Living Life To The Fullest By Embracing Chokmah Wisdom
(Divine Or Christ's Wisdom) As My Teacher.
The North Star of the Christian Faith:
"Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen to God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!”
Proverbs 3:5-7, Message Bible
The Late Poetic Preacher, Horatius Bonar
"Thy way, not mine oh Lord, however dark it be
Lead me by Thine own hand, choose out the path for me.
Smooth let it be or rough, it will be still the best,
Winding or straight, it leads right on towards Thy rest.
I dare not choose my lot, I would not if I might,
Choose Thou for me, my God, so shall I walk aright,
The kingdom that I seek is Thine, so let the way
That leads to it be Thine, else I must surely stray.
Take Thou my cup, and it with joy and sorrow fill,
As best to Thee may seen – choose Thou my good and ill.
Choose Thou for me my friends, my sickness or my health,
Choose Thou my cares for me, my poverty or wealth.
Not mine, not mine the choice in things of great or small,
Be Thou my guide, my strength, My wisdom and my ALL.”

Sure of your own wisdom.” (Prov. 3:5a; 7a, Living Bible)
- "In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you
and crown your efforts with success.” (Prov 3:6, Living Bible)
- Let the Lord be thy confidence and counsellor in life.

An Excerpt from A Letter of Wisdom
"Dear friend, guard clear thinking and common sense with your life;
Don't for a minute lose sight of them.
They'll keep your soul alive and well, they'll keep you fit and attractive.
You'll travel safety, you'll neither tire nor trip.
You'll take afternoon naps without worry,
You'll enjoy a good night sleep.
No need to panic over alarms or surprises,
Or predictions that doomsday's just around the corner,
Because God will be right there with you;
He'll keep you safe and sound.”
Proverbs 3:21-26, Message Bible
