"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.

A Piece of my Heart

(Please excuse the terrible looking lady in the was suppose to be a photo shoot of the twins...but Princess really wanted to take a picture...glad she did!  It is the only picture I have with myself and the twins!)

Back in my early HS years I was a big Faith.Hill fan, she is a great singer and I admire that she and hubby Tim.McGraw are still together because we all have seen how marriage lasts in the spotlight!

Anyway, she had a song that was about breaking up with someone but the courus when something like this:
"Take it, take another little piece of my heart now baby, break it, break another little piece of my heart now honey."  And so on.

Well that song comes to mind when I think of the twins, or other foster children that have been in our home.  I once counceled a young lady about being careful who she gave her heart away to because if you truly love someone, the piece of your heart you give them can never be taken back.  I believe this to be true, and sadly before my husband I had given two pieces of my heart away that I can never get back....true love doesn't go can dim with time, but it doesn't go away.

Well, that goes for other people in your life as well.  The foster children in our home each get our heart as well, I will admit that because of the age of the child, their willingness to be part of the family, the length of time they are with us, and so on the amount of our heart each one has captured can vary greatly.  But these twins melted us from the beginning!  They were so little, so sick, so needy and they took me away.  It hurts to have them out of our life.  They have another little piece of my heart that will be with them always!  We love and miss you Cupcake and EskiMo!
