From the very first sin humans lost their natural inclination to seek God first. It is so difficult to resist all the earthly temptations. It seems like there are so many shiny objects and juicy opportunities around every turn. With all of these temptations we have to choose between the treasures of this world, and righteousness through Jesus Christ. What we fail to understand and remember is that through Jesus we have everything and more than we could ever even dream of.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
There will be times in your life where something will take such precedence over your time, focus and priorities that God will step in and take it away in order to bring you back into focus with Him. When we forget that He is the source of all we need or could ever want God wants us to be reminded. He doesn't want us to get lost in the world of want and desire.
Sometimes loss and change are valuable lessons we needed in order to move closer to His path and further away from our own. Our path leads to sin and death, but His path will always lead to love and salvation.
Let Him lead you out of the darkness and into the light in every area of your life. You won't regret it.
