TITLE: Obey? Maybe Not!

I have always been a rather obedient person. The teen years brought on a little rebellious spirit, but considering I grew up in the 60's, it was pretty tame. Even then I was careful my way of thinking, which has always been different than the norm, didn't hurt the ones I loved.

I found trying to do the right thing or figuring out what the right thing was, could bring on a discouraging spirit.

It was easy to be obedient in feeling cynical; discouragement and that very nasty beast that truly demands obedience--depression.

For the first time I had to face the fact there were all kinds of obedience monsters calling out my name. It took years to figure out when to listen and when to ignore.

I still don't always get it right. But it doesn't bother me anymore. Worry was the first monster I kicked out the door.

I also liked the reference to obedience mosters. I think I would have enjoyed some specific anecdotes to illustrate them.

I liked how you kicked the monster "out the door".

We all have to learn to hear His voice, don't we? Thanks for sharing,
