  • Starting the Day with the Lord
  • May you discover today and every day just how much God loves you and is ready to assist you as you seek His help in knowing, trusting, and walking with Him, and recognizing and receiving His blessings!

    I invite you to explore and discover the many study tools, sites of education and inspiration, and songs of worship and praise made available through the links from this page to internet places of value. If, after doing this for a time you find you are moved to make a new or renewed commitment to more actively seek a deeper knowledge of and relationship with God, then God is hearing and answering my prayers that more than just I be brought closer to Him through this website endeavor.

    A desire for a hub of resources to facilitate my daily pursuit of increased closeness to and knowledge of the Lord, His instructions, and the depth and the breadth of God's love is one of the primary reasons behind designing and posting this page. It is my hope that as you and I proceed with this activity we will discover growing consistency and sensitive responsiveness to His promptings in our throughout-the-day walks and talks with the Lord. Links from other pages on this website are consolidated here to help make arising with the Lord and spending time in His Word as simple, enjoyable, and regular an experience as possible.

    Although these resources are no substitute for annointed prayer, worship and praise, preaching and teaching of the Word, and fellowship with God's people, I do find using them is
    1) improving consistency in my study about the Lord,
    2) enhancing my learning of Him; and
    3) increasing my awareness of and reverence for Him.

    I share my process here with the expectancy that I and each person who joins me in the quest of knowing and walking daily with the Lord will be established in His Wisdom and the power of His Living Word, infilled with His Joy, Love, and Peace, and rewarded with blessings beyond those we are able to imagine.

    To facilitate easy return to the "Daily Bread" study hub below you will see links to that section as you proceed through this page.
    (To navigate pages within that site use the right and left [forward and back respectively] arrows at the top of the page. Then to return to this site, click the red "x" in the upper corner of the page [left or right corner depending on your browser].)

    My prayer is that as you explore the wonderful array of study tools available you will be Divinely protected, inspired, directed, healed and equipped for your daily challenges, decisions and opportunities, and that in the process you will find yourself motivated by and delighting in what you learn and discover.
