Feeling a bit disoriented? Do you feel like you have lost your direction and purposefulness?
For the last few weeks, my blog has been about the gift of God’s wisdom as written in Scripture for our time here on earth. I have found in my own personal life, I have had to re-group and re-focus with keeping on course for a sense of peace and hope.
We can have
Wise people have enough sense to find their way, but stupid fools get lost. Proverbs 14:8.
King Solomon said this, not me. Thing is, he is right. Seeking and asking God for good sense will help you find your way. Allow God to speak to you and take time to pause, pray, and then plan. Life is always clearer when we use good sense in making wise decisions. There were days I was trying to desperately find my way and didn’t use the 3 P’s of good sense. I rushed ahead. It meant I had to get back on track and restart going forward.
I certainly understand how hard it is to have all the responsibility as a single mom. Life sometimes doesn’t give you a break. Using the three P’s (pause, pray, and plan) will help you to gain good sense.
If you do the right thing, honesty will be your guide. But if you are crooked, you will be trapped by your own dishonesty. Proverbs 11:3
Yep, Solomon said it again. Being trapped by living a crooked life and being dishonest will eventually catch up. It will come out eventually. Living a life of honesty may be hard, but it is right. There were many times raising my children, I felt alone for standing up for honesty. I knew I was doing what was right in the sight of God and I had to persevere. Doing the right thing and being an honest person for life decisions will leave little room for getting trapped.
You may feel lost with no purpose but don’t give up. If you purpose in your heart to have good sense and live a life of honesty, you will find your way. God will help and guide you.
Take a few minutes to pencil out some of your troubles and questions about the direction of your life. Now that you have them written down implement the three P’s: PAUSE, PRAY, AND PLAN…. Then watch the adventure happen!
“Everything you were taught can be put into a few words:
Respect And Obey God! This is what life is all about.” Ecclesiastes 12:13
- Believe in yourself to live a life of good sense
- Believe in yourself to live a life of honesty
- Believe you have purpose and direction to find your way
- Now that you do, what steps can you take?
YOU CAN DO THIS!
