……But are you learning?

One of life’s greatest treasures are the lessons learned along the way. There are times where once can find themselves trying to answer the “why’s” of life. While there is not anything wrong with asking such a question, becoming fixated causes stagnation. A month or so ago, I found myself in a place of survival. Surviving the work week, surviving personal challenges, just surviving….amidst the aforementioned, I reached a place of exhaustion from the efforts to just survive while others were living. While on my morning commute, I embraced the moment to entrust the Lord with all of my emotions regarding that place of survival. What I could not find the words to say, I uttered with my tears. When my tears ceased to flow any further, I extended my hands as a sign of surrender. As I approached the parking lot, swiftly parking my car to avoid being late, I gently said what is the lesson in all of “this.”

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. -Proverbs 3:5

Ready for the answer? Well Proverbs 3:5 says it best. Anyone can trust in the Lord when things are going well…..but what about when you have been waiting for the Lord to answer your prayer, or when it seems as though nothing is happening? Trust in the Lord all the more!!!! Are you learning?????
