A Sunday Thought~ 9 Godly Traits

9 Godly Traits that I want to have.
This past week I have been thinking about Godly traits that I think I need. I have been studying about wisdom in my Bible. As I seek to be a better wife, mom, and friend, I want to access all the wisdom that only God can give me.



And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship. 
Exodus 31:3

These traits that I want to have include:

I want to fear the Lord. 
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7

I want to be teachable.
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
Proverbs 8:33

I want to watch my mouth. I want to talk less and I want my speech to build up and encourage others.
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
Proverbs 10:19
The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
Proverbs 15:2

I want to stay away from sin. I know that sin will pull you in. I want to make sure that I recognize these pulls and weaknesses and keep myself out of the temptations they might provide.
A wise man fearth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident. 
Proverbs 14:16

I want to guide my heart in the right direction. I want to make sure that I make that I am focused on Godly things and not worldly things.
Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
Proverbs 23:19

I want to make sure I examine all my choices. I want to consider how these choices, whether they are big or small daily decisions, will impact my future here, and in eternity.
O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
Deuteronomy 32:29

I want to make sure that I am careful in my choice of friends.
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
Proverbs 13:20

I want to make sure that I know that everything that happens in my life is in God's hand.
For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God: no man knoweth either love or hatred by all that is before them. 
Ecclesiastes 9:1

These 9 Godly traits are what I want to focus my life around each and everyday. I am praying that the holy spirit will help me grow in wisdom that I will be a Godly christian woman, mom, wife and friend that He would have me to be.

Happy Monday Friends!!
