1-heart-on-fire[1]Psalm 90:12

Wisdom of Heart

Make us know the shortness of our life that we may gain wisdom of heart. 

Why do we seek wisdom?  Is it so that we might better control ourselves and others in order to number our days?  Is it so that we might keep ourselves safe from all disaster and above all turmoil?  Do we seek wisdom in order to better rely on ourselves and less on God?

God says: There really is nothing to fear.  When life is going well for you  and you want it to go on forever it is I who endow you with gifts.  When crises loom and your life feels over-long, I buoy you up and lift you above the fray.  I do not leave you to survive on your own although I know that this is how you feel.  Trust in me.  Believe in me.  Live in me.  I want to be with you always.  And I want to share with you the eternal wisdom of my heart.   

We want to be self-controlling and self-fulfilling.  We believe that we carry the weight of the world.  We spend our years searching for panacea and surety.  Yet God alone saves.  God alone is enough.
