When you make a vow to God, do not delay to fulfill it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow. It is better not to make a vow than to make one and not fulfill it. Do not let your mouth lead you into sin. And do not protest to the temple messenger, “My vow was a mistake.” Why should God be angry at what you say and destroy the work of your hands? Much dreaming and many words are meaningless. Therefore fear God. 

Ecclesiastes 5:4-7  New International Version

Prayer: Lord help me to be a person of my word especially when it comes to You. Amen

Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person,
    do not associate with one easily angered,
or you may learn their ways
    and get yourself ensnared.  Proverbs 22:24-25

Prayer: Lord help to stay on an even keel today and not be the one people should avoid. Amen

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.

For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow.

But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 English Standard Version

  African Proverb

Prayer: God help me to work with the people you have put by my side and not  against them. Amen

Psalm 116

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;37aa1983a9518f9b8b1a242e0195a959
    he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
    I will call on him as long as I live.

The cords of death entangled me,
    the anguish of the grave came over me;
    I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
    Lord, save me!”

The Lord is gracious and righteous;
    our God is full of compassion.
The Lord protects the unwary;
    when I was brought low, he saved me.

Return to your rest, my soul,
    for the Lord has been good to you.

For you, Lord, have delivered me from death,man
    my eyes from tears,
    my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before the Lord
    in the land of the living.

10 I trusted in the Lord when I said,
    “I am greatly afflicted”;
11 in my alarm I said,
    “Everyone is a liar.”

12 What shall I return to the Lord
    for all his goodness to me?Sunflowers

13 I will lift up the cup of salvation
    and call on the name of the Lord.
14 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people.

15 Precious in the sight of the Lord
    is the death of his faithful servants.
16 Truly I am your servant, Lord;
    I serve you just as my mother did;
    you have freed me from my chains.

17 I will sacrifice a thank offering to youthanks
    and call on the name of the Lord.
18 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people,
19 in the courts of the house of the Lord
    in your midst, Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord

My story.  Leslie Rose K
Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister d7784ed9616f7618bfc586e463a094e9
is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister
lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. 
But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness
and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they 1c251b42de9694ab195291a23e78ffc0
are going, because the darkness has blinded them.  1 John 2:9-11  NIV924d9bd4cfb93d1bba1eae6a100e8795mother-teresa
Prayer: Lord, sometimes it can be challenging to love those around me.  Please help me to dig deep today, and reach out in love. Amen

One gives freely, yet grows all the richer;
    another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
 Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
    and one who waters will himself be watered.   Proverbs 11:24-25 English Standard Version


Prayer:Help me God to be generous with everything You have given to me, and put in me. Amen

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
    let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
    let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
 For the Lord is a great God,
    and a great King above all gods.
 In his hand are the depths of the earth;
    the heights of the mountains are his also.
 The sea is his, for he made it,
    and his hands formed the dry land.

 Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
    let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!  Psalm 95:1-6  English Standard Version

Prayer: Lord even though I have a strong feeling Heaven will not be a quiet place, but one filled with many different sounds of praise, let me be a vessel of praise now, on earth, where we need your presence so much.  Amen
