More often than not, it is said that choices have consequences. The question is; does this assertion stand or hold any meaningful truth? Well, while we are free to make choices for our actions, we are not free to control the consequences of our actions. I truly believe God created us as human beings not just to exist but also live happily by using all the necessities made available at our disposal for fulfillment and enjoyment. As humans, we have a discretion to choose the way we want to live our life. We were created with a mind free to choose. God created man and woman with the freedom to choose and also gave them the moral ability to determine how such daily choices will shape their destiny. This reaffirms that, we are free to choose our actions but we are not free from the consequences of your choices.
It is upon us to define how we flourish in life. This means, it is important to attract what you expect, reflect what you desires, become what you respect and mirror what you admire. God also gave man and woman the ability to think for himself or herself. This is what enables us to distinguish between what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, we have the opportunity to make choices that genuinely affect our destiny. Remember we are free to choose our actions but we are not free from the consequences of our choices.
We have the power to create and experience the quality of life we truly desire and need. One of the most incredible gifts given to us by God is the power to choose. Whether we know it or not, we all utilize this power which can be referred to as a “surface level form of power.” With this power, our choices are founded on many things such as what to do, what to think, whom to marry, what time to go to sleep, what television program to watch, where to work, what to eat, whether we live in a home or in an apartment, what model of car to drive, what to wear and among others
Now that you have the power to choose, it is important to remember that we are free to choose our actions but we are not free from the consequences of our choices.
Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside our being will choose or rely on our actions. So often we forget the power we hold within us to control the path to our actions. In life, it is all about how choices we make influence what we become and how the direction of our lives comes down to those choices we make. The journey to tread in our life depends on our choices because now we are free to choose our actions but we are not free from the consequences of our choices.
Ronald Regan, who is a former President of the United States of America, once said that a mind that is free to choose will always choose peace. However, this does not mean that our choices are limited to a few options but rather a foundation they depends on a state of mind and the perceived outcomes. Today, people choose different courses of action. What is evil will always be rebutted by what is evil and an action carried out with good intentions will always be rewarded accordingly. It doesn’t matter how long it takes but reward for any action will always be in the offing. That’s why we are free to choose our actions but we are not free from the consequences of your choices.
