I think the devil uses my Type A, technical personality to trip me up on this one. I am really black and white about things and prefer to have clear, concise steps, rules and regulations. I have often struggled with the different between knowing God and knowing about God because it can feel like knowing Him is an abstract reaching for the wind.
“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” Proverbs 16:3
How many times have we heard this verse? But how many times have we really stopped to wonder what this verse means? I feel like every time I turn around I am in a predicament that ends up landing me in the valley of “what to do?”
Hey guys/gals! I hope you are enjoying Proverbs as much as I am! The Lord is really speaking to me and giving me opportunities to practice what I am learning. Keep praying for me and I am for you. The devil doesn’t want us to join forces against him. For years I felt like my “good” life was all I needed. But looking back, I missed out on many opportunities to really be a vessel for Him to use. Are you using your gifts for him? How can we do better? Jesus died for us… Can we live for him? Isn’t He worth it?
Jesus died for us… Can we live for him?

Yep, you read the title right… I am determined to get caught up! 🙂 But I promise this post won’t be super long. Let’s get right into it!
Happy Mother’s Day!!! I read a great quote today that said, “To all mothers: To those that have lost their mothers, to those who desperately long to be a mother, to those who selflessly love like a mother, to those who mother any and all beings, to the adoptives, surrogates, nurturers and creatives, to those that may not have birthed life but have birthed a life of their own, we honor you!” That. Is. Beautiful!
Let me add, to those that have lost a baby before it came to this earth and even though he or she is with Jesus, you are a mommy and you’re baby will always have a place in your heart! Happy Mother’s Day to you! I pray you are at peace and not sorrowful, knowing that you will see that sweet angel again some day!
As you may know, I’m behind a few days so this post will cover Proverbs 12. Here we see the author compare and contrast the righteous versus the wicked.
Well it happened… the last few days have been hectic and I couldn’t make time to write. I’m going to try and catch up today; we’ll see how it goes!
While reading through Proverbs 11, I highlighted the verses that spoke to me most:
I hope you had a blessed day! Today we are in Proverbs 10. I know this chapter (like many in Proverbs) has a lot of short bits of advice and they seem to be incoherent as to form a foundational idea. At least I feel this way. When I read a passage of scripture like this it seems like I’m being banged around like a pinball. Each verse seems to hop like a frog from one random topic to another and back again.
To save you the pages of commentary that it would be, should I try to give a remark on each verse, I am going to stick to my original plan and only talk about the verses that stick out and speak to me today.
