Embracing the world with positive creativity since Sept 2007.
In my book, "Living with Victory After Past Mistakes" I use acronyms to express my thoughts. So today I will share one on Wisdom.
What is Wisdom?
Definition: "Being wise; knowledge and good judgment based on experience."
Wisdom comes with experience. The longer we live the more experiences we obtain. We should learn from our mistakes
(W. I. S. D. O. M.) Will I Stop Doing Old Mistakes
Wisdom should stop us from repeating old mistakes. Yes, "We learn from our mistakes." But do we really learn? Some people find themselves right back doing the same mistakes. Having wisdom should make us grow and flourish. We shouldn't dry up and wither away. Learn the lessons from your mistakes. They will make you wiser.
I was speaking with my friend, D'Clarence, the other day about wisdom and he told me, Yea, cut the word down the middle and you have half wise and half dumb. Have you learned from your mistakes? Are you repeating the same mistakes over and over? What does wisdom mean to you? Well, in my book I speak on the mistakes that I have made in my life through poetry as well so I will also share a poem that expresses my lack of wisdom.
Tears through the Experiences
Wisdom, I have none.
My soul cries for wisdom.
I don't have a clue in my bones.
I need wisdom because I am confused.
I allowed my body to be misused.
I laid and played with the ungodly man,
Why? I didn't understand.
How many times must I go through
these storms before I learn my lesson?
How many times do I have to get knocked down
before I realize that God, not man, is my real blessor?
Dealing with people makes me frown,
But serving Jesus places me
in glory with a crown.
Oh God! I need Your wisdom.
I need to make the right decisions,
So I can see Your kingdom.
I read my Bible because I know
The Holy Spirit will show me a Word,
And I listen to my pastor because I know
From God he has heard!
For God tells him what he should tell me.
God's wisdom is all I need,
Help me God to be all that I can be.
From my trials and tribulations I grow
Remembering how Jesus gave His life
For me a long time ago.
I will receive all my blessings,
Because of all the lessons I've learned.
I will receive all that my heart yearns
For pressing onward to my divine goal,
Wisdom will no longer be absent from my soul.
