BEGINNING OF UNDERSTANDING

Job 28:28 “The fear of the Lord – that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.”

ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

The hope of every human mind is to gain wisdom,

We labor through our lives in search of it,

We imagine that it will come from learning,

From experience,

From years of practice,

But it doesn’t,

When we reach the end of our days,

We see,

We know,

We have learned,

That wisdom is like the air we breathe,

Like the birth of a child,

Like the first blooms of spring,

Wisdom is a gift,

From God,

To His children,

A precious commodity that only comes,

Through understanding.

Through trial,

Through adversity,

From a fear of God,

Not a fear that makes us tremble,

But one that instills an awe within us,

That fills us with inspiration,

Encouragement,

Hope,

That lifts us up,

To touch the face of,

Our Creator,

With confidence,

That He will accept us as we are,

His own precious creation.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Good mornin Kathy.
    I can tell you that the fear of the Lord’s wrath brought me to Him for justification.

    And I can also tell you for sure that now that I’m his son, I’m a holy saint who’s the righteousness of God.

    How bout you?

      I am secure in the knowledge that my sainthood is assured in heaven. I need not fear death, because Jesus has overcome death for me. I am saved because of him alone – not by my own merit.
