"There are two moments in life. Those you miss and those you seize." That wisdom came from an unlikely source...a Hallmark movie! Wisdom handed down from one generation to the next about making wise choices. I'd like to believe that we get more wisdom the more we live life, but the truth is, at any given moment, we can miss out on a really important moment, and we can totally seize the wrong moment and find ourselves in a boatload of trouble.
For sure, the only way to know which moment is best missed and which moment should be embraced is to pray...every day!...for wisdom from God. After all, God knows the end from the beginning, and every page in between of our story. There is no one else more qualified to give us counsel, clarity, wisdom and discernment in every moment of our day than God!
"If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking." That is James 1:5 (NLT)
If you're wondering 'how do I get everything done in a day if I have to pray before I do anything?' Here's what I have learned about talking with God. When I keep an open dialogue with God throughout my day I will have a thought to reach out to someone and text or call them. Or I might be about to do something, go somewhere, speak to someone, and the Holy Spirit will give me just a tiny nudge or pause before I do it. More times than I can count He stepped in to help me avoid something damaging or lead me to step into something that turned out to be amazing.
For all the big moments in life...and the little ones...just ask Him. We already know that we need His wisdom and His promise to us is that He will generously give us the wisdom we need as often as we need it! Just ask!
