Debra's Corner

The theme for this page is "Quotes" of Divine Wisdom as seen through the eyes of the Saints of Old.                        

The theme text is: Job 12:12 - Is not "Wisdom" found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?

Debra's Corner will consist of "Quotes"  or "sayings" that I heard throughout my life from those "Saints of Old" who have impacted my life from a child to now. Many of them have gone on to be with the Lord and some are still yet here, still imparting divine wisdom into those who are willing to receive it.

What I realized about those "quotes" that I heard from them while I was growing up was the fact that many of them were biblical. I am not sure if they realized it or if I am just realizing it now that I am the age that they were when they began to impart their divine wisdom into my life. Whichever way it may go, their words are still ringing out loud in my head and are still making an impact in my life today.

In looking back now over my life and reflecting on the time that I spent in their presence, truly I can say that they had a personal relationship with God that was rooted deep down in their souls by faith. They were not able to quote scriptures or speak proper language like many today, neither did they have the education that we have access to today, but they knew the Word of God and was able to speak it in their own words and their own way with a greater impact and results than many bible scholars do today.

I believe in my heart that the "quotes" they often spoke in the way they knew how to were scripturally  based upon their knowledge of  Romans 10:17-Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

Today,  October 3, 2015-this page is dedicated in memory of those saints who had or still is impacting my life in one way or another from birth until their transition from earth to eternity with the Lord.

I thank God for every name that is listed here today. It was the impact of these people in one way or another that has helped me become who I am today and for that I do "tel the Lord thank you".

I thank God for the wisdom that I received as I was and is still able to cross the path of all those (past and present) “Christian Giants” in my years of growing up then and now.

God bless and Let's enjoy the ride together with Jesus.
