Still Learning

By Cathy Irvin
Staff Writer - We are never too old to learn. I am still learning to lean on the everlasting arms of Jesus when life throws a curve ball as I walk along life’s highway on my journey as a Christian.

I am still learning to love those that are unlovely along the way. I think God isn’t finished with them or me either for that matter, so I need to accept everyone for who they are and for what they will become in God’s timing. My job is to pray for them on the way to their transformation.

I am still learning to laugh, not at others but at myself and sometimes with others. We are all still robed in these earthly bodies, yet we are trying to let heaven fill our souls each day. It can get comical in some of those moments.

I am still learning to be led by the Spirit. As God’s Word tells me, if I do so I won’t fulfill the lusts of the flesh. I want to live my life by walking daily in the Spirit, recognizing that my life is hidden "in Christ” and the life I now live I live by faith in the Son of God.

I am still learning to live one day at a time, which is so much easier than worrying or fretting about tomorrow, which we are not promised. The Lord says: His grace is sufficient for today!

The list is endless of what I am learning as I grow older both naturally and spiritually. I find that learning can be fun, especially  when I put myself in a position to be teachable. That’s when I am reachable for the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me in every step I take.

I pray I will learn something new at all times. Then, I will know that I am growing “In Christ” as I live my life out here on earth. Most of all, I pray  that I will learn to tell others how good God is and how much He loves them, so that in turn we will all learn about what life is really about!

Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance. (Proverbs 1:5 NIV)

Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. (Proverbs 9:9 NIV)
