These past few weeks have been … just different. I feel I’m learning more now than I have in a while — and school has nothing to do with it. I’ll just run down a few things I’ve been going through lately.
Someone told me something about how things were going with them, and I shared some of what going on with me. I learned something though that conversation though, and that is that sometimes what we see in others really isn’t bad, but rather good — even when it appears horrible or hopeless. I have no idea where God has them or me. He may have me somewhere all alone for many years, yet if I were to pass that time up and run after my own desires nothing that God had for me to do could be accomplished (or it could, it would just probably take a lot longer and a lot more heartache). Strangely enough, I’ve been thinking about this for the past few days and was awakened at 6:19 (I set my alarm clock weird) by a radio program, which I donâ€™t regularly listen to (time: obviously). The speaker was talking about Joseph and how the time he had been in prison helped build his character. On another note, he mentioned he didnâ€™t complain either. I may have missed the entire point he was trying to make (as I only heard around five minutes of it), but that was just what I needed to hear. That said, Iâ€™ve heard it before already at my church â€¦
I said school wasn’t one, but it’s strange because three of my classes are all different, yet they’re all talking about the same thing in different ways (sometimes). The thing I am picking up most is the economic side of things, which is quite interesting. This is just a side note though…
Basically everything Iâ€™ve listened to lately all agrees with each other (all they all come from all over the place). I watched a movie last night that taught me a lot about how to live life â€“ selfless. Thereâ€™s just a lot of things that just been going on, and Iâ€™m just praying that I stop trying to figure it all out, and just step back and let God do what he wants to do. The more knowledge I have, the more useless I am â€“ if thatâ€™s all I have. The more I try to figure things out, the more I see there are some things that arenâ€™t meant to be figured out by my own human wisdom. Itâ€™s frustrating sometimes, no doubt, but itâ€™s the only way to go. As much as I wish Iâ€™m over all of what Iâ€™ve been hearing, Iâ€™m not. So, Iâ€™m learning â€¦
