What is "Conversations"? A Conversations Page – is one of three pages in your Conversation Log. (PiVAT, PRISM, Conversations) Learn to be like Samuel! He did not let one Word that God spoke to him – fall to the ground. (I Sam 3:19)
PiVAT captures God’s Plan for you for today – He has good for you! (Do PiVAT before dinner for tomorrow) PRISM captures what God speaks to you each day through His Word (Come back to it throughout the day) CONVERSATIONS – captures what God speaks to you each day through His Holy Spirit, or through others
Of the three daily pages: PiVAT usually goes first because you did PiVAT before dinner yesterday - to get God’s plan for you for today.
Conversations Page is often next, because God will frequently give you counsel in the night season for you to write down when He speaks, or first thing in the morning.
PRISM is five things you can do in God’s Word throughout the day. Just add another Conversations page as more conversations occur.
How to use your Conversations Page
Every Conversation you have with God, yourself, or others, write it down! You will probably use at least one conversation page each day (often more than one) to capture the conversations you have. A Norcom Composition 9x7 Notebook ($1 at Walmart) will last you a month for PiVAT, PRISM, and Conversations. You can draw three columns for PiVAT. PRISM and Conversations are just text. What you write down, you will remember; God will teach you things through each one. You can print out the 3-Day-Challenge packet for a 3-Day-Paper-Conversation log, but long term - any size notebook will work for a Conversation Log.
What could your Conversation Pages Contain?
Conversation Records: Every conversation you have with any person today; write down things discussed, things important to them, things you learned, prayer needs – so you can pray for them. They are precious to God!
Revelation: God will speak to you in the night season, He will wake you up with a spiritual truth on your heart, new ideas, or something He wants you to do. Write them on a Conversations Page, so you don’t forget what He says. He may have you put them directly on your PiVAT for today (His To Do List for you today), or He may have you move them to this month’s ongoing PiVAT Maybe To Do List - for God to confirm, delay or delete.
Ideas Page: Sometimes you will get on a brain storm – not necessarily the Holy Spirit revealing things, but things cluttering your mind. Write them down, so you can ask God - to see what is from Him, and what is not.
Quotes Page: If you hear someone say something on the radio, podcast or television, write it down. People being interviewed are usually successful; and they cannot help but give away some of their secrets. If nothing else, their words reveal how they think. Whether worldly wisdom, or God’s truth, writing down the important things they say gives you an opportunity to learn from them, and ask God to reveal truth versus deception.
Pastor's Sermons: Every time you go to church or hear someone speak, bring your Conversation Log with you, take notes. God often confirms through others, things He told you to do in your PiVAT & PRISM times with Him.
Project Plans: You might have something you need to do, or plan out. Take a CONVERSATIONS page to begin the planning process. Your Conversation Log Index helps you easily come back and finish it at a later time, so you don’t think of things during the day, but then forget them because you didn’t write them down at the time.
Daily Call - A 15 min call before work sharing PiVAT with a friend and praying for each other. 5 min you share, 5 min they share, 5 min pray for each other.
Use the Conversations Page to write their PiVAT for today, and what the Holy Spirit spoke through your prayer for each other.
