I just finished this:
I downloaded the audio chapters that Womersley covers and read the chapters summaries of the chapters that he gives in his abridged edition. It made for easy listening as I ran or biked for triathlon training.
I especially liked Chapter 50 - a detailed account of the rise of Islam. It was very interesting, and I learned some things I didn't know!

Colossians 1:9-14

For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in ever good work and increasing in the knowledge of God, strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the Kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

If I am afraid of people,
fear will trap me.
But if I trust in You, O Lord,
You will keep me safe. (Proverbs 29:25)

My help comes from You, O Lord,
Who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 124:8)

Since Your children have partaken of flesh and blood. You also, O Christ, shared in their humanity so that by Your death You might destroy him who holds the power of death - the devil - and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. (Hebrews 2:14-15)

Loved my prayer time this morning, and these are verses that I want to commit to memory now.:)

I go to Ginny and Lorraine's today but nothing until Michelle tonight for assessment and goals for next year. I love doing that, and she is so on top of things regarding that and even initiated it. I might like her to talk to the girls about it.…
