1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.

Its Your Life
If you live long enough you will find that is very easy to get confused or persuaded by other peoples opinions. If you are truthful or even if you take the time to think about it, you will realise that some of our biggest mistakes were made because we either listen or were persuaded by other peoples opinions. Think about where would you be if you just listen to your heart and valued your own opinions or thoughts . But my grandmother has an old saying that still applies today," When in doubt only trust God". For only he knows your beginnings or your endings. As I think about this past statement, I often reflect on my own past mistakes and wonder what would my life be like if I just listen to my own heart or if I just took more chances. My mother what say this statement that I never paid attention to," You will never know how it may turn out unless you give it a try". Now that I am older now I know what she meant. If I knew what I know now I would have taken more risk or chances. I would have went after more of my dreams and maybe accomplished more or maybe I would be married to that beautiful woman, that some said was no good or good enough for me. After all just like my father would tell me," Son its your life and its up too you to live it the way you want too". But as a young adult I was either scared or afraid to take risks, so I valued other peoples opinions, instead of going after my dreams. It makes me think of something that both my mother and father used to tell me, that I am now passing on to you who read this." Surround yourself around successful or positive people or around people who will push you and help you reach your full potential. She would go on to say, that its easy to find people that are judgmental or people with negative thinking, because misery loves company. So son if you happen fall in love or get some new friends ,make sure they are the type that believe in you or have faith in you. Surround yourself around some God fearing people that love you just like your father and I. After I think about my life I realise that I have been blessed and God has always been there for me. If I just trusted him more an practice a little bit more faith then there is no telling where I would be today. If you happen to be reading this I want you to pay attention to these last few words. With any decision always consult or trust God. Pray without fail or with an sincere heart and God will guide you into the right direction. Never let fear or doubt influence your decisions. When taking advice always remember or examine who you are getting it from. If they happen to be doing worse than yourself, its a good chance that they are not the ones you should be getting advice from. But still do not ignore it, because God works in mysterious ways and can use anyone to get his point across. Always trust your heart and go with your feelings, because you do not want to live your life with regrets. So take risks, enjoy your life and do not pass on opportunities, even when it comes to love. Its your life and you should live it to the fullest. If you are living your life the way someone else or the way your parents want you to live, take your life back because its yours. And if all of this sounds confusing to you and you need some direction. When in doubt only trust God. Always remember this during all the days of your life God removes what man call obstacles' and makes the impossible possible. So never loose faith and believe you can. After all it is YOUR LIFE.
Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water
