THE book...with THE ANSWERS!!!

Quite awhile ago, I was havin a conversation with several people,  and someone stated, "oh I just wish there was a book that told us ALL the answers to the questions in life." I'm standin there thinkin ummmmmmm HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOO....So I'm like not wantin sound like a NO-IT-ALL...but I'm just like, well there is, its called THE BIBLE!!!!!!!!!! (Like DUH!!!)
And someone else was just like yeah, THE BIBLE!!! And the person that had made the statement was like, Oh well yeah, I know the Bible BUT thats not what I was talkin about...I mean a book that says EXACTLEY what we need to do in every situation in life..and someone else was like OH YEAH I know exactley what you mean, like the Bible is good BUT sometimes you just need an answer right then and there to your situation.
They were like, yeah, I mean sometimes you just want to know what to do when your on the job and someone is gettin on your nerves. I was kinda startin to get pretty annoyed with these people, I mean HELLLLOOO, these were CHURCH could they not see??? To some degree I can understand what they were sayin, sometimes it seems like the right thing to do is unclear. Sometimes I to wish that there was some sort of thing I could go to for an INSTANT RIGHT ANSWER.
However, the word of God IS the book with ALL of the answers to the questions of life!!! There is NO THING that we can NOT find the answer to in the Bible. Your situation is NOT so unique that the answer can not be found in God's word. "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
 I think to often we take the word of God to lightly, we take it for granted. We FORGET that it really is God's word to us. It really does have ALL THE ANSWERS!!! We might have to pray, we may have to seek God and search out His word BUT if we do we WILL GET A ANSWER!!!
There is no situation in life that is not covered in the Bible. If you go to Proverbs alone, you will find so much wisdom that covers everything from finances, work, marriage, children, gossip, anger, much in just one book of the Bible...
 AND YES you can even find the answer to what to do if someone is annoyin you at work OR if someone is annoyin you ANYWHERE for that matter...which is good cuz the world is filled with ANNNNOYIN people...LOL...
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. (Proverbs 15:1)
A quick-tempered man does foolish things, and a crafty man is hated. (Proverbs 14:17)
It is to a man's honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel (Proverbs 20:3)
A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.(Proverbs 29:11)
I can't reiterate important the Bible is. The Bible is GOD SPEAKING TO US!!! It is the inspiration of God, how incredibly amaZin is that??? WE may want that INSTANT answer BUT God wants us to search it out in order for us to know him better and to draw closer to him. "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter." (Proverbs 25:2) It is the honor of royalty for us to search out God's word. Don't take the Bible for granted.  It IS THE BOOK WITH ALL THE ANSWERS TO LIFE!!! No matter what comes your way in life...REMEMBER...
