Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.”
While I do agree there is truth to his perspective, the bible on the other hand tells of two ways, – the straight and narrow way/road that leads the ones who takes it to eternal life in Christ, a promise of success, prosperity, and good health in the land and, the broad way that leads to destruction, chaos, confusion and death.
The other truth is, we all have been given a ‘free will’ to choose. We are not forced by another, and should not be forced to make choices in life. It is really up to us to make the right one. Once you and I have made a choice, everything, and I mean everything out there in the atmosphere, stratosphere, hemisphere and the entire universe conspires to make the choice that we have made happen.
Whatever we choose do have consequences for either good or evil, blessing or curse. There is absolutely no middle ground and no in between. The seeds that we sow today in the ground will bring forth its’ harvest in due time. Sometimes we experience seasons of difficulties and challenges without the realization that it’s from a decision or a choice that we made in the past that we are now receiving the fruit of.
Frederick F. Flack thoughts on choices is this: “Most people can look back over the years and identify a time and a place at which their lives changed significantly. Whether by accident or by design, these are the moments when, because of a readiness within us and a collaboration with events occurring around us, we are seriously forced to reappraise ourselves and the conditions under which we live and to make certain choices that will affect the rest of our lives.”
The point is, there is a choice that each one of us have to make. We choose to marry, then we must be prepared to face the challenges that comes in a marriage. The boyfriend/girlfriend continues to cheat and you make a choice to stay in the relations, then it makes no sense to go out and complain how cheat he is. Hello! You made the choice! We choose to be a single parent, then by all means raising a child on our own is not the easiest thing in the world, so choose wisely. There are persons who joined the organization after you and have been promoted and you are still stuck – not prepared to do anything to further qualify yourself, then be prepared to suffer the consequences or get additional training and qualification. You cannot walk in an open downpour of rain with your head/body uncovered and then blame it on the devil or start rebuking him because you catch the flu 24 hours later. A choice you made.
We’ve got to choose this day whom we will serve. No man can serve two masters, if not you will love one more and hate the other even more. God wants us all to have an intimate and personal relationship with Him. It is his deep longing and His desire for that to take place. Trusting God and making that choice to have Him as Lord of your life, to guide and direct you to make the right choices in your life is the best thing that anyone could ever do – its’ “A Choice To Make.”
