Six Lessons

So I was tagged by Stephanie owner of the lovely and wisdom-filled blog Thirsty Soul, yay! I love these thingies so feel free to tag me any time, this time I'm asked to list 6 things I have learned this year:
1. One important lesson I learned this year is found in the lines of a certain song and it goes like this: "In my uncertainty your word is all I need, to know you're with me every day."
2. I've learned the importance of being obedient to my parents at all times, even more so if I want to be a faithful witness to them of the work of the Lord Jesus Christ in my life.
3. I learned that to be satisfied in Christ alone and again Here.
4. To be thankful of the blessings the Lord has showered me with, meditate on this: His mercies are new everyday. (Lam 3:22-23)
5. To put to death by the Holy Spirit the sin of murmuring against others, Philippians 2:14-16 in the ESV says: "Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain."
6. I also learned or at least have been learning since the day He saved me that: "for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

Thanks for participating, Rita. :)

"In my uncertainty your word is all I need, to know you're with me every day."

Wow, I love that line! Uncertainty has been the story of my life over the past few years especially and it is so true - His word is all I need.

"Uncertainty has been the story of my life over the past few years especially" really? my friend I quote you the same phrase I quoted a doctor I met this year who was also dealing with uncertainty: "It's the Bible, It's the Bible, It's the Bible"
it is our spiritual food, everything we need is in it.

I thank Him for this all the time! It is so cool to see what you are learning.
