Life has a way of taking turns and twists that we didn't expect.
God has a way of speaking to us and directing us where we need to go and to what we should or shouldn't do. IF (and that's a BIG if) we choose to listen to him when he speaks. However that is the catch CHOICE...one thing we all have, one thing we sometimes don't want even if we never want to admit that.
I know that God has tests, trials and tribulations for us...After all he says it in James 1:2-6
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perserverance. Perseverane must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. "
So what will you & I CHOOSE to do with this, rejoice even in the sometimes pain of the 3T's, learn from these 3T's, contiue on down the same path?
It's up to you (or me) since God is a gentleman, and will attempt to teach us, but it is our choice to learn, listen, grow, move...and all that.
Me....I know what I want to do...follow God and his way...the question is, do I always choose it? Do you?
