  • M. shared from Draw the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge by Mark Batterson
    All of us go through times of spiritual, relational, or financial famines. It seems like the harvest will never come. And the temptation is to stop planting, but my advice is simple: sow a seed. Keep praying, keep obeying, keep giving, keep loving, keep serving.
    Note: Remember, keep sowing. Keep going.
  • M. shared from Draw the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge by Mark Batterson
    We often think of prayer as nothing more than words spoken to God, but maybe it’s more than that. Prayer is not a monologue; it’s a dialogue. We speak to God with everything from words to groans to thoughts. And God speaks to us through dreams, desires, promptings, impressions, and ideas.
    Note: I often forget that he's speaking back to me.
  • M. shared from The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears by Mark Batterson
    Drawing prayer circles starts with identifying your Jericho. You’ve got to define the promises God wants you to stake claim to, the miracles God wants you to believe for, and the dreams God wants you to pursue. Then you need to keep circling until God gives you what He wants and He wills. That’s the goal. Now here’s the problem: Most of us don’t get what we want simply because we don’t know what we want.
    Note: Truth.
  • M. shared from The Message Remix New Testament: 2010 Student Planner Edition by Eugene H. Peterson
    Convinced that no human being can please God by self-improvement, we believed in Jesus as the Messiah so that we might be set right before God by trusting in the Messiah, not by trying to be good.
    Note: I constantly forget/ignore this. May I never do it again. And when I do - let me be humbled and reminded once more.
