Call on the Lord and his strength
Be in the light

Show love to one another

Let the Lord guide you

Look to heaven above

Seek the Lord with all your heart

(June 30, 2007 Sat 7:44 AM CDT)

On the front page of the newspaper last night
there was a picture of someone
I used to work with over 22 years ago.
I recognized him right away.
God bless him and his family.

The lights inside my house are now
totally CFL and fluorescent tubes.
What do I do with all these old light bulbs?

"There is no condemnation now
for those who are in Christ Jesus."
Romans 8:1

Believe in Jesus.
Give your life to him.
Follow him.
Live for Jesus.
Recognize him instantly.

(June 29, 2007 Fri 8:17 AM CDT)

"Jesus approved the insight
of this answer and told him,
'You are not far from the reign of God.'
And no one had the courage
to ask him any more questions."
Mark 12:34

You are not far away.
Ask questions of Jesus.
Have courage.
Think about him often.

(June 28, 2007 Thu 6:08 AM CDT)

"We know that God makes
all things work together
for the good
of those who love God
and are called
according to his decree."
Romans 8:28

It will work out in the end.
God is in control.
He is running the show.
Love the Lord with all your heart.
Follow his ways.

Jesus said,
"I have come to the world as its light,
to keep anyone who believes in me
from remaining in the dark."
John 12:46

Come to the light.
See the day.
There is a new dawn.
Don't stay in the dark.
Come and meet Jesus.

(June 26, 2007 Tue 6:20 AM CDT)

"When Jesus saw the ten lepers, he responded,
'Go and show yourselves to the priests.'
On their way there they were cured.
One of them, realizing that he had been cured,
came back praising God in a loud voice.
He threw himself on his face at the feet of Jesus
and spoke his praises."
Luke 17:14-16

Return to the Lord.
Thank him for healing you.
Be grateful.
Give praise to him today.

(June 25, 2007 Mon 6:13 AM CDT)

Here are some pictures from the Walk/Run
at Lake Zorinsky in Omaha yesterday.
Do you like the backwards "O!" (Omaha)?
I was number 385.
It took me 59 minutes to walk 5K (3.1 miles).
One guy said he was a pastor and
had to get to church in 2 hours.
He was running with his Boston Marathon T-shirt.

"Do not stifle the Spirit.
Do not despise prophecies.
Test everything; retain what is good.
Avoid any semblance of evil."
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22

Go with the Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is here.
Call on the Spirit for prophecy.
Come, Spirit of the living God.

(June 24, 2007 Sun 5:26 AM CDT)

It is the day for the
Siena / Francis House Walk/Run.
God bless everyone there this morning here in Omaha.

"Rather, let us profess the truth in love
and grow to the full maturity of Christ the head.
Through him the whole body grows,
and with the proper functioning of the members
joined firmly together by each supporting ligament,
builds itself up in love."
Ephesians 4:15-16

I pray that you grow.
Grow in love.
Grow in faith.
Be part of the body.
We are the body of Christ.

(June 23, 2007 Sat 9:03 AM CDT)

"But God,
who gives heart to those
who are low in spirit,
gave me strength with
the arrival of Titus."
2 Corinthians 7:6

God will send people into your life.
They are there to help you.
They are sent to comfort you.
Thank the Lord for them.

(June 22, 2007 Fri 7:39 AM CDT)

"When they came to Jesus
and saw that he was already dead,
they did not break his legs.
These events took place
for the fulfillment of Scripture:
'Break none of his bones.'"
John 19:33,36

There were prophecies about the Messiah.
He would suffer and die for his people.
Jesus was the promised one.
He came to save us.
Thank you, Jesus.

(June 21, 2007 Thu 6:17 AM CDT)

"Jesus named 12 as his companions
whom he would send
to preach the good news;
they were likewise
to have authority to expel demons."
Mark 3:14-15

Jesus calls you by name.
Cast out evil in the name of Jesus.
You have been given authority.
Use this power from the Lord.
Tell others the good news.

(June 20, 2007 Wed 6:29 AM CDT)

Please, pray for someone who died
in a boating accident over the weekend.
God be with her family.

"The word of God continued to spread,
while at the same time
the number of the disciples
in Jerusalem enormously increased."
Acts 6:7

We pray for the good news to spread.
We pray for an increase in faith.
May there be a great increase in believers.
Jesus, we ask this in your name.

(June 19, 2007 Tue 6:08 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"Salt is good,
but if salt loses its flavor
what good is it for seasoning?"
Luke 14:34

Give flavor to life.
Be a friend.
Ask the Lord to teach you.
This is the season.

