Concerning the Righteous


Hello, beauties! This post is about a study I did in the book of Proverbs. I wanted to find verses concerning those who are righteous. Whenever I found the words righteous, upright, pure in heart, trustworthy, etc, I wrote down what was said about them. It was a really cool study! I found a lot of reoccurring themes and seperated them into five catergories. I felt led to study this because I believe it's healthy to look in the Word and remind yourself of who you are in Christ Jesus. 

1. IDENTITY


- I am as bold as a lion
- I have Joy and Gladness
- My light shines brightly
- Though I fall, I will rise
- I understand what is right

Verses: (10:28, 13:9, 24:16, 28:1, 28:5, 29:6)

2. Paths established by God/I will not be moved


- He establishes my paths/makes them straight
- My steps won't be hampered 
- I will not stumble. I won't be moved. I will stand firm. 

Verses: (3:6, 4:12, 10:25, 10:30, 11:5, 12:7, 16:3)

3. Blessing/Provision 


- Blessings crown my head
- My children are blessed
- My house is blessed
- Good health
- Success
- Prosperity 
- Honor
- Life
- What I desire, will be granted

Verses: (2:7, 3:8, 3:33, 10:3, 10:6, 10:24, 11:19, 11:28, 13:25, 20:7, 21:21, 28:14, 28:20, 28:25)

4. Relationship with God


- The Lord hears my prayer and it pleases Him
- He loves me
- He delights in me
- I am in His confidence

Verses: (3:32, 11:20, 12:22, 15:8, 15:9, 15:29) 

5. Safety/Protection/God is my Refuge


- I am without fear of harm
- God is my refuge and shield 
- I am delivered from death
- I am rescued from trouble
- No harm will come to me

Verses: (1:33, 2:7, 2:8, 10:2, 10:29, 11:4, 11:6, 11:8, 12:21, 14:32, 16:17, 18:10, 28:18, 28:26)

Office Bun

Hey girls! Any of you work in an office where you can't wear your hair down? Messy buns and ponytails can get old real fast. Here is a great hairstyle option! 

Step one: section off the front of your hair and make two twist braids on both sides (total of four front braids) 

Step two: make a low three strand braid with the remaining hair

Step three: loosley twist and pin the braid into place

Step four: take your front braids and wrap those under and around your bun. This creates a cool "crown-like" effect. You will need to pin these braids into place as well. 

And you're done! Cute, simple, and easy!
