Let the wise listen and add to their learning.
Spring Break 2012 was a week packed with firsts:
|Clara on her first "real" bike ride|
Hayleigh learned to snow ski.
Clara and Carynne each caught their first fish.
Learning new things is exciting, but it comes with pain.
Clara fell off her bike more than once and skinned her knee.
Hayleigh fell several times at ski school.
Carynne couldn't catch a fish without enduring bugs, minnows and waiting.
I want to go farther with God. I want to experience some new firsts with Him.
I want to be led more by His voice within and less by my own thoughts.
I yearn to draw closer to His purposes and farther from my selfishness.
These firsts will not come without discomfort. I will experience growing pains. But just as my daughters experienced the delight of accomplishment and development, joy awaits me on the other side of my first.
How about you? Does your heart hold a first? Let's take one step closer to our first today.
