This past weekend, we enjoyed the Lord Jesus at the college conference in Latham Springs. The conference was concerning the rise of the young people. We learned that it is necessary to have a morning time with the Lord.
"And rising very early in the morning, while it was still night, He went out and went away to a deserted place, and there He prayed . And Simon and those with him hunted for Him, and they found Him and said to Him, All are seeking You. And He said to them, Let us go elsewhere into the the nearby towns that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I came out. And He went preaching in their synagogues in the whole of Galilee and casting out the demons. Mark 1:35-39.
I enjoyed that the Lord rose "very" early while it was still night and also went to a deserted place to pray. Sometimes when I wake up its light outside. The Lord was able to wake up even before the sun to pray, to have a morning time. Then it says that Simon and those hunted for Him. The word "hunted" is the same as the word "pursue" The disciples pursued after the Lord early in the morning, and they found Him. Then the disciples went on to say that everyone was looking for Him, but the Lord went another direction, saying that they should go elsewhere. The ones that were "seeking" the Lord are the ones that did not get up early in the morning to hunt/pursue the Lord. We need to be those who are desperate in our pursuit of the Lord in a real way. A way that is early in the morning before the sun even gets up. Praise the Lord for his burden for us to have a morning time to seek out the Lord in prayer. May I seek a time in the morning to touch the Lord everyday, early in the morning

"....man may be enlightened to realize that, according to the good pleasure of God's heart's desire, man should be filled with God to be the expressionof God only, rather than the expression of man's perfection in his uprightness and integrity." - Job 4:8 Footnote 8:1b
I really do appreciate that care that the church in Austin, had for me and the students of Christian Students on Campus, to get us reading the Bible on reading schedule. This had really allowed me to seek the Lord first in all things, and not my own desires. It has made moving back to Flower Mound just a little bit easier. I am glad that I was able to go back to Ausstin and get my Bible, so that I can dive into Him!

Praise the Lord for the Word of God!!! I recently went back to Austin and as able to gather some things that I had not brought up the Flower Mound yet. One of the things I forgot was my Bible. This morning though I was able to wake up and actually get into the Word. I am behind on the reading schedule, but since there is nothing to do in Flower Mound, I should be able to catch up quickly. I was able to read Gen. 1-11 today! God gave us "His Bow" to remind us and Himself of the covenant He made to us. No matter what we do, or how bad we get..... God loves us! Throughout this whole book there is so much foreshadowing of what is to come in the rest of the Bible. I am not 100% clear on the 3 falls of man, so hopefully someone can help me out. Also the "curses" that were put on people I am not to clear on. The footnotes in this Bible are amazing. For many things can be cleared up by just reading the footnotes. Sometimes we just need companions and other members of the Body to help us understand. Praise the Lord the Bible! Thank you to all of the students at UT who are in Christian Students on Campus, who helped in my walk with Christ! Who would of ever thought that the Ark is a type of Christ...oh I can't wait to get in this more!
