Vigor in Life

“The vigor of our spiritual life will be in exact proportion to the place held by the Bible in our life and thoughts. I solemnly state this from the experience of fifty-four years.
The first three years after conversion I neglected the Word of God. Since I began to search it diligently the blessing has been wonderful.
I have read the Bible through one hundred times, and always with increasing delight. Each time it seems like a new book to me.
Great has been the blessing from consecutive, diligent, daily study. I look upon it as a lost day when I have not had a good time over the Word of God.”

Anger Management

Stepping Stones to Anger Management
(Developed by Jason Yoder)

  1. Admit that anger is a normal human emotion and that you can and do experience anger
  2. Determine with whom you are angry: a) another person(s), b) yourself, c) God, d) the world
  3. Sort out the issues at work in the situation – Is your anger righteous, self-centered, or some combination?  Even if your emotion of anger is justified, what actions of anger are appropriate?
  4. Deal with the anger appropriately (Ephesians 4:26-27)
  5. Remember who you are and whose you are (Psalm 37:8, 39-40; Romans 12:19, 21)
  6. Thank God for what he is doing to form Christ in you (Galatians 4:19)

More like Jesus

More like Jesus would I be, Let my Savior dwell in me;
Fill my soul with peace and love, make me gentle as a dove;
More like Jesus while I go, pilgrim in this world below;
Poor in spirit would I be; let my Savior dwell in me.

If He hears the raven’s cry, if His ever watchful eye
Marks the sparrows when they fall, surely He will hear my call;
He will teach me how to live, all my sinful thoughts forgive;
Pure in heart I still would be; let my Savior dwell in me.

More like Jesus when I pray, more like Jesus day by day;
May I rest me by His side, where the tranquil waters glide;
Born of Him, through grace renewed, by His love my will subdued,
Rich in faith I still would be; let my Savior dwell in me.
