Motivational Quote: "All our talents increase in the using, and every faculty, both good and bad, strengthens by exercise"-Anne Bronte

Thought #1: Why do we need reminded of the obvious?

Thought #2: It's important to realize that all things, we're exercising something, whether for good or bad.

Prayer: Father, You alone can help me through today. Thank you for creating me. There is no reason for You to love me, but You said You do, so I will trust Your word. For I must trust your word!

Mark 14:27 ->Even knowing this, Christ still washed feet, broke bread, and loved his disciples. And we get agitated if somebody didn't vote 'yes' on a motion.

Isaiah 49:6 ->It is too small for us to only grow our churches.

Proverbs 2:6(NLT) ->So how will we get knowledge without Him?

Proverbs 2:9(NLT) ->There is nothing God's wisdom cannot address.

Proverbs 2:22(NLT) ->The wicked get what they want: separation from the godly.

1 Timothy 3:11 ->Perhaps a reminder that their wives should be a part of the family of faith as well? And faithful in all things: not just a few, but all things. Careful with words: in other words, not the source of the problems her husband is having to deal with!!!



Moving toward the Horizon,

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…
