Yesterday life ran from extreme anger, to frustration, and on to pure excitement. On reflection, I concluded that everything I had seen during was through the eyes of self-pity. My life was difficult due to the lazy habits of others. The challengers were higher because some refused to listen to wise counsel. Good things were happening due to my pursuit of the real story; however, product instructions could be clear to begin with. Everything revolved around “me”. It was my happiness, the ease in winning the game before me, and getting to the head of the line that counted!
Without wanting to be too critical, self-pity is the worse kind of dribble! The good news that is seems all rather ridiculous and funny in the morning.
Everyone is offering you and I a way out. As hard as it is to pick the right direction, “you don't want to end your life full of regrets, nothing but sin and bones, saying “Oh, why didn't I do what they told me? Why did I reject a disciplined life?” (Proverbs 5.11,12) So what should you and I do?
We already have the answer. The first understanding is that I have doubts. I do not understand why, but the reality is that they exist. Second, I know what I want to do about this. Third, pursuing my choice does not mean that I will not circle back to a day of doubts and pity. I probably will, but that only makes me more determined to do something now!
I am going to pursue the one relationship that provides answers, direction, and results that stand all tests. I am going after the Divine, the almighty, and the one and true God. It is either God or bust! Nothing is going to get in the way. Self-pity is banished! Criticism towards others – abandoned! Climbing over others is not an option!
Will I fail? Probably. The good news is that your God and mine is here to start all over again. He is full of grace, mercy, love and no pre-conditions!
