"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

Beings that it has been three weeks since I had a Thankful Thursday, I appologize!  It wasn't that there was nothing to be thankful for, because that wouldn't be the case! 

Though in light of the recent weather we have been having, my post today is going to be about nice temps/living in the Hills!

You see when we returned home from Christmas on the Eastern side of the state we found three feet of snow keeping us from our home {pictures to come sometime next week} wonderful husband shoveled a path while I took pictures and the kids waiting in the warm suburban...I also chatted with the neighbor a little bit.  After getting the path we went into the house to check everything over.  Praise the Lord!  The furnace was still running & no frozen pipes!  We unloaded the Christmas haul (and boy did we have a haul this year) and then went to pick up a friends snowblower so my husband didn't have to shovel the three feet of snow every where!  Blowing it still took three hours, but it would have been way longer if he had to shovel it!  Thanks to M.G. for the use of your snowblower!  But along with the snow came bitterly cold temps...actual temps here were only in the -20 to -30 (F) degree range, but the wind chills were in the -40s!  BRRRRRRR!  But the last two days, despite still have most of that snow on the ground, we managed to get up to +60 on Tuesday and +50 yesterday!  We are looking at +45-50 today as well!  What a blessing, along with those temps came the bright sunshine...things are a melting now!  There is something about working in your home and not getting to go outside for days that can get you a little down...especially if you do not have sunshine streaming through the windows!  Yesterday I opened every blind in the house (8) of them and it was almost as good as being right out in the sun! 

I am thankful for the little blessing God send our way, even when it is a sneeky 60 degree day in the middle of January or the sunshine that with all the white on the ground seems so much brighter!

What are you thankful for?
