footsteps in SnowGod’s Word – If the LORD delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; Psalm 37:23
Proverbs 25
Heavenly Father,
We sing praises to your name, we love you and we will lift up our voice to worship you. Your ways are higher than our ways.   It is only through your love and mercy for us that your daughters can do any good thing.  We thank you for your grace and glory – favor and honor…If you LORD delight in your daughter’s way, you make her steps firm.  We will seek your face and your counsel. Thank you for your love and your forgiveness toward our transgressions and sins.  We will forgive those who sin against us.  Your daughters will not bring hastily to court, for what will you do in the end if your neighbor puts you to shame?  Your daughters will not argue their case with a neighbor, and will not betray another man’s confidence,  or you who hears it may shame us and we will never lose our bad reputation.   Your daughters desire to be the woman that has a word aptly spoken that is like apples of gold in settings of silver.  Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is a wise woman’s rebuke to a listening ear.  We will seek godly wisdom and speak more of your words than our own thoughts or opinions.  Our desire is to be like the coolness of snow at harvest time a trustworthy messenger to those who send them; so we can refresh the spirit of those who send us. Like clouds and wind without rain is a man who boasts of gifts he does not give.  We will not boast in things that we do not give or boast about tomorrow.  Thank you for your grace and glory in our lives.  You are a “Mighty” and “Holy” God your wisdom is higher than the heavens.  We thank you for the gift of salvation through Christ.  As we celebrate the season of his birth lets us not forget that Jesus is the reason for the season.  It is in Jesus name we pray…Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
