922nd -- Professor Of Life


We should always go through life with a fresh outlook eager to learn new 
things with enthusiasm and zeal. The time that we have on this earth is 
short even though it may seem long to us in this present time. Years pass
by us that seem like only moments ago and it is for this reason that we 
should look forward to each new day with excitement, hope and an expectancy
to become better, wiser, stronger and more able than we were yesterday. 
Life is all about learning, growing and becoming better. When we look 
forward to our tomorrows, we will be receiving from it all the blessings 
that it has to offer. Tomorrow offers us new opportunities, a new chance
to learn, a new chance to teach, a new chance to build relationships and 
mend broken ones. We have tomorrow to become more than we are today, but
we must give ourselves that chance to learn, grow and change into all that
God wants for us to become. (James 4:14) (Galatians 6:9) (Psalm 37:23-26)

Never give up on yourself and think that you have no hope. Don't allow 
yourself to become so lackadaisical in life that you face each new day 
with boredom and with no appreciation for the gifts that you've been 
given. Recognize your blessings and make up your mind to face tomorrow 
with new appreciation. Learn from it, grow from it and become better 
because of it. Use every chance you have to better your life and when you
do take every opportunity before you, you will see great things take 
place. Believe in yourself again as God believes in you and great changes
will begin to happen in your life. (Psalm 146:5) (Psalm 138:7-8)

I hope this message encourages your heart to learn all that you can each 
day that you can and become better today than you were yesterday.


When I was in college I had a professor who taught me a lot not only about
English, but also about life. He taught with a joy, energy, and enthusiasm
that touched everyone in his classes. He made us laugh, he made us learn,
and he made us think as well. Here are just a few of the things that he 
taught me.

He taught me that work isn’t about getting a paycheck at the end of each 
week, it is about loving what you do and doing what you love. He taught me
not to take life so seriously and that laughter is good when facing life’s
difficulties. He showed me that life is best when lived with zest and 
vitality and that what you put into life is what you get back from it. He
showed me that the school of life is never out and that we keep learning 
everyday of our lives. He explained how everything from music, to books,
to people, to experiences can be our teachers if we are only willing to 
learn. He explained too that it is always best to learn with enthusiasm 
and to live with joy.

I was truly blessed to have had such a great teacher at such a young age.
He opened my mind and started me on the path of a lifetime’s worth of 
learning. I have tried to stay a good student of life since then. I have 
also tried to be a decent teacher as well by passing on what I have learned
in my writings and in my life. Only time will tell how good a one I have been.

In this life we are all students and we are all teachers. What we learn 
and what we teach, however, is up to us. May you always learn in enthusiasm
and in joy then. May you always teach with energy and with love as well. 
May you never stop learning what God needs you to learn and may you always
teach what God wants you to teach. I hope that you graduate this life with
honors as a Child of God and I hope that you spend all of your years here
as a Professor of love and of life.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

James 1:2-5 “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers
temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire,
wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth
to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”

Psalm 23:1-4 “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to
lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He 
restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His 
name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they 
comfort me.”

Psalm 37:23-26 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and He
delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:
for the LORD upholdeth him with His hand. I have been young, and now am 
old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging 
bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.”

Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun
a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
