Listen and Learn!
Or we gripe, “If I only knew then, what I know now…”
We cannot go back to be smarter teenagers, wiser women, or more knowledgeable men. However, we can learn from last year, and hopefully move forward with new knowledge this year…
A long time ago I made one final resolution. To quit making resolutions!
This year, I declared KNEW YEAR! Keeping with my old resolution, not to make resolutions, I decided to recall what I learned last year.
If we learned one thing, we are all smarter this year, than last year. Who hasn’t had some hard lessons, hard times, challenges, unnecessary pain, and stupid moves…
Unlike University, this is life in the Universe! We get the test first, then the lesson. Like courage. We experience the fear first, feel courageous afterward.
It’s been my experience, God keeps us enrolled in His efforts to teach us His wisdom. He will keep schooling us, as long as we show up for class: prayer, reading and listening to scripture. He will bless us with His lessons of wisdom first. Instead of failing tests, and suffering unnecessary struggles, we are prepared for life. Smarter. Better. Blessed.
If we remember what we learned from God last year, we can always make it a Knew Year…
(Doesn’t mean it will be easier.)
Happy Knew Year.
