"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.

Nice Weather!

So we are having a VERY nice day today, considering the beginning of this week brought us 6+ inches of snow!  There was even still some snow falling yesterday....but today, well that is a different story!  We are creeping up on 70, the sun is shining, the very beautiful especially blue sky I love about this place is filled with happy puffy clouds, the birds are finding worms in the warm still wet ground so they are happy too!  Actually lots of critters are 'out and about' taking in this nice day...including this little guy:

I stepped out our back door to pull some of those lovely yellow flowers that are also making an apperance and here he was....just hanging out waiting to see what I was going to do.  Now please know that me being me, I was rather happy to see this guy!  Growing up on a farm I actually played with these guys, would have 'races' with the neighbor to see who could catch the most in a 5 gallon bucket and then we would go to our bridge and dump them all into the water and watch them scurry away!  I know demented....BUT, me being marriged to the Handsome that I am who will not kill a spider because he would rather believe they do not exsist than touch one...yea, I get snake, spider, and mouse (thankfully we only had those in one house have lived in) duty around here!  Anyway, I decided I wanted to make him proud, so I grabbed the first weapon like thing I could and went on the chase...apparently they are much more willing to be caught by a friendly person with a bucket than with a crazy person with a large board!  lol...I was defeated, and not terribly sorry about it!  So rather than make my husband proud by killing the little fella I texted him this picture and all it said was, "HELLO!"

I might remind him that because this dude was allowed to live, many a spider will not be...

Yuck! That thing looks deadly.
You guys sound like me and my husband, who prefers to catch critters in a jar and set them free in the woods while I squirm over the yuckiness. :D Just set that thing free in someone elses yard. :D
