Messages Of Faith

Everyday is a learning experience

Every morning God provides us with a new day. With every new day holds opportunities to learn. For some, this comes easy & natural. For others however, learning a new skill can be very hard & frustrating. What is sad is that children & adults alike get horrifically teased if they show the least bit of struggle. Especially those with any form of disability, both physical and mental. I know this from my own experiences. Yes, I have a physical disability, but CP is referred to as an umbrella condition because many other conditions can compound with it & complicate the issues CP causes. Have no fear though, because CP is one of the those conditions that’s ‘designed’ to improve with time.

Anyway, back to what I was orginally saying about learning being difficult for some. I do know what is like to get teased in a learning enviroment because I don’t have the best vision, so reading is especially hard for me. My fatigue level can also play a big part of my difficulty in school. Now that I am in college it is much easier to work around fatigue levels. But, I wasn’t so lucky in high school. I was unfortunately one of those kids who fell asleep in every class. Not from laziness but pure exhaustion from straining to both sit up a long period of time & trying to focus enough to write with a pencil or pen. Honestly, I am still amazed that I graduated high school at all. Let alone with a 3.75 GPA! πŸ™‚ God must’ve let a lot of angels around me. Including my grandma, who went to live with the Lord just months before.

I dare you…. to PRAY πŸ™‚
While sitting here staring at a blank post, I had been thimking of what to write and listening to the KLove radio station. I had caught the end of a commericial break & the woman in it said something that struck me as material to write about. She had said something to the affect of “if we don’t share with others, how are we suppose to know that we’re not alone in life?”

You know, it’s one thing to shrugg our shoulders and be a listening ear when people tell us what their troubles are. And sometimes that’s somebody needs is that listening ear of somebody. But there are also those things and we can hear they need help with whatever it is. But we don’t know how help to or won’t bat an eyelash after they leave. But later when we think back on them we eat at ourselves because that question of “how do I help?” or “what can I do?” comes up again. You may even think to yourself “well, I can’t help because I’m able to do (whatever)” Yes, you can and are!

Whoever you are, wherever you are in life, offer to pray for them or even with them. πŸ™‚ And then follow through and do it! I say this because so many of us say we will pray for somebody & turn away and don’t follow through and do it. You would be suprised how many people will return to you later and tell you how much your prayers have helped them and how God continues to work in their life. Try it! πŸ™‚
