Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Monday Links and Bullets 2.18.13

Hey all.  I’m excited to get today’s links and bullets posted.  So, without further ado . . .

WEEKLY LINKS

Link of the Week

PARENTING: Here is an article that contains some researched based ways to avoid drug and alcohol problems in teens. (Disclaimer: I know nothing is foolproof, but this article is definitely food for thought).

Christian Faith

BELIEF: What a nifty little article to help you think about belief.  Definitely worth your time.

FOLLOWING JESUS: Don’t look to someone else’s plan, and get serious about it!

LOVE: In a word, display it “ridiculously”.

ABORTION: Oh how powerful these pictures are.  Please take a look – this is LIFE!

BULLET THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK

PERSONAL:

  • Took a chance on the chocolate Chex cereal.  Great stuff!
  • Seems like being up early on Monday might become part of the routine.  The early morning hours are enjoyable, I do confess.
  • It’s about 1:30 p.m. and I feel like my entire day is complete.  I’m sure I’ll get a short nap this afternoon.  Being up early makes it seem like two days in one (not that I plan to make it an every day habit).
  • Wisdom is an ongoing need.  No doubt about it!
  • I am trying to get into shape.  Going ok, just want to run a 5K in May for a decent time.
  • Why on earth are the schools off today, Friday, and then again next Wednesday?  What a weird schedule.

FAITH:

  • This is definitely  a season of life where I feel stretched. I know I’m growing, and I don’t know where it’s leading, but it’s exciting.
  • Our local community (called Kenmore) took a stand against violence on Saturday night.  Here’s an article I posted today to our church’s blog with some of my thoughts.  The article includes a link to a news piece a Cleveland news station did after reporting on the event. What an excellent event to be a part of!
  • How much is prayer a part of your life? If the answer is “not much”, how are you trying to live without it, especially if you’re a believer? You do not have because you do not ask.
  • The end times: more for your knowledge or for application to daily living?  There should be balance here.

SPORTS:

  • Not much to say on sports this week.  Kinda slow.
  • A friend and I both guessed 86 games won by the Cleveland Indians this year. Interesting.
  • I love the rumors about the Browns stealing Flacco from the Ravens.  I don’t think it would happen, but it would be awesome to think about!
  • It’s a little early to make a pick for baseball, but I’m close.  Give me a few more weeks and I’ll make my prediction for the World Series winner. I know this: the Yankees won’t be in my thinking!
