First Day of School

Monday, August 18th, 2008

Not only is it my nephew’s first day of kindergarten, it is my first day of fall semester master’s classes online through Liberty university. This is my third class so far, and I’m still pretty motivated to do as well as I can, so I might not have time to keep up with my blogs for the next couple of weeks while I get settled in.

Hopefully I can still work them in for all my avid readers (mom and dad), but I’m making this class high priority, so we’ll see.

Pray for me and Ean!

The Notion of Divine Control

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

Verse: “How much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?” – Matthew 7:11

Quote: “Prayer is not only asking, but an attitude of mind which produces the atmosphere in which asking is perfectly natural.”

Chambers believes Jesus’ emphasis was not on God giving you what you ask for, but that He can give it to you; God is all-powerful.  Always keep your mind on the idea that God is in complete control of your circumstances, and communicate to Him with that understanding.  Don’t ask blindly for everything you want, but out of the knowledge that God knows your situation and knows what’s best for you, and rest in perfect confidence that He will “give good things to them that ask Him.”  If you pray along this line, it may be that what you receive is far greater than what you asked for.
