At church today someone read out a verse, Proverbs 13:12

Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
   but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Only I miss heard it and thought it said 'Hope deferred makes a heart seek'.

I was thinking how when we face difficulties and when our life doesn't go as plan we have a choice. We can choose to be full of anger or we can seek God.

When I looked up the verse I realised my mistake. It's true, a hope deferred does make the heart sick, and I like the idea of a longing fulfilled. But I have defiantly seen lately how seeking God is the best decision when your heart is sick.
