Today I blog.
This is perhaps one of my most favorite verses in all the scriptures:
12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.
What a brilliant combination of humility and faith. The older I get the more I realize the less I am- the thing is, I don't feel bad about it. I know how small I am- but I have to know that to know how tall God can make me. I know that He can mold me into anything He sees fit: a powerful teacher… a decent writer… a good mother… a good artist. Whatever righteous desire I have, He can do it, if He chooses. The key is to always give the credit where credit is due.
This one hits me as well:
22 Yea, he that repenteth and exerciseth faith, and bringeth forth good works, and prayeth continually without ceasing—unto such it is given to know the mysteries of God
My favorite words of Ammon are "...for this is my life and my light, my joy and my salvation." Everything he cherished, everything he was dedicated to the Lord.
