My thoughts tonight: You can't force someone to get to where you want them to be; even if what you want to share with them is incredible and life changing. They have to get there on their own. They have to make the journey themselves so when they get there it will mean so much more; it will be their's.
Then my thoughts jumped to Heavenly Father and how often he must be wanting and longing for us to get to that next level where He can teach us and share more light and knowledge, so that we can have more joy and depth and greater understanding and perspective. But He will not force us there. He will wait patiently while we work at our own pace to that next level. And He'll smile as we stand in awe when we finally get there and say to ourselves, "Why didn't I get here sooner!?" : )
It makes me wonder what levels He is excited for me to reach and wants to share with me next. I want to work to get there. I'm excited for when I can spend a day in His classroom. And I'll wait patiently too for those I love and want so badly to reach new levels and find their own way there. I pray that they will.
I love how He teaches me.
