Hindsight is Always 20/20
Wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 24:14
I say this probably 8-10 times a day. Hindsight is always 20/20. But to be more correct, in looking back, sometimes people don’t get clarity. They don’t understand. They don’t change or they do not allow themselves to be humbled by the experience. Idn life with every experience you are supposed to get wiser. But if you don’t open yourself up to go through the situation and grow–in difficulty, stress, and strife–you can almost certainly expect to miss what you are supposed to learn. Look at the verse above: if you find wisdom, there is a future hope for you. You can help someone else, you can avoid the situation if it comes around again, you can progress into whatever comes next adequately prepared. And you can have hope. Looking back at all that I have survived and overcame just in the last 6 years, I am truly blessed. And you are too; whatever troubles and strifes that have come in your life, you are here. God saw fit to keep you here to minister to others through your success. Be encouraged and don’t give up.
Surely there is a future, And your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 23:18
