THE GRAPH of LIFE is NOT ALWAYS a STRAIGHT LINE…

Life is full of choices from the moment we wake up ‘til the time we close our eyes. We choose whatever path we will take and what decisions will we make. At times I am in the state of confusion, I always turn to God. I don’t want to go my own way because I know His plans are better than my plans and His thoughts are higher than my thoughts. In Him I can always gain strength and hope.

Mathematically speaking the graph of a linear equation y=mx + b is always a straight line, where m is the slope of the line (how steep the line is) and b is the y-intercept (where the line crosses the y-axis). The values of m and b changes but x will be consistent to be x. For me, x represents God in my life. He loves me so much and He promises that He will never leave me nor forsake me. When the slope of the line gets steeper and I am about to fall, I always cling on His promises because I know it’s true.He is faithful and just to fulfill His promises. He has proven Himself and His words in my life more than what I can ever imagine or hope for.

I know that the graph of life is not always a straight line, during the difficult times it might turn to a curve line, a broken line, may be a parabola or a hyperbola. When the straight line seems to vanish, I start to bow my knees and pray for I know that when I am weak He is strong. I pray for God’s wisdom to help me as I decide for major turns in my life.

In the way that I will choose to go with His guidance, I know that I will be successful…excelling in my chosen career as I live life with joy in my heart. Everything in this world vanishes and dies…beauty and strength fades…but a meaningful life and true love will live endure ‘til the end.

*I wrote this one last January 2007 (I can’t remember the exact date) when my relationship with my long distance boyfriend (now my husband for almost 5 years now) was going through the test of fire and at the same time, there was so much pressure at work.Praise God because we passed the test and we shine more for His glory.

    That’s a good mathematical analogy of your relationship to God. Hopefully, your relationship with God will also go to infinity.
