I wrote this November 17, 2018 and the lesson still remains true.

As I’ve gone through this journey, I’ve shared what I’ve learned. At one point I was writing a blog. There are things I wrote that I now see were not quite accurate. It was only one side of a coin. It’s ok to realize you were wrong. It’s ok to admit it. It’s how we learn and grow. What’s not ok is being unteachable.
There’s no wisdom in thinking we are right and refusing to back down. There’s judgements and criticism we have and offer when we don’t understand something.
There were aspects about leading an assembly I had no clue what I was talking about until now. There are things I was wrong and was unwise about. It’s like someone who has no kids judging a parent on how they raise their kids. Clearly there are obvious truths that apply to everyone, but there are certain things that shouldn’t be uttered because the truth is, we have no idea. Someone who has no kids needs to be wise about certain judgements and criticism because the truth is they really don’t know both sides of that coin.
That’s how I was. Judging and criticizing certain things about pastors and church leaders bc I didn’t have both sides to a coin.
There are truths that remain true no matter what perspective you have, but there are some you have no clue until you actually experience it.
The key is to be teachable.
Have a heart that seeks.
I don’t have all the answers. I never will. I’m ok with that because my Father does and I have full access to go to Him every time I need.
I wanted everyone who takes the time to read my posts to know that I’m not always right and I’m not ashamed to admit it – because I’m always learning and growing.
I’ve had conversations with people who haven’t agreed with me and I do listen. Thank you to those who care enough to share their positions in a loving and open manner.
Jesus has taught me so much. He continues to teach me and I know it will be a life time of learning. Good thing I love to learn 😬😊
I love you all. Loving isn’t always easy, but Jesus made it possible. ❤️
