from jonathan edwards’ resolutions,
resolved, very much to exercise myself in this, all my long life, viz.
with the greatest openness, of which i am capable of,
to declare my ways to God,
and lay open my soul to him:
all my sins, temptations, difficulties, sorrows,
fears, hopes, desires, and every thing,
and every circumstance;
according to dr. manton’s 27th sermon on ps 119.
july 26 + aug 10, 1723.
which reminds me of two special verses this week:
be gracious to us;
we long for you.
be our strength every morning,
our salvation in time of distress.’
‘may your mercy come quickly to meet us,
for we are in desperate need.’
and speaking of difficulties + sorrows…
did you know you can book an hour
of counseling with dr. turansky?
(as in mr. biblical parenting,
one of our favorite resources ever?)
you can + we did + it was
ridiculously helpful and encouraging.
the night before, c + i brainstormed
(and he articulated + typed out)
our top five areas of current concern/frustration
regarding our family dynamics and i spent an hour
asking questions and taking fast-paced notes
with scott’s wisdom.
wow, sign me up for that one again soon.
it’s super straightforward.
call them to schedule your hour;
you won’t regret it.
google dr. manton’s 27th sermon.
caroline spit it out after a timid bite,
citing, ‘tastes funny’ as
the reason for rejection.
trust me, it did.
