"Experience doesn't make you wiser. Evaluated experience makes you wiser."
Sometimes we get into repeat patterns ...
where things you thought were going to happen, don't.
Things you hoped would happen, don't.
And it seems like everything is just unraveling.
Then sometimes we are surprised --
by the beauty of our eyes opening and of finally understanding
certain things you once thought were not yours,
actually are supposed to be, after all.
Listening for that Breath of God
for that moment where He speaks
and reminds you of who you are in Him,
requires patience and pursuit.
Sometimes the patterns are there for you to notice
and change what needs to be changed.
