He will establish, ground, strengthen, and settle you. PTL!

There is simply nothing like the word of God. It spoke volumes to my heart this morning and I wanted just to post the passage here. So thankful that my God is sovereign. That He works it all out for my good and that He ALWAYS has my best interest at heart.

1 Peter 5:6-10

Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you,
    Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
    Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], 
seeking someone to seize upon and devour.
    Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset--rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world.
   And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you.
    To Him be the dominion (power, authority, rule) forever and ever. Amen

In other news, I caught these two little sweeties walking around holding hands last night. I know it's not the best picture but it was the best I could do to capture the moment. (: The "hand holding" went well for a short bit until Annabelle decided that she wanted to tell baby where to go and then it turned out not so sweet. Cute moment though.
