Juicy Bones;)… check it out…[article: w01 “A Healing to Your Navel“]

IT IS believed that a large number of mankind’s illnesses are triggered by such emotional stresses as fear, sorrow, envy, resentment, hatred, and guilt. In view of this, how comforting the Bible’s statement that the ‘fear of Jehovah’ is “a healing to your navel and a refreshment to your bones”!— Proverbs 3:7, 8

The bones are the supporting framework of the body. Thus, the Bible uses the word “bones” metaphorically, to represent one’s being—especially as affected by deep feelings and emotions. But how is the fear of Jehovah “a healing to your navel”?

Bible scholars differ in their opinions regarding the mention of the “navel” in this passage. One expositor says that because it is at “the central region of the body,” the “navel” may be representative of all the vital organs. Another scholar suggests that the word “navel” may mean the umbilical cord, as it is used at Ezekiel 16:4. If this is so, Proverbs 3:8 may be emphasizing our need for utter dependence upon God—much as a helpless fetus is completely dependent upon its mother for nourishment. Still another idea is that “navel” may here refer to the muscles and tendons of the body. In the context of this verse, it may be that these parts are being contrasted with the “bones”—the body’s more solid components.


Whatever the specific meaning, one thing is certain: Displaying a reverential fear of Jehovah is the course of wisdom. Conforming to God’s standards can contribute to our physical well-being now. More than that, it can bring Jehovah’s favor upon us, which will lead to endless life in perfect health—physically and emotionally—in his coming new world.— Isaiah 33:24 “And no resident will say: “I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error.

Revelation 21:4

And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Revelation 22:1, 2

And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of its main street. On both sides of the river were trees of life producing 12 crops of fruit, yielding their fruit each month. And the leaves of the trees were for the healing of the nations.

Finding Good

He that is showing insight in a matter will find good.—Prov. 16:20.

How To Stay Out Of Trouble: 5 Helpful Insights

Random ramblings about Profound …You know “pro” as in good and found as in-lol…FIND!;) Proverbs…”pro” “actions”…verb-ing/applying wisdom…(my highlights of excerpted Wisdom Is a Protection W11)

Because a person who is wise at heart tries to “find good” in a matter and ‘trusts in Jehovah.’ When we endeavor to find good in others, we are more likely to speak well of them. Rather than being harsh or confrontational, our words are sweet and persuasive. Insight into the circumstances of others helps us to understand the extent of hardship they may be experiencing and how they are coping with it.

Looking for the good…we refrain from confrontation by choosing “sweet” words…(not talking buttering someone up) just “sincerely” speaking with compassion/insight to those in sight (aka close by) and those in ear shot/word shot…(far away). When we choose kind, it makes “any” circumstance better, eh? or is butter-y…aka smooth..s things out! Sorry, (sleepy and trying (failing?) to rhyme words w/my accent..”er” becomes “A” and eh sounds like A.) Hey, Thanks! for understanding & mostly for forgiving aka not expecting MUCH from a tired blogger namely me: Y-A-W-N!!

Good Night!:)
