Monthly Book Review :: Spurgeon's Sermons on Prayer

One of my goals this year is to read 1 spiritual book each month. My first book I read was Spurgeon's Sermons on Prayer. I've posted some different quotes from the book, and now I'm going to do a short review on it. Each month I hope to post a review on the book that I read that month. 

Spurgeon's Sermons on Prayer
This book is a collection of sermons by Charles H. Spurgeon on Prayer. The first twelve sermons are from different verses scattered throughout the Bible. Then he has several sermons on prayers that were prayed by people in the Bible; Lastly he has sermons that cover the prayers of Christ. 

These sermons were very helpful and challenging. He made great points about prayer and our need to grow in it. He gave different passages from the Bible and examples of prayer from the Bible to teach us more about prayer. While going into depth about prayer, it was still quite easy to read and understand. I learned a lot about prayer through this book and I would recommend it to others. 

I have posted several quotes from his sermons, but here a few that really challenged me:
"They [Saints of old] reaped great harvests in the field of prayer, and found the mercy seat to be a mine of untold treasures."
"You must take the city by storm if you would have it. You will not ride to heaven on a featherbed, you must go on pilgrimage; there is no going to the land of glory while you are sound asleep—dreamy sluggards will have to wake up in hell!"
"Be in earnest! Cry aloud! Spare not!"

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

2016 National Bible Bee // Pictures

2016 National Bible Bee // Lesson #3

This will be the final lesson that I share from my journey in Bible Bee. While I've only shared three lessons, there were so many more that I learned.

So often I get caught up in the future - what will I be doing, where will I live, etc... In my thinking of the future, I miss the present. Life flies by so quickly, and if I spend time wishing for/dreaming about the future, I will lose the present. I'll "wake up" five years from now and regret the time that I threw away.

Every day there are so many little things that we can enjoy and give thanks for. Yet, I so easily lose sight of the present in dreaming about the future. While in Bible Bee, it was so easy to dream about Nationals that I lost study time and time with my family. Then Nationals would come, it'd be over, and I'd look back and think "why did I spend so much time dreaming about Nationals that I let myself lose study time?"

The present days are so precious. Be content with where you are. Do…
