Proverbs

A few weeks ago I started reading a blog called She Reads Truth, as you can remember me mentioning them in this post (here). It is a blog dedicated to bible studies and bringing other Christian women together. They are currently doing a study over Proverbs, and let me tell you that it absolutely blowing my mind. I have always loved Proverbs, but have never taken the time to go through chapter by chapter, word by word and truly study it. Let me tell you guys, there is so much truth in it. I have only gotten to chapter 8, while all of the other girls are on chapter 22, but I have already seen so much of what the Lord calls us to do and felt the need to share!

In the small amount of time I have spent on this study thus far, the Lord has been changing my heart and showing me what I truly need to be longing for; Him.

He calls us to protect our hearts from anything that will lead us astray from Him and His path.
He calls us to grow in wisdom of Him and His word.
He calls us to fear Him.
He calls us to surrender.

"...blessed are those who keep my ways. Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it. Blessed is the man who listens to me watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me find life and receives favor from the Lord."
-Proverbs 8:32-35

God is GOOD, y'all. So so good.
