"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.

Mama Moments...

I know I haven't had one of these for a while, but it seems like every day could be a 'Mama Moment' if I wanted it to be!  But my latest thing that I am IN LOVE with is how my two-three year old children say HOSPITAL!  It is something more like hostibal, and I KNOW that the day they learn to say it correctly there will be tears running down my face!

There is another occurance that is happening regularly that makes me a PROUD Mama!  We have been members at a gym for quite some time now and the kids have always wanted to play on the equiptment while there, the other night we decided that if we took the time to show them how to use a few of the differnt pieces that they might actually be able to enjoy their time there.  Well, my little princess was walking along side her Mama tonight on a treadmill!  She kept telling me to make it faster, but the fastest we allowed her to go was 1.5 mph!  But she did that for over 10 minutes before she was bored and wanted to move on to lifting!  I do not know what all the machines are called, but her favorite is the one that you sit on and push the weights straight out in front of you...if it is left at 25 lbs she can do it!  She also enjoys the stationary bikes.  We are not wanting to brain wash our children about becoming work out freaks, but I guess that it couldn't hurt to have them enjoy it!  BooBear enjoys it some too, but his attention span is not as long as his sisters!  He goes between 'working out' and rolling his JohnDeere tractors all over the place!  What a fun activity to do as a family!

What are your Mama Moments...or if your children are grown what do you remember as a special Mama Moment?  Would love to hear from you!
