"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.

New Years Eve Sunset

The sunset on New Years Eve awe struck me. It seemed almost funny, actually. It was so beautiful, God's way of closing 2008 was amazing! Which to me was kind of comical since our life was upside down! We were just 3 weeks away from moving and had a ton of work to do on the new house, still had packing & cleaning to do at the old house. We didn't get it as clean at the old house as we would have liked, but how were we to get EVERYTHING done in 40 days? I feel terrible that it was not spic n span when we closed the door for the last time, if God can take 2008 and close it this beautifully...why then, did we not have enough time to close the door on a beautifully clean house? I do hope that the people of First Baptist Church can forgive us for the fact that we left a few bread crumbs in the cupboards or a few nicks in the paint from moving. We did want to clean that all up for them, but as I said...we just didn't have enough days!

But as I look back at these pictures I am thankful...thankful to our Heavenly Father that He is in control. I was intending on starting a new meme yesterday...Thankful Thursday! This was going to be my post, just not enough hours in the day!

It was almost as if this was a reminder to us that the while 2008 was a bunch of Craziness, God is our calm in the storm. I look forward to what 2009 has in store for us.

**I have noticed that some of my pictures from another blog of mine are being taken and used, so from now on the pictures on the blog will have a stamp on them!
