“Teach me knowledge … ” Psalm 119:66
“I’m never going to get it, I just can’t!”
Squirmles was on another frustrated rant.
Learning to read wasn’t as easy as she thought,
She thought it would be easily taught.
She had only been trying for a day or two,
But was ready to quit and be totally through.
“I’ll never be able to read a chapter book,
I can’t read one sentence just look!”
Mom sat nearby and listened to her frustration,
She knew it would take a little more concentration.
“Learning something new isn’t easy for anyone,
But you will be so thankful when it is said and done.
“Throughout your life you will always be learning,
God gave us curiosity, an unsatisfied yearning.
There will always be something you don’t know or understand,
That’s part of what makes life so grand.
“So don’t lose heart and give up too quick,
Practice is what helps make it ‘stick.’
You’re going learn how to read,
Keep trying and you will soon succeed.”
Have you ever wanted to give up when learning something new? What is the hardest thing you’ve had to learn ?
