  • Be Obedient…Even if it is Hard

    What choice did you make at a fork in the road?

    “Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what
    is right.”

    -Albus Dumbledore

    This quote is from Harry Potter, and I use it
    only because it lines up perfectly with Christianity. It also really hits home
    with me at this time in my life. I have been a Christian all my life, and I
    have always thought of myself as a faithful follower. The trouble with this
    confidence in my spirituality is that it is paired with a barrier between
    Christ and oneself. I have begun to praise myself for my strong relationship
    with Christ, but my lack of humility displeases the One I claim to be closest
    with. “Doing the right thing” is something I have always believed I
    did, but as I continue to become more prideful, I also become closer to sinning
    or doing the WRONG thing. It is so important to humble yourself every now and
    then, and  

    remember you are NOTHING
    without our father in heaven.
     

    Our Father wants us to always stray from
    anything close to sinful– 

    no matter if
    what you are required to do is hard.
     

    Christ died for us and followed God’s
    orders, and that most certainly was not easy for him. However, his obedience of
    doing something hard is what allows us to be living today. Imagine if he
    decided upon taking the easy way out.  

    Never
    settle for something less than your best and do the right thing
     

    even if it
    means upsetting someone or jumping through hoops to do so.  

    Life was never guaranteed to be easy, but we were most certainly
    promised to have a guide through the storms.
     

    Christ even says in John
    16:33,
    I
    have said these things to you, that in
    me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart;
    I have overcome the world
    (The Book of John). This verse guarantees
    troubles but also guarantees that Christ is with us. Always strive to live as Christ did, and be obedient to what God calls
    you to do.
