God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship him in spirit and in truth. — John 4:24 (NIV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Genuine worship is a gift. Since God is spirit, since he is holy, we cannot fully approach him without the gift and blessing of his Holy Spirit. As Christians who received his Spirit when we were baptized into Christ and born of God, we can now speak to him and worship him Spirit to Spirit.

My Prayer...

Abba Father, by the gift of your Spirit I come to you as your child. Thank you so much for giving me your Spirit so that I can approach you with confidence and know you hear the concerns of my heart. Please accept the worship of my heart, of my words, and of my actions. May the things I do each day bring you glory. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Today I am thankful for:
- friends that help me do what is right in God's eyes
- the avenue of prayer, so that I can give my 'stresses' to God
- a new day to start fresh
- a good night's rest
- a family that loved me!
- a coat to keep me warm during the cold winter days

Lord of Hosts, my Great Deliverer, protect me from the evil one by your great power. Give me a sense of urgency as I face Satan and his schemes on a daily basis, but also give me confidence that Jesus has already defeated my foe. Help me to stand against this foe and show myself faithful to you. Through Jesus my Lord and Savior I pray. Amen. Eph. 6:12-13

Today I am thankful for:
- People who care about me
- a great doctor who helps me cure the pain
- reminders of how close Satan can get, so I rely on God to get me through!

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things.
— Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Our actions follow our thoughts like a heat seeking missile follows the exhaust of a jet fighter's engine. So in a day when so much around us trains us to find the negative in life, we must aggressively think and pursue the character, the qualities, and the things of God's goodness.

My Prayer...

Holy and Magnificent God, thank you for being better than anything my world can offer me. Thank you for calling me to a higher standard than the world accepts. Thank you for giving me the promise of a better future than any human can imagine. Thank you for giving me a high calling to live up to you. In Jesus' holy name I pray. Amen.

Today I am thankful for:
- a job that provides me with the financial ability to help others
- a safe trip to work
- Christian radio station that helps me focus on the things that are TRULY important
- a warm place to go when it is cold outside

I lift up my eyes to the hills -- where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Thoughts from today's verse:
Since God could speak into existence the universe, and since God knows our names and the number of the hairs on our head ... surely we know that we can go to him for our help. Let's lift up our eyes and our hearts to El Shaddai, Lord God of the Mountains, and know the Almighty sees our needs, hears our requests, and cares about our hearts.

My prayer:
Holy and all-powerful Abba Father, I do look to you for help. You are the one true source of redemption, power, comfort, encouragement, hope, and excellence in my life. Please give me the wisdom to know your will and choose your will for my life. Thank you for being faithful through the ages to your people and throughout my life to me. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Today I am thankful for:
- a time of worship with friends
- the ability to sing praises to God
- friends that lead a hand when you aren't feeling well
- a good nights rest

New Years Weekend 2010, my friend Alicia and I set out from Nashville to pick up my buddy, Dave in Memphis. We had many adventures along the way, but made it to Searcy with 5 minutes to spare in ringing in the New Year with my cousins.
Then the big adventure begins, off to Dallas for the Cotton Bowl 2010 in the NEW Cowboys stadium. I dream for a die hard Cowboys fan and a Rebel fan all in one. It was an amazing trip! Lots of fun had by all! The Rebels walked away with the win, becoming the Cotton Bowl Champs, and I left good vibes in the stadium for the Cowboys to beat the Eagles on Sunday.

Enjoy the show!
