Hurt feelings

Isaiah 43:18 – Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

Hurt Feelings

Management support

John 17:24 – “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.”

Management Support

Unhealthy relationships

Unhealthy Relationships


Colossians 4:5 – Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.

Proverbs 29: 11 – A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.

Temptation - Gwendolyn Carole Tipton

Signs and wonders

Isaiah 9:2 – The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.

A Lover


Micah 7:18 – Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.

Prayer: My God, when I commit sins of omission, I feel badly. I confess my sins and ask you to show me how to follow your word. Thank you for your forgiveness again and again. Amen.
