A Proverbs Wife

Working Willingly: Monday (2/14)

This meme is inspired by Proverbs 31:13. If you feel led to write and share your own ‘Working Willingly’ post, click HERE to get started.

My Bible reading goal for 2/7 was to read 7 chapters from the book of Psalms, however I was so excited when I realized that I had actually read 10.

If you remember, I did not meet my bible reading goal for the last week of January and that didn’t sit right with me. It showed me that I didn’t use my morning time wisely. Instead of reading my Bible I was probably checking my email, tweeting and on Facebook.

I’ve written countless times about making time for Bible reading and about the importance of it, but I am susceptible to temptation just like everyone else. Therefore I am happy to report that I not only met, but exceeded my reading goal this week. 😀

1.) FAITH:

  • Bible Reading: Psalm 121-127
  • Prayer: Monday – Sunday
  1. – Prayer with and for my husband
  2. – Prayer with and for my children
  3. – Intercessory prayer for my family and others
  4. -Prayer request from church

This Weeks Memory Verse

I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob. Psalm 132:4-6
