“The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom, and their tongues speak what is just”
There have been many memories since those stated in part one of this article. I can’t share them all here, as it would take a chunk of your time to read. I will however, share some precious moments that continues to bear fruit in my life today, starting with what I’d like to call her wisdom.
Wisdom: During my placement year at university, I stayed with aunt Grace for a while. I got a card from a friend for my birthday and a £20 note was included. My aunt looked at the words in the card and said, “That young man is in love with you.” Having a relationship of that nature was very far from my mind. I took no note of it. Four years later that young man called me up, after a year’s gap in corresponding with each other.
I had just opened the front door to mum’s. I hadn’t a chance to check if she was home, let alone greet her, but I soon heard in the background, “Stop screaming! You’ll deafen the person on the phone!” Yes, my mother was home witnessing prophesy being fulfilled.
I remembered standing in the corridor in total shock as our friendship reconnected. I didn’t think I would hear from him again, having lost contact for so long. The conversation in the corridor was in the way of making plans to go to the cinema the following day. Four months from that night He asked me to marry him and I said, “Yes.” How could aunt Grace tell just by few words in a card, that the person who wrote those words was in love with me? Only by the wisdom of God! Had God not revealed that to her, I may not have recognised my blessing and a blessing it is indeed!
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10, NIV).
