Read Proverbs 8
God offers us His wisdom. It transcends the universe and those who live by it it are truly blessed. Listen to my paraphrase of Proverbs 8:27-31.
I was there when He made the heavens and rounded out the planet in the palm of His hands. I was there when He shaped the oceans and told them how to flow. I was right there beside Him when designed the earth, like His head engineer. He was thrilled with me and I loved Him and the world He made and the people He created.
And also verse 32:
So now listen to me children: you will be truly blessed if you live out my principles.
So many people chase an elusive happiness. But when we live by God's wisdom, we find something even better--blessedness.
"Lord of Heaven and Earth, Creator of the universe and all that exists, help me to seek wisdom above all else and live by her principles every day and thus find blessing that goes so far beyond happiness. Amen."

Proverbs Day 8
I'm a pastor, dad, husband, and child of God. I'm broken, but blessed. The cracks are where the Light shines through. My mission is to help people grow closer to God with every breath and step I take. I gave my life to Christ at an early age and have grown closer through the years, spurred on by the study of the Bible, my church family, and the Chrysalis and Walk to Emmaus Communities. I accepted the call to full -time ministry as a pastor in 1999 and have served 4 different churches in Georgia. Music, preaching, and teaching are the heart of my ministry. Outside of the pulpit, I enjoy many hobbies that help me blow off steam. These include martial arts, woodworking, blacksmithing, gardening, cooking, and being creative. I'm a jack of all trades and a master of none. My philosophy is use what you have, do it yourself if you can, learn something in the process, and have lots of fun. This blog is a place to share it all with you.
