I Want it My Way

footsteps not shoesIt seems that life rarely goes “my way”. Lately more often than not I am finding that the way it used to be, the way I liked it to be, are not the same as the way it is now. Life changes daily and I get frustrated with the changes. Here is an example. I used to be able to wear fashionable shoes that matched my outfits. Though I am not a “fashionista” I do want to look coordinated in what I wear.  Due to my ankle and foot issue I can only wear athletic shoes. Do you know how frustrating it is to feel like you look stupid everywhere you go? It is a challenge to try to figure out what I can put on that will look business like and still wear the athletic or walking shoes. 

Do you ever wonder if Jesus wanted to do things differently than He did? I think He showed great restraint in personal preferences by following the lead of His Father God.


19 So Jesus answered them by saying, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself [of His own accord], unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever things the Father does, the Son [in His turn] also does in the same way.

But there was a time when Jesus did try to get out of something and do it a different way, right before going to the cross. In his anguish He asked God for an out, but He did not get one.

Matthew 26:39 (AMPLIFIED BIBLE)

39 And after going a little farther, He fell face down and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible [that is, consistent with Your will], let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.”

As I sit and write this blog I realize that my fashion problem is nothing compare to what Jesus had to do. My worry about other people thinking I just don’t know how to dress properly is wrong. All the little things that have caused me frustration are nothing in the big scheme of things and I need to learn how to expect them to happen and deal with them and move on. This is just like bad news, I need to understand and prepare myself for the worst case scenario while doing all I can to change the situation. It helps to get a HIGHER PERSPECTIVE on life by reading the Bible.

Enjoy your week and I will be back next week with more.
