Life is an Experiment

 

It seems like life is an experiment. Why do we think we should know the answers to all of the difficulties of life? Why do we think we should know how faith is works and more specifically it connects in real life?

The medical field most accurately describes what they do when they use the term; “Practicing medicine”. That seems to be how it is with life. We’re all just practicing and trying new things when what we have done in the past failed. Even when it comes to family and relationships.

My friend Megan and I talked about that in the post; Talking With A Friend, Megan. She shared her experiences when it comes to relationships and growing. The good and the bad, we learn from it all.

Life is an experiment, just add faith. You try a few things, and you learn, you grow, and you continue to have faith that God is working on your behalf. In the end, that’s all we can really do anyway.

Why are we so afraid to fail? And what is failure anyway, but a series of steps taken toward a goal that may or may not work. If not, you keep pushing on, trusting God as you do the next thing.

And then there’s the fear of hearing the word “No”. Why are we scared to hear that word? As if that word alone has the power to bring our hopes, dreams and plans to a screeching halt. It’s just a word. It doesn’t hold the power. It may come into play when you’re shooting at a target, but you just regroup and move forward.

Why do we so desperately cling to what little we have, hoping it will multiply; when in reality, the only way for that to happen is by letting go. The law of sowing and reaping has more power than the word “No”.

Small minds thinking tiny thoughts produce small lives.

Life is an experiment.  All of it. Family, relationships, careers and all the other things that go into creating who we are.

You only get one life.

Embrace it.

Make it count.

Help another.

Because life is an experiment. It’s a hands-on, learn-as-you-go adventure.

Add some faith and enjoy the journey.
