It's Never Too Late to Learn Something

Monday, September 17, 2012

No matter how much we may think we know, it is never too late to learn something new! I love continually learning something new and different. Oh, sometimes it can be frustrating, but it is also extremely satisfying when you have been through the frustration and actually learned something!



Do you think you know beyond a shadow of doubt the true meaning of a certain, maybe your favorite scripture? Some time try reading and studying it from a different translation and see what you learn! No matter how many times you may read that scripture, you can always get something new and different from it…a clearer understanding! It also depends on what is going on in your life at that particular time! God is so good…He will take a familiar, favorite scripture and according to your need at the time, bring a new, fresh revelation to you from it…an answer for your current need!

Never take God for granted and never stop learning something new! Not only are you gaining knowledge, you are also exercising your brain and strengthening it! The brain just as with the body needs constant exercise to keep it strong! My husband’s grandmother was 99 when she decided to go home to be with Jesus and his mother was 93. Their minds were as sharp as when they were younger because they continually exercised them! Grandma was constantly working on the family tree, researching, studying, etc. Mom was always reading and doing needle work on quilts, etc. My Nana was 95 and she was always doing search puzzles!

God promises to satisfy us with a long life, but we have to do our part! Eat right, drink lots of water, exercise our bodies and our minds! We age but we don’t have to grow old and certainly not feeble! Remember to constantly be looking for something new to learn! Hey, you have just learned something from this Blog! Hallelujah! Be blessed!

Love and Blessings,

    Smith Wigglesworth who was one of the greatest men of God in the 20th century was a British Evangelist. He was a plumber and his wife taught him to read. The only thing he ever read was the Bible, no newspaper no book! He knew that if it was in the Bible it was true! He had one of the greatest healing ministries of all times! After meeting Jesus when I get to Heaven, I want to meet Smith Wigglesworth! If you get a chance to read any of his books do so, it will strengthen your walk with God! :)

    My Grandmother passed away at 90. Her mind was very sharp as well. She went to school for only a couple days in her life & quit. Back then, it didn't matter if they went to school or not, and she didn't like it so she quit. She taught herself to read by reading God's Word, and her mind stayed sharp with her sense of humor her whole life. God's Word does wonderful things!

    I love reading "old familiar" scriptures in a different translation, or studying using a Strong's concordance. Sometimes those "old familiars" don't say exactly what we remember them saying! lol
