Welcome to Day 1966 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

Be Still – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1965 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote and some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. So we are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Proverbs 16:16  How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!    If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget: Today’s quote is from Jacob Braude, and it is: Behave like a duck — keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like crazy underneath.

Be Still

One sign of maturity is to remain calm when you are in the midst of the storms of life. The wind may buffet you, and the rain may soak you, but like the duck in our quote today, maturity will allow it to roll off your back more quickly. Your mind may be racing and your stomach in jitters, but you can filter it enough where you handle what is within your control, and let God give you wisdom on managing the remainder within His time and through His provisions. Of course, God expects us to do what we can with the abilities He has given to us, but for everything else, we need to be in prayer that He will guide our steps. We need to pray, ‘be still my soul,’ and be willing to trust God and have the faith to know that He is ultimately in control of everything. God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! Interlude A river brings joy to the city of our God, the sacred home of the Most High. God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed. From the very break of day, God will protect it. The nations are in chaos, and their kingdoms crumble! God’s voice thunders, and the earth melts! The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress. Interlude Come, see the glorious works of the Lord: See how he brings destruction upon the world. He causes wars to end throughout the earth. He breaks the bow and snaps the spear; he burns the shields with fire. “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress.  As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.’

Today’s quote is from Jacob Braude, and it is: Behave like a duck — keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like crazy underneath.

Be Still

The wind may buffet you, and the rain may soak you, but like the duck in our quote today, maturity will allow it to roll off your back more quickly. Your mind may be racing and your stomach in jitters, but you can filter it enough where you handle what is within your control, and let God give you wisdom on managing the remainder within His time and through His provisions.

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,

always ready to help in times of trouble.

So we will not fear when earthquakes come

and the mountains crumble into the sea.

Let the oceans roar and foam.

Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! Interlude

A river brings joy to the city of our God,

the sacred home of the Most High.

God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed.

From the very break of day, God will protect it.

The nations are in chaos,

and their kingdoms crumble!

God’s voice thunders,

and the earth melts!

The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us;

the God of Israel is our fortress. Interlude

Come, see the glorious works of the Lord:

See how he brings destruction upon the world.

He causes wars to end throughout the earth.

He breaks the bow and snaps the spear;

he burns the shields with fire.

“Be still, and know that I am God!

I will be honored by every nation.

I will be honored throughout the world.”

The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us;

the God of Israel is our fortress.
