VerseD: Proverbs 2:8

[The Lord is] guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.
Proverbs 2:8, ESV

God takes care of His people, watching over every move we make. Ultimately, He is guiding us to eternity with Him, taking care of our souls on our journey to Himself. Trust in God.

The best way to be narrow-minded: seek the wisdom of the narrow path, and get a head start by reading Proverbial Thought!

Jesus once said,

“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
Matthew 7:12-14, ESV

Will you join me in being narrow-minded?

narrow minded  

many who do not call Jesus Lord

call those who do narrow minded

what if they are absolutely right

what if we are actually blinded

i would not mind being narrow minded

my thoughts being focused ahead

i do not want to follow as others do

going after all thoughts entering their heads

i want to be narrow minded because

the path to destruction is broad

but the path that leads straight to God

is a path that is narrow and long

come be narrow minded with me

why waste time walking to destruction

the path may be harder and longer

but trust me

nothing beats eternity with the Son

Get reconnected with wisdom at Proverbial Thought.

You may have noticed that I missed a few posts in the last two weeks (since Mother’s Day). I had scheduled posts to finish out the semester a while ago, only updating the Mother’s Day video after it had been released. When the end of the semester came, I had so much going on with finals, preparing for some friends’ wedding, having another Graduate-level course from another school, and figuring out whether/how to accept an amazing job offer, that I chose to focus on all of those rather than updating. I can happily say that it is the first time in almost three and a half years that I have not posted anything! I think I can be forgiven for that!

Something else that is amazing is the poem that is for today. My education and the job offer (that truly go hand in hand) fits with this poem, for they are part of the same path that is making me a better teacher and better man of God.

I trust you will be blessed by this poem.

path of construction

 

many people take the wide road
a path that seems easy and fun
but what most fail to realize
is that it is the path to destruction

there is a better way to go
though it seems not for everyone
it is the straight and narrow path
which is a path of construction

this path may be harder
but it leads right to the Son
this path will tear down then build up
through many tribulations

our old lives are removed
to be replaced with new ones
that we might join the angels
in praise and jubilation
