Lessons

Have you ever had one of those weeks where lessons seem to abound?  It has been one of those weeks for me - major moments of learning...and yet a week where I feel like God has been whispering step by step...it has been one of those weeks where although it has been painfully hard, I know I'll look back on it as a week where I was tucked under the Lord's arm close to his heart.

Here is a list of a few things I've learned this week:

  1. There is power in vulnerability...especially if it a current weakness rather than something you have overcome in the past...
  2. Listening to a 3-year old talk about dancing princesses will make you wish for simplicity...
  3. Sometimes you are the most effective when you feel as though your emotions are depleted and your strength is used up- it is then that He can miraculously speak through you...
  4. Even the greatest anxiety or unsolvable dilemma can be relieved by kissing a baby...
  5. Embrace interruptions...
  6. And embrace pain...
  7. There is always someone else's situation that will put yours into proper perspective...
  8. Remain thankful...
  9. Sometimes chocolate really does help...
  10. And sometimes cleaning your bathtub really is therapeutic...

Micah 6:8 He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Thanks, Paige, for sharing your heart. It is encouraging in the challenging season that I find myself in.
