Lean Into God 2021

Day 13 and Proverbs 13, Ouch! this chapter messed me up and shut me down. I’m in my feelings as Pastor Allison would say; but I got myself together real fast because I am walking in obedience and with much more wisdom. As I mentioned in my first post, the Holy Spirit highlighted to me that it would be wise to trust in God and obey His instructions. The Father knows us so well. My Lord, teach me and show me the errors of my ways.

While a few other verses hit home for me, Proverbs 13:1 resonated in my soul today.

A wise son heeds [and is the fruit of] his father’s instruction and correction, but a scoffer listens not to rebuke”

I am thanking God for this day, time and season of my life. I was a “hot head.” I rarely listened to others when it concerned me. I was always right. I rarely made a mistake. And challenged anyone who attempted to correct me. The scripture described such a person as prideful. I was a foolish child, rebellious and stubborn (smiling at myself). As I recall the warnings and instructions of my mother regarding a love affair and so many other things, I remember her telling me “Nikki, you just met this guy, what do you know about him and about love, you are moving too fast. I can hear myself whispering and talking back, but “I love him.” It is true what they say, mothers knows best and have great intuition. To make a long story short; my lack of obeying or listening to my mother’s warnings or instructions caused me great pain and hardship, but a lesson well learned. As an adult, my mom still offers me advice and yes I still frown at times, but I do take it to heart and remember my previous pain and suffering. I am now in a mature place where I can comfortably accept someone who provides instructions and guidance from their wisdom and experience. I stand in a place of repentance and acceptance. I accept the rebuke of the Holy Spirit. I know all good instructions comes from a place of Love.

I continue to give God all praises for being mindful of me and always having His hands on my life even when I do not deserve it.

I am leaning into God and I love the Lord.
