I’ve been reading the book of Proverbs and then writing these posts. This has had a profound effect on how I approach my day. I go about my business mindful of the scriptures.
As a result I feel a peace and love, that I have to admit, is somewhat new.
Without question, my life is changing for the better. The main thing I am noticing is the harmony I’m experiencing with all the different people I encounter.
I see it! I feel it! I love it!
Today allows me the opportunity to expand and grow. And this starts with reading the Word of God.
From the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things, but the unfaithful have a craving for violence. Proverbs 13:2
For many years I was unfaithful to the scriptures. I had a craving for violence. I’ve been in so many fights, there’s no way for me to account for them all. I’m so happy those days are over! Today I will speak kind words to everyone I encounter. Today I will enjoy peace and harmony.
Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. Proverbs 13:10
This blog, and the direction my life is heading, is a result of setting my pride aside and taking the advice of friends and family. (Thank you Linda. I love you.)
He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored. Proverbs 13:18
For a large portion of my life, I ignored discipline. Look where that got me. In prison with a 43 year sentence! Today I heed correction. I crave it! I desire it! I seek it!
Misfortune pursues the sinner, but prosperity is the reward of the righteous. Proverbs 13:21
I believe this 100%. I’ve lived it. I’ve experienced it. My life is a testimony to this truth.
