If you follow Beth Moore's LPM Blog, please check it today...there is an urgent prayer request for a young woman that had a stroke. You can click the link on the right side of this page to get to the LPM Blog. Please lift her and her family up during this time.
I am reading "Radical" right now...it is pretty good. I am only in Ch 2 so I have aways to go. I can't wait to get "Soul Print" the new release from Mark Batterson. He gave a couple sneak peek excerpts on his blog and it looks like it will be very good.
And I am fixin to start a new Book/Bible Study...Joyce Meyer...Battlefield of the Mind. I am excited about it because I firmly believe that satan attacks your mind and causes you to doubt and stumble...if you ever lose focus on Jesus...you are a sitting duck! Kind of like the BCS Championship...you are the duck and satan is the tiger and he will devour you if you are not ready!
What are you reading right now? If you don't have anything currently, check the right side of this page for some of my old favorites! And I can probably loan them to you... Or you could read your Bible! 15 minutes a day gets you through the entire thing in one year!!!!
Funny Story about the Bible...Travis and I were working on typing out the prayer vigil points last night and we decided that we needed to give the background on King Jehoshaphat and his prayer for protection from the army coming to attack him. So I typed out the story and Travis made fun of me because I did it in present tense. Like it was happening right now (using words like is, will, etc.). So I did the only thing a good wife could do...I defended that the Bible was real and active and living to me and he needed to stop trying to kill it...we laughed and laughed! But in the end he was right...it flowed better in the past tense wording...haha
But seriously...how many of you view the Bible as living? If you don't...come see me we need to talk! Until I read the Bible cover to cover I didn't really think of it as living and active myself...I thought of it as old and boring and something my Granny knew way too much about. And now I am turning into her! After the first year of reading it through, or maybe 2...now I anticipate each story. I know what is going to happen but I still can't wait to read it. And when Judas kisses Jesus on the cheek...I pray for a different ending because it breaks my heart that I tortured Jesus with my sins while He was on the cross. Of course...the ending is the only way to salvation and I am so thankful for it, but I just get caught up in the action and think maybe this time it will be different.
Anyway...what are you reading? That's what I came to ask. If you do not have anything to read and you are sitting in front of the tv watching whatever is on...find a book. Grow your faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ by reading a good book or THE Good Book. Just don't let the world and tv infiltrate and weaken you...like a sitting duck because the tiger is out there waiting(actually the Bible calls satan a lion waiting to devour and destroy but it just works with my BCS example better if we call him a tiger) . James 1:27 is one of my memory verses from last year...look it up and pay attention to the last few words =)
