I just like Him. Yup, gobs. How great Your love is! Who? Let me clearly say His Name -- the one that is way better than all other names.

So SO cool that we each can turn, trust, and first-hand know You on a personal intimate basis. 

It’s like an adventure really. Where do You want me to go -- when can we together see You do great things here. 

Let’s go together, help me not run out ahead, lag behind, stumble, fall or try to lead You. Fill to to full of Your Holy Spirit. Be Lord of my life today Jesus. 

You Lord, are more than awesome -- help me never forget all the benefits or all you've done. 
Thanks for the confidence, Lord, You are my glory. 
When you all-out praise the Lord from the heart, it just seems like your JOY increases so much huh.. as does your awareness of God's holy Presence and love in your life!
Lord, I put my future and me in your hands. Do what you want. Glad that you protect and provide. You encircle me in front and behind and then place Your hand on my head. Serving you is wonderful -- it's cuz You are! 

The place is quiet and nice, but I love you and praise you, Lord. Speak to me from your Word today -- wanna do Your will. Please guide and use me to spread Your Good News.. far and wide. So many are chained up so to speak -- they need hope.  

Thanks for being close. Thanks for caring too. No wonder I'm singing.. of my Savior. You still do great things, so our eyes are fix. 

God of all the heavens, holy God of our redemption.. the glory is Yours! All of it. 

Spirit, breathe Your holy fire within. Once again do what You do. Refill, guide, and do Your thing. How great Your love is! For the sake of those in the world who you deeply love, light a fire in me.. yes, before the fires of wrath and judgement fall. Not sure how much time we have really. Light a fire in me -- passion for Jesus! Let it start again in us, right here.  

How great Your love is! Then sings my soul!

Idea for us. Memorize some Bible verses -- prayerfully! Ask God questions.. ask Him to grant you illumination, insight, discernment, and spiritual wisdom to understand His message and how He wants you today to apply the Word. We can't do anything on our own of eternal value really, and we won't understand what His Word says unless the Holy Spirit allows us to, so we boldly ask God to give us understanding of what He tells us to know, experience and do.

Stay loyal in Christ. Daily it's a whole lot like in the book of Acts, born again Christians are being persecuted all over the world simply for following and worshiping Jesus Christ. 
But let's focus on Jesus and worship Him all the more! 
During crazy days like these ..where wild curve-balls and more are flyin' at ya fairly fast, asking is pretty easy to do. Ask for you, for others, for biblcial revival! Let's keep waiting on and inquiring of the Lord. 
Lord, how do You want me to deal with this unique situation here where I live.. or where you are leading me to?
What specifically am I supposed to feel, say, and learn from all this, #Jesus?
"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." ~ James 1:5
Believer, did you know that...
Every single month:
255 Christians are killed..it's sad but true.
104 are abducted.
180 Christian women are raped, sexually harassed or forced into marriage.
66 churches are attacked.
160 Christians are detained without trial and imprisoned (von Opendoors).
215 million Christians experience high levels of persecution in the countries on the World Watch List. This represents 1 in 12 Christians worldwide.
North Korea is ranked #1 for the 17th consecutive year as the most dangerous country for Christians.
During the World Watch List 2018 reporting period: 3,066 Christians were killed; 1,252 were abducted; 1,020 were raped or sexually harassed; and 793 churches were attacked.
Islamic Oppression fuels Christian persecution in 8 of the top 10 countries.
WHAT'S TRENDING?: THE SPREAD OF RADICAL ISLAM IS, BUT GOD WANTS TO SAVE EACH OF THEM TOO. SOME WILL TURN AND TRUST IF WE BELIEVE AND OBEY.
Remember what the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 12:26 said.. we are one body. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

Recently heard a shocked DC leader say this, "It's dark. It's very very dark. Pray." ~ Mike P. 

Will do. I will pray. This is a great guy.. taking a stand for the Lord and against the evil. I liked his third sentence. And u
ntil Your work on earth here is done. Do move in us. Help our nation -- send another awakening. Please use us Lord.. to tactfully get Your Message out. 


Keep going after Him first. Listen, God sees all you are doing for the saints and others from the overflow He gives, and He will reward you. 

The Bible says, "God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them." Hebrews 6:10
So how are you doing? Been kinda concerned or worried.. fretting, challenged or troubled about anything that I can pray for you about? 
Thanks for your patience with me. Seems like I need to keep relearning the basic stuff of a quiet walk at times ...a walk that overflows with JOY. I love the basics of this walk -- I love the Lord! He is so very patient with me.  
Got my taxes payed this year -- was a bit concerned about that cuz they've 'bout doubled. Praise God. He still hears our prayers and meets needs. 
Had a leak in my house this weekend near the fireplace (normal stuff happening really), but after doing a lot of outdoor construction work to replace the concrete siding and roofing it's all fixed (I enjoyed most of it). Yay! My wife Liney is happy -- happy wife, happy life! Took a lot of time too, more than I figured on.. and am now wearing four bandages on my hands (did hammer the fingers a couple times, cuz I haven't done this stuff in long awhile). Liney says, No you can't wear duck-tape as bandages. Watch me. Am. Like it too.  
Was really blessed early today until now ..with incoming calls for me to help and serve, but I admit that the busyness of today and this last week has made for external distractions from my most important meeting today. I prayed earlier.. but not long before I got running through my day. No condemnation of course, but the “green pastures” and “still waters” of Psalm 23:2 are more than an idyllic country scene in my mind. They speak of our communion with God whereby He restores our souls and leads us in His paths (v.3). My praying on the run in the car is nice, but the house ain't my God and my quiet time alone with God is a must.    
The blessings and busyness continue, but I must remember that there is a busyness that isn't good. Thinking busy Martha verses Mary blessed while sitting at Christ's feet. It just can't replace the greatest blessing of the Father to us -- Jesus and time alone with Him. Please keep waiting on Him in the quiet, and remind your inquirers about the importance of quiet time in the Word. 
Many followers of Jesus still find that a daily time of Bible reading, prayer, and upward praise (with the right address on it..) is so essential in their walk of faith. 
Praise the Lord, O my soul, and don’t forget all his benefits -- Psalm 103:2
You, Lord, are my glory and the one who gives me confidence - Psalm 3:3.
When you all-out praise the Lord from the heart, it just seems like your JOY increases so much huh.. as does your awareness of God's holy Presence and love in your life!
You are my God. My future is in your hands -- Psalm 31:14-15
God, you encircle me in front and behind, and you place your hand above me. This knowledge seems too wonderful to me. -- Psalm 139:-5-6
Lord, you are a shield around me - Psalm 3:3
I must remind myself more often I guess. Hey Kurt. Some busy is okay, but too much busy is bad. Stop and worship more. Trust Him more. Praise the Lord daily -- this is fitting. Knowing the Lord comes before serving the Lord. So much will pull on you, but “quiet time” alone is a disconnection from all the external distractions. It's imperative ..in order to reconnect with my first-love who brings the balance, and wants me more than what I can do for Him in the neighborhood here.
