I want to hear from you!

So I know there are a handful of loyal readers to my blog.  If you would share with me what you are studying and learning in the scriptures right now! 

I guess I will go first since this is my blog…

I am learning just how important prayer really is.  I have always prayed and talked to God but not the way I am now.  I have recently started looking at how great God really is.  This has caused me to spend more time rejoicing and praising God for who He is and what He has done.  This has also caused me to seek repentance.  So many sins I have overlooked because I felt they weren’t a big deal.  I mean small things like my daily attitude.  I realize now it isn’t such a small thing because it is still a sin.  Everyday that I was being hateful or moody I was trying to justify my reason for it.  I thought I deserved to act that way because of an affliction that I had.  But the truth is, is that I don’t have a right!  Those little sins still nailed Jesus to the cross just as did my bigger sins.  So my gap I created by not going to God in repentance is getting smaller.  I seek repentance on all the little things now.  And since I am humbling myself I see God as the great God he is.  So I sing His praises all through the day.  And then I remain happier and I am not so angry or moody!  Do you see the chain of events that is happening here!?!

“See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and his arm rules for him. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.  He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.  Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?  Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?  Who has understood the mind of the LORD, or instructed him as his counselor?  Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding?  Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.  Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires, nor its animals enough for burnt offerings.  Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing.  To whom, then, will you compare God?  What image will you compare him to?”  Isaiah 40: 10-18

Please take the time to share what you are learning!
