Be careful what you ask for.

I was just recently in a tough situation where I was confused on what decision I should make. I was constantly in a battle with whether I should continue to have a particular person in my life. After a while I realized that it not about what I want or what I THINK I need it’s about what God wants for me. I prayed for clarity and peace in regards to the situation because I knew I couldn’t make the decision on my own.  So what did HE do? He took the decision out of my hands and made it for me.

Now the reason I am saying be careful what you ask for is because when you ask God to do something for you that doesn’t always mean it will happen the way you want it to.  I was very upset when the situation unfolded because the person ended up walking out of my life and I wanted to be the one to make the decision and walk away. But after venting to one of my friends about the situation he reminded me that I asked for clarity and that is what God gave me.

Belief in a higher power is one of our principles in BFDC and I think we should all be reminded that there is someone or something bigger than us guiding us through this roller coaster we call life. Don’t forget that you are not alone when you are going through your struggles. Don’t be scared to ask for help but just be careful what you ask for.
