When I was a kid, I remember thinking things went so slow. It would take an eternity to get out of school that day. Don’t even talk about the vacations to Alabama… that literally took forever.
Twenty years later and things go by faster than ever. It seems like just a few weeks ago it was Christmas time. Why is it that days seem to go by so much faster when we’re older? It flies by so fast, personally, I’ve forgotten my own age at times. To think next school year, I’ll have been out of highschool ten years…
I feel like I’ve learned some things in reverse over the years. When I read a magazine article or pamphlet, often times I’ll start from the back and work my way to the front, and sometimes I feel like that’s how I learn things sometimes: in the opposite way the rest of the world seems to learn things. Not that my ways right and there’s wrong, its just different.
I’m so thankful for how the Lord has lead me over the years. He leads me in ways I don’t understand, but I look back and can see the roads and places he’s taken me on that, if A didn’t happen, the. B could have never happened. It’s an amazing mystery how He works. While I wish I could say I trusted his direction all those times, I can’t. One of the best things I’ve learned over these recent years is to trust in the Lord and not my own understanding. It’s always interesting the steps he leads you on.
