Day 23 Proverbs Challenge: Do What Jesus Did

by Sharman J. Monroe

“My son, give me your heart,
And let your eyes observe my ways.”

Proverbs 23:26 (NKJV)

We face thousands of questions everyday. Should I wear this or that? Should I take quit this job for another? Should I leave this marriage or stay and work on it? Should I get a new car? Should I straighten out the person spreading lies about me? Should I help my brother . . . again? Should I buy that house? How can I get back the friend who betrayed me? Should I just turn my back on my drug-addicted or alcohol-addicted child? Should I just give up all hope that things will change for the better?

Day 3 Proverbs Challenge: Love, Favor, Trust, Direction

by Latricia Bailey

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.

Life’s Highway

By Harriett V. Bennett (wordZwoman)

If you ever find yourself stranded along Life’s Highway, there is a type of GPS (called the Holy Spirit) that you have that is implanted once you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Good News: No invasive procedure needed. Just speak Romans 10:9 (NLT): “If you declare with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” In this new birth, it can get you back on the road from Dreams to Destiny. Follow your “heart,” and look for these street signs…
