Wisdom 'N Rhymeby Noah C. Hardy

In January, 1987, at age 48, I was stricken with ulcerative colitis. I was gravely ill and on the brink of a major organ failure. All my intestines were severely inflamed because of a medication I had taken in order to treat ankylosing spondylitis. (A form of arthritis of the spine).
I spent twelve days in a hospital due to my illness, and a couple nights after my release from the hospital I was in our spare bedroom praying that God would touch and heal me. And during that time of prayer I had an encounter with the Lord God, and that encounter was unlike anything I had ever experienced. I did not see God, nor did I hear His voice, but I felt the Lord's power and presence over-shadowing me in a way in which I go wanting for words in order to fully explain that experience. My encounter with God was similar to that of Job only in that God opened my mind and revealed unto me who I was, and who God the Father really is. The Holy Spirit revealed unto me the enormous sin of pride, and a need for me to repent and change my sinful attitude. Thank You, Lord, for Your eternal mercy!
Soon after my spiritual awakening, I began to have thoughts come into my mind in a way that I had not ever experienced. The thoughts were Biblical truths and principles that were often formulated in rhyme, and they were occurring randomly day and night. But soon I realized I was forgetting the rhymes, sometimes within minutes of their occurrence, then I realized there was a necessity to quickly write my thought down; sometimes I would write them on a small piece of scratch paper.
For the most part, but with a few exceptions, each page of this book contains rhymes and axioms in the order they initially came into my mind.
