Lessons

I've been thinking a lot about how God teaches us lessons. I know we should never ask God "Why ..." and question Him but it's so dag on hard to ask God instead " What do you want me to learn from ...?" I feel like once I get things figured out something bad or unexpected happens and God uses the shepherds staff and brings me back and once again, teaches me a hard lesson. Do you ever get to the point to where you really don't want to learn anymore lessons?! Hey God...I think that's one of the reason's I decided not to go back to school! I know this is the place where He wants us...where we grow and mature...but I tell ya, it's hard! Here's a couple verses that I read this week that changed my attitude (work in progress!):

Self-pity has been thrown in the recycle bin. In it's place, I'm wearing the song that my Father sings over me. Zephaniah 3:14-17

The backbreaking garment of guilt is no longer slung over my shoulders. Instead, I'm clothed with His promise of newness. Isaiah 43:18-19

The wandering imaginations of my mind have been restored with the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16

That unstoppable pride, the heaviest load of all has been thrown away. In it's place I'm putting on the humility of Christ himself. Philippians 2:3-7
