Day 7: Free Will


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

INDEPENDENTLY strong WILLED child.

The child,

who is being taught to think for him/herself,

but when the child does

it usually doesn't turn out as well.

Hmm...

I can so be that child.

How about you?

The FREEDOM

to respond

the way you want to

when you want to,

because that is just

what you want to do.

The FREEDOM to be INDEPENDENT!

INDEPENDENT ~

the SELF-determination

to be

INDEPENDENTLY

FREE

from anyone,

because

SELF is leading.

Hmm,

sounds a bit like

FREE WILL

that is

SELF-determination.

Hmm.

But isn't

FREE WILL

a Christian~ese kind of word?

Yes,

but it still is

THE INDEPENDENCE

to

do what you want to do

when you want to do it,

because that is just

what you want to do.

But then why doesn't GOD step in and say.

"AM I TALKING TO THE WALL"

when we

PUT INTO PRACTICE

the

FREE WILL

to be

ANXIOUS

&

the

FREE WILL

to

DOUBT

&

the

FREE WILL

to be

HOPELESS

&

the

FREE WILL to be ____________?

BUT GOD

has provided another way to

PRACTICE FREE WILL

HIS WAY

because GOD 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,

so you have the

the

FREE WILL to LOVE GOD

by

OBEYING HIS WORD~

“If you [really] love ME, you will keep and obey MY commandments" (John 14:15).

THE FREE WILL TO OBEY GOD

that

replaces

Anxiety with HIS PEACE,

Doubt with HIS HOPE,

Despair with HIS JOY!

When has FREE WILL lead you down the wrong path?

Is FREE WILL leading you down the path to

Anxiety

Bitterness

Worry

Fear

Doubt

&

____________?

Therefore,

let's

PUT INTO PRACTICE

the

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

not only from

LISTENING

but also

DOING

because

"...blessed (happy, favored by GOD) are those who hear the word of GOD and continually observe it” ( Luke 11:28).
