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!!!

Book: By the Waters of Babylon

Worship. It is what the church does as we strive to honor God with our lips and our lives. And then, many churches argue about worship. I have about a half-dozen books on my shelf about worship, but adding Scott Aniol’s By the Waters of Babylon to the shelf has been excellent.

First of all, Aniol’s work is not based on solving a musical debate. While that branch of worship is often the most troublesome in the local church, By the Waters of Babylon takes a broader view. The starting point is the place of the church. That place is a parallel of Psalm 137, where the people of God, Israel, found themselves in a strange land. The people of God, again, find themselves in a strange land.
Second, in summary, the book works logically to the text of Scripture, primarily Psalm 137 but well-filled with other passages. Then it works outward from how the text addresses the problems submitted in the first chapter into how worship, specifically corporate worship, should look in the 21st century Weste…

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…
