Sometimes we search all over the world for a proverb or saying that speaks uniquely to our own heart when that ‘word’ may’ve been locked inside us from the beginning – waiting only on us to seek it.
Ever thought of converting what God’s saying to you by forming a short, meaningful proverb? Perhaps what’s spoken to our heart of hearts cannot be limited to one proverb, saying, acronym or mantra. And perhaps they’ll change over time.
But we try. This thing sets us apart as uniquely HIS, in the motioning of time and space—this reality we know as life.
Maybe we can believe that God has locked something deeply into all our hearts—and like Wisdom, which is a never-ending, ever-fruitful search—we’re blessed to take up the cudgels and ‘go on in’.
Why would we fear? There is nothing bad at the end of such a search; only good.
Forming our own proverbs and meaningful philosophies—so long as they’re not opposed to God or biblical teaching—can only enhance our sense of meaning regarding how we’re to live life.
