the secret to finding joy

I’m looking for direction
I’m waiting at the doorway
I’m listening for your voice
The voice of wisdom
 
Where can I find this wisdom
It is a search each must take
Your life will depend on it
Decide what you want
 
I know I desire to live
Love and joy at the center
Where relationships flourish
I know what I want
 
Since I made the decision
To look outside my feelings
Get input from wiser souls
My life is enriched
 
Want only good for others
Is the first piece of advice
Start with being kind to self
Decide you’re worth it
 
There is a book of wisdom
Penned three thousand years ago
It’s called the book of Proverbs
I read it daily

    Wow, you are quite poetic! I love the fact that you are writing for God’s glory… I like these scriptures 🙂 I also like your username: your story matters to Him… because it truly does!

  2. Great comment from Lakia. As always, I love the content, but today in particular I like the rhythm of the piece.
