As I was doing my yearly look at the past year. It occurred to me. What would God say about what I did or didn't do in my life. I had never looked at it this way before.
God opens the book of life.
God; "So Louis, why did you not take the opportunities I offered you? It was exactly what you wanted."
Me; " I know. I really wanted to and knew it would be best for me and my family. But I was scared. I did not want to fail. I wanted to be perfect and make no mistakes.
God; " You know you are not perfect, I am the only one who is perfect. That was selfish of you. You denied Me, you denied your family and others. Many others could have been saved if you would have taken my opportunity. In the beginning I knew you were not ready. But you did work on yourself for awhile. You took the easy way out. I am the only one who can judge you. No one else has the right to judge you. I know you did try somewhat, but not hard enough. You are responsible for your own choices,
I gave you free will. I spoke to you in your sleep. I sent you dreams, dreams about the life I had for you. But you did not listen.......
