Lack

It’s Friday once again and I’m linking with Five Minute Friday…

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

James 1:5

 

If I found myself in a college room with a crowd of physicists, I would be terribly lacking. Their words would be well over my head. Though Math and Science were not my strong points, it would still be a foreign language to me.

 

The same would be if I were in a garage full of auto mechanics. I could change a tire, add washer fluid, and that’s about all I could do. Press me and I could change the oil.

 

We all lack something in our lives. Not one of us was born knowing all we know now. Even if we strive for our whole life, we will always lack wisdom. Apparently, God thought we needed it because he continues to tell us we do, and he continues to give it generously.

 

He delights in our conversations. He delights in helping us to know him better.

Occasionally, we lack wisdom about making decisions. At times it’s as if we were in a fog and can’t find God at all. This is when faith goes deep. This is when we understand what fully trusting in God means.

 

My husband and I are in that foggy spot for several months. I may never learn any momentous lesson in all this, but I know that God will continue to give wisdom gladly.

 

How about you? Are you stressed over decisions? Pray, and as Emily P Freeman says in her new book—do the next right thing in love.
