A father was trying to put together a dollhouse for his daughter. He looked at the picture on the box, and looked at all of the pieces that came out of the box, and began to assemble the dollhouse. As he got about half way through he realized that something was just not right, the picture on the box did not look like what he had assembled thus far. He then began to take the dollhouse apart and start all over again, only to discover there was something still not right, he then decided to take out the instructions and follow the instructions to assemble the dollhouse. When he finally finished it looked just like it did on the box. There are times in our lives when we do not follow God and we end up going in circles and doing things over and over again until we realize we should be following Him.
The Scripture reminds us that we should be followers of God, as His children, and walk in love, as Christ has loved us, and given Himself for us, as an offering and sacrifice unto God for a sweet smell unto God. I encourage you today to follow after God. No matter what things look like follow God. No matter how much you think you know where you are going and what you are doing, follow God. Walk in love with everyone just as God has walked in love with you. Jesus gave Himself as a sacrifice for you, and since He did that with you in mind, you should be able to walk in love with others around you.
People may try to lead you down the wrong paths in life, but you should follow God in all that you do, and know He will never steer you wrong. Stop going around in circles thinking you know how it is suppose to turn out, and follow God for He already knows how it will work out. As a child of God I will follow Him always, knowing that He will never lead me down the wrong path.
Since I am walking in love, and following God I know without a doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord help me to see the path that you have for me so I can follow you in all that I do, and be who you need me to be so others can see you as well. In Jesus Name Amen.
