Sometimes the choices we make are irreversible. Once we begin walking forward, we just have to keep going and never turn around. Those decisions are made slowly and methodically. Make sure you give it much thought, because you know there’s no going back. Nothing in your life will ever be the same again. You have to ask yourself if there may be a time in the future when you’d like for things to be the way they are. If the answer is no, then there’s no reason to stay where you are. That’s the only time it’s okay to take action and keep walking forward.
I’ve only done that once. I don’t care to ever do anything that painful again for the rest of my life.
I’ve learned that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I’ve learned that some broken things stay broken, and I’ve learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you. – Bobby Fulks
Sometimes decisions are made for us. Things happen in life that are completely out of our control. Life-altering experiences occur and that’s when we are left with our faith in God. We hopefully have people in our lives who love us, but we know without a doubt that we have God… and yes – He loves us. He cares and He wants to hear what our hearts are feeling. Even if what has happened leaves us frightened and angry and alone – He still wants to hear from us.
Life is a little like on the job training. We are born into this world – expected to perform at a certain level through school and receive a diploma which magically leads us to the pursuit of happiness. Right? Hang on, Sloopy… let’s back this truck up.
Stuff happens in life because not only are we just human, but the people around us are… you guessed it… human. We all have dreams and expectations once we graduate. We’re going to meet the right person to spend a lifetime with – we’re going to have this wonderful family together and we’ll fly off into fluffy white clouds in a classic car – like Danny and Sandy did at the end of the movie GREASE.
Have you ever seen a classic car fly??? I rest my case. Just as a classic car most definitely will not fly, no woman could possibly fit into that leather outfit that Sandy wears toward the end of the movie. I’m convinced that’s why most men want to watch that movie so many times. Sigh. I dunno – maybe it is to see the classic cars…
Yes, life is like on the job training; however, most jobs are dull compared to the twists and turns that life takes. When it seems your life is a rollercoaster ride, just keep in mind that Jesus sits at your side. He doesn’t need a barf bag… but there are times when you might need one. Jus’ sayin’…
The common thread throughout this topsy turvy ride of life is LOVE. Find LOVE – a connection that makes it all worthwhile. Love here on earth, of course… but know that you are loved completely by your LORD. He knows you better than anyone, and He loves you more than anyone here ever will. We need human love to hang in there. We need God’s love to make us whole and give us purpose.
Finding love on this earth is so difficult. Finding love from Heaven is so simple. 🙂
