..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Consider Jesus. Know Jesus. Learn what kind of Person it is you say you trust and love and worship. Soak in the shadow of Jesus. Saturate your soul with the ways of Jesus. Watch Him. Listen to Him. Stand in awe of Him. Let Him overwhelm you with the way He is.

- John Piper

As a kid, my folks to us to Garden of the Gods. I felt like I had entered into an ancient and magical place. Thus I love the picture. I have only recently become familiar with John Piper. Any suggestions on a book I might read? Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sandi, Garden of the Gods is amazing! If you click on Colorado Photography from my blog's menu quite a few are taken there!

As far as John Piper, he's a good writer and has written prolifically but you might start with his most famous work: Desiring God, or then perhaps a book like: "The Hidden Smile of God: The Fruit of Affliction in the Lives of John Bunyan, William Cowper, and David Brainerd" (Crossway, 2008).

He also has a website where you can listen to his sermons. He is strongly in the reformed tradition if that matters to you!

God bless you! --Rose-Marie
