I started reading Jewels of Wisdom mid-March of 2020. It was given to my beloved spouse, Marlene, by our daughter Jacqueline of Olympia, Washington 3 years previous.
Marlene and I were married 60 years and 10 days. She went to be with the Lord May 27, 2018. The loss of Marlene was and is still devastating for me. For over 40 years, we were born again believers together. For many years, we benefited from anointed teaching but a day came when all the teaching couldn’t take the pain away because of the loss of her presence and partnership in my life.
I still have her ashes. I can’t give her up. Since I started reading Jewels of Wisdom, I have not missed a day reading His message to me. I have not read past the date on the page, but I have read from page one, or January 1, to the present date twice already and have started a third time.
Once I started reading this devotional daily, within a short period of time, I noticed I was feeling more relaxed. I started focusing on what was written, meditating on what was being said, how it was being said, and who it was directed to— Me.
I found in Jewels of Wisdom what I needed. My outlook completely changed for myself, and towards others, by knowing just how much He loves us. I feel stronger and stronger with my walk with the Lord. God is the only One Who can give you Words of Life. If you want to be encouraged, you have to go to God’s Word. His Word settles things in your heart in ways that human words never can. His handwriting, in this book, gives you Promises for Life.
To know that you have a supernatural Helper and that you are never alone is a great truth. Its daily reading positions me to know who I am and inspires me to help someone else. Everything that you can learn in the world is nothing compared to what you know with God. You don’t need to be a scholar to share God’s love with someone.
By using this daily devotional, I have come to one conclusion. Just as the bible was written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, so was Jewels of Wisdom. The words of wisdom in this daily devotional brings to life the hidden depth of scripture.It brings to life what God intended for believers to experience. These words of wisdom give direction (Matthew 6:33). They give revelation and promise (Mathew 16:13-19). These words of wisdom give you a commission to go into all the world (Mathew 28:18-20). These words of wisdom promise us astonishing signs from the Lord for all who believe (Mark 16:15-18). These words of wisdom give you a personal comforter and teacher in the Holy Spirit (John 14:15-16-26).
