Ephesians 5:10 (NIV)
1 Timothy 2:1-4 – Live Peaceful and Quiet Lives in All Godliness and Holiness
“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
Proverbs 15:8 – Prayer
“…prayer of the upright pleases Him.”
Colossians 3:20 – Children Obeying Their Parents
“Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.”
Hebrews 11:6 – Faith in Christ
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”
Psalm 69:30-31 – Praising God’s Name in Song and Glorifying Him With Thanksgiving
“I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD.”
1 Thessalonians 4:1-12 – How We Live
1 Thessalonians 4 — Living to Please God
“Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.”
“Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way. As one who is in the Lord Jesus, I am fully convinced that no food] is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean. If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died. Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil. For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.

Oh, thank you for feeding me God's Word today!!! Have not had much time in His Word today, so this blessed and filled me.
I love your name and hearing how it came to be. And for me, yes I liked Sarah Dawn, but when God gives you a new name, you rejoice. The old stuffiness has left and new life is coming in!
