James 1:5 (NLT)

5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.


In a popular movie released in May of 2018, the main character, was a hopeless romantic. He spent much of the movie interested in a woman who was “not as she seemed.” His romantic nature seemed to blind him to reality.

In spite of this weakness, he gained many friends, good and bad along the way that help him and often complicated his life.

“LORD, please give me interpersonal wisdom. Give me a heart to love all people but also the discernment that is from you. I need wisdom.

Your Son saw my mess and chose to redeem a person like me.

Thank you for bailing me out of the messes I have invited into my life.

Give me your eyes, that I might see what I need to see and the heart to accept it….the strength to help others along their path. Help me to be consistent as you are, Lord……In Jesus’ Name, Amen!”
