You are a Ponderer

You are someone who fiercely and intentionally guards her heart.  Once you process your emotions you then can embrace wisdom.

“Behold, You delight in truth in the inward being, and You teach me wisdom in the secret heart,"

— Psalm 51:6

So what does it really mean?

Your wisdom superpower includes pausing to process before you invite others to speak into your situation. You are careful and discerning about your closest relationships. You feel things deeply and seek to understand other people’s perspectives and points of view.

A willingness to sit with something before immediately reacting allows you to deescalate difficult or tense situations. Because you often keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself while processing them, you sometimes feel alone in your hard circumstances.

SOME THOUGHTS on being a ponderer...

1

Sometimes your desire to ponder can lead to feelings of isolation or overwhelm.

Your emotions can overtake you while you wrestle with them within your own heart. Your big heart longs to understand and empathize with others’ feelings, but sometimes your own emotions can get lost in the process. Finding an outlet to express your feelings and process them objectively will be important. You are not meant to carry your burdens alone.

2

While a time of pondering can bring some peace to the situation...

especially when conflict or differences of opinion are involved, an excessive time of pondering can also lead to inactivity toward a resolution. Setting a goal for yourself to share your feelings regarding the situation will remind you to keep resolution as the primary goal.

3

When you cannot understand the other person’s point of view -

or discern the best way to handle the situation, create a list of questions to ask yourself and other people involved to gain a deeper understanding of the situation. Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers,” so let’s find some blessings for you on your wisdom path!

Hello there!

BEFORE WE GET TOO FAR INTO THIS...

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Erica Wiggenhorn.

Erica Wiggenhorn, Women's Speaker and Author

I’ve made it my life’s work to simplify the Bible: I’m here to show you how to apply Scripture to YOUR life! 

Yep, you heard right — the Bible can give you insight into your unique struggles and circumstances. I have given hundreds of people the guidance they need to live more fully in the Word of God. Think you could use a little extra support?

🙌 Together, we’ve got this 🙌

We all know the Bible contains wisdom. But how do we take these ancient promises and principles and apply them to our modern day problems? Move from mere information to a place of spiritual discernment. I tell people all the time, “Jesus saved me from my sins, but His Word, the Bible, saves me from myself every single day!

I didn’t grow up going to church and when I became a Christian I did not like reading my Bible. Okay, I’ll straight up admit it- I thought it was boring and confusing and I could not for the life of me understand how to apply it to my life. So it sat on my nightstand and I dusted it off once a week to take it with me to church.

Until I met some women who gave me the Secret Decoder Ring for Scripture and the Bible began to come alive and speak to me regarding my everyday life and circumstances. My heart’s desire became creating resources to help it come alive for other women as well!

Three tips for processing your emotions when you can't seem to think straight:

Intentionally Connect

You are wise and careful with your relationships. Because you go deep with a trusted few, rather than wide with the masses, make sure you intentionally connect with these soul sisters on a regular basis!

Keep Scripture

Keep Scripture before you to balance out your emotions. Truth is your anchor when a storm of emotions start to swirl around you.

Download these two free lockscreens to keep your desire for wisdom always before you:

Psalm 51:6  

James 1:12

Share them on IG and tag me @ericawiggenhorn. I can’t tell you how much it will bless me to know these encouraged you!

Utilize a prayer journal

Prayer can reduce anxiety and enhance mental clarity. Setting aside the same time every day, before you study, can calm your nervous system, rewire neural pathways and set you up to get the most out of the wisdom found in Scripture. Writing out your feelings in response to your circumstances and what you found in Scripture will help sort out your emotions and apply truth to them.

"You are not able to do it alone. Whatever it is in your life. A difficult marriage, a special needs child, a sick family member, financial crisis or medical diagnosis. Carrying the burden alone will overtake you. God lays out His plan for His people to go in peace in the life of Moses."
