Walking Away From God is Your Choice

Standard

Many people blame God for bad things that goes wrong in their lives. I’ve seen it and heard it many times. People curse God because they are angry. People walk away from God, because they feel He’s not listening to their prayers or they feel He’s allowed something bad to happen. People are quick to walk away from God when things aren’t going their way or when tragedy strikes, yet they hang on for dear life to the significant others in their lives who disrespects and mistreat them. They hold on to people who have let them go long ago.

As long as we live in this dark world we will go through trials and tribulations. No one on earth is exempt from tragedies, trials, or tribulations. Troubles will come and they will most certainly go. The world we live in is full of darkness. If we say we love God the Father and his Son Jesus then we must be ready to withstand the tests. The tests are coming time and time again. Things are getting darker and therefore tougher, if people are not standing for Him, then they are standing against Him. We can’t call ourselves Saints of God and are unable to withstand when things get rough and rocky. Although we will go through the storms, He will always be our peace in the midst of whatever we are going through; if we believe it.

The Bible says there will be “a great falling away.” People will leave Jesus. This is a person’s individual choice. Jesus doesn’t force us to come, stay, or leave. It’s all a personal choice.

A lot of people want what they want right now. They don’t want to tarry about anything. They don’t want to be quiet and listen to hear God, they want things to work out or be fixed right now. They lose faith and trust in God, because to them He’s not tangible. The Bible says “for faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen.” We are to “walk by faith and not by sight.”

Many will fall away and have fallen away, because they are/were walking by sight and NOT by faith. No matter what it looks like, God will “never leave or forsake us.” He’s an on time God! Not sometime, but all the time! Saints of God must remember there is both evil and good forces at work twenty four hours a day. God is always on the job, but so is the devil, but remember who has ALL power! The devil is limited!

His presence is forever shown to us if people see with their spiritual eyes and not their natural eyes. God is always showing up and showing us exactly who He is! People get discouraged because they continue to see through their natural eyes and not the spiritual eyes given to us when we serve Him. The Holy Spirit dwells within us and is that beacon flowing through us making us the light in this dark world.

Not one time is it written anywhere in the Bible when you give your life to Jesus and you live for Him your life would be trouble free. Nowhere in the Bible does it say a person’s life will be free of troubles in any form. That’s a misconception some people seem to have. The devil gets even busier trying to mess with you when you’re serving God. He’s trying to win you back on his team. He throws everything at you and on your path. As a child of the Most High we have to stand firmly on the Word of God. Keep on your full Armor of God. The devil is going to do his job of killing, stealing, and destroying. It is up to us individually to make sure through it all we still have trust, faith, and belief in Jesus the Son and God the Father.

Jesus loves us all and wishes for none of us to fall away. However, the decision is for each us to make on our own. Mom, dad, sister, brother, significant other, family, friend, or anyone else can’t make the ultimate decision. They can’t make the decision or walk the journey for us. People can plant the seeds, but we have to cultivate them and grow on our own. Coming to Jesus is your choice, staying is your choice, and leaving is your choice. I pray through it all you never allow anything or anyone to turn you away from the true and living God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Walking Away From the Start

Standard

People must learn to do this! If people would walk away from things that aren’t right from the start many wouldn’t be in the predicaments they are in. People allow how they feel for a person get them into avoidable situations. I will guarantee you if you walk away from bad situations from the start it will save you drama and stress later on. For some walking away will save their lives.

I’m not saying walk away from a relationship without ever trying to work on it. I’m saying walk away from unhealthy people to avoid being in unhealthy relationships. You do this by adhering to the signs. Stop looking at the outer appearance, stop looking at what a person has to offer. A person can be rich and completely tainted and toxic. They aren’t worth the pain and suffering of being involved with them.

Many women get into relationships with men who clearly show them they aren’t right for them, but because they think they love their men they continue on with the relationships. Many later find they made bad choices and poor decisions. Too many women go solely off of how they are feeling about the guy instead of looking at what is actually taking place in their relationships. They go into relationships thinking their men will change, trying to save them, or thinking they can fix them. This is a foolish and immature way of thinking and it leaves women in bad unhealthy relationships. They are fixated on the sex, how he makes her feel, and basically it all is intertwined into how he makes her feel. These women seem to lose a grip on reality until finally their eyes are open, by then it’s too far gone.

Too many women subject their children to unhealthy and unsafe environments by allowing people who shouldn’t be around their children into their lives. Children can’t fend for themselves, they rely on their parents. Women who are too caught up in their men to see what is going on are women who have a lot of issues they need to deal with. It’s a sad situation for these women and their children.

Many women are allowing men to beat, molest, rape, and hurt their children mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It scars children for a lifetime. These types of women need to get their heads out of the sand. A man who mistreats a child is a man who will mistreat his woman. Wake up and protect your children. Too many children are becoming victims to the hands of their mom’s significant others. These types of things cause dysfunction in the lives of children then they grow to be dysfunctional adults making bad decisions like their parents. I’m not saying all children will grow into dysfunctional adults, but many will and we see it every single day in some facet in all walks of life.

Men get into relationships for the some of the same exact reasons. They think they can save a woman or fix her. They are captivated by the outer appearance (shallow thinking). They get caught up in their sexual feelings or what is being done for them and to them. Sex is sex, period. Some men and women may perform a little better than others, but the bottom line is sex is sex. Some men; same as women think the person they are with will change or that they can fix them. Men like women; allow what they are feeling in their hearts to lead them into making bad decisions and choices. This does nothing but cause chaos and havoc in the lives of many.

Walking away from bad situations prevents worse things from happening. I don’t care how good it makes a person feels, if it’s not a good relationship it is bad and therefore unhealthy and unsafe. When people stay in relationships too long they suffer the consequences of their bad choices and decisions in one way or another. Sometimes those around them suffer the consequences as well.

No man or woman has to be in unhappy, unhealthy, and unsafe relationships. People get into and stay in them by choice until one day they see the truth for what it is and by then they feel stuck there by some form of fear. It can all be avoided by paying attention to the signs and walking away before things goes too far. Love isn’t unkind, impatience, possessive, obsessive, or controlling. It isn’t verbal, physical, or emotional abuse in no sense of the word. If someone loves you they will not want to cause you or your loved ones any pain. Many people miss this because they are too focused on how they are feeling. They miss all the signs until it’s gone too far. Sad, but true!
