"How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from you commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:9-11

Why do we try to conform God to our will? Live in His word and know true joy.

"Make me to know your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old."
Psalm 25:4-6

God reveals the truth of our time and all time to us through Scripture.

"The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the tstimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple: the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb."
Psalm 19:7-10

All the laws in all the books in all the libraries of the world are but a footnote to the law of God.

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways ackowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."
Proverbs 3:5-6

To know and understand God comes not through our intellect, but through the wisdom given to us by the grace of God.

"My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart."
Proverbs 3:1-3

Don't measure success by society's standards. Use Christ as your measuring stick.

"The the LORD answered Job our of the whirlwind and said: 'Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding, Who determined its measurements - surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? Or who laid its cornerstond...?'"
Job 38:1, 4-6

When we measure God by our limited standards, we attempt to measure the elephant by weighing one strand of its hair.

"Philip said to him, 'Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.' Jesus said to him, 'Have I been with you so lon, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, Show us the Father?'"
John 14:8-9

Christ is God made flesh. If you want to know God, you must draw closer to Jesus.

Mac n Cheese Improved!

I have to share this with you all! About every 2 weeks Ada Grace and I have Mac n Cheese with Hot Dogs and Ethan has just Hot Dogs n Veggies for lunch. There is almost always some leftovers and so I went to and typed in something to the effect of "recipes for leftover mac n cheese" I found this that I just HAVE to share!

1-2 C tortilla chips broken into small pieces
1 lb Hamburger
1 (1 1/2 oz) Pkg taco seasoning mix
1 (10 oz) can tomatoes & green chilies, or 1/2 C salsa (I used salsa)
1 C shredded cheese
1/4 C olive, diced (save some out for topping)
1/2 C sour cream &/or salsa &/or tomato &/or lettuce

1. Break up the tortilla chips until you have between 1-2 cups depending on how much crunch you want in your meal.

2. Cook the hamburger and drain the fat; make the taco meat according to the package directions.

3. In a bowl, mix the leftover mac n cheese, taco meat, tomatoes or salsa, and the olives (make sure to keep some out for topping)

4. Spray 9x13 dish with cooking spray and layer the broken chips on the bottom

5. Top with the mac mixture

6. Top with shredded cheese n olives (I also saved a little of the taco seasoning out to put on top for decoration)

7. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until cheese is browned and bubbly

8. Top with sour cream, salsa, tomatoes, or lettuce as desired after meal is cooked

It is a sure winner...I tried it out on the church people last night and the entire 9x13 was cleaned out! Of course poor Ethan cannot eat it, but it is a winner!
