I pray everyone has a WONDERFUL Easter weekend, celebrating our risen Savior. God Bless!
Praise His name for HE IS RISEN!HE IS RISEN INDEED.
Proverbs 20:19 - A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man who talks too much.
Proverbs 16:28 - A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends.
Lord, help us to discern the intentions of those we encounter in conversation. Keep our speech free from what offends you and convict us when our speech offends others inappropriately. As Your word says, "As much as depends on you, be at peace with all people." We realize we cannot control the acts and intentions of others and that there are some who seek mischief. Help us stand strong on Your teachings and guide our words and deeds so as to glorify You; impart wisdom to us on our words and deeds in response to those around us so that we may speak the truth in love and know when to walk away from some interactions. Your word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path, Father, so keep us on Your path and we will give You all the glory, in Jesus' name, Amen
"When Thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, Thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity."
Everyone needs to be reminded he or she is not better than anyone else every now and then. Conceit is a killing vice in the Christian life. God created us all as equals. His image rests equally with every human being. Sometimes God needs to bring us back to earth when we get too puffed up. Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, while those who humble themselves will be exalted.
O Lord, do not let me think too much of myself. When I turn my attention inward, I lose sight of who You want me to be. Let me be honest and open with myself, and help me to find new ways to grow for the glory of Your name. Keep me humble and ever steadfast in my walk with You, keeping my eye on heaven and not on this world. Amen.
Hey guys, please pray that the University of Arkansas will find a good replacement for Football coach Bobby Petrino. Also, if you can agree with me in prayer that God can turn something good out of all of this mess. I am praying for his wife and kids and of course for Coach P. If he never coaches again if he can come to find the Lord and gain Salvation then all of this will be worth it.Consider it done and I think some good is already coming from it although it is still painful:
