Finding Contentment With the Girl In the Mirror {Proverbs 20}

Finding Contentment With the Girl In The Mirror

Proverbs 20:29 says: The glory of young men is their strength,     but the splendor of old men is their gray hair. The young may have strength…but gray hair is the splendor of the old.  Wisdom comes through many years of righteous living. Yet our culture despises gray hair. When I linger in front of the mirror for a moment…what do I see? A gray hair popping out, that BIG sun spot on my cheek, and those bags under my eyes.  Then there’s my beloved muffin top – possibly the thing that makes me most insecure. For me – all it […]

Do you struggle with losing your temper?  You are not alone. Perhaps your mother or father yelled a lot and now you find you do too. Or maybe you never even knew you had a temper until you got married or until you had children. Long ago, I turned to the book of Proverbs in my Bible, grabbed a highlighter, and marked every.single.verse. that referenced anger and the words that come out of my mouth. I marked verses like: “He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.” Proverbs 13:3  “A quick tempered man […]

Two Words I’ve Never Heard In Bible Study {Proverbs 10}

2 words I've never heard in Bible study a

Wednesday night I went to my friends house for summer Bible study.  We were discussing Lysa Terkeurst’s book, The Best Yes.  Our discussion centered around becoming wise women and women who make wise choices. Then the leader said two words- two words I’ve never heard in Bible Study before.  So I dug in my purse for my pen and jotted them down. She said, we want to become “mentally sharp.” I’ve really never thought about mental sharpness in a spiritual way or how wisdom plays into this acute awareness of the world, how it works, God’s way and righteousness. But […]

When You Are Longing For Answers {Proverbs 8}

When You Are Longing For Answers

I remember a time when I was going through some deep waters in life.  I was longing for answers. I had a long road trip ahead of me so I grabbed my cellphone with the Bible App and clicked on “The Book of Proverbs”. Then I turned the audio version on and it began to read out loud to me while I drove.  Miles and miles passed and chapters and chapters passed. At times, I would pause the reading and think and consider my own ways.  Or I would pray and say – “Yes Lord, help me to do this” or “Father, […]

When You Are Tempted To Have An Affair {Proverbs 5}

when you are tempted to have an affair

In Proverbs 5 we are given a warning…it’s for our sons…but may we never think we are above falling. Proverbs 5:3-8 says: 3 For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey,     and her speech is smoother than oil, 4 but in the end she is bitter as wormwood,     sharp as a two-edged sword. 5 Her feet go down to death;     her steps follow the path to Sheol; 6 she does not ponder the path of life;     her ways wander, and she does not know it. 7 And now, O sons, listen to me,     and do not depart from the words of my mouth. 8 Keep your way far […]
