Have you ever been struck by something profound? Some wise saying that really hit home with you? Recently, I’ve started compiling a list of these Words of Wisdom that can so easily be swept into the far recesses of my mind if I don’t visually keep them close at hand. Maybe that’s why the Lord said to write His words on the tablet of our hearts. (Proverbs 7: 3)
Some of the most wise sayings come straight from the wisest man of all time, King Solomon, who when the Lord granted him one request, asked for an understanding heart to govern his kingdom. When put into practice, these words of wisdom can transform a life.

This 10th one is very near to my heart. I’ve kept it close at hand for over thirty years while I pursued my dream of becoming a published author. I fought many discouragements along the way, but the Lord was faithful to see my dream to fruition. I am so very thankful for His love and mercy.
