Verse of the Day:
“For I know the thoughts I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil” ~Jer 29:11

Quote of the Day:
“The sign of intelligence is that you are constantly wondering.  Idiots are always dead sure about every damn thing they are doing in their life.”

I have said for a very long time that I actually really LOVE t-swifts songwriting, I just usually prefer someone else singing the songs (Mine, Everything has Changed, I Knew You Were Trouble, Begin Again, Safe & Sound, Back to December Sparks Fly The Best Day).  Select ones I have still enjoyed (White Horse, Love Story) but the statement still holds true.  This beautifully written song is stunning in this cover sung by Seth Rinehart.

“Just grab my hand and don’t ever drop it
My love, they are the hunters, we are the foxes
And we run
Baby I know places we won’t be found
and they’ll be chasing our trace tryin’ to track us down
Cause I, I know places we can hide,
I know places”

Currently Listening to “Four Five Seconds” by Rihanna, Kanye, Paul McCartney

Verse of the Day:

~ Jer. 29:12

Quote of the Day:
“Have a heart that never hardens.”
~Charles Dickens

Excerpt of the Day:
“There is very little that is easy about blending nations and embracing other cultures and championing the freedom of people who look and sound different than what we are accustomed to.

But I will tell you what.

It is worth it.

And we can be America the Beautiful.”

Verse of the Day:
“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
~ Jer 29:12

Quote of the Day:
“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”
~Charles Dickens

Excerpt of the Day:
“We live in these moments. We live with these people — who teach me to listen, to forgive, to have patience, to understand. These are the moments that make a life, rounding out the jagged edges of lists and deadlines and everyday schedules.

But these moments come small and silent in the midst of our busy days. The won’t beg to be unwrapped, they simply present themselves and move softly on. May we have eyes to see them today.”
~ “Tuesday’s Unwrapped” by Emily Freeman

Currently listening to “Winter Song” by Sara Barielles & Ingrid Michaelson

Verse of the Day:
But blessed are those who trust in the Lord
and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
and they never stop producing fruit.”
~ Jer 17:7-8

Quote of the Day:
“We mustn’t doubt in the darkness what God has shown us in the light.
We mustn’t collapse when faced with adversity.
Following God’s will isn’t a matter of unveiling, but unfolding.
The One who knows the faraway future reveals each close-at-hand step as needed.”
~from “Red Sea Rules” by Robert J. Morgan – needed this today.  Got it from a great friend.

Verse of the Day:
“Pray the lord your god will show us what to do and where to go.”
~Jer 42:3

Quote of the Day:
“When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don’t stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven’t hoed,
And shout from where I am, What is it?
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.”
~Robert Frost, “A Time to Talk”

Verse of the Day:
“Long ago the Lord said to Israel:
“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.
With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.”
~Jer 31:3

Quotes from session 4 – Steven Furtick (Lead Pastor, Elevation Church):
Audacious Faith – 2 Kings 3:9-20
Only God can make it rain – We can do everything we can do to prepare….but only He can send the rain.”
“I can’t expect God’s blessing on my work unless I do it God’s way.”
“How are we going to get from inspiration to implementation? If all you have are some good ideas does not make you a visionary. It makes you a daydreamer. The difference between a vision and a day dream is the audacity to act and the faith to get started.”
“If the size of the vision is not intimidating to you there’s a good chance it’s insulting to God.” **Fav quote from the whole conference.
“I may not have all the resources right now, but I have exceeding promises in God’s word.”
“When the vision God has put inside you doesn’t match with what you see, close your eyes and keep going.”
“If we want to see the land filled with water then start digging ditches.”
I can say fairly confident that he was in my top 3 favorite presenters in the two days.
