Proverbs 20:22,24

I decided to take the blog in a new direction today, to do something different. I have been reading the book of Proverbs [NLT Version]. This morning in my reading these two verses really stuck out to me and I immediately had to share them on social media.

I feel like both verses are something most everyone can relate to at just about any given time.

We have all been wronged by someone and sought to get even with them. I know I have been here. It's a definite struggle. We tend to want to handle things our way, and we learn most of the time that our way is not always best. If we pray and talk to God about something someone has done to us, we need to learn to leave the problem there. He will take care of it for us. Therefore, we needn't worry about it anymore. [Yes, I know, that is easier said than done].

Many times in my reading through Proverbs I have read about God directing our steps or has a better plan for us. I am working on this very thing in my life right now. Trusting where He is leading me and not trying to question or figure it all out. Sometimes, things in our life are not meant to be understood. We just need to sit back and let Him steer for we will not go astray!


  1. A well written book on Biblical Peacemaking is Resolving Everyday Conflict by Ken Sande. It is one of those that should be read and re-read. We also just finished the small group study which opened up some great conversations within our small group about Biblical Peacemaking and being able to glorify God within conflict. Highly recommend either the book for individual study or the small group study for guided in depth discussion with a group.

    1. Hey Cass,

      Thanks for the info. May check into it as our Bible Study moves along. We are reading John right now. I can't explain how it makes me feel. This one small gesture started by me and my aunt is already reaching people I didn't think it would.
