Motivational quote: "Don't follow any advice, no matter how good, until you feel as deeply in your spirit as you think in your mind that the counsel is wise." David Seabury

Thought #1: This works for me. IF your spirit testifies with His Spirit per Romans 8:16. Otherwise, you're up against Proverbs 14:12.

Thought #2: He seems to be emphasizing that your whole self needs to be in line with the idea. Don't jump on just because you think it's a good idea, but your whole heart needs to be there!

Proverbs 14:4(NLT) ->You want a clean church? How are we going to get one? By it being empty?

Proverbs 14:9(NLT) ->Guilt isn't always bad...

Proverbs 14:15(NLT) ->Or everything you get forwarded in your email!

Proverbs 14:16(NLT) ->Danger is something to avoid, not plow head-on into. Or to recklessly send your children into.

Proverbs 14:35(NLT) ->So should all leaders.

Isaiah 43:2 ->Bad stuff will happen

Isaiah 43:25 ->He forgives for His glory

1 Timothy 4:7 ->leave behind the worldly ideas, the rumor-mongering, the fables and fantasies...do they draw you nearer to God?

Discipline ->work towards building yourself into God's design for your life. It will not be easy, and will require your effort!


Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
