As a young adult, I decided to take God at His Word. Meaning, I began to believe that what He said was true. And what he commanded, I should do. Many might not consider the following verse a command, but more like a suggestion:
I know He has because my momma says He has. And we all know when momma says something like that, she’s right.
One of the ways I believe I have been granted wisdom beyond my years is through my experiences. I’ve seen 30-year olds with more wisdom than 80-year olds. How is that possible? Because we are supposed to learn from our experiences. But, if we don’t let the hard knocks in life teach us what we need to learn, then the difficulties we have faced were for naught. Nada. Zilch.
And I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to stay the same. I want to learn from every situation that I’m placed in. So, I make sure the posture of my heart is submissive and the palms of my hands are willingly open to lay aside anything that Cindy wants in life. Because I’ve been bought with a price…my life is not my own.
