The Result of A Night of Thought

I've been pondering a lot lately. I'm just going to make a running list of the questions and thoughts going through my head and I don't really expect any answers. I don't want to get in a theological debate right now, I just want an outlet and to maybe encourage others who might be asking the same questions by letting them know they aren't alone.

(time elapse)

I just wrote a bunch out. I just dumped into an empty post, and I'm feeling better. But sometimes it isn't wisest to just post what has come to your heart in the heat of the moment. Especially when you know your hormones are a bit whacked and you're emotional and its thunderstorming outside. So rather than list all those questions/ramblings right now, I'm going to share a few verses I've been pondering to give you some background on where I'm coming from. Maybe this and the post I might put up soon will help you understand me a bit better, or maybe they won't connect at all. The point of this blog is for me to share the breathings of my heart, and this is what's been going in and out lately:

Proverbs 16:1-3
We can gather our thoughts, but the LORD gives the right answer. People may be pure in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their motives. Commit your work to the LORD, and then your plans will succeed.

Proverbs 17:9
Disregarding another person's faults preserves love; telling about them separates close friends.

Proverbs 17:22
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person's strength.

Proverbs 17: 24
Sensible people keep their eyes glued on wisdom, but a fool's eyes wander to the ends of the earth.

Proverbs 19:3
People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the LORD.

Proverbs 19:20-21
Get all the advice and instruction you can, and be wise the rest of your life. You can make many plans, but the LORD's purpose will prevail.

Proverbs 15:15
For the poor, every day brings trouble; for the happy heart, life is a continual feast.


I've got a lot of commentary on these verses, but I think for today I'm going to leave it at this.