(June 18, 2007 Mon 6:09 AM CDT)

"Some are strong in chariots;
some in horses;
but we are strong in the name
of the Lord, our God."
Psalms 20:8 (or 7)

We are weak.
The Lord is strong.
Rely on the Lord and his power.
Trust in him.
That will make you strong.

(June 17, 2007 Sun 8:31 AM CDT)

I used the 3 HP Recovery DVDs
to finally restore my PC yesterday.
It took about 5 hours.
Windows XP is working again.
I am missing a few data files.
I should have backed them up on another hard drive.

"At about this time,
certain prophets came down
from Jerusalem to Antioch.
One of them named Agabus
was inspired to stand up and proclaim
that there was going to be a severe famine
all over the world."
Acts 11:27-28

Are there prophets on the earth in 2007?
They are here.
What are they saying?
Are they being heard?
Pray for the inspiration of God in 2007.
Pray that the prophets will speak up and be heard.

(June 16, 2007 Sat 9:03 AM CDT)

Yesterday I downloaded and tested the
Safari web browser.
I think it destroyed my Windows XP system.
I am not sure if it did or not.
Windows XP would not start up later in the day.
I have to reinstall Windows XP today.
At the moment I'm using Vista.
I can boot my PC two ways.
I usually use Windows XP.
I don't really "like" Vista.
It is too "different."
I am not used to it.
It has too much security.
I tried running the 3 HP Recovery DVDs and
that failed too.
It could not read the DVDs in various places.
The 3 DVDs worked on November 17, 2006
to recover my PC then.
It seems I have to reinstall the OS every few months.
Vista just rebooted itself just now.
It has a mind of its own.
It wanted to install some updates.
It could have at least asked me --- yes or no.

"My God in turn will supply your needs fully,
in a way worthy of
his magnificent riches in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:19

The Lord will take care of you.
He is your protector.
Go to him.
Lean on his promises.
He is the Lord of all creation.

(June 15, 2007 Fri 7:51 AM CDT)

I know the family of someone from Omaha
that died in the Iraq War recently.
God be with them at this difficult time.
Pray for them.

"Have no love for the world
nor the things that the world affords.
If anyone loves the world,
the Father's love has no place in him,
for nothing that the world affords
comes from the Father.
Carnal allurements, enticements for the eye,
the life of empty show ---
all these are from the world.
And the world with its seductions is passing away
but the man who does God's will endures forever."
1 John 2:15-17

We live in the world,
but we should not get too comfortable.
Don't hold on too tight.
Keep perspective.
Live a simple life.
Keep the Lord first place in your life.
Do the will of the Father.

(June 14, 2007 Thu 6:16 AM CDT)

"The proof that you are sons
is the fact that
God sent forth into our hearts
the Spirit of his Son
which cries out
'Abba! (Father!)'
You are no longer a slave but a son!
And the fact that you are a son
makes you an heir, by God's design."
Galatians 4:6-7

You are a son or daughter of God.
Call out to your Father in heaven.
Talk to him.
Receive your blessings.
This is God's design.

(June 13, 2007 Wed 6:13 AM CDT)

I was woke up at about 2 AM this morning
by a slow beeping sound.
I thought it was a smoke detector
with a weak battery,
so I tried to turn on a light in my bedroom
and the switch did not work.
It was a very strange feeling.
The electricity was not working.
I found a flashlight.
I keep 3 in the house.
The beeping was a carbon monoxide detector
that was on battery power
instead of the electricity from the house
in another room.
I pulled the battery out of the detector
and called OPPD which I have memorized 1-800-554-OPPD.
It is an automated phone system to report a power outage.
You hit the "one" key about 10 times and hang up.
The power came back on in about an hour and 10 minutes.
I had to reset most of the clocks in the house
with the time from my wristwatch
when I got up today.

"I am sure of this much:
that he who has begun
the good work in you
will carry it through to completion,
right up to the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

We do get warnings in our life.
Are you being faithful?
The Lord will return when we don't expect him.
Be ready.
Prepare yourself for the return of the light.
Will anything happen when you flip the switch?

(June 12, 2007 Tue 6:10 AM CDT)

"From this time on,
many of his disciples broke away
and would not remain in his company any longer.
Jesus then said to the Twelve,
'Do you want to leave me too?'
Simon Peter answered him,
'Lord, to whom shall we go?
You have the words of eternal life.
We have come to believe;
we are convinced that you are God's holy one.'"
John 6:66-69

Where will you go?
Who will you follow?
Jesus is the one.
Learn about him.
Remain with him.

