A Verse for Writers and Other Artists

As I plunge headlong through a jam-packed, stress-heavy workday, I am reminded of a Scripture verse I found quoted recently in a devotional… Ecclesiastes 38:24:

The wisdom of the scribe cometh by his time of leisure and he that is less in action shall receive wisdom.

    Ecclesiastes 38:25 really touched me today thank you for reminding me that wisdom is poured out through us only when we take time… and rest in Jesus.
    I needed to hear these words today
    Thanks!
    p.s. Phil 1:20-21
