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
