We have started a new series called "Wisdom Road" which focuses on the book of Proverbs. Honestly, sometimes I think George gives us so much, that there is just so much revealed, that my small brain has difficulty processing. This is part of the reason I began to write Armchair QB: to give myself a place to gnaw on things and hopefully increase my understanding.
Tho there were a few pieces I thought about writing on, this passage stuck out:
My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,
Sometimes it seems really difficult. To even be in this process, I must admit I fail. I forget to pray. I forget He is there to even talk to and just plow through difficult things on my own. I do not live the way I want. Often I wish I were better at forgiveness or being gracious or simply being content, but I grouse and I shut down or I strive for more than I need to be. None of that is me seeking His will, of course, but it is my first reaction. His Word challenges me to die to my reactions and my desires, but more often than not, I would prefer you to die to yours.
Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. (1John 3:2 NIV )
How amazing will that day be? Not only to see Him, my Love, but to be like Him...not stumbling in a process but standing in Glory. I look forward to that day! But for now, I will continue...to actively pursue Him and His wisdom.
