Sweet to your soul

Proverbs 22: 17-24:22

Some of the touching verses to my soul this morning were found in Proverbs 24:13-14
My child, eat honey, for it is good, and the honeycomb is sweet to the taste.  In the same way,
wisdom is sweet to your soul.  If you find it, you will have a bright future, and your hopes will not be cut short.

Hope is what gets me through each day and my hope is found in the LORD.  I am going to share with you today something that goes back quite a few years now to a time when my hope was gone and how the LORD provided the wisdom to sweeten my soul.

I've shared with those of you close to me that I was unable to have children.  I took the meds, I tried everything imaginable and it wasn't to be.  I was in total despair.  Many times I wondered why I was even here on this earth.  People would say things that would cut to the core about why aren't you having kids.  When are you going to give up the good life of travel and it being just you and Kenny and I would think do you even see the woman standing before you?  I was broken.  I felt less than I was suppose to be after all having babies is what women are suppose to do or so the world tells you.  I was sinking so deep in my despair that I went searching in God's Word and He began to speak to me through His Words.  He began to heal my broken heart, my broken body, and my broken mind!  I found my hope again and it was found in the LORD.

It's scary to me in our world today that everyone thinks the next purchase, the next new surgery, the next new man made law will change things.  These things will heal our problems or even the next politician or entertainer will provided the needed cure!  The only thing that heals us is the LORD.  God provides the hope and the future ~ YES HE PROVIDES OUR ETERNAL FUTURE!  Please don't let the world convince you that it is able to heal you.  It's short term.  I promise I tried some of the world cures and my heart, soul, and body were not healed until I turned to the LORD!

I pray that each of us will turn back to God and allow Him to provide the most beautiful hope!  He will provide the wisdom that is indeed pure sweetness!

Sweet blessings,

What a blessing it has been to see your journey through the years that has brought you to the woman that you are now. Before his death, my daddy regularly mentioned how proud he was of you--not only for coming through your desperation, but for blossoming into the amazing person that God intended you to be!! So blessed to have you as my friend.
