Pondering Life....

Is life really what a person makes it? Or.....is it all somehow predetermined before we are even born? I suppose everybody has their own opinion on the subject. It just seems to me that some people are born lto be lucky souls and ......some of us are not! Some people who don't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of just seem to effortlessly go out and amass millions of $...Others, who strive and work and sweat all their lives, end their journey through life with not too much more than they started out with. My momma always told me, "Your life is what YOU make it." Some days I really wonder about that. I usually try to live by the good ole golden rule and for those of you who might not be familiar with it, I'll quote it here. It goes like this: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." It is NOT as some believe; "Do unto others BEFORE they do unto you." LOL ! Yes, some people genuinly live with that attitude. I love people and I have a conscience. Great compassion for the human race as a whole is a part of my very nature. I also believe with all my heart in God and often wonder how He can have the patience to put up with our ignorance sometimes. I'm thankful He is longsuffering with my ignorance. I fully understand that He doesn't want us humans to be puppets and that is why He gave us the ability to make our own choices. He doesn't want to be loved and obeyed by FORCE; He longs for us to love and obey Him of our own free will, and so doing, we are loving Him with our HEARTS out of genuine, intelligent LOVE and not fear. That is my understanding of why God gave us a free will...Unfortunately, some of us abuse this priviledge and make some wrong choices so when God given opportunity knocks, our ears are deaf to the gentle knock because we think we have a better solution. We think we have ALL the answers until the bottom falls out and we find ourselves at our wits end....Wisely, God also knew this, cause many of us "know it alls" found out that, that's exactly where God lives; AT OUR WITS END! I know I have been guilty many a time, waiting until I get to that point to call on God for help. If I would have asked for His guidance from the beginning, alot of heartache might have been avoided. So, getting back to my original topic of "Life"; I am 46 years old and as I look back over some of the rough spots in my life (and there have been quite a few, lol) I groan inside when I think of the sorrow and heartache that could have been spared me if only I would have asked the Master of life to guide me through this plan or that choice instead of waiting until I found myself in a mud puddle only to find Him right there in the mud puddle beside me with a snow white cloth, trying to wipe the mud from my eyes (heart) so I could finally "SEE" what He was trying to show me all along. God is a very LOVING God...When things in life don't go our way, don't hurl the blame at God just because He is ALL POWERFUL. He never promised our journey through life would be filled with ease; look at the journey Jesus had to make, correction......CHOSE to make. When my life is all screwed up and I'm at my wits end, I have only to look in the mirror to see who is to blame. Until next time.....Gods blessings to all. *Sherry*
