Last Sunday in church we had an excellent sermon by a former ELCA Bishop of the church. He asked a number of questions in regard to how you fit into the church that I felt could be modified to how you look at your life and how you fit in. So here goes.
What are your expectations about your life?
In other words what was it that you had expected out of life? Why did you have those expectations? What was it that made you believe that you would get that out of life? Did something happen in your youth that gave you those expectations? What were you taught about life as a youth? The beliefs that we have as adults are all formed as we are growing and regardless of what they are they can be changed! Right now. Create your own beliefs and your expectations of life will change!
What is your THIS?
In other words what is it that you declare openly about yourself? Who do you say that you are? Is it a positive or negative connotation? What you tell people about yourself, your life and your surroundings is exactly what you will get! You create your own life and if it is good or bad is up to you. Speak what you want out of life and you can change your life!
Where are you being lead?
In other words what is it that is leading you in your life? Are you following someone else's path or are you following your own path? The path you follow is your decision and once again you have the power to change it! One of my favorite poems is by Robert Frost,
