Proverbs 21

Vs. 16 WOW. I do not want to rest in the assembly of the dead. It is so so so so so so important to keeping walking in Gods understanding. Gain teh wisdom and knowledge of Him you will be heading toward life.

This here is what my Friend Tonya wrote. It really spoke to me; i hope to you also!

Vs. 11- The scoffer and the simple are the same person. So when we let righteous correction fall on those who need it, Christian or not, it helps them. The scoffer or simple (he/she who does not know God for reals) man can be drawn to the Lord and become saved and the wise (he/she who does know God) man gains understanding in the way of the Lord. We sometimes try to "save" people from the problems we see them get into. We want to "help" them, we make excuses for them and all sorts of things. We try to make their life easier. Really all we end up doing is stand in the way of their growth! We need to be wise enough to see that love works differently. God says the a parent who does not correct their child does not love him but is set against him. So when we see someone struggling we need to let them make their own mistakes and pay their own consequences offering love and understanding in a way that shows them support yet not "saving" them or "bailing" them out. Likewise, we need to be willing to pay our own consequences and own up to our own mistakes, knowing that God is growing us all the while.

Vs. 28- Even well after a lie is told it continues to cause pain, even if that person who told it is long gone. So don't lie!

Proverbs 20

Vs. 13 stuck out to me. I believe sleep is refereing to sleeping spirit. And we should not let our spirit sleep. If we love to "sleep" then we fall into poverty meaning heading toward death, not happy, not blessed. But if you open your eyes and let your Spirit reign then you will have life!

I really like vs. 17, I actually chuckled when i read it. Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, But afterward his mouth is will be filled with gravel. Meaning to me that those whose trick, are decietful they might enjoy it at frist but it will bite then in the butt!

VS. 18 way important to seek God and godly counsel before making any big decisions.

Vs. 20 You better OBEY and HONOR your parents

Vs. 22 It's all in Gods hands, trust Him,He will Punish the ones who need it

Proverbs 19

Chapter 19

Vs.5 It's nice to read that to know those who are a false witness and speak lies will not go unpunshed. It's in Gods hands he will take care of it. I dont' need to try and get back at them or whatever. It's not my place, my place is to pray for them.

I think vs. 8 is telling us that when we have wisdom we are happy with are selfs, we will find good. We will be right where we need to be; and still growing; cause you never stop growing.

vs. 11 The discrection of a man makes him slow to anger, and his glory is to overlook a trandgression.that is a good verse. Im always saying to not focuse on your troubles because God has it under control.

Proverbs 18

Chapter 18

Vs.1 We need to be active with other people. God wants us to share, and love others we cant do this if we isolate ourselves. you are being shelfish if you do this. in my opinion

vs.2 WOW. a fool had no delight in understanding, but expressing their own heart. What self-fishness, not cool. I do not want to be like that.

I love vs. 10 The name fo the Lord is a strong tower, The righteous run to it and are safe. I Great to know that God is are pillar of streagth all we have to do is run to it, how easy.

vs. 13 make me think you need to listen before you do anything, don't answer until you know what you are answering to.

vs. 21 it is so true death and life are in the power of the tongue. Speak life and there is life, speak death and there is death. Speak of God and His perspective on everything! Because there is life in Him!

Proverbs 17

vs. 14 powerful, Strife is so bad you don't want it to start, becasue it is just like water once it starts to flow there is no stopping it.

I like Vs. 17 that friends are there to love you, but a brother/sister is there for you in troubled times.

vs.20 that is so true i believe that. you will not find any good with a deceitful heart, and if you have a bad month you fall into evil. It is so important to live righteous, to not be a fool, to take correction if needed. There is so much evil that wants to get a hold of you and it will if you do not become wise in God.

Proverbs 16

Chapter 16

vs.3 COMMIT your workd to the Lord and your Thoughts will be established. How great! If God has my everything He will help me with my thoughts. And to me your thoughts are everything. think on Good things and you will be doing good. Dwell on bad and well your are not going to be so happy.

Vs.7 So cool! He makes your enemies at peace with you! How awesome is that!

It is so important we give are everything to God. In my thoughts it's easy, give our lives to God, gain His wisdom and understanding, live righteous and bam you are right where you need to be!

