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! Jerry Bridges in Respectable Sins

Trusting AND Praying

>> Friday, July 2, 2010

If We Are the Body...


Learning how the Lord wants us to fully and completely trust Him has been the main area of study for me lately. I've been so anxious about baby Noah coming into our lives and not being ready for it all, that trusting God has been in the forefront of my mind. I do trust God, that He will see me through and that everyday will take care of itself. But, the Lord still expects me to pray about my anxieties. I shouldn't just sit back and expect God to just take care of everything. But, as an act of obedience and surrender, praying shows Him that I am truly dependent on Him.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Thank you for the encouragement this morning. I actually came to my blogroll needing to hear something to soothe my weary soul. I have many health concerns and for some reason, it's a little harder for me to trust and not worry this time around. Thank you for soothing my soul!

Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. I will do my best to reply in a timely manner. Keep in mind that I am a busy, homeschool mom and wife, so please give me grace if I am not able to respond quickly.

Remember that this is a Christian blog, so I will not give any time to rude, inflammatory, or gossipy comments. We can agree to disagree, but only in a loving, Christlike manner.

Blessings to You,
Saint Shellie
