Life Lessons


How do we consistently embrace God’s simple, enlightened life lessons?  What divine directions does the Holy Spirit give to each of us?  Let us explore the inner workings of life lessons.

Early morning, I arise and begin to wonder about many things.  Trying to avoid “pit patting” about the house, I quiet my anxious heart.  The Holy silence captivates my soul as I peacefully breathe in God’s brand new day.  His pupil is ready to seek a course of sacred instructions.  It is an educational dialogue with the God of salvation about why, who, when, or what the life’s day will present.  Time to embrace a service of sweet worship.

David prayed, “God teach me lessons for living so I can stay the course.”  {Psalm 119:33, The Message Bible}.  Spiritual life lessons are composed of truths birthed from a relationship with God and from experiences with Him.  These principles and insights taught and learned about God, relationships, problems, temptations, success, and every aspect of life greatly support our ability to walk in faith and victory.  It is difficult in our own strength. So, we must learn God’s ways and make it stick.  Begin to recognize and maintain the Holy Spirit’s life lessons.   Your God-designed heart will thrive.

December 12, 2009, I broke both wrists and dislocated the left wrist.  The medical x-rays revealed that my bones were now the consistency of oatmeal.  “God, I cannot fix this,” was my first heart’s cry.  I acknowledged my severe weakness and the glaring facts that physically I could do absolutely nothing about the quality of my life.  During this testing of God, I grasped a renewed wisdom; an in-my-face awareness of things I thought I knew prior to the tennis accident but divinely did not know as you can read below:


  • Wrists are a vital part of the body.
  • We are fearfully and wonderfully made, Psalm 139:14.
  • I faithfully learned to live during a season of listening and humility in Abba Father’s love, teachings, and healing care.
  • My husband’s agape love dramatically rose up within him as a mighty man of valor and priest of our home.
  • The effectual fervent prayers of the righteous availeth much, James 5:16.
  • I gratefully observed the helpers, visitors, cooks and the various Green Pastures Christian ministries the Lord timely brought into my life.
  • The power of personal prayer, praise, and worship wrought miracles.
  • Holy Scriptures are rivers of life that I recalled for times of refreshing.
  • God is mighty to save.

God healed and made me whole without surgery.  The good Lord gave me new bones.  Upon my initial return to tennis, the Decatur Divas won the Division Championship by 1 point from the winning match that I played.  Divine Redemption! God gave me keener tennis skills and I learned not to go backwards.

Life Lesson:  God’s children are not designed to go backwards or live in the past.  Our spiritual DNA mandates moving forward to Advance the Kingdom of God.

Please be encouraged.  Always seek the Wonderful Counselor’s divine plans, messages, and thoughts for life lessons.  The Lord Jesus came to His people on earth to impart radical knowledge and demonstrate miraculous skills. He is the Teacher of teachers.  The Pupil of pupils.  When we operate in the strength of the Lord Jesus Christ, we live a very smart life.  Creatively love mastering the commitment to obediently follow God’s commands.  High-spirited rewards exist – a whole life of one long obedient response, “Yes Lord.”  A Christian life clearly booming with discipline, patience, joy, peace, healing, faithfulness, love, steadfastness, forgiveness, beauty, mercy, and favorable privileges.
