have one of these yet, just pick one up from the Connect point next time you’re in! We’re really excited for what God will do this month as we rest in Him, both individually and together.

To help focus our minds every day, here is a list of Bible verses. Each day, take a moment to pause, read through the verse, and simply pray “What are you saying to me today God?”
