Motivational quote at the top of the page: "Life begins when you get out of the grandstands and into the game." P.L. Debevoise

Thought about it: We are certainly not made to sit and watch. I'd insert "church" for life and remind us that church is not about sit and watch. It's about involvement

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I have no strength in life but You. I know Your word, Your work, but I need to once again know Your face and dwell more distinctly in Your presence. Open my eyes to You, Lord God. Please.

1 Samuel 7:8 ->Let your prayers never cease

Proverbs 12:1 -> Hate reproof? Refuse to be disciplined? Here's your sign.
Proverbs 12:19 -> Righteousness leads to care for God's creation. Even self-serving cats.
Proverbs 12:24 -> If we are too lazy to defend freedom, we'll be in trouble.

Isaiah 7:9 ->Your enemies are only people. Your ally is God. Who should you focus on?
Isaiah 7 overall ->simplicity and survival may be all that is left for a people that turn from God.
Isaiah 7:3 -> Children should be involved in ministry. Why take Shear-Jashub?

Revelation 3:5 -> if 'angel' in Rev. 3:1 and Rev. 3:7 means 'messenger' and signifies 'bishop or pastor' what about here? could these 'angels' refer to church leaders? perhaps church leaders that have failed to acknowledge God's faithful ones? that the Lord will point out to ministers who we've missed?

1 Timothy 2:9-10 -> we need to train our young women to live this way. Moreso, we need to train our young men to appreciate and seek spouses based on this criteria. And we parents must stop supporting ungodly excess or inappropriate behavior by word or deed.
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
