…train yourself to be godly. 1 Timothy 4:7b About 16 years ago, I decided to train for the San Francisco marathon. Everything I did was affected by this one goal: To finish 26.3 miles and to finish well. Even in the “small” things, I had an eye on this goal. I was training to be an endurance athlete. How I ate, what I did with my time, what I drank, even the clothes I wore–everything was affected by this goal. During...

Praisefest Time!

Posted by on Feb 10, 2013 in gratitude, Praise, Uncategorized | 0 comments

I have just added to my God List in Evernote from Psalm 33 and Isaiah 33. Now I am going to spend time praising him with what I found. I thought I would do so journaling it…typing it as I go…so you can see what it might look like. Ordinarily, I would do this out loud if possible. I could also select just a few of the things on my God list (for the sake of time). I have time this morning, so I am going to have a long leisurely...

Another great song to add to your “From Trial to Triumph” play list: This is the kind of song that has been used by God to transform my thinking. It will go through my mind at all times of the day and night and it is a beautiful prayer to our God, proclaiming truth about His character and about our trial. I believe having songs like these going through our minds can be used by God to change us. Words to this song:  Refine Me Your...

Be still, and know that I am God;     I will be exalted among the nations,     I will be exalted in the earth. ~ Psalm 46:10 There are times when being busy–even with wonderful spiritual disciplines like those we have been using at this blog–can be a way to escape from dealing with the feelings we have in the midst of life. Being busy about this or that–even good, godly activity that promotes my closeness with...

Techie Tuesday #02 – You Need :-) EVERNOTE

Posted by on Feb 5, 2013 in practical, Praise, technology, Uncategorized | 0 comments

There are a few tools that I use that really seem to add “jet fuel” to  my walk with God. Evernote is one of them and I haven’t scratched the surface of its practical uses, I am sure. I have ONE thing I routinely use it for (well, other than my TO DO list) and that is my God List. In fact, even if everything else gets overlooked, my God List on Evernote, is SO incredibly helpful! First, I use the FREE account. I haven’t...

Further Still – Adding to the God List and Praying for Others

Posted by on Feb 4, 2013 in practical, Praise, transformation, Uncategorized | 0 comments

I want to think God’s thoughts after him. The best way that I know of to do that is to read His Word, to speak His Word, to memorize His Word, to pray His Word. As I do this–especially about my trial or the person through whom my trial comes–my mind is renewed and I am transformed. Let’s revisit our God Lists today and add to them. We will use them for a Praise-Fest, but also to pray for another person. ACTIVITY 1: Turn...
