In an effort to please my family this holiday season, I made a decision in favor of them. The down side? I am unhappy.
This is typically not the biggest ordeal in the world, but my lack of happiness stems from being out of alignment with God, and that is not something anyone should enjoy.
I chose to make my family happy. Bad idea? Not on the surface, but spiritually speaking, the decision sets me apart from God’s will, and that’s the problem. In the process of this situation, God continually tries to teach me how to seek His approval, and not man’s. Even our families will come against us when we make decisions for Christ.
Are you ready for the battle?
I learn more everyday….
