Motivational Quote: "My own success was attended by quite a few failures along the way. But I refused to make the biggest mistake of all: worrying too much about making mistakes." -Kemmons Wilson

Thought #1: I didn't know who Kemmons Wilson was until I googled him. He started Holiday Inn of America, my second favorite hotel chain. He was born in Osceola, Arkansas. Which shows his determination. There's not a lot to Osceola.

Thought #2: I've been learning more and more how to cook, and not just from recipes. I learned this lesson in cooking as well: you can make sure you make no mistakes, and create blandness, or you can risk a mistake. Sometimes it's a good turnout, sometimes not!

Thought #3: I doubt he's saying that you can go do stupid and not worry about it. He's referring to making thought-out, wise choices that may not turn out right.

Proverbs 25:16(NLT) ->Too much of what we want is dangerous.

Revelation 5:5 ->Christ overcame completely. He doesn't need any further help, we need no other redeemer.

Revelation 5:13 ->All creation praises.

Revelation 5:10 ->We are a kingdom of priests. Priests serve God with complete dedication.

Revelation 5:9 ->Purchased by His blood! not by works.

1 Samuel 13:8 -> The people won't follow the king they demanded.

1 Samuel 13:9-10 ->You want separation of church and state? you better keep the state out of the church, then.

1 Samuel 13:22 ->Only 2 prepared warriors!

1 Timothy 4:13 ->Our focus as church leaders has to be the Word of God. And not on the private sharing or discussion of it, but on public reading, explaining, and instructing!

Lord God, today I need to begin afresh with you. I feel stale, wilted. The mold on my heart is worse than it should be. help me to release my defenses to you.

Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
