Life is about choices

25 05 2009

I was sitting with a dear and very wise friend not too many weeks ago. We were talking at the time about relationships, but what she said I have since been able to apply to many areas of my life. 

“Sometimes God tells you exactly what to do, but sometimes He takes you to the ice cream shop. There are dozens of flavors but it’s all ice cream. He stands back and lets you pick! Just pick a flavor!”

I laughed really hard but its true. Life is about choices- sometimes we just choose to say “yes” to whatever God is saying. Sometimes (like any good dad) He wants you to choose what you want. So what do you want? Dream big! Come boldly! Ask! 

I read a quote somewhere to the effect of “Love God and do what you want”. There should be more of that in our lives, I think.

I love you my sister. I really do. We should live in the same place so we can hang out all the time.
