Trust or Not to Trust
Should you trust others? Do you have all the facts? Do you have circumstantial evidence? Is it hearsay? Do you keep your thoughts in your head for a bit, pray about it, then speak up? Do you gossip? Do you put yourself in vulnerable situations? Does everyone have all the facts. There are people that watch, listen and hear what they are being told and not even know if it’s true or not.
I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison, as the high priest and all the councils can themselves testify. I even obtained letters from them to their associates in Damascus, and went there to bring these people as prisoners to Jerusalem to be punished. Acts 22:4-5
You never know when your life will start over but, it does start over, it starts over all the time. Why? Because, we choose to repent and ask for forgiveness. We must try and keep a positive attitude, by thinking today is a new day, all things are new in it! Amen! It’s a new day, meaning it is a fresh do over or start over! Everyday, is a fresh new start, because you can never say it is tomorrow, because in reality it is today. But, you can also choose to look and live your life in the rear view mirror, which means you won’t be moving forward. We must move forward in life, seeking and walking. We will not be running, because hastiness will cause havoc, I know that all too well. My father had a nickname for me, he would say slow down ‘hurricane’! Because, I would never do anything slow! Why follow directions? I had to learn how to slow down (took till my 40’s) otherwise, you may miss the turn you were supposed to take, or even lose direction, or your focus off to the path you are not supposed to follow, if you have no direction, or you choose to not stay on the right path your life may turn out like doorathee from whiz-herd of awhz, maybe that is why my life has been what it has been. I know the older we get we tend to have a mentally thought process of saying “I should of” or “could’ve” which is pure misery. If only I would have listened to my parents. Your parents are telling you this because of their life experiences trying to save you the pain. You will make many mistakes; causing you to make u-turns, hit bumps, even hit chuckholes, which leads to more damage and all because you didn’t want to listen to their advice. Advice is knowledge from experience!
Gain more of it! How do I get the strength to gain more knowledge? Where do I obtain knowledge? I recommend going on a mission trip where you can be a blessing to others. Having a vast amount of knowledge can go a long way our past started from scratch it’s never too late to start from scratch (start over) fresh new thoughts can and will become great things. Give it a try!
Do you need experience? Yes! If you have no experience you may need to seek it out through volunteering. Be unique try something different. Why hold out on learning more? What are the advantages and disadvantages?
- What did you think or know about God? I felt God was not there for me because bad things continued to happen to me. I was molested around seven years old.
