Thy Righteousness in Heaven – Excellent words from Petra. “Why is that mirror still showing the same old sinner, or worse? I’ve tried. I’ve prayed. I’ve studied. I’ve believed. If grace cannot fail me, then what? Did I fail grace, or worse, did I fail to get it?”
Book Recommendation: Why Revival Tarries – Looks like a worthwhile read.
Reel Quick – It took awhile, but this week, I reached a marker of 101 reviews on my movie review blog. *pause to pat self on back* And on we go…
Prayer Request – Continued prayer for Joel Garner would be most appreciated as he battles severe illness.
Indifferent – A superb, thought-provoking short story from Michael Wright. (Discretion is advised for younger readers, due to mature themes and some strong violence).
Prayer Update – On Craig Boyd, who is currently recovering from surgery.
Jack the Huckster – Great stuff from RT. “Since we are constantly being offered new experiences and well packaged sanctification techniques, we must continually guard against growing tired of Christ Jesus our High Priest, Prophet and King and trading him for something else.”
The Law of Sacrifice [Caution: Mature] – From the Art of Manliness website: “…sacrifice isn’t purely altruistic. The best definition of sacrifice is this: ‘To forfeit something for something else considered to have a greater value.’ (American Heritage Dictionary, emphasis mine). Sacrifice does not mean giving up something for nothing; it means giving up one thing for something else we believe is worth more.”
The Dark Knight Rises – The very first teaser trailer for the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise. It reveals just enough to wet the appetite… and no more. Arrgh.
“Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for – because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.” ~ Peter Marshall
