10,000 Ways to Die

My pastor shared this morning that on a recent Barbara Walters special regarding heaven, she stated that there are now 10,000 religions in the world. 10,000 is a pretty insane number. Especially when you consider that 9,999 of them are wrong and their path to heaven is incorrect. Right now you are probably expecting that I am going to tell you why Christianity is the 1 right one. Well I am not. I am asking you to do a personal evaluation.

Are you 100% sure that your way is the right way? Is there are any doubt in your mind that you may not end up in heaven after following your religion’s doctrine? You should be positive. If you are not, you need to get with your church leader or a trusted friend and ask the hard questions. You should also be able to find some supporting historical documents to back up your beliefs and not be completely blind. Look into your literature and study it for yourself.

I read my Bible and study it for myself. I read other supporting literature including that of other religions. I can say that I am 100% positive my spot in heaven is secure and you can too!

Who’s Direction Am I Taking

I think every Christian has walked a path in which they started second guessing whether it was God leading or them pushing. We pray and seek God’s wisdom. We ask for advice from trusted people in our circles. We slowly step down the path. Then there comes a time when it isn’t going the way we thought it would. Now what?

I am there right now. Through much prayer and advice, I followed a path I felt God orchestrated. But as I am walking, I am doubting myself. Did I want it so bad that I thought I heard God’s direction and now I should stop? Or was it really God leading and I just need to keep going?

This blog post is just me thinking out loud. I actually hope to hear from readers. Share your experiences and offer any advice you believe to be sound.

As for me now, I sit and wait. I pray harder. I trust my initial decision was right and not only will God continue to lead me down this path, but He will rid me of my doubt. 

I am so thankful to know that God’s will for my life is perfect. Even when I don’t have it figured out, He already has!
