Psalm 119:71 My troubles turned out all for the best— they forced me to learn from your textbook.
Leo sat wide eyed as he listened to Grandpa tell the story of his life. Grandpa had been everywhere, done everything and he said he even had the t-shirts to prove it. Grandpa told Leo about the things he had done right and how he won prizes in school, but what awed Leo were the mistakes Grandpa said he had made. Grandpa went to prison when he was in his twenties and stayed there for 5 years. When Grandpa finally paused Leo asked him if he had regrets and surprisingly Grandpa said no! Not even prison he said; he had learned valuable lessons from everything he did whether right or wrong. It was even in prison that Grandpa met Jesus.
They say every cloud has a silver lining, that a lesson can be learnt from anything. They also say a picture is worth a thousand words
Think About This
Make it a habit to ask yourself what you’ve learnt from whatever situation you are in.
Thank You for taking the time to teach me lessons in lots of different ways. Help me to identify these teaching moments and to learn something new to glorify your name with. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
