"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.

Happy Birthday Dear Husband of Mine!!!

Since my dear husbands birthday is today it only makes sense to be thankful for him, right? I know, I know, he was the subject of my Thankful Thursday post not that long ago...but after almost 7 years of marriage there are more that one post worth of things to be thankful for my husband for.

But seriously, I have had other ladies tell me that if they ever heard me say a bad thing about my husband they were going to get me because they just couldn't see anything wrong with him. Most of the time this is true (he is still human!) So since it is his 33rd birthday, I am going to list 33 things I like &/or love about him...
1. his smile
2. he has a big heart
3. the way he looks after really enjoying a meal I cooked for him
4. the way he takes so much care in having older, but nice & clean looking vehicles...have you seen how clean his truck is?
5. the way he can juggle both kids when they pile on his lap
6. the number of years he has been stuck with me
7. how he has put up with my emotional roller coaster called PCOS
8. how good he is at planting roses...we really should have kept a tally of how many you have planted for me!
9. how he has relaxed about life in general since we had children
10. how handsome he looks while he is singing with the praise team at church
11. the way he appreciates my blog
12. that he 'kicks' me out of the house once a week for me time
13. he isn't afraid to cook or clean
14. that he was in love with the thought of adoption
15. how he reads the Bible story to the kids every night
16. he knows something about everything
17. how quickly he learns new things
18. that he loves my family as much as I do
19. how crazy he gets when driving a stroller!
20. his tender heart
21. how if he wants a treat that he knows I love he will let me 'break' my rules so I don't have to watch him eat it
22. how he almost ALWAYS gets out of stinky diapers changes! (that is something to be amazed about with all the diapers changed at our house!)
23. how he has taken on folding the laundry as his task
24. how not being able to have children naturally didn't even throw him off his game
25. how much he loves me
26. that he is okay with the fact that I am not okay with some of his family
27. his laugh...the real, this is something that gets all the way to my belly, laugh
28. that is not legalistic
29. how he needs me to help him buy clothes
30. his faith
31. that he is always up for an adventure
32. how hard he works
33. how he is able to find good in everything

Now they are in no particular order, some silly, some serious...but I love him, all 33 years of him!
