A Fresh Start to the Day

By Jackie M. This scripture got my attention this morning and I want to give a little encouragement to you. Today, I want to remind you that God is capable of renewing the hardest heart and He can restore your spirit, if you are feeling discouraged. Pray over Psalm 51:10 ESV every morning, or during the course of your day, for a renewed spirit and a fresh start. Don’t let your heart be troubled and your mind go astray. Fill your thoughts with encouraging psalms, like this one, to help you throughout day to day life. As women, we need to stay committed to God’s Word first, and it will help us be more prepared as sisters, mothers, wives, or whichever category you identify with. Stay beautiful.

We want to control our husbands. The good stuff God put in us, which makes us a beautifully fierce woman and an effective helper, gets perverted and twisted into this dangerous tool …
