Still Learning After All These Years

by | Aug 6, 2017 | Uncategorized

I realized this week that, every time I think I’ve learned to trust the Lord, I hit a new situation where I have to learn all over again.

This past week, the lesson had to do with trusting God in the lives of my friends and family. As a big sister, I like to “be there” for everyone. The last few years, however, my schedule and my health have not always permitted me to do so. This has been hard for me, but I’m learning to accept the reality that I am not God. He is the one that takes care of my family. Sometimes, He allows me to help Him do so, but other times He wants His children to turn to Him for their help and provision.

I used to long for the day when I would not struggle but would do these things faithfully. The older I get, the more I realize that there will always be things that I struggle with, and I will never stop learning to trust and obey. The key is in seeking Him and listening and being willing to learn what He desires to teach me. I pray that I will be faithful to do just that.
