Morning Motivation Proverbs 3:18

I was feeling a bit sad last night, and I posted that truth on Facebook.  I said I was feeling sad, but I did not want to surrender to that feeling, so I was going to dive into a good book.  I find that reading does help us escape, if only for a moment, the things in life that like to take us and shake us to the point of sorrow.

My Facebook friends came through as they always do with words of encouragement and love and I am so thankful for those who take the time to care.

I have a Facebook friend Amber who I met on a road trip to New York.  We met in the hotel restaurant, and I found her to be such a nice person, and because of that, we became Facebook friends.  Amber sent me a scripture last night, Proverbs 3:18 I must say I was not familiar with this scripture but it brought me comfort in the moment, and I decided to do a bit of research on the text.

She (wisdom) is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; 
those who hold her fast will be blessed.”
Proverbs 3:18

I found that the “she” in this writing means “wisdom”.  I pray daily for God’s guidance and wisdom as I travel this path.  I do find that when I embrace the things I have learned from God’s word that I do feel at peace and for that I am thankful.

How do we find God’s Wisdom?

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him
James 1:5

Thank you, God for giving us wisdom.  Help us to seek your knowledge in all things, and I pray that as we travel this life, you help us to use this wisdom to direct our paths

For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things 
that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
Proverbs 8:11

Hope you guys have a wonderful week.
Let’s pray for God’s wisdom in this life and put the good and bad in His hands.
God Bless You
(Thank you Amber:-)

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
