    Several verses spoke to me in this Chapter — peace in the home, the blessings of generosity, the power of our words — what we say to ourselves and others to control our life. Personally, I can often control what I say to others, however, it does happen, more often than I would like, that I utter unflattering words to myself. It’s good to acknowledge this for I can ask the Lord to purify my heart. This indirectly goes in hand with Pro 21:2 “Every man is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weights the hearts”. We may be able to fool ourselves, we may be able to fool others, but we cannot fool God.
    Praise God, have a blessed day and let`s watch the words we say to ourselves!

    Proverbs 21:13 really speaks to me. A month after I had comforted a young lady from losing her boyfriend, I, myself, received peace when my fiance let go of our relationship. Not because I was glad to have him out of my life, but because I didn’t focus on the negative – just how to move forward in a Godly way. I still have bouts where I get that lost feeling and deep sadness, but that doens’t usually last long. Though if something else is bothering me at the same time it can feel very overwhelming and depress me. It’s a horrible state to be in. Thank God for His protection even when I don’t fully appreciate it at the time. And thank YOU Mt. Zion for your prayers 🙂
