Proverbs 4:23-27 ESV – 23 Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. 24 Put away from you crooked speech and put devious talk far from you. 25 Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. 26 Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. 27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil
I would have no hope without Your salvation. Jesus took all my sin, my damaged and broken heart, and gave me a new heart. You gave me Your Holy Spirit to enable me to obey You. My every obedience is a gift of worship, an acknowledgement that I am nothing apart from You . . .
