I realized I forgot to add the "prayer" part to yesterday's Bible Study. I could go back and add it, but I've decided to move on. God understands our faithful, sincere efforts to honor Him. Don't you agree? :)
Paul's desire is so simple: he wants his righteousness to be based on faith in Christ alone. He understands this righteousness is from God and based on faith in His Son.
Study of verse 9 could be a rather complicated and long process. But, let's simply take it at face value today.
God, thank You for Your unbelievable, but true sacrifice of Your only Son, that we may enjoy mercy, grace, forgiveness and Your righteousness. Help me and all who read this fully accept these gifts. Help us to live freely under Your wings that we may fully achieve Your plan for our lives! Amen.
verse in context
Remember my precious longarm quilter, Stephanie? Well, I went into the store to buy fabric for a quilt - and she showed me this pattern by Fons and Porter - The Pretzel Twist!
To Do Tuesday
Last week's list:
1) Catch up with my Quilty 365. Nope - didn't even touch it.
2) Cut the fabric for Covered in Love. Nope - didn't even touch it.
3) Embroider the eyes and mouth of the Dolls of Hope dolls. Nope - but at least I've drawn them on.
4) Continue work on my Embroidery Around the House project! Done! See how pretty! Now, what color binding should I use? Naturally, I'm leaning toward the yellow fabric for binding! But, I don't know, the orange might be a great frame.......Help!
Also, what color hand quilting thread? Please share your thoughts in the comments section!
This week's To Do Tuesday is simple:
1) Finish sewing up the Pretzel Twist Unit 1 strips and maybe even get to the Unit 2 strips! I don't need it until September, but time can catch up to me!
2) Hopefully work on my tablecloth!
Everything else will be "on hold" until the Pretzel Twist flimsy is finished and turned into Steph!
