If we keep our focus on God, He will lead us down the right path for us. It is when we take our focus off of God, and follow the lead of someone else that does not have our best interest at heart, is when we can easily be led astray. God is always with us, through the good and the bad. He will never leave our side no matter what. Though, there are times when even well-meaning friends can lead you astray if you let them. The way to stay on the chosen path for us is to keep our focus on God. Our awareness of His presence is our best protection.
Always remain true to yourself, your desire, and the desires that God has placed in your heart. There will always be trials and tests that we must pass, and during these times we are truly being challenged. This is when we have to look deeper and harder for God’s signs and listen for that small voice we hear within encouraging us to take the chosen path of remaining faithful to ourselves and to God.
Things always happen for a reason, and while sometimes trying to understand that reason can fog up our minds, it is important to know that God’s plans are different from our own.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8)
God’s plans make us stronger. God’s plan turns a bad situation into a blessing. God’s plan turns a desire into a need that only He can fulfill. I urge you to look ahead at the open road ahead of you. That road leads to heaven. The challenge you face before you is to stop focusing on your problems and what you don’t have, and think of everything that you do have and are grateful for. When you do this, the road ahead becomes more clear. So keep your focus always on God and the light will shine brightly directing your path down the chosen road for you!
