There are two ways to get lessons about life.
You either look for them, or they will find you.
Either way, they want to be learned. If you don't learn the precious lessons related to your life, they'll keep coming back until you do. In my experience, this is not often at the most opportune time.
Life is not a game of hide and seek; it's a journey of blindness and discovery. Once we did not see, but now we do see. Our sight is not as the world sees. For we see by His Spirit, freely given to us by His grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ..
When fully participating in this adventurous journey called life, we can truly understand why David said in Psalm 23, "my cup overflows." When we ask, seek, and knock it will given to us, we will find, and doors will appear and fly open for us to enter a new phase of the Christian life. They may not be the doors we expected, but they are probably more than we could have asked or imagined.
On the other hand, if we resist this divine journey, whether by hanging on to the past, or by traveling in our own selfish direction, we will likely meet frustration and lack of fulfillment. We might find ourselves not being who we want to be, and certainly not who God created us to be. We might get what we strove for only find ourselves empty and regretting the loss of precious time.
The rewards of absorbing life's lessons are sweet as honey. Lessons that are profound, life-changing, even spiritual are "revelations." You, too, can intentionally experience joyful revelations in your life when you learn to embrace all that God has made of you.
