Transforming Together: Authentic Spiritual Mentoring

Time

Books are written about it; seminars are attended to maximize it: TIME.

A gift from God to humans.

The Living Word says "Teach us to number our days, to apply our hearts to wisdom." in Psalm 90:12

You see, to grow old is not an option; it happens to all living beings.  It is part of the process of life, of growing, of aging.

However, to grow WISE IS an option!!

Now, THAT'S something to think about!!

There is nothing quite as sad as to see a person with age still coping with life the same way they did when young.  The body grew older but the person did not grow wiser.  Jesus offers us an option: To APPLY OUR HEARTS TO WISDOM.

What does that mean?

It means that we are in the Living Word daily.
It means that we are asking the Holy Spirit to teach us Truth.
It means that we live out the Living Word.
It means that we grow in Him!
We BECOME wise.

A choice.

How about you?  Is it about TIME that you apply YOUR  heart to wisdom?
Jesus invites you to do so.

Applying my heart,  Ele

Hi, Ele, your thoughts and words touched my heart. My heart longs to be wise in the ways of God, yet I know I always fall short. The cry of my heart each morning is for God to help me be sensitive to His heart, mind, will, voice, Spirit, and Word. I can only come to Him and beg Him for this because of His grace and mercy. Oh, I'm so thankful for His grace and mercy! Thanks for your encouraging words and reminders.

Ladies, both comments are "timely", no pun intended! Linda, your words remind us of Jesus' self-description, "Full of GRACE and TRUTH." Truth, without grace is harsh and condemning. Grace without Truth is soft and bending. The combination is....well.....Jesus! How HE desires us to FOLLOW AFTER HIM ALONE!!
Kris, yes, God IS telling us something. Oh that we listen and heed!!
Thank you to the two of you.
Growing w/ you.....
