I’m a different person than I was in high school. In high school, unfortunately I had the, “just smart enough disease.” I was “smart enough” to get by without studying a lot or working too hard. I was definitely not the smartest in my school or even among my friends. I had little motivation to learn for learnings sake, it was just something else I had to do.
I regret that so much.
I’ve become so much more curious in the last 5 years. I can be interested in just about anything these days, except for working on cars, sorry dad. At least your new son in law likes doing that stuff.
Here’s why. The connect happened for me unfortunately once my education years were over. I began to stand in awe of God with a new found holy curiosity. Its more interesting to learn about nature when you begin to see the thumbprint of God on it. Science, art, architecture, etc. becomes so much more interesting when you see God in everything around you. You see the design, how it all works together, the creativity of the artist, its amazing to me.
God, stir in me a deeper, holy curiosity to see you and know you better as you reveal yourself to me though what you have created.
