Great is the Lord

Recently David and I have been studying forces of the earth in Science. It has been really interesting to learn about different things such as earthquakes, volcanoes, etc... Reading about the forces of the earth has showed me more and more about how great the Lord is. A volcano erupting is really big to us but to him it is a tiny thing. Earthquakes can change things in minutes for us but that is nothing to God. Below are some verses that talk about how great God is.

1 Chronicles 16:25 ~ For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, he is to be held in awe above all gods.

Psalm 48:1 ~ Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God!

Psalm 96:4 ~ For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; he is to be feared above all gods.

Psalm 145:3 ~ Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.

In the Bible it tells us over and over how great the Lord is. We should praise Him because of His greatness. While studying the forces of the earth I have seen that I need to be praising him more then I am. Have you been praising him for his greatness? If not I encourage you to. One thing I have found helpful is to go outside and praise God for what He has done in my life, thanking Him for His goodness and for all the things He has made.

God is so great. :) I was reading through Job (the last chapters, that is) and it was boggling at how wonderful God is.

I remember studying in science about the forces of the earth. It was really interesting!
Thank you for reminding me to be thankful for His protection! Especially when I live in an area where earthquakes are common! One earthquake that was pretty big here was on Easter of 2010. It was a 7.2 magnitude at the epic center! We were 200 miles away from the epic center but we felt it quite a bit. It was pretty scary!

This was beautiful, Carissa . . . thank you so much for sharing what has been on your heart! The Lord is indeed so great and mighty and is worthy of all of our praise and adoration. We have so much to thank and praise Him for!!
Carissa said…
Bethany Grace - God is so great!! We serve an awesome God.

Lois - Wow, you have felt an earthquake! I hope I don't have to be in an earthquake. It sounds, from what I've read, that it would be pretty terrifing.

Jireh-Shaddai - Yes, God is so wonderful. Thanks for the comment.

Sarah - We do have a lot to praise Him for. That is one area that I have been working in - praising the Lord in everything - not just the good but also the bad.

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

2016 National Bible Bee // Lesson #1

During my time as a National Bible Bee Contestant, I learned so much - not just through studying the Word, but also through participating. In the following few blog posts, I am going to share a few lessons that I have learned.

The National Bible Bee is a great incentive to memorize and study God's Word. The prize money that is given away each year is a large amount, so it can be very easy to focus on studying in order to do well and hopefully win. During my time as a contestant, I've struggled with doing it for the right reasons. Unless one is careful the prize money can become a snare. The recognition can become a snare. The trip to Nationals can become a snare. Even studying and memorizing to have more knowledge can become a snare. 
A lesson that was key in my studying this year was that I must focus on Christ. He is the true prize. I was studying, yes, to participate in the National Bible Bee, but the main thing was to know Christ better. He is the treasure found in the Bib…
