What am I supposed to learn from this?

To say the last two years have been challenging for many of us seems like the most obvious statement. It’s true. But it can always be worse, right? I’m *always* working on shifting my thinking from “why is this happening to me?” to “what am I supposed to be learning from this?”

God didn’t send us here so we could sail smoothly on the seas of life. He sent us so we could become like him through the refining process that IS life. It can either happen to you, or you can take what’s happening and learn from it so you can be better prepared for what’s coming. I’ve been in a permanent state of “what’s coming” since 2019 and I’m exhausted. Sometimes I want to throw in the towel and say, forget it I’ll just keep coasting on by and whatever happens, happens. But if there’s one thing I’m not it’s someone who sits back and lets things happen to her.

I sense that all of us are experiencing these trying times to urge us to expand and grow and be ready for what’s next. Are you taking the opportunity to ask what you can learn? How you can grow and change to meet the demands placed on you? It’s not easy but I think it will be essential in the coming days. To fine tune the process of hearing Him as the world grows ever more confusing. What will be your guide? Do you trust in yourself and your intuition? Do you follow those promptings?

These are things I’m asking myself daily. What am I supposed to be learning? What should I be doing? It looks different for everyone which is why it’s even more important that we fine tune that “listening to God” process for ourselves.

Anyways, just some random thoughts as I sit in a very empty house, wearing smelly clothing, waiting for our movers who looks like won’t be showing up when they say, yet again. What am I supposed to be learning from this?

What is life teaching you right now? #erinslifetalks
