I’d like to know how to learn the easy way for a change

I’ve been asking God to direct me instead of trying to change myself in my own strength. I acted like a jerk this week and apologized to my team members today. I’ve always thought that learning the easy way would be the best. You know what I mean. Learn from the lessons found in the Bible. Learn from others’ failure so I don’t repeat their mistakes.

Instead my syllabus seems to be: Crash, Burn, Apologize.

I am asking God for wisdom. He loves to give wisdom. (See The Book of James in the Bible). I’m also asking that I realize the wisdom is His and not from me lest I get proud again. I think living in wisdom is the same as living in reality – God’s true reality – not my distorted, twisted, self-serving “reality of lies.”

There is nothing to puff me up if I am living in real reality (God’s reality). And the consequences of error are seen upfront and I side-step the error, thus sparing the Crash, Burn and Apologize drama.

How do I get to God’s reality?

Humble myself.

God, I can’t do it myself. Please be my everything.

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.

  1. 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

    7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

    8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
    Philippians 4:6-9
