Day 164- Atlanta, Georgia: Just Do It
Why does it take us so long for us to realize that what we do right or wrong has consequences? We can only get away with certain mischievous behavior for so long before it catches up to us. God has a way of alerting us when we are near the point of no return when we sin excessively and at will, doesn’t He? If we just follow the signs from Jesus, as He is always pointing us in the right direction, we will avoid being in those situations where we fall on our face.
Doesn’t there eventually come a point in our lives where we just wake up one day understanding the pain we have caused, as we further comprehend the missed opportunities that we have had. We ultimately wish in those moments that we would have made another decision than the one that we did when faced with grief, which led us away from God to begin with? The good news is that it is not too late for us. When this happens is usually when we set out on a committed road to recovery in our mind, with a higher sense of urgency to obey God. In this moment is when we have to “Just Do It”.
What does this mean, we may ask ourselves? What it means is that we make up our minds to do the right thing moving forward, as we vow to avoid taking the easy way out when temptation comes along. We are better than sin and we are better than a life full of misery. God marked us for greatness and to have all of the riches of Heaven within our reach. We just have to allow God to work in every aspect of our lives.
The times for excuses are over. Today is the day that we take control of our decisions and we start truly listening as God intervenes on our behalf. Today is the day where we ask God to forgive us and strive for positive change that flows from us like a river of peace to inspire those around us. Today is the day we work together as a community of sinners, striving for perfection with God.
