Word Filled Wednesday Proverbs 31:26
Word filled Wednesday is here again, this time I picked a verse that speaks volumes to me as a woman. Women are known for their gift of gab. Yeah, I love to chat. I am learning to listen more too, and I pray I am getting better at that. My words can bring good or harm, wisdom or foolishness, encouragement or destruction and the list goes on.
There is one thing that I am so grateful to God for and that is his word. Through reading his word I am armed with his wisdom. I was at work the other day and a coworker was telling me about what her frustrations were regarding her soon to be fiance. I got all giddy inside as I listened to her and was able to unfold the words written in my heart the Lord has given me. It is amazing to see the light bulb in her eyes with me sharing my weekness in the same area and how my sin was revealed and now I have a different mindset with God's word written on my heart about it.
I got to share my weekness in sin in the same area and how through God's strength I can change it. I revealed how that sin looks in God's eyes. But all this wasn't done with finger pointing, it was done in a quiet, gentle and faithful way with God using his wisdom and putting them on my tongue. She later approached me and said she learned so much from me. I was so honored that God used me in that moment.
Now if I could just slow down enough in every circumstance to apply this to my life with my daughters, husband, siblings, etc. Not that I don't mind you, but in those trying moments when you feel the heat rising in your raw emotions. That moment is when I need to recite the verse the most. I pray God can use me more for his vessel for his glory and his infinite wisdom!
I pray you find this verse written in your heart forever more.
