I enjoy spending time learning about the matters of life, and especially where it involves the hearts of human beings. I have a curious nature and I’m fond of people watching, not in a critical sense but more to teach myself. I confess to being a deep thinker.
When we think deep we’re led to search for truth. This might begin with “Who am I? What is life really all about?” And, as a result of deep thoughts and unanswered questions we’re often led to the scriptures. That’s a wonderful place to discover truth. Did you know that Jesus and his word of life is the source of all the goodness in the world? It’s really true. And it’s true that as we grow up in learning Him we learn about ourselves.
“Stopping to reflect is one of the most valuable activities people can do to grow.”― John C. Maxwell
Life in hard times can become a lesson. The really wise learn quickly that knowing God will help us to know ourselves. God advises us in his word to “Commune with your own heart upon your beds”
And as we learn about ourselves we see our need for a savior. And we will find that Jesus is the only savior. We find out that dissapointment in the things that we’ve lived in and that fill our lives will often drive us toward eternal truth. That’s exactly what we need.
I’m learning to talk to my Father in deep secret places about myself. I’m amazed about his life changing graces. God loves to make all things new and fresh inside so the light shines through to the outside.
I hope you give this some serious thought. Reason being that unless we make peace with ourselves at the core we will never know true peace. As we pass through experiences of learning on our life journey we will find that we need to pause and seek wisdom and grace to adapt to changing situations and seasons of life. Knowing God will teach us who he created us to be in any season. It’s glorious!
Jesus invites us to come and drink of his living waters.
