I was reading a book once that suggested I look up what my name means. It said that your name may say a lot about who God created you to be. My name means honey bee. I was stumped at first. What does a honey bee say about my purpose or who I am? I felt compelled to do a little research. What jumped out at me was the fact that most honey bees are female worker bees. They spend their lives gathering nutrients like pollen and nectar to make honey and feed the developing bees. Their sole purpose in life is the nourishment and growth of those bees. Then it hit me. My greatest joy is helping people grow in Christ.
My child, eat honey, for it is good, and the honeycomb is sweet to the taste. In the same way, wisdom is sweet to your soul. If you find it, you will have a bright future, and your hopes will not be cut short.
The purpose of this blog is to share honest wisdom to help us grow our souls and realize our dreams.
