  • January Scripture Memorization
    Psalm 8:1-9 (ESV)
    1 O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set
    your glory above the heavens.
    2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength
    because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
    3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and
    the stars, which you have set in place,
    4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you
    care for him?
    5 Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and
    crowned him with glory and honor.
    6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have
    put all things under his feet,
    7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,
    8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes
    along the paths of the seas.
    9 O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

    Mornings can be tough. Sometimes, a hearty breakfast and strong cup of coffee just aren't enough. Offering more than a rush of caffeine, best-selling author Paul David Tripp wants to energize you with the most potent encouragement imaginable: the gospel.
    Forget "behavior modification" or feel-good aphorisms. Tripp knows that what we really need is an encounter with the living God. Then we'll be prepared to trust in God's goodness, rely on his grace, and live for his glory each and every day.
