5 Reasons Wisdom Rules







Through the stress and business of daily life, and trying to maintain, I often find myself led back to the same question: What's It All About? What's that truly satisfying thing in life that has the power to make us truly happy?...and even encourage or motivate us to keep going when all hell is breaking loose?!

As multiple worries, anxieties, and to-do's weighed down on my motivation, I got my answer: Wisdom is the key! Worry and Stress doesn't belong to me. Emotions like these are tools of the devil. When the worry that usually loomed around my thoughts showed up this morning I got one command, and it held a power that was too good not to tweet:

As more revelation came so did a blog title. Wisdom is so powerful and so worthy nothing can touch it. When we put down worry and pick up wisdom, we reap the benefits:



Wisdom holds Life and Honor...Literally
Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. (Proverbs 3:16) Wisdom makes life easier by helping us to stress less and providing enlightenment. Less stress equals longer life, medical reports will gladly back that up. Wisdom also holds wealth and honor, in modern terms that's fortune and fame.Not the fame that causes you to be exploited and ridiculed, but the one that causes favor and admiration. Worry has no results, but negative ones. *"Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" -NO!  wisdom on the other hand, holds Long life and Honor.


You Better Ask "Solomon"
Solomon chose wisdom over everything. 2 Chronicles 1:7-12 Because the King chose wisdom, God blessed him abundantly with wisdom and everything else he didn't ask for including riches, wealth, and honor. Wisdom rejoices in truth, it is the empowerment serum for the soul. It made Solomon's reign better and If you read properly above,as a bonus he received the things that wisdom itself possesses. Wisdom is more valuable than anything you're clamoring to possess.

She Can Upgrade You
Because wisdom rejoices in truth, it helps eliminate unnecessary drama. The word says put wisdom first and you'll be promoted. A wise person is a blessed person. Wisdom is the key to fulfillment on so many levels. Wisdom can upgrade us better than anyone can claim or sing. Scripture says wisdom, Preserves us, keeps us, promotes us, honors us, gives us grace, and delivers a crown of glory and that's only the half...of a scripture. We can do more with wisdom than we can ever do without it.

Wisdom Satisfies
The snickers bar isn't what you're hungry for. We can search for validation and try to fill our emptiness  with temporary fixes all we want, but it will never be enough. Even the best bread can't compare to wisdom: "Why spend money on what is not food, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare." Wisdom is sweeter than the honey on a honeycomb. *"I have not departed from your laws,for you yourself have taught me.How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts;therefore I hate every wrong path." Hungry? why wait! Start digging into your word!


Jesus said it Best
There's a difference between wisdom and standard knowledge. Wisdom is more enriching. in Matthew 6, Jesus instructed seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. The kingdom of God is filled with wisdom, and wisdom is filled with everything essential. Worrying about absolutely anything is useless. Wisdom is the antithesis of worry, and it's the actual cure. In the end, It doesn't matter if I have it "All Together" or even if everything looks right, with wisdom on my side I cant go wrong!

There's no need to worry when you walk in purpose, the word says God will supply your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus. Follow your purpose passionately and leave the rest to God.

5 Ways God is Always On Your Side

by April D. Byrd

After seeing the film God's Not Dead for the second time, I started reminiscing on all the quotes the movie included and the fact that it was based off of a debate. It put God's word (religion in a sense) and science (data) up against each other to compete together for God's existence.  The film was based on debate, but a quote by Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. could have brought both parties to harmony quickly. Dr. King wisely stated that:


“Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals.” 
Trust God's word over Everything!

We all have our parts to play in the world. Everything happens for a reason,  even negativity has it's specific cause in our lives. Sometimes when we face opposition or even consider someone is being "negative" toward us. We draw back or we want to get defensive. Ever heard of the saying "Let Your Hater's Be Your Motivators". Criticism and information is made to sharpen us. Even if someone is simply putting you down, we have the liberty to trust God's word over that. You can even bless them with some facts and information of your own. Fight icy cold attitudes with the fire of the word of God. Jesus did it on the mountain when he was tempted and taunted by the enemy.*  No matter the situation everything works together for our good and God is always on our side, it takes wisdom and loving God to know this. The power we have is accurately Knowing and trusting God's word itself. If any other word doesn't line up fully, it's irrelevant. God's word is always accurate, it's fact and the fact is God loves us, protects us and always wants the best for us. According to scripture God is for us, and if God is for us nothing can come against us.*


  • All things work together for Good to them that love God and are called according to His Purpose. (Romans 8:28)

  • No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, says the LORD. (Isaiah 54:17)

  • As Iron Sharpens Iron, so one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17)

  • As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9)



  • As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. (Psalm 18:30) 


God's way is perfect and God's way perfects us...if we let it. God knows the plans He has for us higher than our trouble and higher than we can see. What anyone else says or observes doesn't matter as much as what God says, but it's good to make sure it lines up. It's up to us to KNOW what He say's. When we Trust God and follow His way things will only work out for our good!

God's Not Dead Breaks Box Office Records

check out #BOLDJournal on Instagram

Hollywood is rolling out a lot of faith-based films, but one of them is a stand out! USA Today noted that God's Not Dead is a box office winner and Pure Flix announced  that their film GOD’S NOT DEAD opened with a stellar per screen average of nearly $12,000 and ranked #4 of all movies released the weekend ending March 23, 2014. Amid a flood of other faith-based movies, GOD’S NOT DEAD’s per screen average is an all-time high for wide release Christian films.


Only showing on 780 screens in its debut weekend among many other releases on over 3,000 screens, GOD’S NOT DEAD outperformed virtually all movies on a per screen average basis and was sold out in many locations prompting theaters to add additional show times and larger rooms. Pure Flix and Freestyle Releasing are adding hundreds of runs for the second week, bringing the total number of theaters to approximately 1,000.

Official Updated Press Release from PRNewswire
“Demand for GOD’S NOT DEAD in the faith-based community has been significant because the message is culturally relevant to millions of Americans,” said David A.R. White, Managing Partner of Pure Flix and an actor in the film playing Reverend Dave. “As Variety noted this weekend, GOD’S NOT DEAD is providing content for a much underserved audience and Pure Flix exists to help fill that void.”

Termed the “biggest surprise” of the weekend by Entertainment Weekly and the “biggest shocker” of the weekend by Variety, GOD’S NOT DEAD’s success did not surprise Pure Flix.

“We’ve seen for months a huge interest among consumers in GOD’S NOT DEAD, evidenced by our massive social media fan base which has over 1 million followers on Facebook,” said Michael Scott, Managing Partner of Pure Flix. “Our grassroots marketing efforts encompassing the church, social media, events and publicity were laser focused on our core market. That focus, coupled with the overt faith-based message of this film, contributed to its success.”

Pure Flix began with the end in mind. “We developed the script then commissioned a book by the same title with the arguments presented in the movie to debut a year ahead of the film. We felt the Newsboys’ popular song ‘God’s Not Dead’ was the perfect title and incorporated them as well as Willie and Korie Robertson of Duck Commander and fan favorite Kevin Sorbo (HERCULES, SOUL SURFER) into the script,” said Russell Wolfe, Managing Partner of Pure Flix. “Our team worked hard to activate the faith- based audience and we poured everything we had into making GOD’S NOT DEAD a film the audience could rally around. We’re thrilled to see how a lot of prayer and hard work are affecting lives around the nation.”
