Life lesson: NEVER GIVE UP

Life Lessons –

What is a life lesson you feel everyone can benefit from? There is an abundance of lessons you go through in life. What we learn from them is up to us. Life lessons are sometimes referred to as valuable experiences. A life lesson is something from which useful knowledge or principles can be learned. Have you ever learned a lesson from your life you wish you could pass on to others? Perhaps, so they will not make the same mistakes, or possibly for them to gain insights from lessons you have learned.

Types of lessons one can learn in life are numerous. Most of our important life lessons we tend to learn the hard way. We often make mistakes, make choices we later regret, but if we learn from them then it becomes valuable. The following is a few examples of the possible lessons we could learn.

  1. Walk your own path…be yourself
  2. Don’t hesitate when you should act…take the risk
  3. Experience what you have learned…
  4. Good things do not come easy…
  5. Never fail to try more…. keep trying
  6. Take care of your health early….
  7. Make every moment count…. Don’t waste it
  8. Live and let live….
Past has no power

One of the lessons I am continually learning comes from the Bible. That is to always trust God.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And he shall direct your paths.”

Proverbs 3:5-6
Proverbs 3:5-6

What does that mean, to trust in the Lord? It basically means that we/I should not depend upon ourselves, on what we/I know, but trust God with all our hearts. We might not know what his plan is, however, it is usually better than any plan we develop ourselves. I need to include God in everything I say and do. In doing so, he helps give me the right words to say or lets me know what the best course of action I should be taking. Our/my mistakes, wrong choices are often made when I leave God out of the planning and don’t trust that He knows everything. His wisdom is far greater than mine.

Other lessons I feel everyone can benefit from are:

  • Never Give Up.…you may struggle, but never quit. Keep trying
  • Stay focused on your dreams, who you want to be
  • Be strong when you are weak, Brave when you are afraid, and Humble when you are victorious.
  • The most valuable relationship one can have is with Jesus Christ.
  • Alway be grateful for the good things in your life.

Thomas Edison stated: “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
Thomas Edison

Enjoy living your life. Remember to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love; it is a privilege to be alive. Pass on what you learn to others. Be an inspiration. Have the courage to let go of the past, you cannot change it. You can only change yourself. You cannot change the world, but you can be a small influence in someone else’s life. The world will change by the small ripples we create.

God bless. Trust in the Lord. He will never fail you. I appreciate y’all. Be sure to like, comment, and follow.
