Teach Me to Do Your Will

“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good spirit lead me on level ground.” Psalms 143:10 I do not know about you but I need the Lord to teach me quite a few things and especially about his will. It is important to be open to allow the Holy […]

Change the Tone

Proverbs 15:1 “A soft answer turneth away wrath but grievous words stir up anger” I love this scripture and have spent a lot of time experimenting with it.  In any situation where there is conflict I have found that a calm tone of voice can actually help to de-escalate any situation.

You are Right!

Be mindful of your thoughts and verbal confessions.  Whatever you perceive your life to be will be. If you think negative thoughts  you will get negative results. If you think positive thoughts you will get positive thoughts. Whatever you think, you are right! Patrice Tankard

Reaping Blessings

“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” Proverbs 3:9-10 Share your blessings.

Your Haters Will be Flabbergasted

“When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Proverbs 16:7 When you are walking in the ways of the Lord and doing the best that you can in this life with guidance from the Lord, your enemies will look at you in amazement. Even though […]
