At one point in my life I believed I knew it all. I could figure out my own answers and I didn’t need anyone to tell me what to do…what decisions to make or how to forge ahead in life. I needed me and only me. It took me about 10 years to realize that my life wasn’t full because I was taking advice from the worst person ever….ME. I’m not sure why I had thought that I was my best go-to. I suppose that evil word…Ego…is the answer to that. Maturity has finally settled in as I’ve become aged and wisened (which I’m sure isn’t a word). These days I seek GUIDANCE from a new place….but let’s define that word before I tell you who I’ve turned to.
GUIDANCE: Advice or info aimed at resolving a problem…especially given by someone in authority.
Turns out a book I had lugged around with me for years and years had the answers I needed to pursue life. The Bible!! Yea….shocking…I know. I mean…I grew up hearing about that dude who built a huge ship for animals to escape from the flood ( I hate rain!). I’ve known about Eve and her lack of will power around fruit. Revelations was to be feared and I Paul to be revered. What more could be in that massive publication? I soon found out…EVERYTHING.
Direction has come back to into my life…peace…serenity (Like a Fergie song). I’m not judgmental as a result…I don’t hate anyone…I don’t tell people what they should and shouldn’t do…and I don’t go around quoting verses as conversation. See…this guide has also preached the virtue of love and that was the biggest piece missing in my life. I’ll continue to open the Bible and seek answers…but I thought I’d share that today…in case you’re looking for any guidance.
