Tips for Better Living

I had back-to-back "aha" moments coming from my efforts to read the Bible-in-a-Year.

First, right after I tweeted "Lord, be with me this day. Help me to do your will. Help me recognize the paths you open before me. Bless all who believe without seeing." I read "The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?" (Proverbs 20:24) This really hit the nail on the head for me because I want to understand everything along the way! I am working on trusting God without seeing where my next step will take me.

Proverbs 20:24 was paired with 20:25 "Don’t trap yourself by making a rash promise to God and only later counting the cost." (Proverbs 20:25) I had to go back and update Sunday's post because this 2nd Proverb absolutely underscored the lesson from Judges!

Today's tip for better living: Listen to what God is telling you. Don't doubt that prayers can be conversational.

Oh sister... this is so God timing! I am on a path right now and asking God... "Why would you want THIS for me?" I really don't get it.. but I feel a God nudge, so I guess I plod along and hope that He enlightens me at some point because I am totally baffled!
