PHILLIPS CRAIG DEAN-GREAT I AM
I saw this from Rick Warren and it really challenged me:
In The Purpose Driven Life, he says: "Many who claim to believe the Bible from cover to cover have never actually read it from cover to cover! But if you will take just 15 minutes a day, you will read completely through it in a year. If you cut out one 30 minute television program per day, can read through the Bible twice in a year."
We probably don't feel excited about God's Word cause we're not reading it. We can't get excited about something we don't really know. Here's a couple ideas.
You can download the free You Version app and follow one of their free 1 year Bible reading plans.
In The Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren said: “To be a healthy disciple of Christ, feeding on Gods Word must be your first priority. Jesus called it abiding. He said if you abide in my word then you are truly disciples of mine.”
It all comes back to figuring out what the ultimate authority is in your life. Cause it supersedes culture, tradition & emotion. It’s God’s word.
If the resolutions haven't worked out as planned, here's one way to adjust our strategy. Make God's Word our moral & spiritual authority. We can stand on that and navigate anything that life throws at us.

It was one of their first performances as a reunited band! This comes from Las Vegas music website AudioAddiktion.com.
Francis Chan says, “I think the fear of God failing us leads us to cover for God. This means we ask for less, expect less, and are satisfied with less because we are afraid to ask more or expect more. I can’t imagine how much it pains God to see His children hold back from relationship with the Holy Spirit out of fear that He won’t come through. How much it grieves Him to watch His children ignore the promises He’s made throughout the Bible due to the fear that those promises won’t be kept.” (From his book: Forgotten God)
I'm quite forgetful lately, for no good reason. Maybe it's just part of getting old? HOPE NOT! The other day on my show, we kicked around ideas on improving memory.
For anyone you know who'd like to be a little less forgetful, here are some highlights:
1. Write things down. Even if you forget to take the thing you wrote on with you, the mere act of writing can burn stuff into your brain.
2. Use technology: set up alarms, alerts, etc. on your computer and/or smart phone.
3. Exercise your brain! One person told me she plays Brain Age to keep her mind sharp. I personally attempt the same thing via Words With Friends, Scramble With Friends, and Hanging With Friends (what can I say...I like word games!).
