When you do something long enough you gain experience. It’s through experience that we gain knowledge and ability to do things. People grow as they gain experience, knowledge and abilities. We become better versions of ourselves as we do things that we enjoy and fill our soul and enrich our lives. Enjoy the process.
We are all on a journey of one sort or another. Spiritual, emotional, physical, etc. A shared experience can be a great way to help each other out. God bless you all in that search.
When it comes down to it we are all dorks. Some are more experienced than the others.
Experience is the most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God, do you learn.
There might be a fine line between being helpful and being a know it all. We all feel like that at times. Experience can benefit us but it can also work against us. Just a observation I just made.
People are experiencing life in different ways these days. People I know remember Pearl Harbor while others remember 9/11. The way we share in those events has changed over the years. Technology has given us hundreds of channels on TV when at one point we had 3 channels so we were limited to what we could watch. Then there is the Internet and that changed all the rules.
In Church this morning Pastor Amy talked about how the stories of our lives are linked to common experiences. The most important part is how God can bring his people together so we can share in it. He is the Lord of all time and space. From my perspective he has carried me through some tough times including personal loss. Without Him I wouldn’t have the things I have now. I am grateful for that.
Those experiences in life can prepare you for what’s to come. It tests your mettle. It can also bond you with people who have gone through it too. Communities can be built from crisis but they can also be torn apart. I pray that each person will find that thing that they can hold on to and will bring you closer together.
