Glory Art Scripture Challenge #4 Wisdom

I just plain ran out of time this week and am behind on everything important.  So forgive my way too fast description  of my Glory Art Challenge for Wisdom as Wisdom is NOT something you come by in a hurry.  You can find the challenge HERE.
I am attempting to show an example of God's Wisdom with my card.
My verse is Ephesians 4:26, 27
Do not let the sun go down while  you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
Recently I was a little "miffed" at a friend - not really angry, but just a little miffed.  I kept telling myself that I was being silly but as I did this, I also started telling the person (in my mind) what I thought.  This continued for some time, and I realized instead of forgiving and forgetting, things were getting worse.  I finally asked God to help me as I realized I was not getting anywhere myself.
IMMEDIATELY a verse came to mind - the verse about not giving the devil a foothold.  This was God's Wisdom to help me and He gave it freely and as soon as I asked.
I realized I HAD given the devil a foothold and needed to ask forgiveness and start in the right direction.  I won't say it was the easiest thing, but with God holding my hand and helping me to make a fresh start, I believe I am over the hump.  The rest of my card is self explanatory, and when you ask for God's help to obey, He always gives it.
