Have you ever wondered about people? The people that we are? The people that we become and why we become the people that we do ? I have a thought process when it comes to people. Do we ever really know who they are? I believe that we show who we want people to see, but their true identity we may never know. Because of this you can question a person’s intent, doubt their sincerity and hide behind the images yourself of what you project.
Who are you really? That’s the topic of discussion to day. We are not able to know the heart of people , Only God knows that. We are to trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not to our own understanding in all our ways we are to acknowledge him and he will direct our path (Proverbs 3:5-6). A familiar verse for many where Trust leads. Yet every day no matter how well intended we inadvertently become subject to our own guidance and direction. We question and doubt every decision we make. We become subject to our own inabilities to trust, to design objectively, a blind faith.
What would our lives look like if we were truly walking in blind faith. To embrace or identify with the role in life we are designed for? To never question change of direction or chsnge of mind? Imagine if our sight was gone and we had to reply on our other senses to see for us. The mere fact that our eyes see allow us to react to our “seeing” responses. We all do it and more than likely if we see we don’t like it, we change our mind, right? What happens when we run into people who we later in life regret that we ever met (avoidance)? I mean we gravitate towards good looking people right, based on what we see, until we see what’s not external. And sometimes that’s not real pretty.
What about our decisions on career changes? I mean statistically (they say) a person will change their career path 5 to 7 times within the span of their life. I mean that doesn’t seem very secure in purpose. Yet it is a known fact that a percentage of people who start their career early undoubtedly will shift into different arenas over time. Why, material gratification or choice. Or just outright lack of satisfaction or we realize it’s not a good fit for what your goals were, shifting thought. Change.
What if we knew when we married that that person will change and the question becomes, who are you ? Yet we take vows to love to cherish for better or worse, in sickness and health, until death do we part. Yet divorce courts lineup with people every day who just can’t take it anymore because the worse got the best of them.
Who are you, really? I mean change happens in all of us, we must adjust as the chapters of our lives change. Some commitments must stay constant, however, to know who we are or who we interact with its a constant change, like escalators functioning up and down.
Maybe it’s just me who questions these adjustable movements. Maybe it’s just me who wants to find truth in this life, stablilty, moreso. But I don’t think it’s just me. I believe that everybody wants peace, that surpasses all understanding, to live positively, to live abundantly and to love without walls. To create an environment that will allow us to live in truth. To believe in people again.
