~ A dear friend told me that long ago. Whether I can’t seem to hear God’s voice; if I am confused and unable to understand right now; when I have fallen quiet myself in my friendship with Jesus, feeling lost; and those times when I can’t seem to straighten myself out or I simply feel as if I am in yet another rut in my life; I begin again with Proverbs.
Proverbs reminds me. Inspires and refreshes me. Proverbs is the Holy Bible’s book of wisdom. Each scripture and each chapter guide us but there are a few I find myself drawn especially to.
