HOME KEEPER'S JOURNAL: UNDERSTANDING


Today's blog entry prompts in bold are provided by Sylvia over at http://www.christianhomekeeper.org/.  Check her out for good ideas each week and other people's entries with the same prompts.  

In my Kitchen today …..Nothing,  Barrett had ball games and Dalton had basket ball practice, so we stopped at Arby's.  So the kitchen's clean for tomorrow's start.


Proverbs 1:5 says: Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance – What this means for me is …..  I need to constantly be in prayer and in study, because my ultimate guidance HAS to come from God!

Proverbs 17:10 tells me that “A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred blows into a fool.” – So I know that ….. When I truly get hurt by rebuke, its confirms to me that I am truly trying to do God's will because when I encounter rebuke, it make me want to seek God's will even more.

Proverbs 17:27 says that “Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.” What this means for me as a woman of God is …….  As a Christian, the world is constantly watching to make sure I'm "practicing what I preach".  If I can maintain my composure and peace even through the midst of trails and chaos, it's a testimony to God, myself and others that I do trust in God.


Proverbs 13:15 talks about favor – “Good understanding gains favor, but the way of the unfaithful is hard.” –  When I am willing to study and seek God's will, I'm saying "yes" to Him and I believe He'll bless me; but when I turn for him my life will be more difficult. 

 

And finally, Proverbs 20:5 tells me that “Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out” – This is important for me because ……  I want counsel, not just approval.  I want to do God's will and I want to seek  out people and information that will help me to achieve this..
