Seek Godly Wisdom

I once worked for a man who had a lot of little sayings. He was no Confucius, but a lot of things had some wisdom from his life's experiences.

When I would fret over what something costs, or the amount of work that some project was about to entail, he would say, "it's just the cost of doing business".

When there was contention between employees, he would tell them "we're not playing the got-cha game".

Another, used when something was just not going to plan was "it is what it is".

He had a bunch of them, but you get the idea.

As I've grown more and more mature in my job, I catch myself saying his little sayings some times, and quiet honestly, they often help me deal with the situation at hand.

Scripture is packed full of wisdom too, and it's from God not man, and it always helps us navigate whatever we are going through, even if it is barely tolerable at times. But that help only comes when we know what scripture has to say! We are taught that God strengthens us by what we've been through up to this point, and we are going to gain more strength when the current crisis is over, better equipped for the next 'whatever'. But knowing what God has to say before things happen, then leaning on God in times of trouble and hardship is what He wants us to do, but that doesn't mean He can or will remove the problem, rather that He will bring us through it based on both our knowledge and our confident expectations in His abilities and not our own.

Prov 3:5 "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding."May be an image of text that says 'Trust WITH ALL YOUR HEART Lord ON YOUR OWN in the AND LEAN NOT UNDERSTANDING. PROVERBS 3:5'
