"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.

Good Bye Old Friend...

We did receive notice today in the mail, Jason is no longer the pastor of First Baptist Church. They let him go because they felt he had "become a liability to the general welfare of the church." We have until January 31st to be out of the parsonage. Thankfully, we have dear friends in this area that are helping us in all aspects of this transition...M & T, G have a home that is for sale that we are going to be able to move into. Praise the Lord for a roof over our heads!

Unfortunately the lose of a home and some income isn't the only thing we will be grieving. The home that is offered to us doesn't allow dogs. I had listed the dogs figuring that we were going to have to move on short notice and today I had to say good bye to my first baby, Meshach. We brought him home on April fools day of 2004...just 1 1/2 pounds, such a tiny little one he was. Our neighbors at the time thought he was a gopher! He has been an AWESOME loyal friend to us through good and bad and it breaks my heart that through this tough time we cannot be there for him. I am okay with the home he went to, he will be loved and spoiled, but it just hurts. Meshach has listen to me cry over so many things, particularly over the adoption process (before kids) and he was beside me trough each of our 4 miscarriages. I even would 'sneak' him into bed with me while recovering from them.

He will be missed!
