Praise Thursday

Lilly and I started a new section of the devotional by James Banks called “Let’s Pray”.

Today we prefaced for the prayers we are going to share next time about everyday prayers.

Here what we said:
Sometimes we rush into heavens throne room with a list. Though God’s word encourages us to “come boldly unto the throne of our gracious God”, there are moments when I wonder if I’m a little too bold. When my mind is filled with the things of this earth, I can only imagine what it looks like in heaven…
Imagine the father, seated on the throne and ruling in glory, “high and exalted.’ Around his throne, our seraphs, Hiding their faces and in worship before the awesome wonder of the ancient of days.  And like a child bursting in without knocking, here I come, making all of my wants and wishes known.
Rough as that picture is, there still a grace-filled beauty to it. I am a child, a child of the father saved by faith in his crucified son. I can come boldly and entirely without fear because God is “Abba, father “. He knows my daily needs and cares deeply about them. It’s not priority he’s concerned about but it’s the condition of my heart. And the more my heart matures, the more it will be in rhythm with his own. God wants us to grow and “mature’ in our understanding of what it means to have a relationship with him.
Andrew Murray explains, the little boy may ask of the father only what it needs for itself; and yet it soon learn is to say, “give it some for my sister too.’ But the grown-up  Son, who only gives for the father’s interest and takes charge of the fathers business, asks more largely and gets all of that is asked.
Prayers about everyday needs, help us maintain perspective. They are not only about things necessary for life on earth – they’re also about our deepest need:  A growing relationship with our father in heaven. Jesus makes this priority for our living and asking very clear: “seek the kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” God wants us to bring our every day needs to him with faith and expectation so that we will live in loving dependence on him and you know the blessing of being caught up in his purposes. He is the “author of life”,  and we exist for him and because of him. And his kindness, he wants to bless us and drop us near with love that gives life to our souls. There is no blessing greater than God.

Mystery Monday

Today Joe and I played Mystery Box! We only got to technically do two ‘senses’ tests. This is because when we tried the smell test, our item wasn’t as smelly as expected! But we were able to complete both the shake test and the taste test!

Our Mystery Box item today was a disposable dental floss pick!


Congrats to Jennifer from Fredericktown who guessed our item and won a $5 gift card to Troyers of Apple Valley!

Mystery Monday – 10/19

Today was Mystery Monday on the Afternoon Drive!

Joe hid something in the Mystery Box, and after doing the hearing, smell, and touch tests, Sandy from Howard called in and correctly guessed that the item in the box was an emery board, or nail file.

We told you all about the Feel It, Film It contest, where you can enter to win 2 tickets to see TobyMac, Colton Dixon, Britt Nicole, and Hollyn. You can find all the details on that contest over here.

Our Word of the Day was germane, an adjective that means relevant to a subject under consideration. You can read more on that here.

The new film, Woodlawn, from the Erwin Brothers (October Baby, Mom’s Night Out) debuted on 1,553 screens this past weekend.  The true story of high school football in Birmingham, Alabama in 1973, grossed just over $4 million and was 9th at the box office. Woodlawn was 7th in average gross per screen.

Make sure to head over here to register your pastor for Clergy Appreciation Month, where we’re giving away a lot of prizes to a lot of deserving pastors.

Have an awesome week!
