Today's Photograph . . . . Prized Mountain Lion (Jimmy S)
Bible Study Verse
II Chronicles 16:9 
"For the eyes  of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish  thing, and from now on you will be at war. " (NIV)
"God is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to him. You were foolish to go for human help when you could have had God's help. Now you're in trouble-one round of war after another," (Message) 
Have you ever heard that the Living God was so actively pursuing us, so dedicated and committed to searching us out? 
It reminds me of a pack of lion hounds on a fresh cougar scent. The chase becomes so enthusiastic, there's no way you can stop the dogs until the mountain lion is treed. 
Lost dogs have been known to be found in neighboring states, because nothing would deter their focus, their drive, or their goal.
(Wes W)

Action Point
My God is so anxious to find one whose heart will be yielded and surrendered to Him. He desires to fully support and strengthen, bless and uphold that person with personalized attention and relationship.
Who wouldn't want to be found by God?
Who wouldn't be a little curious about His blessing?
Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
Following a pack of dogs could take two hours or two days. Go prepared and be in shape.
