THANKFUL THURSDAY...wisdom

Thank you LYNN for hosting Thankful Thursday this week.
Isn't it funny that when we are younger (in age) we think we have accumulated all of the wisdom that we need for a lifetime. In fact in our teen years, often times we think we "know it all". We can't wait to graduate from high school and get out on our own and do things our own way. Where NOBODY can tell us what to do.
(lol)

And then when we grow alittle bit older and realize that we are not such a smart young buck that we thought we were - in fact, we wish we could go back in time and do a few things over.

Wisdom ... when and how do we obtain this in our life?

Wisdom is not something that you can accumulate overnight. It is much like a savings account that accrues slowly over a period of time. A person who consistently adds to his/her account will eventually accumulate a great sum.

ISAIAH 50:4,5 "He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to hear as the learned. The Lord God has opened My ear."

One of the greatest source of wisdom is the Word of God. Daily - we need to study the Word of God and live according to His commandments. Now this is making a HUGE deposit into our account of wisdom.

"A big difference exists between a head full of knowledge and the words of God
literally abiding in us."
-BETH MOORE

I am thankful for the wisdom of God, that He is instructing me not only thru His Word but also thru my trials and tribulations. It is my prayer that I will seek His leading and instruction each step I take thru this journey that I call LIFE!
