GOD PAUSE: I am really enjoying my journey right now of traveling through the book of Proverbs, the book of unfiltered wisdom. There is so much practical application to doing life well. Just this morning I was reading in Proverbs 24:27 where God says to “Go ahead, build your career and give yourself to your work. But if you put me first, you'll see your family built up.” Just what does that verse say to you right now in your life? In your world? For me, it reminds me about the importance of my focus. That it's okay to work diligently at my job. But not at the expense of my family's life. And in order for that to happen, I need to keep my focus on God being first in my life. Dear Papa, I so need your help in order to do that. Amen and amen.
