When a young person makes poor choices in life it can be a very sad situation. It is even more sad when they have been shown a new way of life by the gifts of love and grace in their life. Everyone makes decisions on what is best for them and sometime those decisions aren’t always healthy or safe. It is even worse when those choices put other people at risk. You also see situations where people take things that don’t belong to them or damage property. To me its disheartening that people find themselves in a place of despair and choose to stay there. People need hope and joy in their lives now more than ever.
There are many things in life that make you shake your head. We are living in a world full of chaos and turmoil. Our lives are scheduled to the minute and our priorities are not what they once were. People work harder, longer for less. The reality of it all is a nightmare. Friends we once were tight with are now strangers. We seem to be full of suspicion and short on love. We don’t need TV to see drama because its being played out for real in our lives.
There is hope though. We can choose be the change we want to see. Instead of fussing and fighting we can have friendships. We can slow our lives down and make people a priority. Spending less so we don’t have to work longer and harder. Keeping our friendships sacred instead of disposable. Trusting people more and showing our hearts for them. Avoiding the drama of life and learning to laugh.
