Fear of being a widow caused me to say, "I can't do such and such, I'm a widow and don't know how." Fear tried to make me dependent on people to help me over and over with the same daunting task and not step out on my own.
That was not embracing this new season of my life.
There's nothing wrong with placing myself under qualified tutelage to acquire knowledge and skill to become competent in areas of unfamiliarity.
Ever notice why we all operate in different gifts?
It's to help each other.
Proverbs 1:5~~A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
Romans 12:6~~Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them....
Learning one task gives me freedom to move on to the next one.
Learning something new is always a good goal.
