What Will I Do?
Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. —James 1:22

A man who has been my mentor and friend for many years often says that his goal in studying the Bible is always personal application. I appreciate his emphasis on putting learning into practice, because it’s too easy for those of us who study, discuss, teach, and write about the Bible to take a merely intellectual approach to the Word.

Oswald Chambers said: “There is a danger with the children of God of getting too familiar with sublime things. We talk so much about these wonderful realities, and forget that we have to exhibit them in our lives. It is perilously possible to mistake the exposition of the truth for the truth; to run away with the idea that because we are able to expound these things, we are living them too.”

James reminds us that the person “who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does” (1:25). The key issue is not what is preached or written, but what is done.

When I study God’s Word, my first question should not be, “What am I going to say about this?” but “What am I going to do about this?”

We take delight to teach God’s Word,
We say, “Amen, it’s true!”
But it’s of little use to us
Unless His will we do. —D. De Haan

One step forward in obedience is worth years of study about it. —Chambers

Bible in One Year: Exodus 31-33; Matthew 22:1-22

Back in the days I practiced martial arts, I was very flexible. Try that today, and I’d likely lock up in a Gorgon’s Knot, (and some smart a$$ would just stick a hand lettered sign with ‘Defective India Rubber Man’ on it, and lean it against me like a side show display!)

LOL! In my younger years...(way back) I was a cheerleader for 5 years, 2 in Jr.High and 3 in High School. I was small and the one they threw around a lot, like up in the air, etc.
We didn’t have the rules then that they have today and we made up our acrobatic jumps and tricks...LOL! Somedays when I have all these aches and pains, it makes me wonder! But all the fun was worth it! Love my “good old days”....LOL!

I have to say, some of the stuff cheerleaders did (even in ‘My Day’) were both eye popping and simply amazing. I now have a niece who is a cheerleader at A&M, and she has been injured several times. She’s small, so she’s one they toss in the air, and she loves it! She tells me she has to do fifteen minutes or more of stretching exercises before a game just to be flexible enough to do the stuff she does, without risking injury from just the excessive motion. Serious work for what looks like simple fun!

Oh, thank you Johnn!

I’ll have the lovely toast (dry), and a small serving of that fruit (plain).

On second thought, I’ll have the bacon wrapped steak with bernaise sauce and the hashbrowns with LOTS of butter!

I just LOVE coming to your table in the morning!

Polly, how exciting! I have been watching the hummingbird nest web cam that Meg posted last week, and I am enjoying it imensely! (http://cam.dellwo.com/) I think the fledging will be the most thrilling to watch!

We were having a BBQ at some friends’ after church (many years ago), and a baby robin (not quite ready to fly) fell out of the nest. Their lab immediately ran for it, but I was closer, and stopped the dog.

I picked up the scared little bird, and held it until it’s heartbeat slowed down. Do you know, that bird stayed by me the whole afternoon. It’s wings were ready to FLY, when we drove away, and it followed our car for some distance. (Brought tears - fer sure!)

Ain’t life grand?

I’m running a little late this morning.

Due to fog, school has been delayed for two hours. When hubby takes Marissa to school, I will ride along as shotgun because we have to cross a busy semi-highway. An extra pair of eyes and ears helps.

I loved all the last songs you posted. He has several styles and I love’em all. Loved “My Friend” very much and also both of those from the Taylor Hicks C.D....of course I have them but haven’t listened to them in a while. Precious pic of him. He’s good looking, thats for sure.

:)

We were in Dallas a couple of weekends ago and having dinner at a Red Lobster with some friends.... good conversation and good food.... when all of a sudden over the speakers came a familiar song: "Just To Feel That Way", which is another nice one from his Taylor Hicks cd. Made me smile to hear his voice somewhere other than my own speakers. LOL

P.S. Red Lobster is not my favorite restaurant because I’m not a seafood lover, but there is always chicken or steak. I usually order the chicken alfredo over linguini, but they had a brand new wood-grilled chicken in a sweet wine sauce they’d just added to the menu and it was excellent!
