discipline

January 12th, 2010

I decided last night to read the Bible in its entirety and journal along with it. God’s been putting the desire for His Word in my heart, and it’s time to respond. I printed out a 90-day reading plan and will use it as guidance. I read pretty slow, so if it doesn’t happen in [...]

pray

October 22nd, 2009

1 Peter 4:7-11 (HCSB) Now the end of all things is near; therefore, be clear-headed and disciplined for prayer. Above all, keep your love for one another at full strength, since love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining. Based on the gift they have received, everyone should use it to [...]

impermanance

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. -Mark 13-31 This earth is impermanant. Even HEAVEN will pass away. But God is ETERNAL. Praise the Lord!

challenge

February 15th, 2009

This was in today’s Today in the Word study. Like David, we should be hesitant to accept a higher status but eager to accept a challenge to do more for God. May we always focus on exalting God and not ourselves.

trustee

January 17th, 2009

The end of 2008 presented me with a challenge. I was approached and asked to prayerfully consider serving the church in the capacity of trustee. Not much time was available to consider and pray, but Hans and I did and found no good reason to decline the nomination. Hans is definitely an immense blessing to [...]

quarter

I’m only into the second week of the Winter Quarter. I don’t know how it will go and I don’t know what else will happen outside of school. I just know that God will give me the strength and perseverance for trials that may come. May I grow to be more like Him, acting with [...]

If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See [...]

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.   ~Psalm 37:5-6

following

April 25th, 2008

Today’s Today in the Word talks about our commission. Colossians 1:28-29 New International Version (NIV) 28We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. 29To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me. Paul served the church by [...]

ash wednesday

February 6th, 2008

Luke 9:51-62 It is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten season. Today’s ODB was about peripheral vision, how it is helpful to be aware of our surroundings, yet we should not allow it to take attention from our main goal. “We can’t move ahead while looking at what we’ve left behind.” This brings a [...]
