Funny Friday Quote

Funny Friday Quote:  Jeff Rovin

   “The doctor decided to put his patient on a diet.   “I want you to eat regularly for two days,”  the physician directed.   “Then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two more weeks.  The next time I see you, you should have lost at least five pounds.”

   When the man returned, he had lost twenty pounds.  “You did this just by following my instructions?”  the doctor asked.

   The fellow nodded.  “I’ll tell you, though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day.”

   “From hunger?”

   “No, from skipping!”

Bible verse of the day:  Psalm 8:1

“O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!”


Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for such an awesome day!  Today as I venture out into what Your day holds for me, I pray that You show me Your ways and lead me in Your truth.  Examine me Father that I may  walk in integrity.  Lord, I wish to only seek and serve You the rest of my days here on this earth.  I love You Father and I pray for a weekend of continued service and worship to You in the hopes that lives may be changed.  Father, those that don’t know You and don’t have a personal relationship with You, may You stir in them the love that You have so blessed me with that their only desire will be to seek You out.

In Jesus Name I pray,

Strange thing about sheep

                                                                                                               Story of the day:  Strange thing about sheep

   Phillip Keller, once a shepherd himself, in his book A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23, “relates that the strange thing about sheep is that because of their makeup, it is almost impossible for them to be made to lie down unless four requirements are met.  First, due to their timidity, they must be free from all fear.  Next, because of their sociability, they must be free from friction with others of their kind.  Third, they must be free from flies or parasites if they are to relax.  Lastly, they will not lie down unless free from hunger.  It is only the shepherd who can provide release from all these anxieties.  As our Good Shepherd, the Lord meets all these needs for us, so that we can “lie down in green pastures,” with our souls restored by His care.”

Quote of the day:  Author Unknown

“Peace is not the absence of trouble.  Peace is the presence of God.”

Bible verse of the day:  Psalm 23:1

“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.”


Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for being my Shepherd.  Because of You, I can rest assured that my needs will be taken care of and that I, just like the sheep, can freely lie down in green pastures without a worry.  Father, You are with me every single day of my life and because of that, I shouldn’t fear anything.  Thank You for comforting me when I need comforting and for restoring me when I need restoration.  Father, I thank You for this day and I pray for guidance and wisdom in all that is brought my way this day.

In Jesus Name I pray,
