understanding

Daily Bible Verse; September 21, 2018

Counsel is mine and sound wisdom

I am understanding, power is mine.
“By me kings reign,
And rulers decree justice.
 “By me princes rule, and nobles,
All who judge rightly.
 “I love those who love me;
And those who diligently seek me will find me.
“Riches and honor are with me,
Enduring wealth and righteousness.
“My fruit is better than gold, even pure gold,
And my yield better than choicest silver.

(Proverbs 8:14-19)

…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.
