  1. Bob – COMMENTS on Q& A.


  1. JTQuestion ONE


“You brought it up in the blog we covered but how do we make sure we are NOT getting stuck on stupid when it comes to God’s Word?


  1. Bob


  • Take it in, meditate upon it, and be willing apply…

John 14:23–24 (ESV) — 23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.

James 1:23–25 (ESV) — 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

Luke 8:8 (ESV) — 8 And some fell into good soil and grew and yielded a hundredfold.” As he said these things, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Psalm 1:1–3 (ESV) — 1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; 2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.

Acts 17:11 (ESV) — 11 Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.




  • CONCLUSION: Go to God’s word with a ready mind, meditate upon what you receive, then act upon it …



  1. (JT) The next question is from a mental standpoint…

“What in your mind is a person to do when they get trapped in automatic negative thoughts (((( those pesky ANTS )))?”




Psalm 42:5 (ESV) — 5 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation



Psalm 103:1–5 (ESV) — 1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 5 who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.


  1. (JT) Turning to the physical aspect of life….


  • Seems like you’ve been talking about the importance of the intake of the right spiritual and mental food … what about the importance of food in the physical part of the race of life?


  1. (BOB) ----
  • You could talk about this one … I’m sure. Talk to us about one thing you’ve learned... on the subject.
    • JT on diet, supplement OR WHATEVER..
  • Here’s SOMETHING I have learned….
    • Everyone is different so you need to experiment with food and diets … that means you research and be willing to adjust
    • Most failures happen because people don’t follow things as they should for as long as they should – diets, supplements, systems, etc.
    • STICK IT OUT before you give it up.
