"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, ahem, I mean Friday

Well, it has been one of those weeks, the kind that is basically a roller coaster ride that you cannot get off of! {Part of life with PCOS}

Anyway, my thankful post this week is going to be directed to my mom & dad. I am so thankful for the way that they stand beside us even if they are not on the same page. The love us, and they love our adopted children (apparently this is difficult for some other family members) with an unconditional GRANDPARENT kind of love (aka ~ spoil them rotten.)

But before there was grandchildren there was just us as a couple and before that there was just me their daughter. While I was a rather confusing teenager, and had a VERY strong opinion of my own (and most of the time acted on my own thoughts and beliefs) they still were there every time I needed to talk, or needed help with something, or even if I needed gas money! Sometimes I wish you could remember more from your younger days because it would be fun to remember what they were like at parents from my toddler years...but I know one thing, they sacrificed often for my brother and I. And even though I grew up to be someone far different than they could ever have imagined, I grew up to be someone that has alot of them in me too!

We were blessed enough to be able to be with them over Father's Day weekend, and now my mother will be getting in her car and driving the 7 hour drive any minute! We get to have her from today until a week from Sunday...Daddy will be joining her next week sometime to celebrate the 4th as a family. It is always so wonderful to have them around! We are thankful!
