Wisdom is Closer Than You Think – James 1:5

Wisdom is Closer Than You Think – James 1:5

I need wisdom. I don’t know about you. I need wisdom in my marriage, in my job, in my friendships, in so many areas of life. Life feels scary sometimes. Do you know the feeling?

When life gets scary what do you do? If you need to make a hard decision do you listen to your gut? Do you call a parent or a friend?

When life gets confusing and scary and I need wisdom I think of a small classroom in the back of the baptist church I grew up in. Mr. Marshal is still my favorite Bible teacher. I can picture him right now. I was probably around 8 or 9 when he taught my Sunday school class. He was a college professor who absolutely loved teaching middle school kids about the Bible on Sundays. I think what he said really stood out to me because he talked to us like we were college age kids.

He said one Sunday morning, “did you know you could ask God for wisdom? Just ask Him.” I’m not sure why that stuck out to me, but I have consistently asked for wisdom from God ever since Mr. Marshal taught on James 1:5.

So what is it? What situation do you need wisdom in? God gives wisdom generously — all you have to do is ask.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”

James 1:5

Hi, I’m Hannah Lynn

Here's a few things about me. I have 8 years of radio broadcasting experience. I left my job as a radio broadcasting host and engineer to start my own media company, Abundantly More Media, and finish my degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My hobbies include fashion, fashion, fashion, and crocheting.

Most importantly, I believe that God gives us life in abundance (John 10:10). I like to say that life with Jesus feels like I once was blind, but now I see in full color.

So, if you love fashion, desire to know more about your Creator, and want to learn about mental health, you are in the right place.
