Blessings of Wisdom, Good Judgment, Knowledge, Discernment, Common Sense, Success, Insight and Strength

…wisdom is far more valuable than rubies.

Nothing you desire can compare with it.

“I, Wisdom, live together with good judgment.

I know where to discover knowledge and discernment.

Common sense and success belong to me.

Insight and strength are mine.”

If you need wisdom,

ask our generous God,

and he will give it to you.

He will not rebuke you for asking. 

Proverbs 8:11-12, 14James 1:5

(Grand Teton National Park)

Blessings of The One Who Spoke It All Into Being

Praise the LORD!

Praise the LORD from the heavens!

Praise him from the skies!

Praise him, all his angels!

Praise him, all the armies of heaven!

Praise him, sun and moon!

Praise him, all you twinkling stars!

Praise him, skies above!

Praise him, vapors high above the clouds!

Let every created thing give praise to the LORD

for he issued his command, and they came into being.

Psalm 148:1-5

(Dead Sea, Israel)

Blessings of The One Who Protects In The Dark

I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

If I ride the winds of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

I could ask the darkness to hide me

and the light around me to become night—

but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.

To you the night shines as bright as day.

Darkness and light are the same to you.

Psalm 139:7-12

(Snake River, Grand Tetons National Park)
