Did you - like me - ever stop and think, "When am I going to need to know THIS?" For me, it was all the time: algebra is what comes to mind first, but also some of those life lessons the Good Lord has assigned to me.
Oh, I know. I am familiar with the concept of "all these things shall be for thy experience, and shall be for thy good." And it's true. I am beginning to get the message.
I'm starting to have more opportunities to apply what I have experienced. It's kind of crazy for me to see it. I feel a bit as if I have been learning all my life, and more than a little surprised to run up against a moment where I can say, "Hey, I know this, I've done that one already. Ooh! Ooh! Pick me! I know!"
Recently, I have had an opportunity to share experiences in a way that was useful to someone else. It felt strange and cool all at the same time. Since when am I the tutorial? I am grateful for the circumstances God has placed in my life, knowing I would need those experiences and lessons later on. I am almost giddy with excitement to share what I know. I am also terrified that I will become even more of a preachy know-it-all than I already am. Even so, I am thankful for practical application.
What are you blessed with today?
