the learning curve never stops

The learning curve

The learning curve

 

The learning curve  really never ends, does it? Unless, of course,  one chooses to stop learning.

There’s always something new to learn. And to me if we’re not learning and growing, what’s the point?

I’m sharing these thoughts with you because this has been one of those frustrating days. You know the kind. The kind where you feel like your working hard but accomplishing nothing. The wheels just keep spinning but you don’t go anywhere. I don’t like that kind of day.

I have a new i-phone and it uses the “cloud” to download pictures to one’s computer. Now I prefer the old way of plugging my phone in but I can’t figure out a way to by-pass the “cloud” to do this. (By the way, does anyone out there in blogsville, know how to do this and would you please tell me if you do?)

Anyway, I’ve been working on this for a couple of days. Yesterday I called the Apple hotline and much to my surprise the woman at the other end said to me, “You sound pretty tech savvy.” My husband howled when I told him what she said. As it turns out, maybe I kinda’ of am. I mean I was able to use words like autoplay, settings, computer panel, i-cloud, with some sort of knowledge to back it up. Anyway, we worked through it and I’m a step closer but not quite there yet.

But that got me to thinking. Isn’t it great that we can always learn something new? I find that exciting. Draining, yes, but exciting, too. I mean think about all the things to learn about in this world, the physical world, culture, people, nations, weather, politics, etc.

Even faith issues.

I’ve been a Christian most of my life. But there’s so much I don’t know. And the possibility of learning more is exciting.

I know I won’t learn it all here on this earth but I know that God promises I can know a lot. When I think of how God and Abraham were friends, I ask myself, “How do I know if God and I are friends? Does God consider us friends?”

Or what about the term “the unsaved.” What does it even mean?”

Understanding the Bible is without a doubt the steepest learning curve I’ve ever encountered. Eventually I’ll figure out this “cloud thingee” because I’m very tenacious but God, I don’t think so.

For me the hunt for knowledge is the whole point. And knowing I’ll never get to the end of God is encouraging to me. It means I’ll never overestimate what He has done in the past for me nor what He will do in the future.

God bless. I’ve got to get back on my “cloud”.
