I shall yet learn, and grow beyond the immaturity of adulthood. I shall again laugh, and learn the wisdom of a child.

Okay, Father, I suppose I am feeling a little better now, thank you. I still feel a lot of shame and general emotional turmoil, and there is still my greatest fear looming over my head, causing me to question all things in my future, but at least my clothes are clean and I have gotten out of the camper for a little bit. AND we even got to talk to an awesome dude who was perhaps the most interesting person I’ve met this time around in Texas. It was refreshing to see someone spiritually searching — as their primary goal in life rather than just as something on their TO DO list like most searchers seem to be, lol. And I couldn’t believe my Mate said I was “simple” — LOL — he usually kinda gets onto me for being so complex and hard to figure out! But ya know, I guess when it comes to spiritual things, I really AM simple. I don’t question what is the truth, I just KNOW that your Word is Truth, simple as that. I have an awesome faithful Shepherd who takes care of ALL my needs. Thank you for your patience with little me, Lord — and please keep helping me, so that I don’t mess things up or make them any worse. Thank you, Lord. I trust you completely. Amen.

1 John 2:27 ERV

Christ gave you a special gift. You still have this gift in you. So you don’t need anyone to teach you. The gift he gave you teaches you about everything. It is a true gift, not a false one. So continue to live in Christ, as his gift taught you. 

Matthew 13:52 ERV

Then Jesus said to the followers, “So every teacher of the law who has learned about God’s kingdom has some new things to teach. He is like the owner of a house. He has new things and old things saved in that house. And he brings out the new with the old.” 

Proverbs 1:1-7 ERV

These are the proverbs of Solomon, the son of David and king of Israel. 
They will help you learn to be wise, to accept correction, and to understand wise sayings. 
They will teach you to develop your mind in the right way. You will learn to do what is right and to be honest and fair. 
These proverbs will make even those without education smart. They will teach young people what they need to know and how to use what they have learned. 
Even the wise could become wiser by listening to these proverbs. They will gain understanding and learn to solve difficult problems. 
These sayings will help you understand proverbs, stories with hidden meanings, words of the wise, and other difficult sayings. 
Knowledge begins with fear and respect for the LORD, but stubborn fools hate wisdom and refuse to learn.
