PSALM 119: 159-160 (Message) Take note of how I love what You tell me; out of Your life of love, prolong my life. Your words all add up to the Sum total: TRUTH
SUM TOTAL means Whole – Entirety – Totality – GRAND TOTAL
I pray this blog of mine never comes off as a “pointing the finger” kind of writing. My prayer is whoever reads my BLOG will understand I am “stumbling” into the Grace I do not deserve. I want my writing to come across as my own journey of discovery and I pray earnestly that it does.
What will be the Grand Total of my life? My sum total will be: I TRIED

I tried to give God the glory while throwing my pride away – always failing – forever striving
I tried to remember I was predestined, according to His purpose and council while trusting in His Will.

I tried to remember this love of Christ surpasses any earthly knowledge.
I tried to take hold of the over-flowing fullness of God’s love; if only I would accept it.
I tried to remember God’s love is immeasurable more than I could ever imagine.
