This portrait was presented to me as a gift for my birthday this weekend and is from a very close friend. It is such a beautiful representation of strength that can exist as one continues to go through the ups and downs of life. Regardless of where you come from always remember where you are going. Let nothing stop you from moving forward. At all costs walk into your destiny. ~Patrice Tankard
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
In all that you do consult with the Lord and allow Him to lead your path. Trust Him to bless your life. Trust Him for your success. Where would you like to go in your life? Let Him lead you. ~Patrice Tankard
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you, he will never let the righteous fall. Psalms 55:22
Take the time today to cast your cares upon the Lord. Tell him what you need. Thank him for what he has already done. Watch him move on your behalf.
“Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth forever.” Psalm 112:1-3
If you want to be blessed, then fear the Lord and keep his commandments. You will then be amazed at the wealth and riches that you will experience along with righteousness. You will gain favor with the Lord and you definitely will have his attention. That is quite awesome!
You will find that if you like to do something and you do it well, it does not feel burdensome to you. If you ever find out what you were born to do be sure to tweak it, refine it, perfect it and make a career out of it if possible. You will find that doing what you love feels like you are not working hard at all. Your gift will make room for you. Enjoy it!

“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.” Proverbs 3:3-4
Always remain faithful and always love and serve others. In doing this you will win a good name and favor in the sight of God and man. There is no better position to be in. Your life will be saturated in integrity and you will have influence on others. Do not take this position lightly but use it to the glory of God. Love God, serve mankind and be faithful.
“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm all the days of her life….Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land….She is clothed with strength and dignity, she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. Proverbs 31:1, 23, 26-31
What an outstanding description of a virtuous woman! Who is the most influential virtuous woman in your life? Find her and acknowledge and honor her and let her know how much you love and appreciate her.
“Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well.” Proverbs 5:15
This verse speaks volumes in encouraging men to be faithful to their own wives. Reading the entire chapter brings enrichment in that it illustrates the dangers of adultery and the reward for loving and embracing one wife. A man’s affectionate love and needs should only come from his wife. Drinking from his cistern refers to the intimate love, affectionate, passion, encouragement and deepness that should be indulged and submerged from the wife to the husband. It also works both ways that a woman should receive love and affection from her own husband. “A spouse should be considered a special gift from God and cherished with pleasure, purity and thanksgiving.” (Study Notes NIV, 908)
