The Aha Moment of Teachability
Was thinking of you my friend and wanted to share a word of encouragement with you. This morning I was reading my devotional as I always do. At first I didn’t quite understand nor grasp while I was reading about seasons. It took the day to progress to remind me why it is I read my morning devotional! I was so thankful that I did because it gave me such great hope. The message was so good that I could not wait to share it with you. It immediately made me think you!
This morning’s devotional was on ‘seasons’. Just like in part of the world, there are 4 seasons experienced. Each season is very different from the other and no two are alike. The seasons in life that we endure are much of the same way. Some seasons are extremely encouraging and uplifting and in those times it seems like everything is going just perfect. Then there are seasons where our day, week, month, or year, may encounter some unexpected challenges. We can choose to focus on the challenges in front of us and wonder why they are never ending. Our attitude can be aloof, callous, negative, and depressing OR we can choose to ASK God to give us a moment of teaching, a lesson and tutorial of how to bring about good and learn from the situation, challenges, and tribulations you are currently facing.
We will never go through a season without a challenge. The good news is the challenging season will eventually end and when that time comes, what you learned from it will determine the outcome of you moving onward and upward. If your attitude exhibits murmuring and complaining, you could be wasting your time on something that could have been a light bulb moment for you. When the time was right, that light bulb movement could have been just what you needed for your breakthrough, but you missed it because your attitude wasn’t aligned with your altitude, rising about your circumstances and learning to overcome. It’s not about your situation, it’s about your attitude and mindset of overcoming and asking God to meet you in the middle of your storm, a moment that could change the scope of your life and help you to see things just a little differently.
Until next time….
