Hard Talks Start with Best Friend Talks

My son has a problem. I was using all my self-control not to be reactionary. My gut said “Call Shawn”, my best friend. I am so glad. She has walked this road with her children in years past (her kids are older than mine). And her faith is so very strong. It had to have been the Holy Spirit prompting me. I texted her- couldn’t call because was around too many ears. She prayed and gave me great, wise advice. I followed it and got through. Praise God for best friends and wise council!! God is so very good! He provides so much, blesses so richly and generously gives wisdom when we ask for it. Praise God!!😃❤️

Today Calls for Wisdom

Today, be sure to ask God for wisdom and discernment. No other day has needed it more. We need God’s wisdom and discernment to parce through our responsibilities and obligations well and arrive at our worship lifestyle sooner. God said to ask and He would give wisdom.😃❤️

Living Out Loud but Suffering in Silence

My grandma used to tell me to share the good with everyone but only share the bad with God. This is wisdom. I tend to live out loud- every personality test has me as extraverted as you can get. I process out loud. I reason out loud. I debate out loud on the spot. I worship out loud. But I tend to suffer in silence. This is why I blog. I can convey things I cannot convey out loud. But today, I realized I have not obeyed the second half of my grandma’s wisdom. Share the bad only with God. I need to work on that and work mostly on sharing it with God right away. I carry it too long, some wretched ego still at play. I lay it now at my Father God’s feet. I ask Him to lighten my load and murkiness and dance with me. I rested in Him today and I praise Him and thank Him for reminding me of grandma’s words and His capability and faithfulness to carry my burdens and hear my voice of sorrow and replace it with joy and peace. I am very thankful!😃❤️


Some gifts from God of wisdom involve speaking a certain truth at just the right time for the right reasons. Other gifts of wisdom from God involve silence at the right time for the right reason. And the highest level of wisdom gift from God involves knowing which to do when. All wisdom has God involved. And He is free to give these precious gifts to whomever humbly asks Him.

It is not a lost cause if wisdom has been elusive for anyone, just reveals a prideful heart. One humble prayer prayed in faith of God’s answer separates the unwise from the wise.❤
