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
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!

Thankful Thursday

>> Thursday, July 1, 2010

It's time to be thankful!! Not just because its Thursday, but everyday I am thankful to my Savior! Lately, I've been meditating on God's divine Providence in my life and learning to trust Him with every detail of each day.

With baby Noah on the way... (Yep, that's right, Noah seems to be the name we have chosen for this little one), I am thankful, first of all, that he seems to be a healthy little baby. I've had 3 different ultrasounds due to different concerns, and with each one, he seems to be quite healthy and growing normally. We praise God for that.

And since I have only 3 weeks and 5 days left before I am induced,(Not that I'm counting, or anything!), I am thankful!! I am having more aches and pains now more than ever. So, when it is over, I will be really thankful! Whew!

I am also thankful for the change in my dear hubby's job. He has been waiting and praying for some kind of change for about 10 years now. Be it a new job in a new location, or whatever, and to his dismay and my anxious prayers, nothing seemed to be happening. But thanks be to God, He opened the doors for a change within the company that offers less hours and more pay. And what timing!!!! With a new baby, we also get another blessing in this way!!!

Another thing to be thankful about is our homeschool. Yes, I am greatly thankful for the privilege of being a mom and one who can educate her kids for the glory of God! I am one of the biggest students in our homeschool due to the fact that I am learning to let go of my way and letting God teach me how to trust Him!!

I praise God for His loving care of me and my family. For His saving grace and for His Word. There are so many things to be thankful for, but this post would not be able to hold them all.

Are you thankful today?? Link up here to share your thoughts.
