“You can live like there’s no tomorrow, but tomorrow’s still there when you wake up, full of consequences.” Lecrae
There’s always going to be a decision to make. And depending on what the final decision is on some things, you’re likely to end up with two very different results..major blessings or consequences.
Some decisions cause grief for a little while – a temporary ache. Then others, oh boy, it’s much longer!
Guess what, though? You know our God? Well, He has this crazy, awesome wisdom! And it’s always there for the taking. The key is..asking Him for it. Geez, I suck at that part! Me, and my liking to be thought of as “Ms. Independent” and all.
Funny story: I can never be independent, nor live independently, from God! Like, ever. Apart from Him, I can do nothing. Nothing good, anyway. Or even remotely smart! So I’m having to relearn that whole “I just need me, myself and I!” bit, that I grew so reliant on from early on in life. I’m a work in progress, however!
What decisions have been made to bless your life tremendously? Left you with consequence on top of consequence?
“But the wisdom from above is, first of all, pure. It’s also peace-loving, gentle always & willing to yield to others. It’s full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism & is always sincere.” James 3:17

Tomorrow Almost Always Comes
There was a pretty major decision that I was needing to make a fairly short time ago…I found myself in a predicament, where I could choose to keep going down the road I was on and struggle through each day in a great deal of pain. Or I could give myself a boost, and make a decision to do something that was easy but wrong, and against everything I believe morally. It came down to the wire, but I went with what my Head was telling me, because my heart was hurt and capable of deceiving me at that time.
I’m so thankful for my choice now! My life could’ve been very different at this very moment, had I have chosen to throw caution to the wind. But instead, I thought of tomorrow in the sense that I had faith it would come. And it did. I’m not in the same pain I had been, and I fought through the struggling, to this really beautiful place I couldn’t see coming then. I owe that to my obedience alone. Everyday, despite the circumstances which could’ve and probably should’ve thrown me off, I opened my Bible and was given reminders of who I am..and WHOSE.
Don’t give up, friends! I know there’s days it hurts so bad you can barely breathe, I know there’s days you question why you’re even trying and what’s the point…My circumstances progressively got worse over the span of about four years, to the point of where I’d begin shaking uncontrollably and crying in a heap on the floor. But because of my continuous obedience, because of my faith..because of God, I came through it, not only stronger and happier but also more aware of the power of God and prayer.
