WISDOM



The word WISDOM means the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight.

I believe that true wisdom comes from decisions sent by the heart to the brain.  Whatever we desire, we develop.  For instance, at the age of 10, I decided I would have a career in art.  Drawing, painting, observing how shadows react to certain things, as well as nature in general stir within my very core.

As an adult, life happened.  It was necessary to join the rat race in order to support my family so I did what a normal person would do.  Work at a job that had no purpose whatsoever but to be able to survive.

Along the way, I have developed the skills necessary to do my job and give it 100% so that I could keep up with the competition.  But somehow the tentacles of my inner artist kept wrapping around me.  As my spirit grew in God, the bigger this artist inside grew until it was undeniable.  Wisdom taught me to use the talent that God has given me to further His kingdom.  And so here I am.  Wisdom told me that I would never be a preacher, speaking in front of thousands of people but God found a way for my voice to be heard.  I now write to you about it to anyone and everyone who would stop, read and listen.  It's what I do.  It's what I was born and planned for.  All I do is be obedient.  Critics don't faze me. Haters will always be ever present.  Inspiring you is my lot in life.  I have wisdom to know this.  So I thank you and appreciate your attention to what I have to say, because it does come from the heart.  It is who I am because God spoke.

I leave you with this... "Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom.  All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom.  Praise Him forever!" Psalms 111:10

Until my next rant.... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
