[God’s school]

[God’s school]

I want to write… I do. The mind is working. Sort of.

Yet either due to the fact that I haven’t had coffee since Friday (finally decided on what I am giving up for Lent this year – took me some time), or due to something else, I find myself overemotionally emotionless. I doubt that term existed before, yet that’s the only way I can describe this condition. One day I am fine and laughing with my friends about random stuff, and the next I am moody and I don’t want anything. UGH. This is so not like me.

I have a few problems that I am not looking forward to solve. I do want to solve them, but it’s not going to be easy, so I postpone. Like in that saying, “Never do something today that you can postpone until tomorrow.” Or was it the other way around? 🙂

I keep thinking of the question that my youth pastor will undoubtedly ask on Friday at the prayer meeting. He always asks each one of us that question.

“What has God been teaching you this week?”

Honestly, I do not know. Well… He has been teaching me about waiting… and patience… and all the other things that I don’t like to learn.

He has been teaching me that friends are actually His undercover agents that make me smile even when I don’t feel like smiling at all.

He has been teaching me that life is short and that I should treasure each and every moment. After watching quite a lot of ER episodes, I can’t help but think about the way time flies – one moment the person is alive and the next – *poof* – he’s gone. And while sometimes you know that the *poof* moment is coming, often that moment finds you completely unprepared.

He has been teaching me that life isn’t always great, but thankfully this is not the life I was created for. That one hasn’t even started.

What has God been teaching YOU this week?

  • Okay. I tried reading this post. But I got all disturbed when I heard you gave up coffee.

    I mean. Really?

    God talks to His children when they're having coffee in the mornings.

    It's His thing…. at least for me. 🙂

    • It's only during the Lent and I mostly drink coffee on my way to work (and I go with two of my friends)… Instead I want to spend that time on the balcony of our office building getting some quiet time.

      Besides, I started drinking way too much coffee lately, relying on it instead of the strength and energy that He provides. *shrug*

  • Well Zee…I am proud of you that you are going drug-free. 🙂 Seriously, I am in one of those in-between states. I am somewhere in the middle of "I am not learning much of anything" and "I have so much to learn." does that make sense? it is like I am on the cusp of something but just can't seem to put my finger on it. Oh well, time will come. Now…back to my Diet Dr. Pepper (I wish). Love ya sis.

    • Thanks, Bill.

      It does make sense – often I wonder "If God wants me to learn SO MUCH, how on earth am I going to do it?" (but then, i guess i have just answered my own question… it's not going to be on earth… maybe. dunno…) 🙂 But yes, it does make sense.

      love ya bro.

  • celebrating broken periods in life… hmm… that's a tough lesson to learn, but once you do, it sure helps…

    **hugs and prayers**
