James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom,you should as God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
Asking for wisdom is not an act of helplessness or weakness, but a sign of strength and the wisest thing we can do.
“Get wisdom, get understanding;
do not forget my words or turn away from them.
6 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;
love her, and she will watch over you.
7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.
Though it cost all you have,get understanding.”
What we can learn and use from these verses is that it is not only OK to ask, but it is in our best interest. Asking for and gaining wisdom is beneficial for all and will continue grow in us which will reflect all aspects of our lives from how we are at work, to raising our children and becoming better human beings.
Another part of wisdom, is being selective of who we choose to hang around with.
A great quote I just read,
“Sometimes you have to move on without certain people. If they’re meant to be in your life, they’ll catch up.”
This doesn’t mean just ditch those you grew up with or those hang out with. Love them. Respect them, and like it says, they’ll catch up. It’s not easy, nothing is and that’s why life is a journey and that is when we need to look for wisdom.
What does make the transition a little more comfortable are the groups like Team Uppercut and the many other groups. We sometimes have to leave that comfort zone and get a little uncomfortable from time to time for change to happen, to fill a void we might be need to be filled. Physical activity is a great way to start. A healthy body and mindset combined with wisdom in a group effort, we all can grow stronger and make us unbreakable.
Look into the areas of your life and seek wisdom. Ask God to provide the wisdom for He will not rebuke you for asking. Use that wisdom to develop good judgment, combine the two and put them into action.
