Daily Devotional

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting our photography page. I try to start everyday with time with our lord and that is in the book of Proverbs, there is one for everyday of the month and if it's 31 days pick a favorite and read it twice. So this is the first of the month, Max Lucado has an excellent devotional bible and I want to share the devotional for this day with you, it is by Charles Swindoll "Living on the Ragged Edge" (credit where credit is due!!!!)

" I've thought about what the Scriptures are teaching on Wisdom and I've come up with this: Wisdom is the God-given ability to see life with rare objectivity and to handle life with rare stability.

When we operate in the sphere of the wisdom of God, when it is at work in our mind and in our life, we look at life through the lenses of perception, and we respond to it in calm confidence. There's a remarkable absence of fear. We are not seized with panic. We can either lose our jobs or we can be promoted in our work , and neither will derail us. Why? Because we see it with God given objectivity. And we handle it in His wisdom.

We can dip into an unexpected valley or we can soar to the pinnacle of prosperity, and we can cope with both extremes. His wisdom provides us the necessary objectivity and stability. That's the way life is when it is lived in the palm of his hand. This is not some dreamland fantasy. It is reality. It is the ability to live above the drag of human opinion and horizontal perspective. It is what happens within us when wisdom goes to work." by Charles Swindoll

This just spoke to me this morning and I felt urged to share it with who ever wonders across our page. Not sure if this will be a daily thing or not as some of his daily devotionals are 2 ~ 3 times the length of this. If you are interested they can be found in the "The Devotional Bible, Max Lucado-General Edition" I have found it an excellent source of practical God based advice.

Thanks for stopping by. Wilber Jeffcoat