Proverbs 15

More reminders about being slow to wrath. In verses 1 and 18. A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. 18 A wrathful man stirs up strife, But he who is slow to anger allays contention.

God is telling us something here!! Listen up everyone!! Be slow to anger! Rich in Love! That is other scripture in the Bible. I believe we need to take this to heart! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! You are only making it hard on you and the other person when you respond in anger/wrath/hatered. Respond slowly, with love, let God be the center of the situation.

I think when He say Slow to wrath. meaning STOP Listen to God what you should say, do from this point on. It is okay to get angry but not in a harsh words or physical, violent way.

Proverbs 14

This is what i recieved from Prov 14

Vs. 16- A wise man fears and departs from evil, But a fool rages and is self confident. Meaning to me that if you are around negativity, evilness, something that will not help with your walk with God but try and bring you away need to depart from it. A fool with justify there actions and think that they are a big shot and do whatever.

Vs.23 How good is this! A reminder to stop that gossiping, to stop talking about nothing, stay away from the drama, rumors, and lies. When we talk just to talk it will get you in trouble. I work with several people like this, and it is sometimes difficult not to get caught up in the chatter. This only leads to death, it only leads to people not wanting to be around you, trust you.

Vs. 29 Slow to wrath has great understanding. Be slow to anger, be clam don't just reacted respond.

Proverbs 13

In Vs. 3 It is so true "he who guards his mouth preserves his life; But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction. This the second time to read something like this. Your words are so powerful, we can't just open our mouth and say anything. We have to be careful what we say and when we say it.

Vs. 4 alright this one i am working on. I think i have a lazy spirit lingering on me. I know this scripture is true i believe i experienced it and i sure do not what to have a lazy soul. You get nothing done being lazy, your alone, empty, the list can go on.

Vs. 7 i that is so good. meaning all the wealth, things, popularity in the world does not make you rich. Love makes you rich! the love of God makes you rich! Heaven makes you rich!

Vs. 20 So good! We have to be careful who we spend the most time with. If it is with ungodly people, when negative we need to change that. Not saying you can hang with them, because they do need that love of someone who knows good wisdom. We need to make sure that the majority of our time is with godly wisdom.

This is so GOOD! I really an loving this. It is showing me things that i knew and didn't know. And opening my eyes to the importance to make some changes and really live a righteous life to the fullest. It am being challenge. And i am glad that i am!

Prov 11 and 12

Prov. 11

It's a good chapter, it really shows that it is way better to live a righteous life than a wicked life. Two Vs. that stuck out to me were

vs.2- You can't have pride in your life. It made me think how can you really share Gods love if you are so prideful? it makes me think that you are being selfish. And when you are being prideful you don't let correction come in or grow because you think you are all good, and to prideful to even humble yourself to say "I'm wrong" or "yes please help me" or whatever.
vs. 14-15- This is so good! It is important to get good counsel! From your pastor, an elder, someone who is walking in the spirit. Not only that but listen to what they have to say and open your heart to it. This Will help us in gaining wisdom and growing Spiritually.

Prov. 12
I really like the first verse, it makes me laugh. he who hates correction is stupid, it is so true!

In 15 i thought that is good and so true. Sometimes we are so caught in what we think no matter if it is right or wrong that we don't stop and listen when someone wise is telling us to stop, wait, no do this. It is so important that we listen to God's counsel, or who ever He puts in our live to counsel us.

To reply on vs. 23 I think your right. It is so important not to just go around blabbering to everyone. You need to wait in God's time to speak. There has been a time or so where i was in a situation where i could have opened my mouth and tell them my "knowledge" however it did not seem right to do it at them time. So i held back till the right time

Prov 9 and 10

Proverbs 9
Wisdom is prepared for us to take. All we have to do is show up and be willing to take of it. And there are times where there is evil trying to trip us up and tell us "go here do this it is so sweeter then going that way"

Proverbs 10

Wow such a great chapter! It's telling us straight up do this not that! Way cool! Be Righteous not wicked! Good things happen to those who are righteous and bad things to those who are not. I sure want to make sure that i am being righteous. meaning Right living in Gods eyes!!

vs. 2-3 tells all for Good toward righteous and wicked people cast away.

