We will see things better!
I have been on one side of a bridge and it's cloudy. Before I got to the other side of the bridge, it's clear. On a clear day, we can see much further. I would like to relate this example to that of a person who does not listen. The Bible speaks of a fool who thinks his way is right, he needs to listen.
Proverbs 12:15 New International Version
15 The way of fools seems right to them,
but the wise listen to advice.
ON A CLEAR DAY ~
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
ON A CLEAR DAY ~
Proverbs 12:1 New International Version
12 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but whoever hates correction is stupid.
We have each made our own mistakes in life. The Bible says that we all has sinned. Things in our lives might is cloudy or the wonder of it all overtakes us. Then suddenly we begin a relationship with God and it unfolds before our eyes. Day by day we grow and learn of the God's way. It takes us each to make a decision to change things in our lives. To hold onto hope, faith and a new trust in God. The clouds roll away and the sunshine becomes real to us.
Over my days of life, I haven't like correction in my life. From the youngest age I can remember, I heard words of no, stop it, go to your room or just be quiet. I did things wrong and needed to be corrected for it. Some of that correction was right and some of that was done wrong. Even to this day, I really don't like it when someone says, "I told you". The example that goes before us matters in life. It's hard when you watch your example, not being used by those you are close to. You might wonder if you lived your life correct or with the wisdom of God. We must realize that each person has his/hers own choices and free will. It is not personal, but it feels personal. It becomes time to pray and leave it with God.
I can see clearly today of days gone by for me. Many things I wish I had done different and yet I have grown from each thing in life. I wouldn't want to be anyone else in life, but me. I know that God created me for purpose and you too. Let wisdom guide you gently and move into clear thinking. That imaginary bridge of life is taking your someone clearer than today. Maybe you are in a clear place of life and you can see God working in your life. Then pass this blog onto someone who needs to know that their life matters and their example matters.
I have a friend who is so negative. Even over Facebook all their troubles seems to pour out inside of one thing positive. You might not know this, but your example over Facebook matters too. It's okay to be negative a little because we are being real, but don't let the negative of life out weigh the positive. There is so much to be thankful for in our lives. Some days are just hard and my prayers continue for each of you who read this, your family and friends. Thank you for taking your time to connect with me and these words that go further than you know. YOU ARE IMPORTANT and so is your time. I value that and pray this day is amazing for you!
There is an old song that says, "we will understand it better bye and bye". There are still things I don't understand why of in life, but I won't let that stop me from believing big and holding onto greater things ahead. I'm crossing a bridge of change and staying on the path that is straight. Things are becoming clearer as I continue living in today.
