Your walk with God does not depend on people, places, things or events. It simply depends on you!
People can tell you what you should say or do, but if you’re not interested or don’t hear them how will they affect your life?
You can attend church every week, but if you’re not receptive to God’s message that is preached each week, you won’t grow in your spiritual relationship with God.
Events may happen that result in your life changing direction, but if that direction is not God’s direction, it’s down to you to say no.
Everything that happens in your life can affect you in many ways, so it really is down to you whether you let those things draw you closer to God to turn you from Him.
I pray that in everything that happens in your life, you will turn to God in praise, turn to Him for comfort and turn to Him for guidance.
