"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....only it's Friday!

Sorry, even though these weeks seem to be going so slow, when it comes to Thankful Thursday it goes fast! 

I have to say though, I am thankful for a godly husband that stands for what is right!  We have been married for just over eight years and it hasn't always been easy the things we have gone through...but one thing that has been easy is loving him, supporting him, coming behind him, being next to him, standing with him, and just knowing that we are together forever. 

I look back at the trials and pains that we have endured as a couple and see that it is much easier to stand when you know someone else will be standing with you.  One thing I hope that people know about us is that we will take a stand, according to God's Word, for what is matter the cost.  Did you know that there was someone who had a check written out for Princess' entire adoption and they were going to give it to us until my husband became a pastor of the little church here in town?  I am not bragging...just saying, it would have been much nicer to have not had to carry her adoption loan for going 4 years now, but it wouldn't have been right to step out of God's plan for our lives to make it 'easier' for us!  There have been other situations too, we will stand.

We have been placed in another one of those situations, with me expecting many people have stated how they dislike the idea of us adopting again.  It breaks my heart that just because we are now able to have children (maybe with lots of prayer!) that we should give up on the desire God has placed in our hearts!  Can you believe some have called us 'con artists' because we are continuing with adoption while expecting.  After telling someone else about our pregnancy a response we receive, "good, now you don't have to go through with that stupid adoption stuff any more!"  SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?

Needless to say we were at a cross road, but my godly wonderful amazing husband and I have spent much time in prayer and have decided that again, we must continue because it is something God placed in our hearts....and we have no right to remove it.

So, thank you Lord, for the amazing husband I have!  Thank you for giving him such a tender heart for Your Will!  Thank you for allowing me to spend my life here on earth next to him!

And now a picture:

I have my computer set to scroll through my pictures for a screen saver and this one has come up several times in the last week.  It is from 2 years ago...half her life.  But It makes me laugh, she has always been in to detail!  Fancy flower shoes, her purse, her pretties, and her watching a bride walk down her outdoor isle.  She has been obsessed with weddings since that day!

I love being a Mama!  I love looking back at the blessed years we have had with our children already, and wonder to what the future holds with them and their future siblings!
