devotional wednesday

{ source : the olive tree } (free print / personal use only please)


While reading proverbs the other day the hubs and I came across these 3 questions in the study notes that coordinated along with chapter and  verse 16: /// 

Is the plan in harmony with God's truth?
Will it work under real life conditions?
Is my attitude pleasing to god?

Commit to the LORD in whatever you do and your plans will succeed /// proverbs 16:3 

what a great promise /// happy wednesday!

p.s. linking up with free pretty things today

Oh I love that verse....and yes....so much promise. I love the questions you posted as well. Oh how I can use the question "is my attitude pleasing to God"....unfortunately, that is one I need to revisit more often than I'd like to admit!

This is awesome! Especially since I've been telling myself that I need to look at every situation like this. It's easy to focus on the things that don't need our attention and get caught up.

i love those questions--a .lot.

in the class i'm taking, we are learning to help clients ask similar questions and one is "What is your goal? What do you value?"
We're learning that a lot of people of course, christian or not have "values" but in moment to moments in life, we don't really live our values, we don't stop and get mindful of them, anyway, I like that question, "What's your goal here?" Even in an argument with your spouse or something....it's golden..
