I noticed I have been quiet of late. Not really, just quiet as far as this blog goes . . .

In January, I began an intentional journey of Scripture memory. “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” This quote is often attributed to Benjamin Franklin and/or Winston Churchill; in  my experience, if I just say, I’ll get to it — I seldom do . . .

I have seen God work in amazing ways through His Word! Such a short statement for such tremendous truth. God has answered my feeble request so far “above and beyond” — and proved that God is bigger than brain injury, or vasospasm, or ______ (whatever the obstacle)

It’s November, the typical month set aside for giving thanks. Nothing is more fitting for this time of year, than the Psalms’ own doxology. Let these power-packed, truth-filled, God-exalting (yep, Piper influence bleeds through) statements bless you today (and no, I did not add the exclamation points; they are in my Bible)

Psalm 100 (ESV)

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him, bless his name!

For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Amen.

I want to know what you think!