I read this from my bible i like it
Soul- A life, a living being, self person, mind, personality, inner desires and feelings.
I always here it as Mind, will and emotion. I kind thought this was deeper explantion, but the same.

So you wanted to know if you are being righteous check out Prov 10!

Prov. 8

I got out of this Chapter that Wisdom is the most important thing, better then money, popularity, and anything else you think is so highly important. from vs. 10-11. This wisdom has been here for a long long long time. And when you have this wisdom you obtain favor in God, you find life! from vs.35.

I really am enjoying this read!! I am learning so much!

I have one question when it is refering to She who is She? She meaning God? Wisdom? Me? I think i get it when i read but not really.

Prov. 6 and 7

Prov. 6

There was so much in this chapter to be told to us.

In a few sentences i get this.
Stay away from ungodly things, thoughts, actions, He doesn't not like it, He hates it. It only hurts you and brings death to you.

I almost feel as though all the chapters we have read so far all go together, they just read a different perspective or something. And the point of it all it Follow God, not evil. In God there is direction, understanding and wisdom, the other way just leads to hurt, pain then death.

It's totally cool and it reminded me about even the smallest thing i do, or think can effect me and my relationship with God. I don't want to fall in any traps of the devil, that's for sure.

Prov. 7

The harlot is like a symbol of all the evil tricky sneaky things in this world that try and keep us from God. And it will if we do not gain Wisdom and Knowledge of God.

No one reads this!

So i have come to the understanding that no one ever reads this blog and to my surpirse i dont really care. Now my sister does read it, (thank you). But that is about it. It is my fault though that no one reads it because well i'm so bad at posting. i hope to change that!

My First Offical Babysitting!

My nephew is hanging out with me today!! How fun! He is so cute!


I am going through Proverbs with some friends of mine in Texas and with My friend her at home. I thought i would share what i have been getting out of with you!
I have gone through 5 chapters as you can see!

Prov. 1

Fear God, don't try and live by the wisdom and knowledge of the world. Only listen to God and godly others for wisdom and knowledge!

Prov. 2

Not only listen to Gods wisdom and knowledge but act upon it. When you do you are on the right path, you are protected in Him. If you don't you are headed for destruction/death.

Prov 3

Give everything to God, He will take care of you. There is Happiness, peace in God. It will give you life if you go by Gods wisdom and not the worlds. It's not our way, not the worlds way but Gods way. There is peace with God there is comfort with God.

One thing that stuck out was V.27, Give good to those whom it is due. When God has told you to do something or give them something do it now. Don't hold there blessing back, or what God has for them. God could be using you to show them something.

Prov. 4

I like what my bible says at the title Securtiy in Wisdom! how true is that!
I need to put myself aside and listen to Gods Word and what He has for me. Think Gods way and I wont fall. The verse that really spoke to me was 23 Keep your heart with all diligence For out of it springs the issues of life. I thought wow, so if my heart is set on death, drama, negitivity, love, or whatever those will be the issues i face. I could have bad issues or good issues. I have realize that many times things will happen at work such as gossip, rumors, a decision needed to be made, stress, and i handle it different then others (sometime), But i am asked how can you handle it like that. And i think well cause i have God. Now i know that when my heart is set on God then my thinking is too!! Which is a big plus!! I hope that made sense.

Prov. 5

So i had to read this a couple times to get what it was saying. I feel bad saying that but it is true. I don't know if i was being distracted or what. But as i read it again and again this what i saw.
Stay away from evil, don't get caught up in immoral doing, God knows, He sees all. Follow Gods instructions keep his wisdom. You are only hurting God and heading toward death when you turn from Gods way.

My first Chicken!

Today I thought I would cook dinner. So after work I went around the grocery store and looked around. I found a Whole Fresh Young Chicken. I thought to my self how fun would this be!! Well I took the Chicken home and looked for some recipes to bake a Young Chicken and well to my surprise I didn’t find any in my new cook book or any where else; I was having trouble. So I just took some spices, veggies, butter, and made what you see in the picture! It was totally awesome. Now the one thing I did wrong was cook it up side down, I thought that was pretty funny. But hey it still turned out!! WOO HOO!!! I am not that bad after all. And if you wanted to know people think I can’t cook or I don’t like to, well let me tell you I love to cook, bake, grill, and all the above!!
