I have been very open about the fact that I have very strong Spiritual beliefs. I believe in God, I believe there is an after life. I lean heavily on that belief system, it helps and comforts me tremendously. I take time every day to thank God for all that I have in my life, for the fact that I still have life. Is my life a perfect picture of the way I would like it to be, NO. Daily I pray, I place myself in God’s hands asking that His will be done in all parts of my life and here I am. God has granted me extra time on this earth, time beyond anything the doctors thought I would have. Father, I thank you so much.
As best I can I am trying to use this time to grow as a person. It is a struggle as I seem to be a slow learner at somethings. I heard or read, “you are never a loser as long as you keep trying.” I believe that God with His infinite love and wisdom, knows we are but human. We have the strengths and the weaknesses that come with being human. I do not believe He expects us to be perfect but maybe He hopes at least we will keep trying to grow, to become better people.
When I talk about growing as a person, I am talking about growing spiritually and emotionally. Daily we are faced with decisions, some big, some small. As a decision is required we obviously have 2 or more options to choose from.How do we decide, do we take the easiest way or do we take what we know inside to be the right way. Do we take the high road or do we take the low road, just because it is easier? Do only major big decision affect our lives or can even the smallest play a part?
I can look back over my life and see so very many times, I took the easy way. At the time I could always justify it as: I am too tired, or I am too busy to deal with this.I will just take the easy way out “this time”. That is a very slippery slope we are all on. It is so very easy for: “I will take the easy way out, this time” to become out norm and somehow without even being aware of it become every time.
I and I alone am in charge of my life and I and I alone am responsible for my life. I and I alone am responsible for the inner self that will one day face Our Father in Heaven. When I do that, the condition of the inner me, the me that will face our Father is in my hands, NOW. We can excuse or rationalize things away here on earth.I don’t think those same excuses may seem to be as valid at that time. What do you think?
I pray daily, often numerous times through the day. I have a regular routine when it comes to writing anything here. I pray for guidance, I pray for the words that may help someone, anyone. Prayers are answered.
