23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

1 Peter 1:22

Hebrews 12:1-3
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

I have a 49 day race marked out for me. Will give updates about this unspoken path.

A New Bible

It recently became difficult for me to use my Scofield KJV or John McA ESV while everyone else in the room used an NIV.  I intended to order a Zondervon NIV, Reflecting God, with essays developed for the Sal Army.  Well, the Capts were given copies in 2000 and Cpt Deborah doesn't use hers much.  She owns many Bibles. SHE GAVE ME HER BIBLE.

Many interesting thoughts propelled by scripture today:

Submit to Husband  This means without explaining to him why he is wrong, and without telling all our friends why he is wrong.  He already knows exactly what I think.  Be gracious.  God is.  Edit: After gently explaining to him why he is wrong.

Put on the armour

We are MEANT to be changed by HIM to be like HIM.

Let me be the exception to the rule that "People do not change."

God's law enlightens the simple.  I've seen this a lot recently (Ps 119 Pe)  May I be simple.
