Hi,

I admire you for putting great efforts in updating your blog daily which shows your great love in spreading the Good News. I stumbled upon your blog quite sometime ago but it was lost among so many other blogs that are more 'interesting' as they deal with current affairs. However I do confess that we must anchor ourselves to the Bible as the only reliable benchmark to living a life acceptable to God. I would love to continue reading your blog on a daily basis and I pray that more readers will find your blog and comment on the issues you raise daily.

Well, the imagery in the Psalm section conveys a common problem, which is how to spend time effectively and productively. I believe many people, especially the under-employed and the retired, are at a loss as to what to do with their time. I believe that God wants us to apply our talents towards areas that help the disadvantaged and I am grateful that I am given the privilege to serve in the area link to the URL above.

I suppose in our lifetime we need to be able to show to God when we meet Him what we did while we sojourned here.

Mike, you are so right on it about setting yourself apart from the world! We are the body of Christ. We are His vessel. In order for Him to work in us and through us, we have to be aware of what our spirit leads us to do and stay committed on the journey with Christ. Just this past week, I started feeling a call to change and alter my schedule daily, and first things first, to start it off again, "early" with God! I committed and got "on board" again if you might say that, to early rising, like at 4 am or 4:30 and got lots of God time in and my day was completely changed and blessed beyond all I could say, think, or ask. Does everyone have to recommit that strongly to have a breakthrough? I don't think so, but I do believe it is whatever the Lord places on your heart to change, its the little things that matter. Like you said the R rated movies, replacing with Life changing movies, or watching less tv in general. I personally don't watch those R movies in a "long"!! time either. I for one have small kids and so when they were born, we centered our movies around their eyes and ears could handle, G rated and such, I used to love horror movies, now I look back and wonder what was I thinking? I don't get the reason behind me liking something so fake but something so terrifying to give me nightmares?? such death and tragedy in a flick? I don't think my spirit should be submitted to that. Anyway, the whole bottom line is Seek the Lord with All your heart and all your soul(Deut 4:29), with All diligence(Prov 4:23), from out of the abundance of your heart will flow the well springs of Life(prov 4:23)! and Life more abundantly! God Bless Each and Everyone on this Blog! ~~DeeDee

This is my beloved Son: hear him.

The thought of setting myself apart makes me nervous. I don't want being set apart to be seen as being better than. I don't like to make a blanket statement about what I will and won't watch or listen to. I do, however, stop watching or listenting to a particular song or movie/TV show when I feel uncomfortable with the language or ideas in it. I trust that God will convict me at the appropriate times. I HAVE noticed that it takes a lot of guts to do this in front of other people. When Jay asked me to sing a song I wasn't comfortable with, there was a lot of internal back and forth about whether it was a big deal, and basically some rationalizing and trying to compromise with what I felt like God was telling me. Eventually, when I did let her know I wasn't comfortable, she didn't try to talk me into it or ridicule me or even think I was being goody two shoes. She just accepted it and we moved on.
