Praying God’s Word: Week 4

Click here to read about Praying God’s Word with me!!! praying


Week 3 Snippet: 
Topic: My Husband’s Job
 
Scripture:
Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17 (NASB)

May the Lord our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful. Psalm 90:17 (NLT)

What God showed me this week:
*I loved SO many versions of this scripture. I loved how in some interpretations the word “favor” was interchanged with the word “beauty!” >>> Let the BEAUTY of the Lord our God be upon us!

*Without God’s guidance (his favor), our efforts WILL NOT be successful.

*I seemed to have NO problem praying “confirm the work of Matt’s hands” over and over and OVER this week! With his recent job transition, this seemed so perfect for him and for our family! We are really believing that God is going to do BIG things in and through Matt as he works full time for Two-Five/graphics/etc.

*And, in praying this all week, God did some EXCITING things! There are some new visions for Two-Five that Matt is working on…and, there are some ways that I think God may even use me to help with some fun opportunities with Two-Five. (Etsy store…getting a line of kids’ shirts in boutiques…etc.) Things just totally fell in our laps this week (thank you, Jesus!) and we are anxious to see where they go…and how God guides us in and through them! May he make our efforts successful!


Up Next: Week 4:
Topic: Me…as a wife

Scripture: 
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
Hebrews 10:24

It's better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home.
Proverbs 21:9
