A friend of mine said she was mad at God when the choice she made didn’t work out the way she planned.

I started to question her…ask her why

Then I remembered the stupid thing I did when I didn’t pay attention to my inner knowing, the God voice whispering, or the feeling in my gut.

I thought about the clear revelation I didn’t hear … the thing right in front of me that I didn’t see … the mistakes made more than once.

We often fail to discern what is right in front of us, disregard what we know and discount options that seem out of our reach. Then we dimish our responsibility in the inevitable outcome.

But I’ve learned unless and until we take responsibility for our decisions. we can’t learn from our mistakes.

And I tried to be a more supportive friend.
