Chapter-a-Day Job 12

I'm walkin'. "True wisdom and real power belong to God; from him we learn how to live, and also what to live for." Job 12:13 (MSG)

"There's more to life than this."

That was the thought that ran through my head as I lay in bed as a teenager. I was a good student. I was a good kid. There was this nagging emptiness inside. I looked at my hand and watched it move. I was a living being inside this body. I was a person with thoughts, feelings, passions, intentions and dreams, residing inside a body living in Iowa at this particular moment in time. What is this all about?

That was the thought that spurred me on my faith journey. I set out on the path to find some answers, and that is where Jesus found me. He invited me down this narrow way I've been walking ever since.

I have been educated. I have read what the most brilliant minds have written. I have heard some of the most eloquent people of our age with my own ears. I have met those who are considered powerful.

Yet, nothing compares to that which I've learned and experienced from simply walking with Jesus.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Job 12”

  1. 13-25 “True wisdom and real power belong to God;
    I am trying to be more disciplined about prayer. There are so many times that I think I have life handled. There are times when I think I am pretty wise. Yet, I want to constantly invite God into my decision making and planning. I want Him to share His wisdom with me so that I make decisions for good and not evil. God help me include you.
