Turn Your Ear To Wisdom

For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.  He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones.  Proverbs 2:6-8

There are so many paths in life that we can take and some of those paths can be full of potholes.  There are those that seem to step in every pothole and we wonder why they continue down the same path.  Are we only seeing their potholes and making their potholes our focus so we don't have to look at our own potholes?  Why do we continue to dome of the same things over and over wondering why nothing changes.  It's simple; Without change nothing changes!  We need to step out of our denial and face the situation or circumstance that need to be changed in our lives.   We need to seek God's wisdom and change the things we can.  We need to seek God's direction for our lives and let Him lead us to make the changes needed in our lives.  He will always choose the right path for us we when place our faith and trust in Him.

Serenity Prayer
by Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971)

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
