Intentions, Choice


It's Wk. 8! Here's what I've learned so far:

S.   James 4:1-8

O.  v.1 - We desire what we cannot have and want what we do not need
      v.2 - We have not because we ask not
      v.3 - However, when we ask, what are our true intentions?
      v.4 - We can't serve two masters.
      v.5 - His spirit resides in us
      v.6 - God gives grace to the humble and sets himself against the proud
      v.7 - Submit yourself to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you
      v.8 - Draw closer to God and he will draw closer to you.

A.  Ask God to create in me a clean heart and renewed mind
      Be not a friend to the world.  Remain humble.
      Remain "intentional":
     Guard my heart, filter my thoughts, emotions and actions

P.   I must always pray.

P.S. I admire the promise/motto Courtney ("Walk with the King") and Angela ("Love God Greatly") leave us with when we visit.   After much thought and prayer,  I was given a promise that spoke to my heart:

"Choose Life"
Deuteronomy 30:19:
  19I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.

Until next time....


  1. Now I see what you're talking about..."Choose Life"! That is a wonderful motto and a great promise we are given every time we choose life. I love it!

  2. Thank you Stacie! I truly appreciate those words(:

    Bless you friend!
