It was a great day!
My cousin and I spent some time at a woman’s event
about genes and jeans at St. Luke’s Hospital,
then we enjoyed some FREE tickets
to the Ming Dynasty exhibit at the art museum!!!
Before eating dinner at Anchors,
afew of us stopped at the new Culver’s in the Valley for ice-cream..YUMMY!
One of the volunteers offered to blenderize my food for me again…
when he found out I had braces…
I’m not willing to eat food that way… yet…
After Anchors a few of us met up with an old friend
I have not seen since a bonfire in the fall!!!
Pastor Jeff spoke:
Learn to think God’s thoughts,
then you will do God’s actions.
Bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
Forsake our thoughts
take on God’s ways
Warning: Don’t give yourself over to what doesn’t satisfy.
God’s thoughts are laid out in the Word.
God loves you.
He sent His son to die for you.
Be renewed in your mind.
vs. 2 = Change the way you think
Familiarize yourself with who God is…
your rights as Christians – who you are in Christ.
You are FREE from lack.
God meets all your needs.
Psalm 8: 3-7
Spend time staring at the stars in the sky above like David,
see alllllll that God has made!

Get ahold of the good report!

Get ahold of the Word.
His thoughts are toward you.
God will speak essentials into your spirit.
I Tim 2: 1 = pray for those in authority.
God will have His way!
The best info we can get are God’s thoughts.
Get your melon straightened out by getting into God’s Word.
(This worked for me just this morning!
I woke up early… even exercised!
But I didn’t have peace…
lots of thoughts racing through my head…
so, I listened to the Word on my ipod while I ironed some clothes for work:
and before I knew it = PEACE!)
