Fear or Love

Psalm 111:10
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.

Hello guys and gals.
I have been good at getting on here, tracking food, tracking exercise, and writing my blog. I had a good day yesterday. I got some good exercise in 33 minutes on an elliptical machine, and 30-45 minutes playing racquetball. I actually played three doubles games, and won two. It was really fun and I am glad I am able to play again. I am hoping that our financial situation does not change to much so that I can keep the YMCA membership going.

I love this website and the ones associated with it. I have been putting the recipes of the food I make up on sparkrecipes.com. All of them have Zach G's in front of the recipe, so that people who know me can find them. I am adding recipes almost everyday. If any of you try any of my recipes please post a comment and rate it.

Have you heard the phrase "He is a God fearing man."? I have heard it from time to time and never understood exactly what they meant. I knew it had something to do with following God's word but that was it. I have, however learned that the statement means that we fear God and followed His commandments and do His will. I think it is more than just fear that causes us to follow God's commandments, but it is our love for Him. He loved us so much that He sent His son to die for our sins. What can make me not love Him?

Lord thank you again for Your love for us and for remembering us. Lord help me to continue to strive to be the child of God You want me to be. Thank You for all Your help with this new journey I am on. Lord I please give those that read my blog the strength to make the changes in their life that will give You glory. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

    I think being a God fearing man means that you know God's whole character. Yes, He is a God of love, but He is also just. He will bring judgment on those who refuse to obey His commands, not to condemn, but so that they will turn from the path of their choosing, and choose once again to follow Him. God knows what is best for us, and will allow all manner of horrid things to happen to us if that is what it takes to get us to turn around and look to Him.

Grosses me out that in the books of the prophets, God warns that if His people do not return to Him, they will end up eating their own children. Guess what. They ate their babies rather than return to God. Heaven forbid I ever get that stubborn, or think that God will understand if I decide to do things my way instead of His way.
