If I’d Made a Different Decision?

I recently went to a Writer’s Workshop. This workshop was at Christian Retreat where I live. They did an exercise on opening night in the last 15 minutes that I thought was rather interesting. We had to write about a decision that we’d made and how things might be different had we made a different decision. Mine wasn’t picked as one of the best or maybe they thought it was too personal (as they shared some were) but I liked what I wrote anyway and thought I would share it with you.

“If I hadn’t sold the LSD that got me arrested? God would have had to teach me so many lessons in so many different ways than He taught me through that decision. It would have taken me so much longer to open up to Him, to fall, to let Him have me, to realize He was waiting, reaching into the pit with his outstretched hand. Then I would not have sat and listened to Him, fallen in love with Him and yearned to show others the way out of the pit and into His arms.”
