“The calming presence is still with me. “What direction do I take? It is so dark. I cannot see where I am going.” The presence replies; “Just follow me. I will lead you to where you need to go. I will light the way if you allow it.” I kept walking. I let the Him lead. I had no choice but to trust that I was going the right way. The figure saved me from the monster. He had to be trustworthy right? The farther we walked, my eyes began to adjust enough to see a small light forming ahead in the distance.”
We come to a point every day where we have to make a choice. Its starts from the very moment we wake up. We choose to get out of bed in the morning, to read a book, to brush our teeth and many little choices throughout the day that are ours to make. These choices , though small have a consequence that will be either good or bad. If we do not brush our teeth, we will have bad breath. If we don’t get out of bed then we will be late for work. Even reading a random book has an affect. Every choice that we make impacts our lives.
What about the things that happen where the only choice we have is to trust someone or something else? For example: A family member has found out that they have cancer and only a certain amount of time left to live. We cannot choose to take it away from them. We can’t say that we want it to go away and it just happen. The only choices at that point that are ours is to have FAITH. We have the choice to be there for them. We have the choice to pray for them. We have to have faith that there is a reason that they are going through this. We have to have faith that God knows what is going on. We have to have faith that our family member will be at peace with the situation at hand.
“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen to God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track.” ~Proverbs 3:5-6
The bible tells us that if we trust in God completely, then we will be okay. It tells us that if we allow ourselves to follow Him, that He will keep us on the right path. Our own understanding is not going to work when it comes to his will. We are not in control. God is! He will not let us fall. We can choose to try our own ways first, but before you do I ask that you think really hard about what choices in major situations that you have made that worked out the way you wanted for it to. Then think about the ways that it really turned out made an even better end result than you had thought. Think about how you felt when you first realized that specific thing that you wanted and actually got was not what you thought it would be either.
