it's something that i've been asking for lately. in particular, wisdom in my relationships. i want so desperately to be an encouragement to my friends. to show them my love, and Christ's love. thats what i've been journaling about so profusely.
and it's funny, because i've been writing about it so much but rarely doing anything about it.

so today, when i was reading through cryn's blog (which is so uplifting. one of my favorite things. she is just so wonderful. go read her blog!), i almost missed this chapter that was so incredibly neccessary. let me share it with you:

My son, if you receive my word,
And treasure my commands within you,
So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
Yes, if you cry out for discernment ,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the LORD
And find the knowledge of God.
For the LORD gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
He guards the paths of justice,
And preserves the way of His saints.
Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
Equity and every good path.
When wisdom enters your heart,
And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
Discretion will preserve you;
Understanding will keep you, [...]
Proverbs 2:1-11
