What else you can know: The certainty that we are assisted.
After spending many years in search for a more peaceful way to live through prayer, reading, classes, lectures, and seminars; I find that we all come to the same fork in the road every single day through yet another choice. Do we? First learn the lesson by living it and then help, share with others? What is most beneficial? On the other hand, do we, get the finest education possible, share, teach others what we have found is truly valuable, and or while continually learning it ourselves? Either way, we all come to this same choice every day. Every day is a new beginning, to ask God, "What else you can know?"
I have found a truth from those who can lead us. They are those who have gone through and came out of the situations that we are having difficulties with. Scripture says, “Who knows sorrow more than He who drank from the bitter cup himself.” Jesus's communication with the Father brought him out of every sorrow, despair, fear, lack, and even death. And if we are the d of Christ, or however, we may worship, wouldn't we be an example of grace that overcomes these things, with fruits, or some form of a solution?
I find it's not as easy listening to those who say they have all the answers, but nothing to show for it?! Sort of like the parable, if we have a neighbor on one side of us that has a field and hasn’t produced anything, and on the other side is another neighbor who has an abundant field. Why waste our time in asking the neighbor who hasn’t produced his field how he might help with ours? Wouldn’t it only be wise to ask those who have the abundant fields? What seeds he has sown?
I have a longing to share what has led me out of the darkness and saved my life, and for me to do this has always, and still continues to be: to live with certainty that we are assisted, and God is living it, too. Every day is our chance to sow Anew. Every day is another opportunity to ask God, "What else you can know?" And the answer will come in the form of Joy.
Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution. If you don't have any problems, you don't get any seeds.
