“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
My flesh was already racing on the type of confrontation to give that will drive my point home. They seem to be taking more than its convenient for us to give.
This was happening in my thought as I drove home. Someone did something wrong at home. On this particular day, I wanted to confront her, but I sensed the Holy Spirit wasn’t in support. But the flesh wanted to have its way anyways.
And then the rain. It rained so well that I couldn’t pass by to our home. So, I was trapped inside the car waiting for the water that has covered the road to recede. A message was playing from the car mp3. And I had to listen for over an hour.
The message killed every stint that wanted to react. Instead, was a renewed strength and grace to pass this test of love. Finally, the rain receded and I went home. And today i’m glad for that delay that enabled me to learn.
I was trapped to learn.
There are seasons of life that we might be trapped to learn. Things happen the way we didn’t expect.And in that season, the only sane option is to wait & learn.
Just like this season where the world is “trapped” at home. There is definitely something to learn. There is something to learn that you couldn’t have learned in a fast paced instant living we had before the slow down.
So, learn all you can in this phase.Study the word, pray, reach out. Listen to messages, write your journal, learn a new skill,take an online course, by all good means learn. You will be glad you did. You will be needing the knowledge soon.
Don’t grumble, don’t be bored. Get yourself busy learning in this season. Grace to you.