(June 11, 2007 Mon 6:19 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"I assure you,
there is no man born of woman
greater than John.
Yet the least born
into the kingdom of God
is greater than he."
Luke 7:28

You think of how great John the Baptist was.
He was the messenger sent before Jesus.
The least Christian is greater than him.
That is saying something.
Believe in Jesus.
Give your heart to him today.
Be born of the Spirit.

(June 10, 2007 Sun 6:37 AM CDT)

"Then they in turn will ask:
'Lord, when did we see you hungry
or thirsty or away from home or
needing clothes or ill or in prison and
not attend to your needs?'
He will answer them:
'I assure you, as often as you neglected
to do it to one of these least ones,
you neglected to do it to me.'
These will go off to eternal punishment
and the just to eternal life."
Matthew 25:44-46

Remember the poor.
Help those in need.
Visit the sick and comfort them.
Feed the hungry.
Jesus asks you to do this.

(June 9, 2007 Sat 9:49 AM CDT)

Jesus replied,
"Scripture has it:
'Not on bread alone is man to live
but on every utterance that comes from
the mouth of God.'"
Matthew 4:4

Read the Bible.
Read what God has to say.
This is your daily bread.
You need it to live.

(June 8, 2007 Fri 8:15 AM CDT)

This is from our Bible Study last night.

David said to Goliath,
"For the battle is the Lord's,
and he shall deliver you into our hands."
1 Samuel 17:47

The Lord is on your side.
Let him fight your battles.
Stand with him in faith.
The victory is yours in Christ.

(June 7, 2007 Thu 6:11 AM CDT)

"The chief priests, the scribes, and
the elders also joined in the jeering:
'He saved others
but he cannot save himself!
So he is the king of Israel!
Let's see him come down from that cross
and then we will believe in him.'"
Matthew 27:41-42

Jesus was dying on the cross.
The crowd yelled at him.
He stayed on the cross
and suffered and died for us.
Believe in him.
He loves you.

(June 6, 2007 Wed 6:14 AM CDT)

"O Lord, your kindness reaches to heaven;
your faithfulness, to the clouds.
Your justice is like the mountains of God;
your judgments, like the mighty deep;
man and beast you save, O Lord."
Psalms 36:6-7 or 5-6

The Lord is kind and merciful.
Go to him.
Ask for help.
Seek his forgiveness.
He will restore your life.
Look to the clouds.
He will come to save you.

(June 5, 2007 Tue 6:15 AM CDT)

"Strive for peace with all men,
and for that holiness without which
no one can see the Lord."
Hebrews 12:14

Sin puts distance between you and God.
Ask for forgiveness.
Seek after holiness.
Restore your communications with the Lord.
Jesus, forgive my sins.
I want to be close to you.
Teach me, Lord.

(June 4, 2007 Mon 6:16 AM CDT)

"We brought nothing into this world,
nor have we the power
to take anything out.
If we have food and clothing
we have all that we need.
Those who want to be rich
are falling into temptation and a trap.
They are letting themselves be captured
by foolish and harmful desires
which drag men down to ruin and destruction.
The love of money is the root of all evil.
Some men in their passion for it
have strayed from the faith,
and have come to grief amid great pain."
1 Timothy 6:7-10

Do you have a place to stay?
Do you have food to eat?
Do you have clothes to wear?
You have enough.
Ask the Lord to teach you about money
and how to use it.

(June 3, 2007 Sun 8:45 AM CDT)

This morning I'm reading about
Team Hoyt .
They are in a Triathlon race today in Ludlow, MA.
God bless them.

"May the Lord increase you and
make you overflow with love
for one another and for all,
even as our love does for you.
May he strengthen your hearts,
making them blameless and holy
before our God and Father
at the coming of our Lord Jesus
with all his holy ones."
1 Thessalonians 3:12-13

The Lord be with you today.
May you be all he wants you to be.
Live your life.

(June 2, 2007 Sat 11:09 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"The light is among you only a little longer.
Walk while you still have it
or darkness will come over you.
The man who walks in the dark
does not know where he is going.
While you have the light,
keep faith in the light;
thus you will become sons of light."
John 12:35-36

Light is important.
You need it.
You don't want to trip and fall.
Jesus is the light.
You need him.
He will keep you from harm.
Seek the light.

(June 1, 2007 Fri 6:18 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with all your strength,
and with all your mind;
and your neighbor as yourself."
Luke 10:27

Check yourself.
Do you love God?
Do you love your neighbor?
Is it a sincere love?
Do you put your heart into it?
Ask the Lord for help with this.
