Good Morning Everyone and welcome to Dee’s Thoughts. Love your comments thank you for them. I believe that “Dee’s Thoughts” should primarily reflect my own life experiences as they are more personal and not just mere words that many times we don’t identify with. Saying that, I think that most of us would agree that “we (I ) more than anyone else think we know what is best for us”.
Well, not so much!! Why is that? Well for one thing, what I think is good for me is usually focused on what “I want”, “What makes me feel good at the time,” and or “does this make me happy”? All of which is not necessarily good for me. Also, this is a very human approach feeling and thinking this way because I want these things and we usually go for the things we want. Right?
I was reading in Psalm this morning and came upon a Scripture that said, “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow. I used to be a very independent person and was very sure I didn’t need any help from anyone else, I would work it out myself! That was my way of thinking. Well, life has a way of showing up and blowing that concept right out of the water.
This has been a long process in my life of realizing and undoing this concept of thinking I can or even have to do it on my own. But this has changed. Difficult times financial, emotional and loss has a way of tearing down that wall of independence and the need for help. The only thing my independence gave me was even “more determination to make it on my own.” Did I know what was good for me NO! Do you always know what is good for you?
I love how this Scripture say’s God teaches us what is good for us and leads us along the path we should follow, this gives me peace! I am grateful that God has a path for all of us to follow and that path will be good for us in every way. It is better to be taught what is good for us than what we think is good for us. We are all on different paths but be confident that God loves us and has a path that will lead us all the way to its final destination HOME.
Blessings and love
