The road taken

I haven't written for a while. As usual a lot has been going on, but I give God the glory anyway. It kinda of late and I"m extremely tired, but I just feel the need to express my heart through writing tonight. I um just been thinking about decisions and paths I've come across in my 20 years of experiencing life. Since a young child, I was raised in the church, but I got to know Jesus Christ at about 11 years old. I knew about him all my life, but I never experience him before. From then on, I had this theory that if I served God for the rest of my life good things would happen to me ALL the time. I came to learn that God is not a vending machine. You know when you put 25 cents in the machine? You expect to get something that is worth 25 cents out. Well God doesn't work that way. God doesn't want you to serve him because you want good things to happen to you, but you should serve him because he alone is worthy. The road taken is the road for Christ. Its a narrow road, self has to die, so Christ can truly live through us. A couple years of ago when I was about 18, I experience my rude awakening and it just hit me, "God is not a vending machine". Even though its a simple analogy or revelation, its truth Amen
