Day 105- Squirrel Hill, Pennsylvania: Not Worrying About Others Negatively
God teaches us to focus on our actions and not the actions of others. When we allow ourselves to follow the activity of others and try to compare ourselves to what someone else is doing we are not putting our best foot forward. We are allowing our actions to be controlled by the actions of another person. This can cause us to feel resentful towards others and these actions can also take away from the love that God has for us.
The decisions that we make can come from a place of peace or a place of hate and anger. When we rush to false judgment worrying about others, we usually end up making irrational choices that limit our ability to be successful. Having obstacles placed in front of us by God usually is a sign that maybe the actions we are about to take will lead us down a path that we should not be going down. When you have that gut feeling about something is wrong, there is usually a good reason why God is putting that on our hearts.
It is sad when we ignore these signs and we fall on our face out of pride while ignoring the safety net God is attempting to place before us, so that we do not get hurt or injured. God is always making clear the path for us; like a fullback in football leading the way for the running back to have a better chance of success as they approach the line of scrimmage without being tackled. God wants us to have a clear runway for takeoff and provides the tools necessary for us to be successful. Sometimes we fall into the traps of life and wonder how we will recover. The way that we will recuperate to move forward in life is by focusing on what we have to do everyday, and also by allowing God to work with us so that we may reach the highest pinnacle attainable.
