Sharpen Your Ax

Happy Monday Everyone!

Because there are 31 chapters in the book of proverbs and every verse is so amazingly dimensional, some people read a chapter from proverbs each day… and they repeat this routine every month! I’ve been doing it 20 years, and what a difference this has made in my life!

Since today is August 23, here is something from Proverbs 23, verse 12 “Commit yourself to instruction; atune your ears to hear words of knowledge.”

I believe one of the great differences between success and failure is the presence or absence of knowledge and wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 10:10 says, “Using a dull ax requires great strength, so sharpen the blade. That’s the value of wisdom; it helps you succeed.”

When I was 19, I was an empty pod waiting to be developed.

  • Thank God for the endless beauties of His written word and the desire he gives us to feed on it’s timeless truths.
  • Thank God for all of the amazing authors in our world, and all of the great books they have written to give us advantages!
  • Thank God for the people who inspire us to read lots of books!
  • Thank God for you, the people who read my blogs!

If you’re in a rut today, commit yourself to [new] instruction; atune your ears to hear [new] words of knowledge. Make a new commitment to reading your Bible, everyday! Go to a book store and pick up a few great books! Register for a conference! Go to a church where spiritual wisdom is pouring out like rain!

Today, I’m reading a new book, Appoint Us A King from my dear friend Gail Strother. It’s not in the bookstores yet… I’m privileged with a pre-published manuscript and the honor of writing a review for the back cover. This book is blowing me away! Unbelievable! Please pray for Gail’s success and thank God you’ll all be able to read this masterpiece very soon!

I’m wondering… what are you reading, how are you currently sharpening your ax for greater strength?

I just finished praying for you all. Make this a most triumphant day! With much love…

Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!

  1. I STARTED READING THE BIBLE A COUPLE MONTHS AGO. ALMOST IN THE NEW TESTIMENT. I’VE LEARNED ALOT, AND MY BIBLE HAS ALOT OF HIGHLIGHTED VERSES. NEVER READ THE WHOLE THING BEFORE SO I TOLD MYSELF THAT I AM GOING TO DO IT. HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE.

    • I was traveling yesterday Elaine… true, it's been quiet. Some of our regular blog pals have been ultra busy lately. Levi's brought some new life to the tribe… I love the way he talks to "everyone" with his comments. So far I haven't done anything to promote the blogs… and I've been thinking so much lately about what we can do to invite a 100,000 more members. Then we would really start to have some fun!

  2. Of course I am reading the bible daily but I also have been reading the Love Revolution by Joyce Meyer, that I have many times talked about with our women’s group. I know I have said this before but this book gives a new meaning to the word LOVE! It is awesome! We as Christians need a new revelation about what it mean to truly love as Christ loves! I have recommended this book to many others and pray they receive as much as I have! Have a great week!
