I want to exercise my free will. If my free will is only valid as long as it coincides with his will, then I'm exercising his free will, and
that's not good enough for me. Don't give me a brain and tell me not to use it.
This is why I say that depending on the condition of our hearts, we're given multiple chances.
Just as an example, I exercised my free will once, only to be faced with the exact same situation that I was trying to ignore twice more after that.
God will allow us our free will, but that's not to say that he doesn't bring circumstances back into our lives over and over again (history repeating
itself) to get us to look back, evaluate the situation again and use our brains to see where our choices might be causing us and people around us more
harm than good. I think if we truly evaluate the situation, we'll probably find that what's good for us and everyone else will pretty much match up
with God's will. In the end, we're either aligning our free will up with good or evil whether we think we are or not.
I think some of us would be a lot happier to take a "Life Counseling" session to sit down and discuss matters with him face to face instead of
talking to the sky and wondering if that little nagging in the back of our mind is his finger trying to get our attention. We're a rough, clumsy
species...using such a subtle means of communication is just mean.
Sometimes we only think it's subtle. If we really took the time to sit down and analyze our lives and the events in them, we'd probably see it
clearer. We have to ask ourselves, is history repeating itself? Do certain issue just refuse to go away and surface everywhere I go? Are there
times I could have easily died or should have died and didn't? Why does this annoying person keep popping up in my life? Why does this annoying
thought keep popping up in my head? These are just questions we need to ask ourselves that we either don't think of or don't want to ask ourselves.
