What Is Man's Chief End?

Man's chief end is to glorify God, [a] and to enjoy Him for ever. [b]
[a]. Ps. 86:9; Isa. 60:21; Rom. 11:36; I Cor. 6:20; 10:31; Rev. 4:11
[b]. Ps. 16:5-11; 144:15; Isa. 12:2; Luke 2:10; Phil. 4:4; Rev. 21:3-4
THE WESTMINSTER SHORTER CATECHISM
Every new believer has been set apart by God, separated unto God to be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ. In this sense, every believer is a saint- a person separated from his old sinful way of life and set apart by God to increasingly glorify God as his life is transformed!

What's Been Going On

>> Thursday, May 6, 2010

As you could see from my last post that I had a terrible week, last week. This week has been a "gettin' it together" week, I guess. But even still, not doing so well. Not enough school work... so we're still behind.

Not enough sleep... baby and brain keeping me up.

Dealing with worry... will post about that later.

A new member to the family... will share pictures soon... so having to get used to her being here and taking care of her.

Lots going on, at least in my brain, but not much to show for it.

Till next time,
Keep pursuing Him!

Oh, I love that Hiding Place song! That is one of my favorite verses too.

I am glad your son is o.k. When my son was about three we were outside. The ball went into the road and my son went after it. A car was coming and a bush was in the way, and I knew that the bush would block him from the driver's view.

Anyway, I went running and screaming behind him. I knew the car was going to hit him. I KNEW it and I couldn't get to him in time, I was a couple of feet away. It was awful.

Thank the Lord the driver stopped. She was all shaky. She told me that she couldn't see him, but she heard me screaming and saw me running with my arms outstretched and she figured I was chasing a child. She was right.

A few months ago our 21 year old called us and he'd been in a car accident (not his fault). But man, even though I was talking to him I started shaking and tearing up. Suddenly you are faced with what could have happened, as you said.

I'm praying that you are at peace these next few days, and don't worry about the school. You'll catch up. We're behind too. I've been homeschooling for 16 years and it seems like we're almost behind at one point or another.

Thanks Nan for your kind words. I'm glad to hear that your son did NOT get hit. Oh wow, those scary moments can be so heart wrenching!!

Well, about school, well the Lord is teaching me to TRUST!! It will all come together...somehow.
