Simple Wisdom for the Struggle

It has definitely been a season of challenge, of growth, of grace and living in the struggle over the past month. The value of just reading the bible and being in God's word is one of the places where all the chaos and crazy just melts away and you find a quiet and a peace and wisdom when it comes to the bigger picture. I'm working on memorizing Proverbs Chapter 8. I believe it is one of the few times where the Holy Spirit actually names himself and speaks directly to us as the third person of the Trinity. It is an awesome chapter.

For anyone else wanting the constant noise and confusion and the many voices that speak into our lives to just stop and be quiet - find time for Jesus through the Wisdom of the word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. God can't say it any more clearly than at the end of Chapter 8:

32 “Now then, my children, listen to me;
blessed are those who keep my ways.
33 Listen to my instruction and be wise;
do not disregard it.
34 Blessed are those who listen to me,
watching daily at my doors,
waiting at my doorway.
35 For those who find me find life
and receive favor from the Lord.
36 But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
all who hate me love death.”
 
Have a great weekend!
