At times in our lives we may reach a crossroad or a point of reflection where we look back at the choices we have made and the decisions which led us to where we are today. These times are often times when we closely examine ourselves and re prioritise what is important in our lives.
These times may involve us looking at the career path we have chosen for ourselves, it may be who we associate with in our lives or something as simple as drinking Pepsi instead of Coke.
It may also be which Church we choose to attend.
These times should always be used to improve ourselves and to make positive changes in our lives which enrich us both physically and spiritually and while these times make be challenging they will improve us and we will be better for them.
In all of the changes and reflection that I am going through right now the first thing I always do is get on my knees and pray to God. Two scriptures always come to mind .
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
This scripture serves to remind me that if I firstly seek God in all things he will guide my path, keep me safe and show me where I need to be in life.
The second scripture that comes to mind is
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
If we have Jesus Christ in our life then we can overcome anything, nothing is too hard for us. The times where we reflect and doubt what we have done in our lives will be manageable because of The Son of God.
I try to live my life by these faithful Christian standards which makes sense given my family motto in Latin is Constans Fidei which translates to Steadfast Faith
