doing the right thing…

Standard

here lately in life i have been wondering why it is so hard for people to do the right thing.   Even in my own life.  A battle with my flesh is the conclusion i have come to.  So many times in life we know the right thing to do but we do just the opposite.. Then we will wonder why life is so crazy.  There are situations beyond our control when others around us put us in a position having to wait on them to do what is right.  Take it from me .. IT IS NO FUN!!  Accepting the consequences for your actions is a good start to doing the right thing.  Once we accept the fact that we messed up we can start dealing with the road ahead.  The road ahead is unknown but just remember that we are not alone EVER.  No matter how alone the enemy tells us and makes us feel that we are.  Look around at all the wonderful friends and family that you have.  Look around and look back at all the blessings in your life.  When we focus on the mountain it seems unmovable.  When we focus on God its all possible.  So many times we tend to let our old habits and emotions run away with us and we forget to listen to the Holy Spirit guiding us in his way.  His way is not always our way but it will always be the right way in the end.  And his timing is not always what we would like.

  1. so true. I don’t always understand what God is doing in my life or in the world but I do know that if we submit unto Him then He will put the desires on our hearts.

    And a good rule of thumb is to make sure we act with love and kindness. If it’s a loving action, you can pretty much be sure that you’re doing the right thing.

    The Holy Spirit will act through us and help us to make the right decisions. Galations 5:16 – This I say then. Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

    Galations 5:22 – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Against such there is no law.

    I know people are hurting and most likely their needs and problems are greater than mine. I WANT to show love to people. So, I find it easier to look at it in that way.

    I like this verse Ephesians 4:32 – Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

    I feel like a broken record, but this book is bite sized, affordable, powered by the Holy Spirit, and helps us to utilize the Word to do the right thing and win in our spiritual battle. Check it out: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004XJ4AOG
