Not Sure I Like Being Wise

This morning when I woke up I read Proverbs 2 as planned. However I had no idea it was about wisdom prior to reading it this morning (especially vs. 7-12 kids bible spoke this plainly.)  You see, before I went to bed late last night I wrote about being unsure about being wise.

I know what I meant; that making the right choices every day can be boring at times. Keeping my mouth quiet is sometimes unrewarding. Knowing the truth and seeing others make the wrong decision and not being able to do anything about it, is frustrating. It would be so much easier to just follow along, obey the boss who is doing the wrong thing and not care about what's right. That would be much easier. But it would be wrong. I have a big problem with that; so I have been taking the route of silence, while doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. This is what I call being wise. But it separates me from them. I know that's a good thing, but it is awkward at times. Even so, I would rather be alone with God then in a crowd of those against God.

"Lord, please make this obedience more of a blessing to me. Please help me see the positives of choosing right. I love you Lord. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen"

I wrote that immediately after reading the scripture this morning.  I'm only just now posting it because I've been going non-stop since then. I was shocked that hours after I wrote that poem about being wise, the message was about wisdom.  Yes, I have new thoughts about it, but I don't have time to talk about it.  Just sharing the journey. I am so curious what tomorrow morning will reveal.  No peaking!  I'm going to bed thinking about today. Gonna read vs.7-12 one more time first. Then sleep on it. Goodnight.
