I got an e-mail from a precious friend that honestly wanted to know what God was teaching me today. My first thought was to tell her what I was reading, what sermons I listened to lately or about the great sermon I heard on Psalm 27 yesterday preached by Phil Covert at Carolina Pres. But instead I allowed my mind to simply bring up random things I have learned in the last couple of weeks - or have been reminded of. So her are 12 thoughts. I want to challenge you to make a comment on this blog and at least list 6 things you are learning. I am not into tagging people but if that provokes you to make a comment consider yourself tagged.
1. What am I learning? That when God humbles someone, those around them are affected too. It happens all the time. So be careful who you get into a boat with - some sailors found that out with Jonah.2. We are always in transition - will be until we get to glory. 3. Real friends are precious 4. Not all real friends know how to be friends 5. It is easy to withdraw but harder to return to the land of the living. 6. It is easier to doubt when you are on the sidelines 7. There is no quick fixes to sanctification - it is a marathon 8. God is using a lot of people for his glory - we tend to only see a few. 9. Time moves the same for all of us (that is the theory) it seems to move quicker when you relax. 10. Good fellowship is precious - enjoy it when you have it - it can change overnight. 11. Family is so important - 12. I am insignificant.
