Be who you are, every where you go!

Yesterday, I realized something very profound that I don't think I have ever been taught but I KNOW that I need to share it. You know, pay it forward! Of course, if you know me, I am going to share this thought first with scripture:

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.
Proverbs 31:10-12

 The bold part of the scripture is something I want to discuss. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life (Proverbs 31:12). WOW. What a major responsibility we have as women, as wives, as God's people. I realized if I am doing anything in my life, whether it be in private, in my home, alone or with people that brings me embarrassment, I need to stop doing that. If there is something that I am doing that I would want to hide from my friends at church or co workers, I need to stop doing that! We need to be living truly genuine lives. Who I am in public, should be who I am in private. There shouldn't be a separation should there?

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel Phil 1:27

I like to think of God walking with me all throughout the day. He knows and sees anyway, so why not remind myself of that?! Oh my!! It's time to be walking, living in Holy Fear! The kind of fear, that does not make you afraid of God, but be afraid to be OUT of His will for your life.

Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but fear your God. I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:14



Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name. Deuteronomy 6:13

And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, Deuteronomy 10:12

  1. So true, we represent God in the same manner in public and private. He deserves our obedience.

  2. Funny. Just watching a sermon on DVD a couple hours ago, and the guy said "If you are doing something, and you can't take the Holy Spirit with you, you shouldn't be doing it." He put his hands up as if to be putting his arm around the invisible Holy Spirit, as if He were standing next to him. Such a visual! So true though. As for the "She brings him good..." I have had this in my head for months... each day I think of what I can do to show Johnny "good" ness. I would love it if I could just buy flowers, or some sort of gift, but he is so darn impossible to buy for! I wish it were that easy. Nope. I just have to focus on keeping the house tidy and feeding him yummy food, and, of course, the bedroom :) Anyway... SORRY! You know me - type as I think! Have a blessed day :)
