Day 18 Work With Willing Hands

Another way for you to delight in the Lord is to do the work he gives you with willing hands and enjoy it.  To fulfill the desires of your heart, He has designed assignments specifically for you. Nobody else can do what he created for you to do. He will work with you, but He expects you to work willingly, with delight, also. In Proverbs 3, we find the lifestyle of a virtuous woman. Verse 17 says she equips herself with spiritual, mental, and physical fitness for her God-given tasks. Then she does those tasks willingly and with great pleasure....

Day 15 Keep your Promises

Proverbs 12:22 TPT Live in the truth and keep your promises, and the Lord will keep delighting in you, but he detests a liar.   I recently listened to a workshop on realizing your dreams.

The word heed means attentiveness, to...
