part six of this series on choice! maybe, like me, you’re looking around lately and seeing that as well-intended as most of it is -- there seems to be choices being made “for our good” at school, in our activities, at work, in our neighborhoods, communities, in our families, and even at church. while i’m truly grateful that so many have our best in mind, i do believe that there is a very fine line between supporting, inviting, encouraging, & guiding...AND the other side, which can be choosing, dictating, controlling, demanding and manipulating. let’s consider some of the places and ways that these are happening and find the best way to navigate it all for us individually and within our families.
do you ever worry about sharing too much or too often? what about with a big event? have you ever been so sad you missed something because you got behind on your email or social media? it's the worst feeling to realize you didn't hear about something you'd really liked to have attended until after the event. here are some ways to embrace the happy broken record and serve others in the process.
I believe that the 2 Plans that were presented in the Great Council of Heaven, are still in effect (God’s Plan and Lucifer’s Plan). I believe that a large portion of Satan’s Plan is to stop our brothers and sisters from having an earthly experience. I believe he uses infertility to achieve his plan. Like many, I have suffered much because of infertility. So has my family. While I do believe it has and continues to help me become my best self, I do not believe that God caused my infertility. I believe God allowed environmental factors (some of my own choosing and others not of my choosing) to cause my infertility. I also believe that these environmental factors were not of God but of Satan. I believe that their design and methods of delivery also did not come from God, but that they were introduced to men and women by Satan.
