The Impossibility Of One

Posted on Oct 14, 2014

When I was younger, I used to think I could do everything on my own.

If I worked harder than anyone, didn’t give up, and studied constantly, I could be better. Or, at least, I could be just as good..

All you have to do is learn how to do what everyone does, and do that..

But as you get older, you start to learn you need help. You start to learn that maybe even others worked harder than you, so best of luck ever getting to be as good as the whole of them at each individual thing they do.

It’s the folly of life. We think we can do it all on our own.

But there is a team for a reason. Because, when we come together, we can bring our own individual talents, and we can unite them together to make something greater than any individual could, no matter how hard they tried..

That last part was the hardest part to believe, but after many years of trying I can confirm it’s legitimacy..

Don’t make life an impossible up-hill battle. There are talented and gifted people around you who want to help you and bless you.

Be united.

Accident Ahead

Posted on Sep 19, 2014

Google Maps is telling you there’s an accident. Wait, you want me to go HOW far out of my way to avoid it? There’s no way that’s faster.

Well, it probably is.

Probably.

There’s always that thought in the back of your head, “maybe it’s all cleared up by now”.

What do you do?

Sometimes there’s only instant gratification in your wrong answer. To go get caught up in the traffic means “yeah, I should’ve gone that other way.”

———–

The reward of righteousness isn’t always easy/obvious. Often we learn by doing, and we’re left thinking “oh yah, *that’s* why God has it that way.

Learning the hard way isn’t always easy.

Sometimes it’s just best to trust Go…..ogle Maps.
