ARE YOU TRYING TO REACH HEAVEN IN A ROW BOAT OR ARE YOU GLIDING ALONG IN A SAIL BOAT - 01/27/08 12:40 PM
ROMANS 10:13,21 For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved(13)But to Israel he says: "All day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and contrary people" (21) Are you still trying to prove your righteousness by works? Do you have everything under control?Or have you admitted that righteousness comes from the GRACE OF GOD?Do you really believe your can work your way to righteousness? Or that you can do it on your own? If so how is that working out? Chances are not so good. Itis by the grace of our Lord JESUS that we (16 comments)
ONCE AGAIN THE BIBLE PUTS THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE FOR ME - 01/26/08 08:23 PM
Lat night as I was getting ready to turn in I finished my nightly prayers and decided to read some scripture. I try to make it a point at night to just read, no stdying nothing for school , just a few minutes in the word. I have a rather beatup promise keepers bible that I keep next to my bed. Quite often it winds up on the floor and the book marks don't always stay in place, infact sometimes i think the are moved by a the Holy Spirit. Last Night i picked it up and decided it (20 comments)
THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT - 01/25/08 06:35 PM
GALATIANS 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. When Jesus ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father he left us the Holy Spirit, the counselor to help us in our daily walk.As the Holy Spirit is part of the triune God its as if he never left us because as he says he will never leave us. GALATIANS 5:22,23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. What could be better than walking in the (16 comments)
A GOOD DESCRIPTION OF THE BIBLE - 01/24/08 10:54 AM
This past sunday before my pastor preached on a rather difficult passage of the Bible(Romans9:10-24)he had us first reaffirm our belief's that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. He then read a passage which he said he did not know where it originated from but that it was very compelling. Out of memory I new that this passage is in the introductory pages of Gideon Bibles. I had my PWT( personal workers testament) and read along. It is a little long but I would like to share it with you. The Bible contains the mind of God, the state (23 comments)
MARCH FOR LIFE 2008 - 01/23/08 09:46 PM
Yesterday I attended the 35 th annual March for Life in Washington DC. It was well attended a conservative guess would put the count well over 200,000. Last year the estimate was 200,000 and there were many more this year.The rally was a little over 2 hours as more and more Congressmen are willing to come out as Pro -Life. The rally featured a taped message from President Bush which was very uplifting. rwesident Bush has been a strong proponent of right to life issues and will be missed. There are alot of encouraging signs in the movement. Not the least (14 comments)
CONGRATULATIONS SIMON - 01/23/08 12:37 AM
Although I left a rather long comment it just isn't enough. This is what our country is all about. I for one still believe this is the greatest country in the world no matter what the New York Time and NBC say. Simon is a great testimony to this. Not only did he play by all the rules wait a long time and spend a good chunk of money , he did it happily and he is proud to become a citizen. He knows the value of so many things that we take for granted. He can wait to vote, (15 comments)
WHERE I WAS LAST YEAR, WHERE I WILL BE TOMORROW AND FOR AS LONG AS ITS NEEDED - 01/21/08 06:02 PM
Tomorrow January 22nd is the annual March for Life in Wshington D.C. There have now been over 40 million murdered babies since that horrid day in 1973. This is a Utube of last years march, it will give you a feel for how many people are there. I can tell you that over 200,000 show up but you wont here about it on the news. So for those of you who can't attend here is a little preview. Please remember the marchers and more important all of the lives that have been damaged in your prayers .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHBM4Uxo3yg&eurl=http://www.marchforlife.org/ (14 comments)
BIG BLUE HEADING TO ARIZONA - 01/20/08 09:24 PM
Well Eli is starting to prove his critics wrong. At least Archie has one son going to the Super Bowl. In typical Giant fashion they gave Green Bay plenty of chances to beat them, but Eli was magnificent under terrible conditions and the Big Blue Defense held when they had to. Now we just have to take care of them pesky Patriots GO GIANTS
BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME - 01/19/08 03:19 PM
This morning I was at my weekly Gideon prayer breakfast and I felt like i had more than usual on my mind. Life kind of closing in even though i knew i have alot to be thankful for. I was really looking for the Rhema word of God Somehting to put me at ease. ell just as we started our prayer while i quieted myself and got ready for my turn and prayed along this song came on in the background. There was my answer, I,ll be fine because he loves me.http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bvou2XxB5Cs&feature=related It reminds me of another of my favorite service praise (25 comments)
IS THE WORD OF GOD A PRIORITY IN YOUR LIFE - 01/18/08 08:43 PM
