CHOSEN ENCOUNTERS


As many of us have traveled through life’s journey, we’ve encountered many types of people. Most always leave an impression on our mind of good or bad; we do recall their presence and character. Some may have a great personality, generosity, heart of gold and they leave you with a great feeling of euphoria. Those folks normally you keep in your life, for they bring such joy and pleasure to your state of mind. And likewise you return the graciousness. Life feels great to be content and happy with love of friends and family.

Then we encounter those who know nothing but to use and abuse whoever they come in contact with. They have chosen this path for their own benefit, looking out for number one and that is all that counts with them. It’s a game to see how many people they can con or use, and laugh as they travel down their road of destruction, leaving behind people who didn’t deserve to be mistreated.

Worst of all, sometimes it’s family who tears your heart strings from your heart and soul, leaving you no choice but to take them out of your life. Being self centered, selfish, controlling, and just plain disrespectful to others is a sin that will have to be reckoned with one day. Either here on earth or in God’s presence, the price will be paid.

I’m thankful for the many blessings God had bestowed upon me and the light he has shown me through the years. I haven’t cry, but only rejoiced at his lessons, for they have made me a better person, not a bitter person. Many a bitter person lives an unhappy and bitter life, only to leave this earth without the joy God intended for us.

We all have to take the bitter with the sweet on our journey of life. It’s our attitude that determines how we react and handle situations. Success of life is 90% attitude and 10% of how we deal with our daily lives.

I’ve read that God loves us more when we are suffering and in pain, for then He comforts and give us strength. He lets His presence known, so count on God for everything and use his God -given senses as well.

He enables us with smell, touch, hearing and a conscience, while we seeking His eternal love.
