For the Cohort, I’m trying to write again

Thoughts for the guys

Cohort guys, I am reading through a couple of good books to help me in my daily disciplines. The Valley and the Vision and Note to Self by Joe Thorn. In addition to listening to scripture each morning, I am making time throughout the day to read these two books.

Valley of Vision is a collection of short prayers and devotions by several different Puritan writers. Note to Self is short excepts from scripture and thoughts from Joe as a way to preach the Gospel to yourself.

Today the passage I read was from Psalm 100:4-5. Joe reminded me that my life needs to one of thankfulness no matter what the circumstances, because God is constant. Therefore I should my life should be marked by thankfulness.

So what are your practices, what books, plans, or disciplines are you developing to stay in the word, be reminded of it throughout your day and living in obedience to the commands you see in scripture?


Jay and ran a couple of miles Saturday and I am hoping to do some more in the morning while in S. IL

  1. I’m reading through the Bible and highlighting any passages that directly or indirectly point towards how to be saved. I started with the New Testament and am now up to 1 Kings in the Old Testament.

    I’m also memorizing key verses to deal with my deep-seeded causes of sin:

    Boredom – Pr 6:9 “How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep?”
    Hunger – Ps 119:103 “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
    Anger – 1 Jn 3:15 “Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him.”
    Anxiety – Mt 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?”
    Loneliness- Ps 17:8 “Keep me as the apple of your eye, hide me in the shadow of your wings”
    Tiredness – Is 40:31 “but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
