I’m going to take a little time to confess here, when I married @ 19 years of age, I thought that I knew it all. I was an adult now, taking on adult responsibilities and paving my own way. Fast forward almost 40 years, I have had many more times of this type of thinking.
What I have learned is that @ 19 years of age I didn’t really know much at all and now almost 40 years later, I’m just a step more close to being a bit more wise. All these years have simply been practice moments to becoming who God created me to be. And I’m grateful that He is a forgiving and gracious God to allow me to practice over and over again.
Philippians 2:6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
I have decided that in this life God allows me to have opportunities to practice so that He can grow me and watch me flourish as I lean more into Him and less into myself. As it’s said, “Practice makes Perfect” and I know I won’t be perfect until the day I’m sitting next to my maker.
Thanks to God for His patience, Jesus for His example and the Holy Spirit for His guidance. Amen!

This is what I got in a nutshell: We all fail and learn from practice and strive for perfection and one day we’ll be made perfect in God’s presence.
