Have you ever found yourself in a difficult situation, or maybe at a point in your life where you just realized that things are not going as planned, well I have, and I know these times can be very hard to handle. It has been only a few years ago that I was facing one of the most difficult points in my life, and although I will not bore you with the details, I can tell you that I was at the point of no return, and I was literally stuck between a rock and a hard place. My life had spun way out of control, and it was as though I was on the outside looking in as my life went around faster and faster and I was being thrown out of orbit.
Sometimes life can throw you an unexpected curve in the creek, and at other times, we honestly know that the path we are currently on,only leads us directly to that curve in the creek; however, it doesn't truly matter how you arrived at that point, only that you are there and must now figure out what course of action to take now. For me, the choice was right in front of my face; however, I just could not bring myself to take that leap, I was afraid that I would fall in and drown. Obviously, I am using a metaphor to describe the way I felt at the time,but literally, I had a choice to make, the easy choice that lead to points unknown, or the much more difficult path that leads to life. The Holy Bible tells us in Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it; I was literally at this point in my life, and I knew that something would have to change. Thank God for praying parents and faithful friends; although things had not gone the way I had planned, things happened in a manner that showed God's glory in His ability to change my life.
Shortly after reaching that point in my life and realizing that it was time to try the other path, things began to improve, there was a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders, I had reached an epiphany as I realized that the path I was on previously ran directly into the arms of destruction. Am I saying that you must become a Christian in order to change your life, in all honesty, I am praying that you would at least consider it, just give God a try; taste and you will see that God is good. However, the true purpose of these letters is to tell you that sometimes we make mistakes, sometimes we do bad things, sometimes our lives are just spinning out of control, but you can change, you take steps to begin a new life.
Five years ago, I would never have thought that I would be a full time college student, that I would be involved in any type of ministry, or that I would be writing a blog, tweeting, or face booking;however, here I am now, composing a blog in hopes that just one person could be changed. Set a goal, and chase it down, and then set a new goal, and chase that one down, before you know it, you will be walking down the straight and narrow path. Sometimes you just have to take the first step.
