Day 12: Am I Talking to the Wall?


When are you going ever to learn?

What were you thinking or should I say not thinking?

How many times do I have to tell you?

Am I talking to the wall?

Says the Parent to the

Independent strong willed child.

The child who is being taught to think for him/herself

but when he/she does, it just doesn't turn out that well.

Hmm...

I can so be that child. How about you?

The Independence

to respond

the way you want

when you want to

because that is just

what you want to do.

Independence~

Freedom

Liberty

and then this word pops up in the definition

Self-determination~

Determination driven by Self

Independently Free from anyone

because

Self is leading

Hmm...

Sounds a bit like

Free Will~

Freedom

Liberty

and this word pops up....again

Self-determination

Hmm...

Determination driven by Self

But isn't

Free Will

a Christian~ese kind of word?

Yes, but it still is

the Independence

to

do what you want

when you want to

because that is just

what you want to do.

But then why doesn't God step in and say

Am I talking to a wall?

when we

Put into Practice

the

free will

to be anxious

the

Free will

to doubt

the

Free will

to

be hopeless...

But instead

He responds to us with an action

a verb

to bring us back

to the

Free will

to do it again

but

His Way.

And when we ask Him

"Why"

He says,

"Just because I said so"

and

He can say that

because

He really has the final

Word

because

His Word

is

the Word as

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

The Word~

Jesus

Who makes

Free will

easy

when

you become

Independently Dependent on Him

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36

Independence~

The Freedom

The Liberty

The Self driven determination

to choose

Him

to do it

His way

because

God said

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;

I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalm 32:8

Because He sent His Son Who is

the way and the Truth and the Life. John 14:6

that always leads you right back to

the Father~

your Father

my Father

the perfect parent

who doesn't want to talk to a wall

because

He is talking directly to you.

Free will

begins with Love

His Free Will

to

Love you

just because ~

For God so loved the World John 3:16.

so we can have the

the

Free Will

to Love

to...

Love the Lord your God with

all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Luke 10:27

because

He is talking to you.

And when we do love

with our "all"

Free Will

will always lead us right back to Him

and "all" that

He is~

Perfect Peace in all circumstances

Perfect Trust in a season of doubt

Perfect hope in the most hopeless circumstances

and

Perfect Forgiveness

when

we choose to be like a wall

without ears

to hear

and

choose to be

Independently Dependent on Self~

doing what we want

when we want to

because

that

is just what we want to do.

When has Free Will lead you down the wrong path?

When has God's Free Will to love you, lead you back to the right path?

So

If the Son has set you free

and

you will be free indeed

let's

Put into Practice

the

Free Will

to be

Independently Dependent

on the

One

Who

knocks down every brick in your life

that builds the brick wall

that keeps you from hearing

because

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