Walking through life

When we walk, we are finding ourselves moving into the direction that we choose. When we make our choice we are doing what pleases us. There is nothing wrong about finding what makes us happy. It's part of free will. Free will seems like a complicated thing to conceive but truly its not. Our desire is to please every area of our lives, whether its our self-esteem or just the desire to be lazy. We often take the time to choose what is comfortable in our lives just to avoid anything that may seem a little out of the way. The bible is clear in this matter: "Everything is permissible"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"—but not everything is constructive. - 1 Corinthians 10:23

Our journey through life is about discovery, from the first notice of hands and feet as a child to deciding which person to spend our lives with. We make decisions that mold our future based on our needs or wants. Does your wants really have to be meet? Or can you be completely content with what you need? Some people tend to discuss whether or not it is wrong to do certain things. I mean why would we choose something that hurts us? Could it be that we have given ourselves enough evidence that what we want is perfectly ok? If this is the case, how come when we chose to do something we want and it fails we blame it on God?

To think we have the option and we choose things that can hurt us. God loves you so much that He is willing to give it all to you when you are truly ready to honor that relationship.

Are you ready to see what God's plan is truly for your life?

Lord, please give me the strength and courage to say no to my old ways and yes to what your plan is. Thank you for loving us even through our worse times. In Jesus name, Amen.
