The Lessons of Life Series: Introduction


In this series I want to share with you what life has taught me. Life is a master teacher, the world is her classroom, and you, I, and the rest of humanity are her students.  Just like any institutions of higher learning, there are lessons that must be learned and mastered before there is promotion. If tests are not passed, and worked not done there will be no progress, and you will be stuck in spiritual special education.

I spent many years in special education, due to fail attempts to learn what  life was trying to convey to me. Even though I kept doing the same thing repeatedly and getting the same results, I still couldn’t seem to understand why I kept experiencing the same situation over and over again.  It wasn’t until I was at the end of myself, and I needed something higher than myself, that finally put an end to the chaos that was my life.  It took much pain, heartache, and hurt to make me turn to the only true source of happiness, peace, and contentment. The end of my self imposed hell was not found in a religion, church, mosque, or synagogue. It was found in God, thru the love of His son Jesus. Surrendering my life and will to Him, helped me to understand myself and the world around me.

I am like the Apostle Paul, “Not that I have already obtained all of this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.  Brothers and Sisters, I do not consider myself yet to taken hold of it.  But this one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.” Philippians 3:12-13
