"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.

A New Funny...

I often schedule posts up to 2 weeks out but have to 'add on' to today's post with something that happened at prayer time two nights ago!

Before we pray as a family we talk about what we are going to pray for to help the kids understand better. We ask them who we should pray for and why...but our list lately has been pretty much the same:

*Mr. S to be healed of his cancer
*M.M. to to well on her interview/find a job
*Help us find a house or land in our town that would work better for daycare
*That our children would realize their need for Jesus in their life at an early age
*Patience for us while we have the 2 troubled foster boys in our home
*For Grandma & Grandpa
*For Mark & Teresa
*For one more Pumpkin in the Patch
and a few more ~personal~ ones.

Well the way we have been having the kids pray at night is that Daddy says one to three words at a time and Princess & Boo repeat what he said. Two nights ago our kids were extra tired from the events of the day and Handsome got to the part where we pray for our kids and he said "And for Princess" Boo repeated, but at the very same time Princess unfolded her hands and opened her eyes to say, "what do you need, Daddy?" in the sweetest little voice ever. Handsome told her we were praying and she needed to focus on our prayers to Jesus so he tried again, "And for Princess" to which she said "what do you need Daddy?" We tried one more time "And for Princess" and this time she with her tender little heart thought she was doing something wrong so she started to cry a little...we just paused the prayer and explained that we were praying for her, not talking to her, and then continued on....oh the precious sweet tender heart!
