â€œExperience is the most brutal of teachers but you learn, my God, do you learnâ€ ~C.S. LewisTweet
So in the midst of adversity and challenges that we did not anticipate nor wish for, we can only persevere and attempt to learn from the experience. I wonder years from now what will history say about this time in which we find ourselves living and what will be said about us as individuals, nations and the world?
I pray that we learn. And use this experience to do better and to correct any mistakes in the future. Like Solomon I pray for wisdom each day in the choices I make. Those that affect my family, my friends, those I work with and others that may be touched by the ripples I create.
5Â In Gibeon theÂ LordÂ appeared to SolomonÂ in a dream at night; and God said, â€œAsk whatÂ you wishÂ Me to give you.â€
6Â Then Solomon said, â€œYou have shown great lovingkindness to Your servant David my father,Â according as he walked before You in truth and righteousness and uprightness of heart toward You; andÂ You haveÂ reserved for him this great lovingkindness, that You have given him a son to sit on his throne, asÂ it isÂ this day.Â 7Â Now, OÂ LordÂ my God,Â You have made Your servant king in place of my father David, yetÂ I am but a little child;Â I do not know how to go out or come in.Â 8Â Your servant is in the midst of Your people which You have chosen,Â a great people who are too many to be numbered or counted.Â 9Â SoÂ give Your servantÂ an understanding heart to judge Your peopleÂ to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge thisÂ great people of Yours?â€
10Â It was pleasing in the sight of the Lord that Solomon had asked this thing. ~1 Kings 3:5-9 (NASB)
May our leaders also being praying for and asking for wisdom. So, how are you doing with during this time? Are you affected by any stay at home orders?
I would love to hear your thoughts. Stay safe my friends and God bless! ðŸ˜Š
