Do you ever find yourself asking God for wisdom?
Umm, this girl does. All the time.
Sometimes I close myself in my room. In the darkness I’m honest with God.
I have no idea which way to go next, but I trust you’ll show me.
I have no clue what to say. Give me the words to say and the words to hold back.
Lord, I just messed that one up. Help me grow through it.
I ask for wisdom because I need it, but more so because He promises to give it.
If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. James 1:5-6 (The Msg)
That wisdom is found as I trust the Holy Spirit within me. You know, when my feelings are screaming one way and that gentle nudge inside says, “Hold up, Suz. Wait for me.”
I also find it in the Word, my Bible all inked up and underlined. My journals are my one-to-one walk with Him.
I find it in the words of others. I’m a book girl and they litter every room of my house. They are stacked by my bed. They sit on shelves and they take up space on my Kindle and my phone.
I can’t believe we are on week #5 of The Mended Heart P31 online Bible study. We have one more week to grow together through this study, and I hear many of you asking God for wisdom.
For the next step.
For the words to say and the words to hold back.
For help when you feel like you’ve fallen a step or two backwards.
Hold tight to the promise that you aren’t flying solo in this healing adventure. He’s with you every step of the way.
May I pray with you today?
Lord, thank you for the woman reading these words today. It’s no accident that she’s seeking wisdom and You’re assuring her that there’s an abundant supply of it. We don’t have to have all the answers, just the next one. Shine the light on what to do today. We take your hand and hold it close, trusting that You will guide us and show us the way. In Jesus’ name, amen.
If you’ve been asking God how to forgive someone — yourself, others, maybe even the person sitting in the next room, I’m so excited to share that my book (along with some other great resources) is on sale today through next Friday at $1.99.
Yes, $1.99. I know!
If you have enjoyed The Mended Heart, then I believe you’ll love The Unburdened Heart as well. It excites me to think that we might be spending a few more weeks together as you read it.
