God plus nothing else
Everything else without God.
Maybe we don’t have freedom of choice after all.
In the game of life we are born into the world’s team of superstars. No choice. That is where we are placed. An evolving, powerful team of the great and small, the mighty and the weak. All with a place. All with a purpose.
To make the world a better place for me.
“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
What was that? Who said that?
You were just invited to join a different team.
Now, you choose.
What I want, or what He wants.
It’s simple, really. Continue on your way, making sure you get your way as much as you can, and enduring and fighting when you can’t, or
Giving up your rights, all your preconceived ideas of justice and good, your ideas of what is best for you, and placing yourself into the hands of this new coach, trainer, developer, ruler. His rules. His roles. His team. His ways are not our ways.
Life will certainly become more interesting.
But, certain people will come to hate and despise everything that you come to love. You will begin to recognize hatred, blindness, foolishness, gullibility to the false narrative of this world.
You will begin to recognize the enemy, the plans and agenda of the enemy.
And, you will experience a peace, a joy, a purpose in the hands of the One who is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”

Well said, Randy. And so true! Every day I am aware that if I’m going to follow Christ, I will see things differently from the world (with “divine perspective”), and that if I’m following Him right, I will be like Him. And if I’m like Him, I will be hated by some, maybe the majority, and I have to be OK with that. Reminding myself of this daily gives me peace.

Great post! And we will let go more and more of what is temporary as we realize we only need Jesus and He is coming soon hopefully! ❤
