I love french fries. I could eat them every day and probably every meal too, especially when they are seasoned just right. To make it even better, I love eating them “the Dutch way” which to me means with a little mayo.Those Dutch people are brilliant! But if every time I ate a meal, I went with my feelings and ate them...I bet in a 2-3years I’d die of a heart attack after watching my health decline quickly. Instead, when I sit down to a meal 9 out of 10 times I choose a healthy meal because I am desiring to be healthy and I want to live a long life. I am making choices that benefit my wellbeing and not my feelings.
Something that I've been feeling lately is this urgency for this generation to put an end to entertaining things that are below our callings. We spend our lives chasing the crowd, trying so hard to fit in. but I wonder how many of us will look back one day and realize that we were never created to blend in. I've been realizing that my goal in this life is to constantly position myself so as God pours Himself out, I'm in the right place to receive it. How many times do we think God isn't showing up and not giving us what we ask when really we aren't in alignment so we are actually missing the moment. I wonder how many times I've thought He was silent when really I wasn't taking time to listen. I wasn't making a sacrifice to turn off the TV or radio and I missed His voice. We were created with purpose, vision, and destiny. So everything we do, every choice we make is to be decided with the knowledge of who we are.
