I wish I was smarter

I reached back all the way to 07 for this one.  I am re-reading some old stuff to check on growth and such. still growing check, was not completely off base mostly check.

*******

So I wish I smarter!!

That is not my primary wish but that is on a long list of things I call my almost impossible wish list. There is a laundry list of things I wish I could change about myself.

  • Smarter
  • Taller
  • Sing
  • Play an instrument
  • Memorize scripture better
  • Fly

While there is a list of things I wish I could change I know that some of these things will not change. I know I will ever be able to fly or get taller and quite possibly never be able to sing but there are things I know can change. That is where I have to start; in the things that can change. I have to come to the point where I can say and believe “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13. I have to get to the point where I believe that and I understand it.

Too many times I have heard that or read it and thought I can do “all things”. But it is not saying I can do all things in the normal worldly sense not it is saying I can do all things God wants me to do. I like to think that it would be nice to be able to say “God I want this and I want that” but He is not my spiritual wishing well. If you noticed I said “I like to think” I say that because I know that it is not true, I know that is not how it works and most of me is glad about this. It is nice knowing that I have my limitations and boundaries because that helps me grow and growth is a goal I can achieve (not on my own strength of course). I like knowing that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, and I like knowing that it is according to His Divine plan and not my selfish ambitions.

Just a thought,

Mike
