Day 102- Ross Township, Pennsylvania: Fork in the Road
In life there are particular moments from which we ask God to bless us. Especially when we get to a point where we must ultimately decide what direction we must go in. We may ask ourselves, how did we get ourselves into these stressful and difficult positions anyway? The way that we do this is by not trusting God in the first place. We put ourselves inside the boat and push off shore on our own. God is with us in those moments, but we are the ones who are pulling the strings. We have to do a self-evaluation of our own actions and beg for God’s forgiveness for the mistakes that we have made, in order for us to be completely healed.
It is extremely difficult to pull ourselves out of the well and back into God’s light once we go down a path that we later regret. Luckily, God will throw us the rope to pull us up and away from the danger in our lives if we simply repent and ask for his mercy. The direction that we are going in all depends on the decision that we make to either listen to God in order to walk forward or if we choose to listen to satan as we go back when we are at the fork in the road. Sometimes, we make the right decision and other times we make a decision that we later regret. There is always a learning experience in every event of our lives! We can make it a whole lot easier on ourselves if we simply obey God.
How do we know what the right decision is in those critical moments? In a world filled with decisions it seems sometimes like we are doomed no matter what decision that we make. This can be very troubling and uneasy to accept. However, we must always remember for every bad day there are 20 good days ahead on the horizon. Now is not the time to quit or to give up! We have come so far in our lives that only a fool would quit on God and take the road to hell out of frustration, guilt, anger, or any other feeling associated with giving up on ourselves when we have so many blessings to share with the world.
