I thought that besides recording what my girls and I are crafting, that in the future it would be good to look back to see what I am learning in life. What is God teaching me. I don't journal much. I do take notes a lot though. I journal in that fashion of taking notes of what I read in the bible, what comes up in prayer time, what my pastor says, and/or what I need to work on, namely a sin that I need to address in myself.
11"My foot has held fast to His path;
I have kept His way and not turned aside.
12"I have not departed from the command of His lips;
I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
13"But He is unique and who can turn Him?
And what His soul desires, that He does.
14"For He performs what is appointed for me,
And many such decrees are with Him.
These verses are a great challenge in that I don't think I treasure God's Word anywhere close to "more than my necessary food". I have committed to reading more and have noticed that in doing so I want to read even more, that is huge for someone who is a non-reader for the most part. God's given me the desire to read. And so, that is cool.
On another note, I think it is interesting that though Job faltered in application with the sovereignity of God, he always comes back to it and affirms it. The sovereignity of God is huge, can any one who understands it, accept it everytime, is that your first response to bad news? I used to beleive in open theism. Maybe because that is what I was taught when I was younger and just accepted it. I heard this said not too long ago, "Get your theology right before disaster hits." I think I have done this in that I understand alot better, but I'd add to what that man said in that I need to get the Word in my heart in meditating on them day & night.
