"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.

Thankful Thursday

I have been a little behind on my posting the last two days, but today I want to share my thankfulness of just a handful of the ways in which I have seen God work miracles, love, give mercy, and give grace over the last few years.

* Bringing J & I together and looking at our 7th (cannot believe it) anniversary this summer!
* We have children, two wonderful, beautiful , children!
* Our son is still with us, do you realize that it was just over a year ago that we 'found' his allergies and now he is a healthy & ALMOST normal 2 year old boy!
* He continues to provide for our needs it isn't always it an over abundance...but if we always had enough we all might be a little less likely to rely on God now wouldn't we?!?
* Friends, for the first time in a VERY long time we feel like we are surrounded with wonderful people. Of course E&M have been around for a couple of years now but we also have been meeting a ton of new friends that are just wonderful and godly and we are thankful.
* Even though it may not be the answer we were looking for, being diagnosed with PCOS is an is nice to know why I am broken and that if we had all the money in the world there could be things that could be done about it!
* I am thankful we do not have an easy street. DON'T GET ME WRONG! I wouldn't mind not having all of the trials all of the time, but by the same token...the trials we have seen in our married life have molded us into new people. We still need that molding and will for the rest of our lives, but my husband says he loves who I am now better than the person he married 7 years ago....and I feel the same way about him!

I could go on and on, but I challenge you to do the same. I have a problem with looking at the negatives and right now is one of those times...Jason always says when it seems I have nothing to be thankful for, those are the times that I need to be thanking!
