God is giving me


Using wisdom to avoid damaging attitudes, words and actions and to give insightful counsel

Prudence, or knowledge and prudence; that discernment which enables a person to judge critically of what is correct and proper, united with caution; nice discernment and judgment, directed by circumspection, and primarily regarding one's own conduct.
     A good man -- will guide his affairs with discretion. Ps. cxii.
     My son, keep sound wisdom and discretion. Prov. iii.
Webster's 1st ed., 1828

The Spirit gives me the ability to avoid words, actions, and attitudes which could result in undesirable consequences.

A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished. -- Proverbs 22:3

And we know that all things work together for good to those who  love God, to those who are the called according to His   purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be  conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the  firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy  profiting may appear to all. -- I Timothy 4:15

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
