You’re doing fine, but we can improve.

You’re doing fine, but we can improve.
.
I am grateful for conversations with my grandparents. Today, I had a chance to talk to my grandma. We talked a little about hope and current events.
.
She has always encouraged my writing and reads everything I write. Usually, she takes the time to respond to my thoughts.
.
My grandma said this about my writing.
.
“It’s been an amazing outlet for you, and I don’t know about others, but some of what you share really gets me pondering different areas of my life and mistakes I’ve made.”
.
This was my reply to her.
.
“I want people to ponder and know that things will be okay, and there is still time to make significant life changes.
.
Our life experiences, some good and some bad make us the unique sons and daughters of God that He wanted.
.
We are all different, and we are all on earth to help each other with the mistakes and successes we have made.
.
It’s inevitable—we will make a mistake. He wants us to grow from those mistakes and help others who may go through the same mistakes or help others avoid our same mistakes.”
.
That was a small portion of our conversation. I share this with you because it’s okay to be different. It is okay for us to take ”the road less traveled.”
.
Being disciples of Jesus Christ is hard. “The road more often traveled” is the easy way, more stable way, but “the road less traveled” the road Jesus Christ wants us to take; that’s the road which will yield fruitful results.
.
Free yourself from the conformity of others. Jesus Christ invites us, also—“follow me, and I will make you fishers of men,” “they straightway left their nets,” “forsook all, and followed him” (Matthew 4:19, 20; Luke 5:11; see also Mark 1:17–18).
.
You’re doing fine, but as you leave your nets and everything else to follow Christ, you will improve your life more than you can comprehend.
.
Hear Him!
