    Choices or Freewill?

    I can blame God.
    My father
    My mother
    For me being born
    For my gender
    for my race
    For my upbringing
    I didn’t have a choice.
    I can place the blame.

    As a human being
    I was born with a choice (freewill.)
    You can choose a God to worship
    To honor thy mother and father
    To believe or not to believe
    To succeed or fail
    To work or be lazy
    To purchase or to steal
    To be positive or negative
    To be hurtful or helpful

    Also to chose whom I will love
    Whom I will respect
    whom I will hug
    Whom I will kiss
    Whom I will dislike
    What I have stolen
    The lies I have told
    The people I have hurt.

    For these choices I can only blame myself
    I can blame my God, Father or mother
    My sister my brother or another
    I can blame the blame on a lot of things.
    In reality in Gods eyes
    I made the decision to live or die
    I was given freewill at birth
    As I was raised from a baby to a man
    I was taught choices take you to God or the boogeyman

    I was taught not to yield to temptation
    I was taught to fight against unwise, wrong or immoral thoughts
    To overcome temptation is to be one with God.
    Our choices are all that we can Control.
    Only during slavery can that control, be taken away.
    So, in the end you can only blame yourself.
    Right or wrong for the choice you’’ve made.
    A wrong choice is a sin.
    That can lead to death in the end.

    And if what we do and don’t do doesn’t matter a wit
    Then the life we are living isn’t worth a s––t.
    Because there would be no need for praise and punishment
    If life is nothingness, why would there be choices
    The Father doesn’t want someone to scare you
    Chase you or threaten you into his kingdom.
    The father wants you to enter with a pure Heart
    Using your choice and your freewill given from the start

    In the beginning was Desire
    We must always choose the right desire.
    A wrong choice can lead to a sin.
    The road to destruction will be your reward.
    A right choice will gain you praise in your father’’s house.
    God leaves it up to you.
    To repent and change on your own.
    To use your freewill.
    To make the right choice.
    To make the right sacrifice.
    So put this thought into your mind.
    Ask yourself, Who do I blame for using my free will and making the wrong choices?

    I like this, sometimes we regret the choices made, but usually, when we know better, we do better.
