I hope you have a blessed Holy Week celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus. He revealed God’s heart of love on the Cross and provided a way to be reconciled to Him.
The last few weeks we’ve discussed four qualities essential for achieving our God-given destinies. They are needed to traverse the pains and tribulations of the 21st century. Number five brings them all together.
In 2 Peter 1:6, Peter encourages us, “And to your perseverance, add godliness.”

For many decades I have used December to organize my life, plan and pray about the coming year, and set goals for God’s remaining “assignments” in my life.
Every year I create a list called “My Numbered Days” (Psalm 90:12) to fine-tune God’s priorities for the next twelve months. Then, I put those items in the front of my Prayer Diary and refer to it often.
This habit comes from a commitment to discipleship–living as a disciplined follower of Jesus for the days he gives me on earth.

I hadn’t thought of Alice Cooper for many years when a friend of mine splashed a headline that made my heart sing.
Here is a thanksgiving story about how Alice Cooper came home to Jesus.
