“You are what you eat” the old saying goes. If that is true, I am a Big Mac, Dairy Queen Chocolate Malt, lemon pie man of Chick-fil-A Chicken sandwiches. I wish it were better but I would be lying. Eagles are finicky eaters. Some birds eat worms, berries, and insects. Other birds eat carcasses but the eagle does not rely on what he finds. He finds what he wants to eat.
I had just became a believer a few months before graduating high school. Upon graduating, my church were honoring the graduates. They had gifted us all a book of Bible promises filled with scriptures for my every need. I cherished that book. I wrote in it, underlined, folded pages, and eventually wore it out. It … Continue reading My Number 1 Tool for Studying the Bible (and It is Not What You Think!)
The Rowland’s love to travel. A few years ago, we got into the RV lifestyle which has allowed us to travel from the Florida Keys to New Orleans to Mount Rushmore. It began when it was just four us.

There are three parts of Joshua 1:8 that God has provided for meditating on His Word . . .
The enemy, Satan, loves to thwart what God has designed and established for His people. Perusing through a self-help section of a bookstore, you will find many books about mediating - "10 Ways to Meditate" or "Finding Your Place to Meditate."

Since he is the father of lies, he falsifies and imitates the things of God. I have found that God says a lot about meditating and specifically meditating on the Word of God.
