Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. -Albert Einstein (1879-1955)I often get teased a lot about how horrible my handwriting is. When I was little, I used to get really worried about this and I worked hard to change it or improve it.
But I was doing the same I used to do, I just kept writing and writing but my writing wasn’t making my handwriting perfect. I was doing the same thing the same way and expecting an improved hand-writing.
Then one day, I discovered that two things affect my handwriting: my emotional state and the color of ink I used.
When I am nervous, sad or emotionally down, my handwriting is terrible. But when I’m elated, my writing is good. Also, when I use blue pen, my handwriting isn’t always the best, but a black pen is a good thing for my writing all the time.
Are you studying hard to pass that exam but still forgetting to ask god for His wisdom, understanding, direction and favour?
Are you trying to stop that alcohol addiction but still going out and mixing with the wrong crowd? Are you striving to grow spiritually but still slack in studying your Bible and building your relationship with God through prayer?
Stop trying the same thing over and over, try out a different method. Ask God to open your eyes of understanding for God is the God of all wisdom, knowledge and understanding regarding every matter.
