Watermark Community Church

A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Hi! My name is Attalie. I once viewed my faith through the lens of legalism and performance, trying to earn God's love. I wandered away from God’s best for me and did not seek to glorify Him. Thankfully, He gently softened my heart. The Lord has used community, my role as a community group coach, and many other Watermark ministries like re:generation (a biblical 12-step recovery program), Equipped Disciple (discipleship course), and Women's Bible Study to produce life transformation. I am in no way perfect and am on a lifelong journey of pursuing Christ and deepening my relationship with my Savior.

GOD'S PURPOSES EXCEED YOUR PLANS

Proverbs 19:15-29

15 Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep,
and an idle person will suffer hunger.
16 Whoever keeps the commandment keeps his life;
he who despises his ways will die.
17 Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will repay him for his deed.
18 Discipline your son, for there is hope;
do not set your heart on putting him to death.
19 A man of great wrath will pay the penalty,
for if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again.
20 Listen to advice and accept instruction,
that you may gain wisdom in the future.
21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
22 What is desired in a man is steadfast love,
and a poor man is better than a liar.
23 The fear of the Lord leads to life,
and whoever has it rests satisfied;
he will not be visited by harm.
24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish
and will not even bring it back to his mouth.
25 Strike a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence;
reprove a man of understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
26 He who does violence to his father and chases away his mother
is a son who brings shame and reproach.
27 Cease to hear instruction, my son,
and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
28 A worthless witness mocks at justice,
and the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity.
29 Condemnation is ready for scoffers,
and beating for the backs of fools.
(ESV)

MEMORY VERSES

Proverbs 18:1

Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire;
he breaks out against all sound judgment.
