"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.

Mommy Moments

WARNING: Potty time story to follow....

So as I stated in a previous post, we are probably getting to a point where I will be sharing 'Mommy Moments' often as we entered into a world with 2 two year olds! Well this particular MM comes from Black Friday. My WONDERFUL mother and I got up shortly after 2 am to leave the house by 3 am so that we could be at KOHL'S by 4 when the doors opened! Our husbands and my children were still sounds asleep when we left them but we did have plans of meeting up with them for lunch somewhere. Well, we finished at Kohl's, made our 2nd coffee (capichino for me) stop and headed to Target to stand in line and be there when the doors opened at 6 for the $88.00 dual screen DVD player for the 6 1/2 hours trips back and forth across our state. I also had to get Handsome a camera to take with him to Uganda in a couple months and a few other things. Anyway, we hit Hobby Lobby and Toys R Us and then it was time to meet with the guys and kids at TGIFridays for lunch. Before our food came Princess proudly told me, "Mommy, wet diaper." This is her way of telling me 1 of 2 things. Either it is time to sit on the potty chair RIGHT NOW or it is too late and my diaper isn't the only thing wet....well this was one of the change the entire outfit times. Her and I headed to the ladies restroom to care for the problem. It had been a long day for me already and I thought that I would use the restroom as long as we were already there. As I flush my wonderful, in training (potty chair that is) daughter in her not so soft voice says, "YEAAAAAHHHHH, Mommy go potty in the potty chair YEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! Tinkle Tinkle....YEAAAAAHHHHH Mommy!" Now some might be slightly embarrassed by something like this...I took it as a moment to thank God for my daughter. We then went to wash our hands a a very nice lady who was also washing her hands looks over at us. You could tell she had gotten a kick out of this and she very kindly says, "we must be potty training." I said "YES" and we both chuckled.
What a blessing it is to be able to be her Mommy!
