I Can Do ALL Things Through Christ!

(NLT) Phillipians 4:
10How I praise the Lord that you are concerned about me again. I know you have always been concerned for me, but you didn’t have the chance to help me. 11Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 12I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. 14Even so, you have done well to share with me in my present difficulty.

Verse 13 is my verse & motto of the week. I can do all thing through Christ, who gives me strength! I can do Prednisone through Christ who gives me strength! My focus and prayer this week is to, (despite this horrible medicine), keep my spirit sweet, try to be anxious for nothing (instead of anxious over nothing),  hold my hunger at bay (no over-eating as this med usually causes one to do), & do by best to get as must rest & sleep as I can btw. my 2 kids & this crazy stuff. I can do this. I can b/c of Christ...and I will. I am an overcomer & I will conquer. What will you conquer, through Christ,  this week?

Avoid Immoral Women/Adultery

1My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
listen carefully to my wise counsel.
2Then you will show discernment,
and your lips will express what you’ve learned.
3For the lips of an immoral woman are as sweet as honey,
and her mouth is smoother than oil.
4But in the end she is as bitter as poison,
as dangerous as a double-edged sword.
5Her feet go down to death;
her steps lead straight to the grave.
6For she cares nothing about the path to life.
She staggers down a crooked trail and doesn’t realize it.
7So now, my sons, listen to me.
Never stray from what I am about to say:
8Stay away from her!
Don’t go near the door of her house!
9If you do, you will lose your honor
and will lose to merciless people all you have achieved.
10Strangers will consume your wealth,
and someone else will enjoy the fruit of your labor.
11In the end you will groan in anguish
when disease consumes your body.
12You will say, “How I hated discipline!
If only I had not ignored all the warnings!
13Oh, why didn’t I listen to my teachers?
Why didn’t I pay attention to my instructors?
14I have come to the brink of utter ruin,
and now I must face public disgrace.”
15Drink water from your own well—
share your love only with your wife.
16Why spill the water of your springs in the streets,
having sex with just anyone?
17You should reserve it for yourselves.
Never share it with strangers.
18Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you.
Rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19She is a loving deer, a graceful doe.
Let her breasts satisfy you always.
May you always be captivated by her love.
20Why be captivated, my son, by an immoral woman,
or fondle the breasts of a promiscuous woman?
21For the lord sees clearly what a man does,
examining every path he takes.
22An evil man is held captive by his own sins;
they are ropes that catch and hold him.
23He will die for lack of self-control;
he will be lost because of his great foolishness.
