Yesterday I got a piano lesson on how to teach piano. Among other things. Today, as I taught and as I practiced piano, I was applying all that I've been learning from just two piano lessons. So glad I have a new teacher, I'm learning so much. I'm so inspired to learn.
Each person has only so much knowledge they can give you, after all, and after 9 years, you've pretty much learned all you can. Right now my new teacher seems an endless well of information, but every well has a bottom. I will enjoy her while I can, and learn a much as I can from her. So far, as much as I can is a lot. :)
It's amazing how you can feel so upset about something, so unsure. You feel like your life is about to fall apart.
And then you talk to an old friend, text them a question, and they answer and say, would you like to talk on the phone?
So you call them, and for the next hour they reasure you, and speak words of both wisdom and comfort. They pray for you, on the phone, right then and there.
Your whole attitude changes. You are no longer crying at the thought of what you need to do. You feel suddenly brave, you remember God is on your side, holding your hand. It's not like you forgot, just now you really feel it, you're really trusting. And you suddenly realize you can do what you need to, you know what needs to be done, you know what needs to be said. And whatever the outcome, it is for the very best. Holding on hurts more in the long run. You can do this.