Are any of us going through rough times? Are there not always obstacles on the horizon? Do we not as Christians require faith to help us through? How do we strehgthen our faith when our lives our crumbling around us. ROMANS 10:17"SO THEN FAITH COMETH BY HEARING,AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD". I for one never want to try to go through life without being in the presence of my Lord again. We are so lucky he has given us a way to grow closer to him. We have prayer and we have his WORD, THE HOLY BIBLE. We need to take (20 comments)
THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH - 01/17/08 07:17 PM
ROMANS 6:23 For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. I choose not to be specific because it is not my desire to call anyone out though I did feel it necessary to write this post. I am also going to keep it uncharacteristically short. I was reading another blog and in one of the comments a young lady stated that she does not believe in sin. I just want to say that I intend to pray for her and ask others to do so also. Sin is real (18 comments)
THERE IS JOY IN THE MEADOWLANDS - 01/13/08 09:19 PM
GIANTS 21 COYBOYS 17 What else is there to say. To a Giant fan it doesn,t get much better. Of course I'd love to see big blue make it to the superbowl, but as i said friday, beating the Cowboys in the playoff makes the whole year. It's too bad that Peyton and the Colts lost. There will be no Manning Bowlbut hey next weeks game against the pack should be a good one and you just never know what can happen on any given Sunday. GO GIANTS (12 comments)
PSALM 23 - 01/09/08 05:39 PM
The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want:He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His names sake. Yea , though I walk throught the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the (27 comments)
GIANTS 24 TAMPA BAY 14 - 01/06/08 06:12 PM
Being as we have so many members from Florida in this group, I felt it was my duty(Being from New Jersey) to post this very important bit of sporting information. But don,t feel to bad about the Bucs going out in the first round at least they were better than the Dolphins.ON TO DALLAS (3 comments)
A CLOSED DOOR DOES NOT MEAN FAILURE - 01/06/08 05:46 PM
The title of this blog is a quote from a book I am reading by Rick Renner called "Dressed To Kill". The book is about Spiritual Warfare but it is written in easy to understand language. ROMANS 8 :28 Tells us"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God,to those who are called according to his purpose". Even when things are not going well in our lives as long as we love God he can take those circumstances and turn them around into something quite possibly even better than we had imagined.Just when I thought my (24 comments)
IF I DID IT SO CAN YOU - 01/04/08 06:57 PM
I know this is the time of year for New Years resolutions, most of which have already been broken. Yesterday was three years since i had a cigarette. I started smoking steady at 13, by 18 i was a stready 2 to 3 packs a day. I smoked all the time everywhere. if I woke up in the middle of the night to use the facilities I had one lit before my feet hit the floor. If I can quit anyone can. But you have to be mentally ready. Don't tell yourself or anyone else you are going to try to (34 comments)

A HUMBLING EXPERIENCE - 01/03/08 08:04 PM
Those of you who read my posts on a regular basis know by now that I am a Gideon. It is a ministry that I love. It is the ministry that made me realize that I want a life in the ministry which is why I am studying for my Biblical degree.Well today I went on a another distribution. Myself one and one other Gideon (our state chaplain) went to the areas main hospital to check rooms for bibles. We met up with the hospital chaplain (a truly remarkable man) we went over a few rules and guidelines , as it (21 comments)
Iowa Caucuses - 01/02/08 09:05 PM
Ok I,m pretty sure i didn,t spell that right but here we go any way. less than 24 hours now.I Think Huckabee wins for the Republicans. If he doesn,t and he loses by more than 5% he's through.Thompson need to place in the top three. If Huckabee wins and Thompson doesn,t place in the top three he's through.Romney has plenty of money to keep going ,but after all he has spent in Iowa if he does worse than second it could get tough for him, especially with McCain Rising in New Hampshire. Rudy is puting all his cards in Florida but (4 comments)
PRAYER REQUEST - 01/01/08 06:53 PM
Hello friends I know it's not unusual for me to put up prayer requests but what different is this one does not involve any sickness and it's for myself. I have to take another exam tomorrow and it is crucial that I score high on this one. Fortunately all my research papers have recieved excellent grades but I bombed the last two exams.My mind is going to explode if I read this one more time tonight and I feel really good right now but still nervous. So If any of my friends read this tonight or tomorrow morning I would really (24 comments)
A LIFE CHANGING DAY TRIP JANUARY 22 - 01/01/08 09:37 AM
Well my first blog of the New Year so lets jump right in to my favorite subject. For anyone within a days ride of Washington DC you still have plenty of time. In fact you still have plenty of time to put a bus trip together. On January 22 Washington will be hosting the annual RIGHT TO LIFE MARCH. I was there last year for the first time and let me tell you it was an awesome experience. Of coure the national network news stations don,t cover it and any reports that do make it through are significantly downplayed. I heard (12 comments)
