Thank you so much for giving us this blog. Your insight and work from the Holy Spirit into this project shows with every posting.

My time with God has been in the morning for several years. It sure does keep my day close to Him. I think I started to do this because of what Jesus said to love Him with all our heart and soul and mind and strength. All of these seem to function best in the morning for me because there are no other distractions.

It's funny how your verse today is verse 8 in Psalm 143. I have never seen that verse, even after just reading it. I'm keeping that one within easy reach for sure!

God has been speaking to me about purpose and direction over the course of this year. I am trusting God to direct and teach me to follow his will. As it says in Psalm 143:10: "Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing."

May you and your family have a blessed Christmas.

Thank you Mike for your postings. Have a happy blessed Christmas.

For a long time now I have started my day with your blog. Thank you Mike.

Mike - I am amazed that in my almost 50 years of church-going, how much of the Bible I have missed. Not only have I read things that I never knew existed in the Bible, but because of your commentary that you painstackingly write everyday, I have a better understanding of the messages and a thirst to learn more. I sincerely thank you for giving me a great jumping-off place to continue my study of God's Word! I am so thankful that I was guided to your blog on January 1st of this year! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

You can also read My Utmost for His Highest at http://utmost.org/ online daily for any who may be interested. Thanks so much for your words each day! The song by JJ Heller that you posted earlier this week was SO timely for me and has "pulled me up"....thank you for you obedience to the Lord.

In His Grip,

If I don't read in the morning I feel like I'm entering my day in spiritual battle without my armor on.

Ephesians 6:13
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

I also feel I am better prepared to give an answer:

1 Peter 3:15
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,

I do also like to read God's Word before falling asleep so it is the last thing in my mind. Funny, I had to get pass the idea that it is ok to spend time in God's Word more than just once a day. Weird.

always a special part of my day. Thanks, Mike and also a thanks to Ramona . Blessings & Grand thanks , Karla
