Seven Important “P” Words That Can Make or Break You


1. Peace~Claim it; God has already given it to us.

I have said these things to you, than in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 ESV)

2. Procrastination~Stop it; We always regret it when we procrastinate. Why do we do it even though we know better?

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. (Proverbs 13:4 ESV)

3. Perseverance~stand strong through the struggle, and you will be rewarded.

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12 ESV)

4. Priorities~God first. Always. If you seek Him first, everything else will fall into place.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 

5. Peculiar~God chose us. He wants us to be different, to stand out. So that our peculiar manner will reveal his light.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. (1 Peter 2:9 KJV)

6. Phobia~When God is for us, who can be against us? If we believe in a holy and righteous God who is the creator of the world, then we should know he’s got it all under control. Nothing to fear.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9 ESV)

7. Pupik~ It’s yiddish for “bellybutton.” If you didn’t have one you’d be an alien! Wink



  1. Love this, Celeste! And I must admit, that’s the first time I’ve seen the word belly-button in a devotion/biblical teaching! 🙂

    • Thanks Vonda 🙂 I thought it was such a funny word I had to use it! When I was starting the blog, I seemed to use lots of “p” words…I guess because of “prescription,” and “pupik” stuck with me for some reason!

  2. I loved this post; the last one made me laughy!

  3. I loved this posts. You have great prescriptions for life! Loved learning your yiddish word also! Ha
