Morning Prayer, Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: I'M LEARNING TO . . .
Father God, no matter how old I live to be what I do not want to forget is that I am teachable. Amen
"True humility is remaining teachable regardless of what you think you already know." As I get older and wiser, I am learning to be more confident in me, to not look for my joy in outside sources and to trust that God truly does have my best interest at heart. That took a bit of time but I have reached a good place in all of those areas but believe me, I did not do it alone. My growth spurt has been at the hand of a loving and kind God and those that He has placed around me to be guides, mentors and friends. Some have filled the shoes of all three. I'm not saying that I have reached that point of perfection as a person, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a co-worker and so on. Nope. I still have some growing up to do. I am yet learning not to be so quick to judge other people. I am learning not to lose faith when things are looking grim. I am learning to smile when I feel like crying. I am learning to not put self at the forefront when it should be others because even though I want to make it all about me, I can't. God placed me here for more than that. I am learning to listen and look for what God is saying and doing in my life. I would be further along on this journey called life if only I had been more teachable along the way. I am learning to take the good with the bad. You know how we do, always wanting to keep the good and throw out the bad. It's the bad that helps me to better appreciate the good that is coming my way. Yes, I am still learning to be teachable. Just because I am older and wiser does not mean I know everything. I know God knows more and so I try to keep my ear to His in hopes that I can be better, brighter, happier, holier, and more loving and lovable. It will all happen if I can just keep learning.
