I am currently reading through Proverbs with the purpose of Journaling.

It is a book full of applicable sayings that are {mostly} simple to illustrate. Is that cheating? 🙂

I made this decision last Friday, thus, beginning on Proverbs 3.

Also, I do not do much studying on Sundays… perhaps that is slacking of me, but that’s the way it is for now.

On to some verses that stood out last Friday.

” [13] Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

[15] She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

[33] The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.”

Godly wisdom, as we learn throughout this entire book {and all of Scripture}, is something that comes only from God. There is no age limit and there are no experiences that can create true Godly wisdom.

So when we get the understanding and find the wisdom that only comes from ready, studying, meditating and truly learning and applying God’s Word, we will find happiness.

On Wednesday evenings at church, we are studying the book of Leviticus… and learning that HOLINESS is what brings HAPPINESS. This is basically what this means.

In our flesh, we all desire riches and all manner of wealth; but only when we seek God and study His Word and learn His Heart can we find actual peace and lasting happiness. 

Surely, this world offers a fleeting fun, happy feeling, for a season [Hebrews 11:25]. But it is just that… for a season, fleeting, a feeling. It is not deep and abiding and everlasting. 

Also, as a wife and mother, I desire a blessed habitation. As one who is home most of every day with my children, I desire a HAPPY habitation to. 🙂

And I have found, through days of striving to study and apply Scripture and then days of sorely lacking, that these principals HOLD TRUE

– every – single – time!
