A Damsel’s Discovery

God speaks through man to reach man because often times we are too stubborn and self- centered to hear His voice.

I used to do a Daily Positive on this blog and often times I would go to Google and just type in positivity. Most often times I would find a positive quote and recognize it from The Bible. The wording would be tweaked a little or the terminology a smidge different but the underlying wisdom was still there.

God’s Word is still full of wisdom. Unfortunately,  God is not always given credit for it.

Today I am going to find some wise quotes from Google and then I’m going to find that same thread of wisdom in The Bible. We are not wise of our own accord, God speaks through us to reach us and you’ll be amazed at how often “wise men” are simply regurgitating words already spoken by The Most High.
