Remember the directions on a shampoo bottle: Wash, rinse, repeat? Well, it seems that I am at a time in life where God is repeating some past lessons. It’s time for me to Read, Apply, Repeat.
The Larson family just made a major move from our home of nine years in Minnesota to Colorado. I have been amazed how God has gone before us and prepared a place for us. We have even been blessed by meeting wonderful new families and friends for the kids.
One new friend saw from an email that I have a blog. She took the time to read some of the past entries and commented on how similar we seem to be. She referred to a blog about learning to “Live in the Moment” and another about “Lean Into It.”
The move has not gone without some bumps along the way. While we waited for four extra days for the moving truck to come with our furniture, I was struck by how I needed to choose to “live in the moment” again. When talking to a new friend who moved here from Minnesota just a year ago, I was reminded to “lean into it.”
What I’m discovering is that I can read something, apply it, and then I need to repeat the same lesson. Clearly, I had read and applied these thoughts in the past. Yet, here I am in a situation where I need to go back and read, apply, and repeat the same lesson in a new situation.
I love the idea that God is not finished with me yet. I can read, apply, and repeat and He will keep working in me. Tweet about this post!
…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion…
What lesson is God repeating in your life? How can you look at it as an opportunity to grow in a positive direction instead of wishing it away?
