Wisdom is a precious jewel!
For someone like me I am quick to get right into my head and think think about everything. This causes me to get into more logic than I do faith.
My logic and reasoning can be so loud that the voice of the spirit in me trying to speak is squealched out. I have been learning to stop that when my logic kicks in. Its just like starting a car you know when you put the key in to start it up. I have had to become aware of when I do that and hault it.
I directed my mind to know, to investigate and to seek wisdom and an explanation, and to know the evil of folly and the foolishness of madness.
Ecclesiastes 7:25 NASB
In this season I am learning that I have to re-direct my mond from what it may know, assume, view as suspecious, see as fear and shut it down at the gate and turn to voice of reason.
God has placed before me in my leadership sound coucel, a woman of God whom is full of wisdom. Pastor Juanita Gibbs is one that I am greatful that I can turn to and present what is currently going on in my life and world to get the wisdom I need to navigate life, the situation and things better.
My foolishness has been keeping the issues I face to myself in a way of pride, not allowing voices of wisdom to help me out. This has been the fown fall of many a folly in my life. I have been the cause of much of my own pain and hurt cause of leaning on my own limited understanding.
Seeking good Godly councel has been definitley a trajectory changer. I am finding I am getting through things better than I was doing it in myself;(pride).
I am so eternally greatful for her and my whole church family for the love, support, ear and arms in times like there have been. As Pastor beautifully brought out last Wednesday in teleclass. Find your spiritual family that will help you grow and mature.
