8 Life Lessons I've Learned Lately



This is an uncomfortable topic for me to discuss, but one that I feel is necessary.  I won't go into much detail, but I will say that this last year has been a trying year and full of struggle. However, God has been good and brought my family and I through some very tough times. I am not at all the person that I was a year ago. I have changed as a person in more ways than one. I like to think that I have changed for the better but I guess that's up to God to decide on that one. I'm going to let go of my pride and share with you somethings that I have learned in the last year.

  • I have learned to be less judgemental. Let's face it, we all are at one point and time. Afterall, we are only human. 
  • I have learned to be less opinionated. 
  • I have learned to be more kind. Everyone could use a little kindness thrown their way. You never know what kind of personal battle someone is facing. A smile and a little kindness can go a long way and brighten someone's day.
  • I have had to learn to forgive those who have said some hurtful and unkind things to me.
  • I have learned to Pray more and Trust God more
  • I have had to learn to live below our means, cut our expenses and really budget in order for us to not struggle so much financially. This has been a good thing though, because with every purchase we now question the necessity of it and spend our money more wisely.
  • I have learned that God puts us in some uncomfortable positions to grow and strengthen us.
  • Last but not least, I have learned about the love of God like never before. I have learned so much about God and grown so much as a Christian. I have learned a lot especially through my son Raylan. God uses him to work on me. My four year old son loves to go to church, he loves Jesus and always tells me that everything will be ok as long as we have Jesus in our hearts. He is exactly right! I pray he always keeps Jesus in his heart, is kind to everyone and keeps a love for church. I may not do very many things right in life, but I do know that teaching him about God is the best thing that I could ever do for him. Raylan motivates me to want to go to church more and be an all around better person.
Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

"Life is a journey that must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accommodations" - Oliver Goldsmith

I'm thankful for the journey that I had to go through so that I could learn these powerful life lessons and have a closer relationship with God. If It wasn't for the Journey, I wouldn't be the person that I am today.

What are some lessons that you have learned lately?
