“God knows your value; He sees your potential. You may not understand everything you are going through right now. But hold your head up high, knowing that God is in control and he has a great plan and purpose for your life." -Joel OsteenAs a Christian I believe that everything happens for a reason. That no matter what, God has a plan. But what if we knew what that plan was...what if we knew every single tiny detail that went into our life and what the choices we made would lead to? Would this new-found all-knowing mentality change everything?? It may only be logical to think that we would probably become so entirely consumed with ourselves and what the best next move for us is, how we can better benefit ourselves...what kind of a life is that?Now, some of you may be thinking "who couldn't possibly want to control their future and what happens?" Well let me ask you this... When your making your choices and bettering yourselves, what kind of ripples are you leaving? We know that for every action there is an equal or opposite reaction...Are your choices an equal or an opposite reaction?
Now just pause for a second...think...think back to the most recent point in your life where you made a HUGE decision that quite possibly changed your life...whatever it may be..now think about who all was involved, rack your mind with all the things that were effected by the choice you made..how they might have effected others all because of the choice you made for you. The ripples of our actions are endless...the true question here is, are people benefiting from your choices or are they having a negative effect?
You see every single person, whether you believe in God or not, you have a purpose..the choices you make matter. Your life, your actions, they may just lead to the cure for cancer, who knows what it may be! Too many kids these days are being brought up in their homes feeling insufficient..that they don't matter and nothing they ever do will make a difference..They are worthless....today..I want to break that mindset.
YOU. You are unbelievably, indescribably, wonderfully and fearfully made. There were no mistakes in your creation. You hold the key to so many wonderful things, things that hold the power to change the WORLD. Now....as you hold that key in your hand, you are exercising your God given right to freedom of choice..your staring right at your wonderful purpose..but now the choice is yours...You gonna open it?
