There Is A Way Out

I remember when my daughter was in the 1st grade and I went with her  on their field trip to a pumpkin patch farm. They had all kind of activities for them to participate in  as well as being able to pick out their own pumpkins.  One of the things we decided to do, was go inside the maze. The object of the maze was being able to find your way out. The maze wasn’t very big, but I immediately started feeling clostiphobic. I don’t deal with small tight places that I can’t see my way out of. Because I was with my daughter I couldn’t show any signs of fear, as she was already nervous about going in. We dared to go inside the maze and as we were walking we would see different objects along the way. We didn’t pay attention until we came around to them again. That was an indication that we were going in circles and needed to make a turn. As we went around again we paid closer attention to the landmarks and before we knew it we were out of the maze. Life has a way of setting up detours, road blocks, obstacles, etc. To be quiet honest we make a lot of those things happen ourselves by the decisions and choices that we make. Sometimes we become stagnated because we see the same old scenory and allow ourselves to become discouraged in thinking there is no way out,  even to the point that we stop trying. We accept that as our life. I have good news for you, “There Is A Way Out”  1 Corinthians 10:13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” If you find yourself going down the same path or your going in circles trapped inside your own maze, maybe it’s because your not paying attention to how to get out. Lessons experienced over and over again are because we don’t learn from going through them the first time. You have the power to stop the cycle from repeating itself. God never intended for us to stay where we are, but it’s up to us whether we want to get out. WAKE UP and PAY ATTENTION!

Declaration:
I AM faithful

Ephesians 1:1

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:”

Whenever I am in a relationship with someone I am always faithful to that person. I don’t hang out with other men, even those who are my best friends. I try to be there for them. I watch my conversations and the company that I keep. I don’t seclude myself totally from others, but out of respect for them. Call me old school, but I don’t want to give any room for anything. Not that I think anything would happen or go wrong, but I feel when your with someone you wouldn’t have the need or desire to hang around someone of the opposite sex than you.  I know that everyone’s views are a little different, but that’s mine. I believe that you do need friends and  for me female friends have always been the lesser of the two, but yet and still I feel like there is a fine line when it comes to that. There should still be some type of boundaries. If you aren’t careful your friendships can sometimes come in between your relationships. Look at the relationship between a dog and man. He is faithful unto death. Wherever the master is there you will find the dog. When you are faithful to someone or anything for that matter not only is it building a form of trust, but respect, loyalty, strength, honesty, dignity and self control. Where there is no trust you pretty much don’t have anything. Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Many of us want to be rulers, but yet we can’t be faithful to one thing whether it’s a relationship, our job, our church, etc. Our fleshly nature can sometimes  be selfish and want everyone to be committed to us and yet we aren’t committed to anyone but ourselves. Faithfulness not only will get us into places with man, but into the heart of God. Even though people may not always be as faithful and committed to me as I am to them because my heart has the desire to do right that I remain faithful even when they are not. That doesn’t mean that I become a fool and let people take me for granted. I don’t do it to seek the reward from man, but my Father which is in heaven. For greater is my reward when I please the Lord.
