    Hello, I found this board nearly a year ago. At that time I read through some posts and made 3 posts. I had since left the board and have thought about it here and there. Today I have returned and have enjoyed reading through some of the posts. I have since bookmarked the site so that I don't lose coming here again.

    In the last couple of years our relationship with God has grown tremendously in my household. We found a church that we truly love about 2.5 years ago. We rarely ever miss and when we do it's not because we just don't want to go. It is now because of work or being out of town. Find a good church home is an amazing experience. The Lord has done work in our home. The more we pray and the more we want to and strive to be closer to Him the closer he lets us and the more he blesses us.

    I have personally struggle to be a daily Bible reader. I love reading things in the Bible but find it difficult to make myself sit and read daily. I have been told that if I will begin reading it intentionally I will want to read more and more. Another way God works in life. I really like places like here and other places that talk religion when I see scriptures posted and I can then go from there and read more. I want to use this board as a tool for me to help with my Bible reading and general knowledge of the Bible in general.

    I hope I have posted something like this in the correct place and I look forward to interacting and asking questions as we go.

    With that, I want to leave with a small prayer that I try and pray daily:

    Lord, thank you for yesterday and giving me today. Please help me be a better person today than I was yesterday. I want to strive to do things more like you. In Jesus name, Amen.

    Welcome to the BB,

    3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

    4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

    5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

    6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

    7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

    I hope you brought your rule book ....

    .... and are ready to throw the flag and blow the whistle, as you will witness many cheap shots, illegal hits, and out of bounds plays.

    WELCOME and enjoy!

    Outstanding. Using this board as a tool 'to stir up your pure mind' and 'to search and see if these things be so' is the absolute best reason I can think of to participate here. "Iron sharpens iron" [Prov 27:17].

    Welcome aboard.
