GETTING IT RIGHT
Thanks to Google Chrome my screen reader finally read this blog’s elements properly and I was able to find two separate fields to type into–a title (where I have been typing) and the message (where I was probably expected to be typing). I had a gut feeling I wasn’t posting properly into my blog so I could have worried and stewed about it so much that I just wouldn’t have written a word. Or I could, as I did, just do it anyway. If I had waited until I could “get it right” I might never have begun writing even when the Holy Ghost was encouraging me to write for you.
As I have written before, Jesus does not want us waiting until we “get it right” before we connect with Him. He wants us now, as we are. As Samuel Johnson stated:”Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.” Resisting what is in our best interest can come from early abuse, too much of a good thing, perfectionism, lack of confidence, fear, lack of trust, and so much more. Some people think that there is only one right answer to a question or situation when this is not always true. I am sure there is more than one way to “get it right” with Jesus. Listen to the testimonies of many Christians and this becomes evident. Whereas, Jesus is the only way for us, there are many ways for us, to Him. I’ve heard it said that it is a straight and narrow path once we are with Jesus; however, some of us have walked a veritable confusing, dizzying, frustrating, maze until we found Him or He found us. In Matthew 7 it says:
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
John 14:6King James Bible
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
In Jesus’ name!
