Choose Long Term Happiness Over Short Term Pleasure - Motivation & Inspiration - by Alfred

Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

    Life is all about choices.
    Everybody's life today is a result of the choices they made yesterday.
    God has given every man the ability to choose between right and wrong; life and death; blessing and cursing.
     God is not a tyrant or a dictator. He has given everyone the freedom to do anything in the world they want. They can even choose to do wrong.
      However, God is a fair God therefore there are consequences if you choose to do wrong. God in his kindness also warns you that there would be consequences if you do wrong for whatsoever a man sows he shall also reap. So God recommends to choose to do what's right and have the blessings that would follow that choice.
       This means that you can choose your own destiny, even though God has a preordained plan and destiny for you.
       This is dangerous. Now this is not about choosing "Death" or choosing to do something bad, it's about doing what Jonah did. It's about leaving God's plan for your life and going to do your own thing (which may even be a positive and even world changing thing. However, it is not what God wants you to do).
       God may want you to be a Business man, however you can go and become a Chef working in another man's Business. That's Dangerous.
       What you're doing (cooking food in this case) is not a sin. However, God had bigger and better plans for you elsewhere.
       Some people are so obsessed with jumping on every opportunity they see.
        The fact that a door of opportunity just opens up beside you doesn't mean you have to work through it.
         Be patient. Stick to God's plan for your life that you and the Holy Ghost are working together to get you closer to. Don't end up sacrificing your long term happiness for short term pleasure.

Don't Ask God How - a poem by Pastor Alfred

Don't ask God how, just take the first step/
God's dream for our dreams are too big to comprehend/
They always scare us and exceed boundaries of common sense/
Does God think more of us than we think of ourselves?/
If we stand and reason how to reach our Reserved Seat on Mountains/
Reality would get off its seat and slap us upside the head/...
