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!!

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

Meditations // Jeremiah 1:6-8

"Then I said, 'Ah Lord God! Behold I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.' But the Lord said to me, 'Do not say "I am only a youth" for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you,' declares the Lord." --Jeremiah 1:6-8 In this passage God commands Jeremiah to speak to the people on His behalf and what does Jeremiah do? "I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth." This wasn't an easy task, nor would it be a fun task, or a task where the people would love him, it was a difficult, uncomfortable hard task. Jeremiah thought himself too young. Jeremiah didn't think that God could use him because of his age. But what does God say? That HE would be with Jeremiah, give him the words to say, and deliver him. God doesn't just command him to do something, he also gives us promises to go with that command.

Thoughts from a Sermon // Lazy Praying

Recently a friend shared a sermon with me; Listening to it this morning, I was extremely challenged. I've written out some thoughts from the sermon, but I encourage you to listen to it.

We are in a war. A very real war. A very dirty and bloody and hard war. A war not against flesh, not against other humans, a war against spiritual darkness, a war against evil, a war against the spiritual forces of Satan. Yet are we living that way? Are we girded in the armor of God? Are we fighting in this war? Are we preparing for this war? Are we pressing on even when it's hard? Or are we comfortable where we are? Are we content where we are? We've become so wrapped up in the things of the world. The world is trying to put us to sleep. It's trying to make us put down our guard.

God has given us everything that we need to fight in this war - the armor of God, the Spirit, His power. Jesus has already overcome Satan and the world and death. We are on the side that we know is going to wi…
