IN JULY OF THIS 2020 YEAR, THE LORD GAVE ME A PROVERBS JOURNAL THAT ALLOWED ME TO READ A CHAPTER EACH DAY, AND THEN NOTE FROM THAT READING. BELOW WILL BE A LINK TO THE CHAPTER FOR EACH DAY, MY NOTES FOR THAT CHAPTER, AND SOME DAYS POETRY THAT HIS WORD INSPIRED ME TO WRITE AS WELL. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL AND STRENGTHENING JOURNEY.
THANKS GOD FOR THE MOMENTS! I LOVE YOU!
Proverbs, Chapter 10 (Click here to read for better understanding of the connection between the scripture and the notes they inspired below.)
Lord, this chapter of Proverbs is loaded with instruction from wisdom. So much of it can seem confusing and argumentative. How foolish to think our human minds can judge the wisdom of God of the universe. There is so much we do not understand with our limited knowledge and flawed experiences. Especially when we are in a constant need to call ourselves good, and are offended, even hurt to think of ourselves as evil, weak, or flawed. But until we can be honest with ourselves, we can’t begin to know wisdom. And we certainly have NO right to question You!
Thank You for trusting us with Your word, Your wisdom, Your instruction, despite our frail and flawed frame. Thank You for loving us enough to want us to have knowledge, wisdom, truth, understanding, instead of walking around with blinders on just to be some kind of super god. You are a Super and Powerful God… who loves, who saves, who forgives, who teaches, who actually suffers for Your subjects.
You allow Yourself to feel pain to save us from death. You allow Yourself to experience death to save us from eternal life in hell. You loved us too much to want heaven to be without us. You Love! And You love us! ❤
Thank You, Father! We love You too!
❤ I love You, Father God!
❤ I love You, Jesus!
❤ I love You, Holy Ghost!
Your word in Proverbs 10 inspired me to write this poem, Lord. It is called A God Who Loves Me… because that is Who You are… and what You do!
A God Who Loves Me! ❤
A God who loves me, despite how I can be.
Who gave me wisdom to help me see.
Who sent instruction to rescue me,
To save me from lies that only deceive.
A God who loves me despite my lack.
He’s willing to give, so I can give back.
He knows my nature, and still He gives.
He tasted of death so that I could live.
A God who loves me, and lets me love Him back.
How grateful I am for that fact.
