Welcome to my blog: I intend to share heartfelt writing about anything that comes to mind.
Take Up Your Cross

What are you praying for?
Anything and everything!
The above is the simple answer. Since we don’t write on Sunday, I think I am going to write a separate entry on my thoughts about prayer. It has been a busy day today and I think I can concentrate better on this tomorrow.

Today I am going to go back to Proverbs for a bit. Explain Proverbs 14:14.
Proverbs 14:14 (KJV)
The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.
I have spoken before about how the Bible often refers to what is in the heart. When we are following and serving God from our heart, our focus is on him. When we are not following God, our focus is on ourselves. If we are backsliding, then our focus is on ourselves. I could say a lot on this topic, but I am honestly not in the mood to write tonight. Maybe I can add thoughts on this tomorrow too. As you read through proverbs, you may notice a reoccurring theme. If you are wise, you will provide for yourself and your family. You will not rely on gifts and handouts, but will be diligent and work for your own reward. So I believe it is saying a good man will do just that. He will satisfy himself. Now I am not saying you can’t ever accept charity when you need it. However, if you are not willing to help yourself, how can others truly help you? Another thought is that a backslider and good man alike will be rewarded according to their own works by God himself. You reap what you sew.
