#AlltheSingleLadies: Give Me Answers...!

When I call, give me answers. God, take my side! Once, in a tight place, you gave me room; 
   Now I'm in trouble again: grace me! hear me! 

You rabble—how long do I put up with your scorn? 
   How long will you lust after lies? 
   How long will you live crazed by illusion? 

Look at this: look 
   Who got picked by God! 
   He listens the split second I call to him. 

Complain if you must, but don't lash out. 
   Keep your mouth shut, and let your heart do the talking. 
   Build your case before God and wait for his verdict. 

Psalm 4:1-5 (MSG)

#AlltheSingleLadies: Keep Godly Relationships

How well God must like you— you don't hang out at Sin Saloon, you don't slink along Dead-End Road,  you don't go to Smart-Mouth College. 

Instead you thrill to God's Word, 
      you chew on Scripture day and night. 
   You're a tree replanted in Eden, 
      bearing fresh fruit every month, 
   Never dropping a leaf, 
      always in blossom. 

You're not at all like the wicked, 
      who are mere windblown dust— 
   Without defense in court, 
      unfit company for innocent people. 

God charts the road you take. 
   The road they take is Skid Row.

Psalm 1
