Thankful Thursday - Wisdom

This week's topic: What wisdom has God given you recently about a situation or relationship? How has His wisdom changed your life? What is your favorite scripture about wisdom?


My favorite scripture regarding wisdom is this:

"If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him." James 1:5 NIV

Isn't it great? If we don't know how to handle something, we can ask God who is willing to help us - and He won't make us feel bad about needing help!

I'm so thankful that He generously helps me no matter how many times I ask. I'm the parent of three teenage and young adult daughters - I have to ask for help all the time!

Isn't it wonderful how God is never condemning when we truly ask from the heart? I love it! Happy TT to you!

I am so thankful that all we have to do is ask for wisdom and God will liberally give it to us! That is a promise that I put to use often... I always am in need of Godly and skillful wisdom!

Blessings!
