The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.
Fools despise wisdom and discipline.”
(Red Spotted Purple Butterfly and Blueberry blossoms / Julie Cook / 2016)
What is your motivation?
Your self help…
Your reason to continue…
When you are lost, do you seek…
Perhaps you pray…
When stripped away of everything…
When all that made you…you….is abruptly taken away
When you stand alone, vulnerable and lost…
What propels you forward?
Or is it a yearning for something…
Someone greater than yourself…?
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all;
he protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.
