“Everybody else is doing it.”
“You’re not everybody else.
You are My child.”
Go to the fence and look over it. Can you see the green pastures? What do you see? Isn’t it pretty over there? Wouldn’t you like to live over there and walk those paths? I’ve laid out your life over there for you. All that remains is for you to walk through the gate and keep walking. Do you believe me or not?
That is the life I’ve given you. You can either live it or stay where you are. You can press forward and move on or stay stuck where you’re at. The choice is yours. What do you want? Do you want it bad enough to go through what you have to go through in order to get it? I’ll walk with you. I’ll help you. I’ve done all I can do, the rest is up to you. You don’t have to do it alone, but I can’t make the choice for you.
Do you wonder why you are here? I didn’t put you here, you did. I put you over there in my plan. But you didn’t want to follow my plan. You wanted to make your own way and that’s how you got where you are. I’m still willing to let you live there, but you have to choose to go there. It starts in your mind and then your body follows.
You keep getting it backwards. You have these notions of how you think it’s supposed to be. Your notions aren’t right. I know how it’s supposed to be. You either come over to my way of thinking or you stay stuck where you are. I gave you the world by the tail, take what I’ve offered or stay where you’re at.
