And we all, with unveiled face,
beholding the glory of the Lord
,are being transformed into the same
image from one degree of glory to another.
For this comes from the Lord
who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; 8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. 13 Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, And I shall be innocent of great transgression.
This is the last chapter of the book and I am glad to say I have learned a lot. This book put in me a hope and desire to be a woman of God, that trust, walks in Truth, that surrenders to Him, that prays, and live love and know Him.
Abba, I can't believe that I am Your child. My sin separated me from You but now I am Yours because of Christ sacrifice. Thank You for saving someone like me who is unworthy of Your love. I live in a world that lives for themselves. My prayer is that I would live for You, that You would be the center of my life. When people choose to follow that ways of this world, I want to choose You. My desire is to know You, to be pure, and guard my heart. I am content at where I am as a single woman. I trust in You, no matter your will for me to be married or not. I want to serve You without distraction. I can't see the future or do I understand all things, but I trust You. Help to live everyday as if it is my last, to honor and glorify You in this …
I remember when I was in high school, I was challenged to get up early in the morning to pray. I decided that around 5:30am, I would get up and pray to God. I had my prayer journal of requests from other people and I would start praying for them. Before I knew, I saw prayers being answered and I loved spending time with God. There was a delight that grew in me to spend time with God in prayer and reading the bible. I loved that I could communicate with a God I was once separated from because of my sin. This past week in a small group, everyone was asked "what do you think you will be remember by once your gone?" I thought once I am gone, I want to be remember as a "praying woman of God." I love to pray for others, there is nothing like being before the Father and praying. I do pray that if I ever have a family, they will see my heart for prayer and not only them but others who know me. I would encourage everyone to spend more time with God in prayer. Getting to kno…
When fear takes over, it can control our lives. I know for me when fear takes over I feel my heart beating faster, can't sleep and my body starts shaking. As I said before in my other post, I express my fears of the future and the unknown. If we decide to let fear control our lives, we start not believing and trusting in God and His promises. We quickly forget about the God we serve and who He is.
Isaiah 26:4 (New King James Version) 4 Trust in the LORD forever, For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.

When I think of Hannah's story, I am encouraged to trust God. I absolutely love Hannah for trusting God when she was constantly "teased" by her rival Peninnah. Trust was a struggling issues for me because of past hurts and disappointments.
Sometimes in life, we are put into situations that we do not understand and we can get upset and become angry. Instead of trusting to God for help, we might choose to handle the situation ourselves, thus becoming more frustrated and angry.
Hannah was a woman that went to God with her worries, she cried out to God about what was on her heart. And when God answered her prayers for a child she praised Him and kept her vow of giving back her child to the Lord. I pray that we all will trust in the Lord no matter what the situation, our God knows what He is doing, He is Faithful and our Provider.
