The most important this is to keep seeking God everyday!
He is creative and wise and understanding and wonderful. https://refugecam.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/The Metamorphosis Series-No Good Thing Does He Withhold By Bre Whitehead The LORD has been walking me through a time of understanding discipline in the faith.
He has continually drawn me back to Psalm 34 in the past few months, which beautifully depicts the discipline behind walking in righteousness, and the grace that is bestowed on those who walk uprightly.
Psalm 34:9-10 tells us, “Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack!

Also gossip (Leviticus , Romans , Psalm 15:3), lying (Proverbs - 19), and boasting in anything but the Lord (Romans , Jeremiah -24). It’s not “no gossip unless they hurt you, they talk about you, you’ve told them this to their face, they’re younger/older than you, they’re leaders/famous…” We can come up with so many reasons that we think justify our sin.

Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.” (Proverbs -22) The father is advising his son to pay close attention to his advice that he would not wander of the highway of holiness (Isaiah 35) and into the darkness of sin, which is very reminiscent of Deuteronomy 6:4-9, where God says to Israel, “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
