“There is POWER in Reading Good Words”

A “Blue Bird” with a Message!

The other day I started reading – The Prayer of Jabez  Devotional Book. 

I first received this book as a gift with another book written by   Bruce Wilkinson in July  of 2006.

The Prayer of Jabez
9Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers.

His mother had named him Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” 

10And Jabez called out to the God of Israel,

 “If only You would bless me and enlarge my territory!

May Your hand be with me and keep me from harm, 

so that I will be free from pain.”

 And God granted the request of Jabez.


Good books are like good movies that you can read and  watch  more times than you can count. 

Like they say about movies…  the first time you watch a movie… you just do not see half of what you thought you saw,  and half of the movie did  not make sense and you need to see it again and again. 

That’s so, with life…  you really want to  know  that which it was…  that you enjoyed so well?

The same goes for books,  with me. 

Some books I have to have…  in near by places just so that I know when I need special uplifting and encouragement  and with that need to…   just to be  mentally refreshed …  I  will have the right   book… right there… always the  best  reading material just  as handy as it can be!

Today … as I was reading   “Day  18”   – Power with Purpose   –  that line… If you want to see the promise in action,  right then  and there… a  “blue bird”   hit the picture window with a dull thud  –   down – but for a moment  –  unconscious   –  regained momentum  – landing on the near by porch rail! 

She looked at me and  had a look…  as if asking me   “why can’t…  I come inside there with you?” 

I was asking “her”…   “are you alright?” 

When  “she”  the bird,  was confident of flying…  off  “she” went.

 Such an earth shaking  mood  to put me in…   as  I was reading   “If you want to see…” …  “is not  that an immediate answer  to something   or  what?”

Anyway…. I now have plenty of food for thought.

I just love getting so “inspire ”…  as I read. 

Try reading this book if you have  it,   “again”  and if not,  the library will have a copy,  just ready and waiting… for you!

But,  I like my own books as I have to write in them as I go along,  and  that’s  for the next generation to read and, just take time to  think about what I was thinking about …  at that point in time about the material.

Good books are the best of companions and always so close by  and  best of all  –  so  inspiring!          D.V.
