What Lies Ahead

Light Art - DC Convention Center by Mr. Dickie

On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead. We consider our plans for the day. Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.

Leadership Qualities

What qualities do we want most in our leaders? God desires all who rule under Him to be just and righteous. Think how the world would change if world leaders would commit themselves to these two qualities.

Wicked Ruler

Like a roaring lion 
or a charging bear 
is a wicked ruler 
over a poor people.

Dear Lord, let me use my gifts, and let me help my friends and family discover theirs. 
Your gifts are priceless and eternal. 
May we, Your children, use them to the glory of Your kingdom, today and forever, Amen.

Daily Routines

... daily routines help. When praying, meditating, or writing in your journal, in these moments of reflection and quiet, we remember we have choices.

Pray For Courage

I've been away from blogging for a while.

I haven't posted to this blog since 22 Jun 2014.  Around that time I had a throat infection that persisted for about three weeks.  I blame that episode for my lack of interest.  Let's see if I can generate enough interest to resume blogging.

Pray for the courage not to back down, to do what's right even in difficult or dangerous situations.
