Things I definitely know to be true


When I first started blogging publicly, I said I would blog about things I'm learning, and some stuff I haven't figured out yet and am not sure I ever will. Along my life's journey, I have learned a few things to be definitely true so far. Here are a few:


I am definitely sure that Jesus is everything. Just had to say that up front although it should go without saying.

A few other things...

I definitely know we find meaning and purpose in learning to serve Jesus and others.

I definitely know I was created to be a Wonder Woman. (I believe everybody is created to be a Wonder Woman or Superman, but many don't go for it, it's that simple.)

I definitely know the joy of the Lord must be one's strength to succeed.

I definitely know all it takes to be above average is to serve. Really. It's that simple.

I definitely know there's nothing like the affection of those important to you.

I definitely know the value of loyalty.

I definitely know that time really DOES fly when you're having fun.


I definitely know that when people can't keep up with you, the thing they most quickly do is criticize you.

I definitely know there is something about maturity through life experience that can't be faked.

I definitely know the power of the Holy Ghost is so important.

I definitely know the value of a good friend you can pour your heart out to without explaining.

I definitely know how important my role is in my kid's lives. If I screw up, it really will affect them, for a really long time - possibly forever. That doesn't mean I don't make mistakes or have faults but I've learned the most important thing when that happens is to own the mistakes - apologize - admit failure when I need to.

I definitely know that if you don't know who you are somebody will be glad to tell you who they think you should be.

I definitely know that the more you hoard the less you have.

I definitely know that eagles are rare - and they don't flock - as someone once said, you have to find them one at a time.

I definitely know that destiny is not just "somewhere in the future" but God intended destiny to be lived out TODAY. I am making my destiny today by the everyday small choices I make. Destiny is right now, IN THIS MOMENT. Right here.

I definitely know the call of God is irrevocable.

I definitely know that wisdom must be sought, it doesn't just come to you.

I definitely know that Proverbs telling us to get wisdom above all else, is surely there for a great reason.

I definitely know that God allows wrong decisions to be painful for a reason.

One great thing about serving God is that He is always teaching us. If we will allow Him to. Keep an open heart, open mind and open eyes to recieve exactly what He has for us to learn. He is the potter - we are the clay!

Thanks for sharing - Laurie
