Oh my! Football goodness...

First we beat JSU! Next we are beaten soundly by Auburn. Then we beat Vandy! And today....oh my! A very good game against LSU and very close to a win! I'm soooo tired still and its been nearly 3 hours since the end of the game. Haven't seen such a good game in a very long time! Stats wise, we beat LSU but in the end, its only the score that matters. Up next, Ga Tech - GO DAWGS GO!!!

Max Lucado - Fearless (Thomas Nelson)

Max Lucado has done it again! I love his books and this is no exception! As the cover says, imagine your life without fear. This book is 180 pg plus a discussion guide with several lessons to help you better understand the book. To better help you understand different concepts, Lucado uses scripture to illustrate his point and he does so with several different translations to make it easier to understand. Every chapter starts with a Bible verse(s) that illustrate what the chapter is about. Each chapter is short and makes it easy to read a couple chapters here and there - the whole book is a quick read!

Why are you afraid, O ye of little faith? (Matthew 8:26) I enjoy this quote from the book - "It's not the absence of storms that sets us apart. It's whom we discover in the storm: an unstirred Christ".

Lucado has listed 8 worry stoppers: Pray first, Easy does it (slow down), Act on it, Compile a worry list (did they actually happen??), Evaluate your worry categories, Focus on today, Unleash a worry army, Let God be enough. These worry stoppers spell out what we should be instead of fearful - PEACEFUL! Jesus is the ultimate example of how to deal with fears. When he faced the cross, he was anxious. What did He do? He didn't run and hide...He prayed and asked if it were possible, remove this cup from me but not my will but thine. We should pray without ceasing!

Football is upon us!

The MSU BullDawgs won their season opener against Jackson State University 45-7. My opinion, however, is that this won't be the winning season that all hope for - I could be wrong but still.... I saw nothing in that game that sparked hope. A team like JSU is not in our league and yet we went into the locker room at half time 7-0. We should have gone to the locker room 45-0. Don't get me wrong, JSU rocked the house at half time with their band performance but they just aren't in the same football league as us. Well, we'll see what happens this week when we go to Auburn and take on the Tigers. GO DAWGS!!!
