As I was doing a simple word study on wisdom in scripture I wrote Haikus to pull together my thoughts. I was inspired by my daughters poetry skills.

Discern
I request wisdom
The mind, the heart, the resolve
Received not achieved

Joy
Wisdom and sorrow
Bedfellows that never sleep
Mourning and waiting

Birthed
In awe and wonder
The beginning of wisdom
Quiet trembling

Vulnerable
Knowledge leads to pride
Wisdom needs humility
Falling on my knees

Greatness
Greater than folly
Weapons of war and pleasures
Invaluable

Satisfies
Like a bubbling brook
Soothing to heart and soul
Wisdom shines the face

Deficient
With all the wisdom
Still trapped in a circle
And going no where

Heart
Questions from sorrow
Answer not with answers
Sit, walk and listen

Open hands
Do not lift it up
Or else wisdom will decay
Credit goes elsewhere

Received
Wisdom is given
with emotional content
Mourning, rejoicing

Wisdom is given
volitional cognition
act on your knowledge

Wisdom is given
intuitive awareness
feel, choose, think, sense God

Undiscernable
Wisdom Unknowing
analysis paralysis
Embrace Mystery
