Give Him Some Praise

Psalm 61:1-3
1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.

Today is Thursday so lets give Him some praise (oh if you are not familiar this is the day where I have my blog "thang" and you can share a verse or praise or whatever)! I want to just take a moment to share about how alive and active Jesus is. I began to get in a slump over not having "homework" and I prayed about the current word that the Lord would have for me to hear in this season. I did not want to go and make a purchase so I prayed that the Lord would just have a study show up at my door. He is big enough. So, I went downstairs and scanned the bookshelf for a workbook that I may have not used yet. I picked out two and decided on "Jesus the One and Only" again I really should move on to something else but I just love these studies. So, I can't even tell you how thrilled my heart is to be back in the New Testament for a time. I have been making my abode in the Old Testament with frequent visits to the New Testament for a while. Back to my prayer...I come home on Tuesday (prayed that prayer Monday) and what do you know..."When Godly People Do Ungodly Things" was returned to my door. I was like Lord not again...a hard I guess I will be listening to the audio of that again. I have some work to do with Jesus as always...but isn't that just hilarious. Pray and expect an answer.

Your responses to my incident cracked me up! I started to research concussions last night and I had some news for Roderick this morning! He cracked up when I told him this and I quote: "Rod, if I am irritable, have crying spells, or am confused it will be because I have a concussion." To which he replies, "babe, you are always like that (as he turns around with a smile on his face)." Then I yell, "When do I cry!" "See you are irritable!", he says. "It's just the concussion...LOL!" No but really sometimes I can be such an idiot I was saying the dumbest stuff last night at work. It was like the lights were on but no one was home. I think that is just plain lack of sleep.

You're too funny! I've done the study "When Godly People Do Ungodly Things" and it's really good. But then again, what Beth Moore study ISN'T good? I've actually been thinking that I need to pick up a different BM study for this time in my life. Just don't know what yet.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hey this is my new favorite verse:
Luke 12:32
"So don't be afraid little flock, since it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom."

My Fav Psalm is Psalm 73. My fav verse in that is v26 "My heart may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever!" What more can be said....
