8.15.2020 – Soaking it up like a sponge…

I was doing some studying the other day, and there was this “thing” in me —this sort of “drive” within me that made me want to soak everything up like a sponge. 👩🏻‍💻💖✨

It was this kind of hunger and excitement about digging into and absorbing the subject I was learning about… I honestly haven’t experienced that kind of feeling in response to “learning” in quite a while.

Can a person have a “giddiness” about learning something? Because that’s what it felt like. ✨ It felt like….

“Oh my goodness…. I’VE MADE SOME KIND OF A DISCOVERY HERE…THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN SO DESIRING TO LEARN ABOUT AND I’VE FOUND IT! I FEEL AS THOUGH I MUST HAVE BEEN CRAVING THIS FOR A LONG TIME! …I’M GOING TO LEARN THIS NOW!”

I never felt this way in school! 😆 haha It was more like, “Let’s get me through this day and get outta here!”

I have never really considered myself much of a “learner”…. never thought I was very good at learning things.

But if I’m really interested and drawn to the subject, now that’s a completely different story. 💖✍🏻✨

And I know that I couldn’t have put this level of drive, this kind of enthusiasm, this kind of desire to soak up every single word of the lesson…I realize I couldn’t have put that in my heart….

I know it has to be the Lord. ☀️

So thank You Father! Thank You for the times You ignite things like this within us, and we can realize and know that it’s You! You’re the one who led me to this… You put that desire and that drive in me to dig and discover and seek and find and soak up what You’re teaching me… like a sponge! You were the One leading me to this very thing….all along! And I can’t get over the excitement of it.

God, I’m thankful for this hunger that feels “alive” in me…a hunger for more of You, and understanding You, and I know I couldn’t have mustered it up myself.

God, You’re fascinating. 🥰

Thank You, Father. 💖✨
