Five Minute Friday – Again
On Friday’s I link to Lisa Jo Baker and take only 5 minute to write a post. Great for making me sit and write with total freedom. Here goes:
Sometimes I feel as I get older I have to do things again and again to get them right. It is getting longer to learn something but I know that in order to get it into my brain I have to do it again and again.
I read Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers and he says:
Thank the Lord that He tells me to persevere. I do get frustrated with myself but then I have moments of extreme joy when I do get it.
I wanted to memorize Scripture. I really didn’t think I could do this. But if I keep saying the words over and over every day – gradually they start to sink in and become part of me. The best comes when the Holy Spirit prompts me to tell someone those words. WOW – is that a high. I joined Ann Voskamp in learning Romans this year.
Then there is this lovely WordPress.org – self-hosted blog, which I love and hate. I love it for the flexibility and the plugins that make things different. But I hate it when I can’t figure something out. I know; trust – pray – and watch God work it out.
So as I learn – I grow. And I know that God is teaching me again – to have patience, to watch for Him and to trust that He will help me with everything I attempt.
Your turn. What are your words for the word – AGAIN.
