Setting my heart towards God’s Word #Ezra7 #RenewYourMind


This week’s story in The Gospel Project, reminds me of Ezra’s fervency to the impact God’s Word is to have in my life.

In a time when too many of us are following our hearts, Ezra’s example is that we determine the path of our heart. 

May I consistently follow Ezra’s passion for God’s Word to “study it, obey it, and teach it.”

He Became Sin for Us #RenewYourMind


He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us,so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 

2 Corinthians 5:21 #RenewYourMind

I will thank the Lord with all my heart. #psalm9 #RenewYourMind


“I will thank the Lord with all my heart; I will declare all your wondrous works. I will rejoice and boast about you; I will sing about your name, Most High.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭9:1-2‬

I must choose to be thankful. A thankful heart is not something that “just happens” or that someone stumbles into. A thankful heart recognizes there is so much out of my control. A thankful heart is a heart at peace. 

What a wretched man I am! #RenewYourMind


“What a wretched man I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?”

“Come, Lord Jesus!”

‭‭Romans 7: 24; Revelation‬ ‭22:20‬‬

“Be gracious to me, Lord, for I am weak” #Psalm6 #RenewYourMind @csbible


I wake because the Lord sustains me. #RenewYourMind


May I examine my ways & worship the Lord


Came across these verses today. What an exhortation! 

God, help me examine all my ways and worship you!

When complaining about my dog, my 11yo quoted me this verse #dadlife


Recently when complaining about my dog (and that often involves joking about getting rid of her), my 11yo quoted me this bible verse:

Well played, son, well played…

Guide me in Your truth, Lord #psalm25 #RenewYourMind


“Make Your ways known to me, Lord; teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; I wait for You all day long.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭25:4-5‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Beginning the #gospel with God as Creator #GodRules @lifewaykids


“The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the Lord; for He laid its foundation on the seas and established it on the rivers.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭24:1-2‬

A few years back, LifeWay began producing “Gospel Plan” materials that begin with “God Rules.” I use this approach often, especially with children, because it is imperative, in my opinion, for us to begin our understanding of the gospel from this point:

God is Creator of all things, and as Creator, He alone has the right to create the rules.
