I guess I should work as hard on godliness as I do on fitness. What a concept!

1 Timothy 4:8-9
For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.

I was headed for disaster but I did not die. Now I read the Bible and get to recount to you the deeds of the Lord.

Psalm 118:17-18
I shall not die, but I shall live,
and recount the deeds of the Lord.
The Lord has disciplined me severely,
but he has not given me over to death.

It is so easy to be fooled: the internet, news, facebook, music, twitter, our devices in general! It only takes a few minutes a day to get back to the core of life. If you want satisfaction instead of craziness let yourself be filled.

Colossians 2:8-10
See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,
and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.

I love it when a good prophesy comes true. The light came one night in Bethlehem. Even now his glory is seen upon us.

Isaiah 60:1-3
Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will arise upon you,
and his glory will be seen upon you.
And nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your rising.

I fit into every one of the categories below. I lived in darkness. I could not bear what the wrath of God brought me. When I asked for His help to stop behaving badly, He gave me light. I want to shine for Him.

Ephesians 5:5-8
For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous that is, an idolater, has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Therefore do not become partners with them;
for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

I gave a couple of talks in Richmond, Virginia this week, about how God had saved my life. These verses explain what God is up to. Always.

Isaiah 55:10-11
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,

Changing Seasons, Richmond, Speakers Series
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
