What’s the biggest lesson you learned so far this year? topic # 75

What’s the biggest lesson you learned so far this year? The lesson? God’s time, not my time. This has been a year that involved all kinds of change, adaptation, patience, and directional changes. I never anticipated all of things we have had to deal with this year. No one could have predicted all of the difficulties. Yet, of course, people do get handed challenges and difficulties. I have always enjoyed good health. As I told my doctor after I got Bell’s Palsy (when he asked why I hadn’t gotten a flu shot)—I haven’t had the flu since my 1st year after college….and that was a LONG time ago.(and I never had a flu shot)  He couldn’t believe it.

Anyway, throughout all of the difficulties thus far in the year, we have clung tightly to our faith in God and our love for each other. We have made it through so far–and we know God’s abiding love and protection have helped us enormously. Things haven’t progressed in the timeframe I picked, either. That usually really makes me cranky and even bitter at times. Not this year—perhaps I have been so busy taking care of business that I didn’t even have time to get mad the way I often have!

God’s ways are so much better. His love is amazing, and sees us through everything. God is with me always…always…and all ways.
