I decided a long time ago (not long enough ago), that I choose to live my life as if it were an epic movie. God is my director, my composer, my screen writer.
Most people seem to think hes like a omniscient being that just gets a ticket to watch our lives. They do not see him when everything is going well, but when the movie takes a turn and the emotion and pain begins to well up they seem to forget that the audience cannot just jump in and fix the situation because they knew what a stupid decision was being made sooner. No matter how much he wants to help, he cannot, because they have not made him director!
You can choose to let God watch your life, or you can choose to let him direct it. Things will be better, life will be sweeter. There will be love, hope, and beauty written into your life in ways that only movies can make look so sweet, with all the graphics, and music and special effects. You can allow your life to be lived to its fullest potential, and with such beauty, or you can choose for your life to have hopelessness, sorrow, and confusion without the promise of beauty and fullness of life. God doesn’t want to watch you fail, he yearns to show you how to succeed. Life is going to have ups and downs, pain and hurt, and unexpected loss. It is how you respond to those things that will make all the difference.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
