In my experience, I have come to understand that God is for me and not against me. I have come to realize that He is not doing to me, but He is doing for me. Because my understanding has changed, so has my perspective. With my change of perspective I have come to realize how God uses my circumstances to empower my process.
With my change of perspective I now realize that my circumstances are being used to build me up, not tear me down.
With my awareness, I have come to realize that my circumstances are being used to guide me through the opening doors of my experience. And as I walk through each door, I am always greeted by a familiar friend. Choice. Choice always reminds me that I can choose be empowered by the lessons found within my experiences.
Choice also reminds me that each circumstance — found with in my experience — is designed to be an advocate, not an adversary. Choice also reminds me that my circumstances are not meant to be gauntlets, but portals that open to opportunities. Choice then encourages me to remember that each circumstances, lesson and opportunity is leading me to my destiny.
As I continue to walk through the door — of my experiences and the portals of my opportunities – choice motivates me to trust the process. In the process, choice helps me to let go of the outcomes of my footwork — because I am told that I do not have to know or have the big picture. Choice reminds me that I can trust a loving God to guide me.
Choice reminds me that I do not have to lean on my own understanding. Choice reminds me that I can ask for help – from the God of my understanding. Choice empowers my process and my ability to trust a loving God to work all things – even the ones that I may not understand or even like at the time – together for my good.
Choice reminds me that I have hope. Choice reminds me that I have options.
Choice encourages me to keep moving in the direction of my dreams and my destiny.
“If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams and endeavor to live the life that you have imagined…you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau
