It’s been hot here in Northern CA. You can see from this photo I took last Saturday that only the plants near the water are really green. #staynearthesource
The fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom, yet how much time do I spend, showing Him reverence? #natureisHisanctuary
If I truly believed that harm would not visit me but rather I would rest satisfied, surely I would cultivate this time spent with Him.
In my second coping skills class, I learned about “unhealthy” ways to deal with stress, that actually bring harm to the individual. We talked about everything from ruminating to hostility. By acknowledging the way I deal with stress, I can understand myself better. #acknowledgetheHolyOnetoUnderstandbetter
What I desire is steadfast love, which is not always given in family relationships. Truth is important (especially being honest with myself). What do I truly need? Finding those needs met in the LORD, I can rest in faith.
It takes faith to let go of my desires and take hold of God’s word. – Teresa #faithfultoHim
Proverbs 19:22-23English Standard Version
22 What is desired in a man is steadfast love,
and a poor man is better than a liar.
23 The fear of the Lord leads to life,
and whoever has it rests satisfied;
he will not be visited by harm.
Proverbs 9:10 NET
The beginning of wisdom is to fear the Lord,
and acknowledging the Holy One is understanding.
