If there is anything life keeps teaching me, it is this: My way is not the best way.

See, the reason I keep discovering this is because I keep trying my way, and it turns out it sucks. (am I allowed to say that s word?)

Now, admittedly, you could claim I'm just a crappy decision-maker (which is often true)...but I truly believe the real reason things keep turning into crappy situations is because I'm following my way rather than God's way.

Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it. Luke 11:28

I'm now convinced, through life experience, that when I follow what God tells me to do that life is so extremely ultimately mega super better. It's blessed. It just feels better. And I think it feels better because it is right.

So, rather than choosing our ways (I had to put this picture in here):

Let's begin following God's ways that He has beautifully set up and has been waiting, excitedly, for us to follow. First off, by making Him Lord of our lives.

Then, dive into the Bible and prayer. And follow. Obey.

If we mess up, let's not give up. But let's also not justify ourselves for messing up. Let's push to do this the best we can, because we want to honor our God and King the most we can.

Have a great, blessed week :)

What are you going to do this week? The decision is ours!

Our way is never the best way...we only get in the way, which keeps us from being on the way to a closer relationship with Christ
