I accepted defeat before I was defeated. There is little time left to attempt victory, even a stalemate.
Now I can ‘learn from my mistakes’ and ‘do better next time’ and ‘try harder next time.’
Or work really hard and still do mediocre.
This is last time’s next time. When will I actually try harder? When will I actually do better? When will I learn?
We were playing basketball yesterday, and shooting is typically better for me because when I learned to play I could never drive passed Bobby, I always had to shoot over him. But no shots were falling yesterday. I drove a few times and was surprisingly successful, but I still relied on shooting even though I kept on missing. I saw the situation, saw how I was failing, and did not think to try modify my strategy. I did not learn from the situation.
I learned now, but that is like learning to live when dead.
Every job I have interviewed for I have gotten, every time I have needed a job I have gotten one.
It seems it will not be so simple this summer, but why should I doubt God will provide?
