Wisdom–a civilizer of the whole world–Your calling, destiny and role!

IMG_2184

When God created the world, painted pinks and blues in sunsets, designed the forests, the peacocks and zebras, Wisdom, always personified as a woman in Proverbs, was delighting, dancing, crafting at his side and standing as a partner in bringing beauty into the world. Join me for a short video about your design and inheritance as a woman who brings life, beauty, goodness, truth, and inspiration to a world that is longing to learn about all that is excellent.

My friends, as I was recording, my computer died. I hope you will enjoy this video–be inspired and live into your beautiful design in your own arena.

The end of the video should be, “Because from the beginning, you were created by God to bring all that is good, true and beautiful into the world through your life, your work and your love. God said this about Wisdom, the woman crafted to exhibit wisdom throughout the world:

“The Lord formed me from the beginning,
before he created anything else.
23 I was appointed in ages past,
at the very first, before the earth began.
24 I was born before the oceans were created,
before the springs bubbled forth their waters.
25 Before the mountains were formed,
before the hills, I was born—
26 before he had made the earth and fields
and the first handfuls of soil.
27 I was there when he established the heavens,
when he drew the horizon on the oceans.
28 I was there when he set the clouds above,
when he established springs deep in the earth.
29 I was there when he set the limits of the seas,
so they would not spread beyond their boundaries.
And when he marked off the earth’s foundations,
30     I was the architect at his side.
I was his constant delight,
rejoicing always in his presence.
31 And how happy I was with the world he created;
how I rejoiced.

Proverbs 8: 22-31

    Thanks for your post. It sounded just like the chapter on Lady Wisdom in “The Five Aspects of Woman” ! I don’t know if you know that course, but I think it would be a wonderful ressource to share with your readers.

    Sally, thank you so much for this. It’s affirming and uplifting to know I am acting as God designed me when I care for my family!

    Stopping school at 3pm to have tea with my soon-to-be 18 year old daughter. We set out the pretty teapot with its attendant tea cozy and we choose from our small array of tea cups. We each have our special creamer and sugar; we usually use hers! We both love a rich Yorkshire brew and we either have savories or sweets, sometimes displayed on our tiered tray. We have a lovely, very large window to look out upon the snowy backyard and sometimes we read a Louisa May Alcott book. Miss Alcott had such a deep understanding regarding the way in which young people think and act and we have been blessed by the wisdom she conveys via her writing. Hannahsarah’s favorite title is, “An Old Fashioned Girl”. My mother had the natural gift of beauty so we are also gifted by her beautiful framed prints she left behind which surround us on the walls.
