For most of us we have had our days where we have thought or said "Man, I wish I was a kid again" I know when I was a child I had this whole outlook on life and what it was like and supposed to be. Some of us even had make believe friends, King of over an entire land, or even had some absurd things we wanted to be when we grew up. Then we grew up and ideas changed, some new ones introduced, people started teaching us what was good/bad, society formed us to what was an acceptable way to live. We inherited a status based off of credit scores and the things we own. With all of these things we are overwhelmed sometimes on decisions to make, I mean we don't want to make a mistake, and most of us are not so patient so we want it fast and now as well. It all seems just as unrealistic as it did when we were children just making up who we were (a princess, thief, knight, etc) in whatever fantasy location we chose to be in. But it just felt right when we were young, What was the difference between now and then? Is there a difference? Someone once told me that I think I live in a fantasy world, (LOL) Maybe I do?

We are all on this journey with a purpose and a goal. Our goals may be different but our purpose is all the same. When you trust that you are being lead by God you begin to be witness to the things he allows to be known to you and you recognize the teachings being laid out before you. You still have the choice to adhere to them. But even with this you learn to respect those for their choices because God is going to continue to work in any occasion, He knows the end result and it will be that all will know Him and seek Him. In time all is revealed and nothing is kept from them that love the Lord.
We must not be condescending to others for the choices that they make. Continue to show love and allow God to do His will through them. This is way better than you trying to enforce your will on them as God has shown you. The beauty is in the difference. If we came to the knowledge of Him in all the same way we would not have true possession over our walk. There is a divine order that must be governed. God knew this from Himself and He knows that this order has to take place within us all in order for it to be True and powerful.
" For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12
This scripture was brought up in class. Such a powerful realization when you truly understand what is really going on in your life. We may rely on individuals and trust our close friends, lovers and family and for some of us they may do things that lose our trust. And we began to ask “What is it that I did wrong?” or even “Why don’t they understand I am here for them and how much I love them?” These questions are answered when you understand this verse. We are spiritual beings living a natural experience. But keep in mind that there is a way to live spiritually in the flesh for all things were created with the same intent, for it was all created from the Word. This truth is what will lead us to our next lesson …
Keep in mind the questions to answer. I want to encourage all those who are following to participate in the blog as well. Remember there is no wrong way in this walk to Knowledge and understanding of who you are. The more you comment and ask questions the more others will be inspired. This is the relationship this blog is created to serve. Our fellowship is important to your growth.
Questions I would like for you to think on until the next lesson:
What do you know about where you came from? Is God a subject of relation for you in this regard? How well do you manage this relationship?
