Thankful for His Guidance...

Exactly 24 years ago the days that were ordained for me began....and I am so thankful that our Soverign Lord has always been, and will always be, in complete control of each one of them!

LORD, You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You understand my thought from afar.
You scrutinize my path and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.

Even before there is a word on my tongue,
Behold, O LORD, You know it all.
You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it....

For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother's womb.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well...

And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!

Psalm 13:1-6;13,14,16,17

Happy Birthday, Stephanie! You picked a great verse from Psalm 139.

May our Sovereign Lord continue to reveal His gracious thoughts to you in the Bible. God bless.

Happy Birthday! My friend is having her baby today. I'm sorry, but we won't be calling him Stephanie in your honor. I hope you have a great day!

Thanks for the birthday wishes Angela and Penn! Angela, I have to say I'm quite dissapointed to hear that the baby won't be named after me in my honor...I'll try to get over it. ;)

Stephanie!! Happy Birthday!!! My b/day was Monday(15th). I just want to say thank you for your prayers and thank you for your encouragement. God created a wonderful person when He created you! I wish I had read this blog earlier in the day. You probably won't get this until the 19th. But I still want to wish you a very very happy birthday!!!!
