Life is no respecter of persons – we each have a our daily share of lessons to learn, challenges to face and so on. This is a good thing. Each lesson is specifically and uniquely designed to accommodate its recipient/student. The Overseer (God) of our lives knows exactly which life experience works for our individual good. From the backed up traffic on an important day, to the long lines that never cease at making us wait – the lesson points to what’s happening on the inside of us.
At other times unknown to us, the things that seem to be delayed are working for our good too – we may never know how many “near misses” have been avoided.
Spiritual & personal development is always in pursuit of us, we merely need pursue that which pursues us.
When our love for God is the prerequisite for living and being, be assured, “All things are working for our good”. See Romans 8:28
What does it mean to love God? In part it means that we’re willing to seek His guidelines and principals for daily living, bringing them to the forefront of our intents.
Can we love God and make mistakes? All we have to do is look at ourselves and the choices that we make in order to get the answer for that one. “…least we forget how fragile we are.” ~Sting
Our conscious surrender to the One Who is in charge of all, directs our path in ways that are beneficial for our overall good. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will counsel you with My loving eye on you.” ~Psalm 32:8 (NLT)
As you prepare for another day, remember that each encounter is a lesson. You may or may not get its meaning on impact, but if you’re open & willing to learn – paying attention to your own responses & reflexes – you will indeed learn.
