Book Meme & Book Info on the Names of God

Bethanne at Waiting for the Shout tagged me for a Book Meme. Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book of at least 123 pages.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence.
4. Post the next 3 sentences.
5. Tag at least 3-5 people.

The nearest book to me is "David, 90 Days with a Heart Like His" Beth Moore.

"First and foremost, David prayed. The psalm provides an unquestionable testament that David responded to his difficulty with prayer. Few of us would argue about prayer being the proper response in our crises, but we often don't perceive prayer as being the most practical response. We think, 'God can save me from my sins but not from my situation.' "
(I threw in the 4th sentence to finish out the paragraph)

Oh girls!! Can I just remind you that He is ABLE and ADEQUATE!!!! Oh YES He is.

I'm tagging......YOU! If you haven't participated, then you are it!

Several of you asked me about the "names" book I referenced in my "A" words post earlier this week. Book really isn't the proper way to define it! I guess the best way to describe it is booklet. It's entitled "He Is The I Am" by Sylvia Gunter. The idea is that you will use this list to jump start your own journal documenting what God tells you about Himself. Very cool little resource. If I could, I would give one to each of you! You can find out more about it here.

Somewhere in this house I have a book called "Praying the Names of God" and I love it. This booklet continued to challenge and stir my heart and took that concept to a deeper more personal level. Like I said, I'm still in the A list.

I sure hope this makes sense. I'm still trying to get over what I've started calling the "mini-flu" from last week. Chad just gave me some over the counter nighttime stuff so hopefully, I'll be in the land of sleep very soon!

Steph,
That's the same material I have! I came across her website when you sent me one of her e-devotionals. That was about the time I was hunting for some material on the names of God. I had sent an email to them wanting to know if I could get just one copy of the booklet (didn't have the $15 for a whole pack) and she sent me a package full of her resources!
Hope you feel better real soon. My husband is struggling with the cruddies too!
