Personal Integrity

By: Joyce Meyer



When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom. The integrity of the upright will guide them, but the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

                                                                                             Proverbs 11:2-3



We live in a society that has so lost its sense of moral values that common decency is often not even practiced. Our world no longer honors God and is not concerned about integrity. Whether it involves cheating or committing fraud or specking half-truths and exaggerations that lead others to believe something that is not true, our culture is saturated with the lies of the enemy.
As believers, we live in the world but are not to be of the world (John 17:11,14). If we want to walk in confidence, we cannot compromise our integrity and act as the world does. Integrity is “affirm adherence to a code or standard of values.” Our code is the Word of God. There are certain things we wouldn’t even think of doing, but there are too many compromises, even in the lives of God’s people. There are things we do that Jesus would not do, and He is our standard of integrity.
Integrity is being committed to a life of excellence, as our God is excellent. It is doing the right thing every time, no matter what it costs us.

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.


I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …

Self-Confidence

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.


In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
