"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.

I haven't filled anyone in for a while on what is going on in our lives. We are to be out of the parsonage by January 31st and because of some VERY good friends we are buying a mobile home from them through contract for deed. We are thankful to know that we will have a roof over our heads. It did need some work before we moved in, and if you know my husband he is very good at cleaning things up. We are currently painting every wall in the house, it is a 1994 and it had the early 90's wallpaper throughout. Not a terrible thing, but it needed updating. We are also putting new carpet in the kids' rooms and new vinyl in the kitchen, dinning room, back entry, and 2nd bathroom. Jason is working on updating all the light fixtures and we already have the plumbing worked out (thanks to Grandpa Denny!) Lots of work for the fact that we had 40 days from the time we received the official notice to be out of our current house, but the Lord is providing wonderful friends to help us out.

I do have before pictures, but will not be posting them until we have the after pictures as well. I have started talking to my daycare moms and so far the ones I have spoken to are moving with me...praise the Lord!

I know that it is a difficult time, but again with all the wonderful friends and family that have been encouraging in so many different ways it helps! Thanks for the calls, emails, Facebook messages, comments on the blog, help, advise, and everything else that you are doing to encourage us! It means the world to us!

Oh, and for those of you interested in our new address either email, call, or message on Facebook and I will get it to you. For security reason we are not going to post it on the blog or facebook for everyone to see.
