The Bible is the most important book, so I'll talk about that today. This morning I read these verses:
       "By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
        and by the breath of his mouth all their host.
        He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;
        He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
        Let all the earth fear the Lord;
        Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him." Psalm 33:6-8

I just love this whole Psalm; it's about the Lord's mighty power and how great He is. So often I forget this, or maybe I don't even forget, I just choose not to think about it. This is so sad, because I realize that when I am thinking about the Lord and His awesomeness, by troubles become less and I am so much more joyful and positive. So why don't we do this more often? Sometimes for me its easier to think about the things I can see and touch than the spiritual realm which sometimes seems so far away. But life is like the snowflakes falling outside my window, one day it's here and the next it's gone. So I want to live every day dwelling on the King, no matter how much it makes my head hurt or how much I'd rather be doing something else. Thank you Lord for being good and lasting longer than snowflakes! :)

  1. Deuteronomy 8:2-3 and following "Remember how the Lord your God lead you all the way in the desert all these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna which neither you nor your forefathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord." Our every sense of purpose and the reason we have hope and life can be found in these two scriptures. God puts us in this life with temptation and trials in order that we may depend upon him and if we remain faithful to him, his reward is like nothing we have ever seen, heard or could imagine.(manna) He brings us out to bring us into something greater than the earth could ever offer. His binding love. Deuteronomy 6:23. If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.
