    With the heart man can believe unto righteousness.For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. We must trust in the Lord with all our hearts, believing he is able and wise to do what is best.My son, forget not my law but let thine heart keep my commandments:Trust in the LORD with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    Beneath the heart is a hidden meaning, meaning of words or a truth you believe in, beyond the faith is a hidden yonder , too many lives wasted as people sit and ponder, .... above the faith is the power of hand , spreading the seeds of a flower we call understand , understand me now as i spread thy word ... how many pens do you share with a blank open black book

    proverbs chapter 3 is a chapter that helps me gain insight into the word of God .Whenever i needwisdom, or understanding i learn to trust in the Lord rather than leaning on my own understanding. I have learned to acknowledge God instead of myself knowing that he is the one who will direct my path and that i can know i wont be disappointed as long as i trust him and not myself.

  • Ivy Johnson
    No Precious Jewels or Earthly Treasures are worthy to be Compared with True WISDOM: Whether the concerns of Time or Eternity be Consudered: We must make Wisdom our Business: We must Venture all in it: And be willing to part with all for it: This WISDOM is the LORD JESUS CHRIST: AND HIS SALVATION: SOUGHT AND OBTAINED: BY FAITH AND PRAYER:
    CHRIST IS THAT WISDOM: BY WHOM THE WORLDS WERE MADE: AMEN!
