"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

So this last week I have been reminded over and over again what a lucky girl I am to have Handsome as my husband.  This guy is nothing short of amazing...and that isn't even enough of a word!

So I started this Ideal Protein Diet and 2 out of 3 weeks that I have been on it I have lost a good deal of weight (7-8 lbs) and the week in between I lost 2!  So, needless to say while I do have lots more body is doing lots of adjusting and I am pretty tired at the end of the day.  Not to mention the fact that making supper for the family that looks all yummy and then making supper for myself just isn't all it is cracked up to be!  I LOVE the IDP food, but I also still long for my glass of milk...anything with cheese on it...or cake! 

Anyway, so since I have been on my diet and slacking rather slightly in my duties as a wife and keeping the house my husband has been a gentleman!  He cooks, he cleans, he picks up, he does laundry...he literally keeps the house going!  I simply wake up, take care of the Pumpkins, and that is about it!  But we both know that this diet is much importante to my health and with the $$$ we are investing in it we want it to work, so he is being 100% supportive in any way he can!

I am thankful for the wonderful husband God has blessed me with, I really do not deserve him!  Love you Handsome!
