Not so devotional

So I've been up since 5:00 with little discernible result. My desktop computer is temperamental (it's vintage 1997, so that's no surprise), I'm both distractible and stubborn, and I'm so far out of the groove of devotional time that I have nothing to settle into. That said, it's still a start, and that's what I need if I'm going to build any sort of habit or discipline.

Part of my problem is that I seem to be searching for some kind of devotional curriculum or experience, yet also retain considerable skepticism about programs I come across—too much of this, not enough of that. I'm dissatisfied with milk but not expressing the maturity for meat. And I'm probably trying to substitute head-work for heart-work—something I can control versus something I must learn to wait for in hope while doing the things I can.

I'm dissatisfied with milk but not expressing the maturity for meat.

I've written that sentence in some similar form in the last two weeks.
I was given a daily lectionary to go by. Each morning I read a psalm, then a prophet or historical OT text, then a selection from the NT and then something from one of the gospels. It sounds like a lot but it probably amounts to about two chapters worth a day - I get through it in 15 minutes.

If you're interested, here's the site and the current lectionary, I print out a month at a time and keep the page tucked in my bible -->

It was a help because I'd ditched my own program a year prior because I was too aimless.

Anyway, I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for but I may as well offer it, ya know? :)
That's actually one of the places I ended up! Thank you!
