Everyday, we faced with simple tasks like what to wear or what to eat. We all have been in a crossroad of making important decisions that eventually would alter our situation. Some decisions like what you want to major in college or if you would continue your parents business, whom to date, to get married or stay single, to adopt a child or have children.
We make decisions based on what we feel is is best for the present situation. Some factors are monetary, health or strength. The choices we make then will definitely have an impact. Not only does it affect our lives it affects others too. The choices we make have a domino effect like where we to the school, who we develop lifelong relationships or how we touch some ones life.
If we choose to smile when we react to the impatient lady in the queue. If we choose to ignore that person that frown upon us. If we help a person who wronged us, our actions reflect who we are, in tough situations. When we are tired, can we still manage to put on a smile? When our boss is unfair to us, can we still perform our jobs diligently,? Or do we retaliate and mask our sorrow by being mean all day.
We make plans but only God’s perfect will prevail. When we ask God, our father, for something will he not give a scorpion? We worship God as we pray for He knows our desires before we even ask. We seek for wisdom to know if the gifts will hinder our relationship with God. We shouldn’t feel bad for anything that God has given us. May it be something we want or not. God knows our hearts if we are truly grateful. He knows if our hearts are full of arrogance and self centeredness.
When no one is looking, are we doing the right thing? Are we honoring God with our thoughts? How we spend our time? Is the way I perform my job honoring him?
It doesn’t matter what career we choose, what our zip code is, or if we choose to be single or marry. God lead us in situations that may be out of our comfort zone.
As we seek God, we build a relationship with Him, we do little things for his kingdom. He will take care of the big things. As the song goes, For His strength begins when our’s end.
