…. This is so true – All I want for Christmas is MY DAD who died 5 years ago!!!! I miss him…..
In life we face many challenges. Some are great and some are small. When we consider the many areas that affect our lives, such as our health, family, finances and spirituality, wisdom is something that we all need.
Wisdom is defined as learning acquired over a period of time : b: ability to see beneath the surface of things :c: good sense : : a wise attitude, belief, or course of action according to Merriam Webster dictionary.
The ability to make the best informed decision at any given time can save us and our families much pain and heartache. The Bible King James Version states Proverbs 4:7 as follows… “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” This scripture tells us that first we need to recognize the importance of wisdom. It is vital to our very existence.
The ending part of Proverbs 4:7 states, “That with all thy getting get an understanding.” It does absolutely no good to hear information but not understand it enough to apply it to your life in the situations that you face. In essence it’s useless. For example how many times have we sat in a classroom or a meeting and the lecturer has presented information and they ask if anyone has questions please raise your hand? No one raised their hand, but soon as they leave the meeting they find themselves asking others, “What are we supposed to do” or “How are we supposed to do it,” that was not a wise decision. When we consider the affects that our actions and decisions can have on our lives we must practice wise choices.
Knowing that I have the ability to gain knowlege and little nuggets from several people from all ages and walks of life is a blessing………… Don’t’ be neglectful to search the scriptures, communicate with other knowledgeable people and to pray to God for direction that is needed to handle your life situations and circumstances.
I must admit that earlier via the presidential announcement – my flesh and my spirit was bothered at the same time! They were EQUALLY upset! LOL Nonetheless, right about now I am sure that Vice President Biden is so excited because he is the one who started the interesting fiasco in the headlines. However, I am fine now! No more anger, frustration etc… I can think better now –
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.
As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife.
I will not focus on fussing at President Obama having ” a change of heart” ( as he stated ) I will just pray so that I can adequately obtain strategies and tactics from The Lord so that I can be PREPARED. The Bible is Right and somebody’s wrong!
P.S. Jesus is certainly on His way back……….OH – Lord, help me to be AND remain ready!
Whew Lord…. Ministry…Life… THEN AGAIN – Life….Ministry is all the same and both relative when it comes to ME….
When I am silent it is ONLY because I am either over thinking…. tired of waiting…. about to blow my top…. need a HUGE hug… crying inside….. falling apart….. AND CANNOT! GEESH .. I need a JESUS V-8!
Whether for friends or family… NEVER – EVER chase love…affection or attention! If it is not freely given then you surely should not want it…crave it…..or my goodness even think about it. Regardless of whom the individuals are or were to you…. Love yourself MORE! More so, the love…affection and attention that you are seeking is not worth your precious time nor space!
Im better now….. because the bible just is not a book of words but it is a book of SEEDS! I will continue to speak the word back to MYSELF….The Bible isn’t just a book of words it’s a book of seeds! Speak the word! Decree a thing and it shall be established! So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty–handed.
They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them! Children of Light it’s harvest time!
