“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9
We all have ways. Everyone has ways. God has His ways.
Our ways are how we choose to react, speak and live. Your Visa account, text messages and search history speaks of your ways.
We think about the future 2019, sometimes rather romantically. It's this mysterious thing, like,what will 2019 hold for me…? Unfortunately we can’t change reality... you're going to be exactly like you, just exaggerated. If you're kind today, you'll be kinder then, because these things deepen. These things mature. If you are cruel today, you will be crueler still.
Time doesn't change who you are. It reveals who you are and makes you more of who you are. Oh, I'm going to be different in the future. No, you're going be exactly like the choices you are making today, just more set in those ways.
You are what you eat. You become what you idealize and you reap what you sow.
So future 2019 you, is not so mysterious. Its current you, exaggerated. But I have good news. If you don't like what you're getting, there is hope! You can change what you’re doing, make different choices and value different things. The life you get stuck with is the life you make, so why not make it a good one. It's never too late to do the right thing. If you have any resolution this year – I pray that it is to surrender your ways and allow Gods’ ways to change your life for the better.
