This is the first official week of summer vacation at our home. I am blessed to work part time, so I have two days a week off. Today was the first day off and it has began wonderfully! I woke up early to have some time to myself. As I was reading the Bible in Proverbs, I came across these verses: "How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?...Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you." Proverbs 1:22,23 I looked deeper for an explanation in the study Bible and the word simple here means - naive, young people who have not yet made up their minds about life or the direction they will take. Recently graduation has taken place and how many young people are floundering around, seeking for direction? In the following portion of these verses, "wisdom" is speaking and the promise is for wisdom to be known to those who seek for it.
Our oldest son will be a senior next year and within a few years, important choices for his life will be made, college, career etc. which will affect him for years. This is not a time for floundering, but to strive purposefully in God's direction. As a mother, it is important to let him make these choices on his own, not make them for him. But what a blessing it is to lean on God's Word and pray for him to let wisdom be evident in his heart and be clear to him in all he does.
After my quiet time and coffee, I wandered to look outside and saw these guys grazing nearby. It looked like a way to capture this glorious summer morning!
May your day be blessed and may you walk in God's wisdom in all that you do!
