Helpful Words from Mr. Spurgeon

December 2
'I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved' (Psalm 16:8)

"This is the way to live. With God always before us, we shall have the noblest companionship, the holiest example, the sweetest consolation, and the mightiest influence. This must be a resolute act of the mind, 'I have set,' and it must be maintained as a set and settled thing. Always to have an eye to the Lord's eye, and an ear for the Lord's voice - this is the right state for the godly man. His God is near him, filling the horizon of his vision, leading the way of his life, and furnishing the theme of his meditation. What vanities we should avoid, what sins we should overcome, what virtues we should exhibit, what joys we should experience if we did indeed set the Lord always before us! Why not?
This is the way to be safe. The Lord being ever in our minds, we come to feel safety and certainty because of his being so near. He is at our right hand to guide and aid us; and hence we are not moved by fear, nor force, nor fraud, nor fickleness. When God stands at a man's right hand, that man is himself sure to stand. Come on, then, ye foemen of the truth! Rush against me like a furious tempest, if ye will. God upholds me. God abides with me. Whom shall I fear?"
-C.H. Spurgeon

Another cool thing is that the conference registration opens early this time 'round... like as early as tomorrow! Yeppers, Next '10 registration opens December 1st. Check out the website and especially the blog. One of the primary bloggers this year is none other than my sister, Jess. :)

Turtle Bites

I made these for Care Group last week. They're so yummy. We normally make them during Christmas time.

Turtle Bites
Caramel Squares
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Cover a baking sheet with wax paper. Grease the wax paper with cooking spray. Melt your caramel, adding the slightest amount of water. Individually dip the pecans into the caramel, so that most of the nut is covered. Place each dipped pecan onto your greased wax paper. Once the pan is full, place it in the freezer for about 8 minutes or so, allowing the caramel to mostly harden. Then melt your chocolate. Dip the caramel pecans into the chocolate, completely covering the nut. Place the pecans back onto the wax paper. Again, once the pan is full, place it in the freezer for about 8 minutes or so. The chocolate should be hardened. Keep in frig (in Ziploc bag) until serving. This allows the candy to stay mostly hard, but you wont' chip a tooth on it. :)

Sweet Assurance

I was reading these verses this morning and was freshly encouraged. What a kind and loving God I serve! My hope and my peace are in Him and Him alone!

"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:4-7

"God's impossible commands are always wrapped up in the promises of the Gospel." -Jim Britt
