ARE YOU HEADING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION: WHICH WAY?

"There's a way that seem right to a man but the end thereof are ways of death" - Proverbs 14:12
.
There are several ways in life that many tread only to discover later that they have being headed in the wrong direction. Some would have the chance to correct their wrong way while for some, like the parable of the rich man and Lazarus, it'll be too late. 
.
The purpose of the way we tread in life is to get to a destination but many are moving in the way that will lead them to doom. 
.
Which way are you headed? 
.
There is a way into marriage. There is a way to eternity. There is a way to destiny fulfillment and there is a way to life. 
.
Do not forget that there are many ways in life to become married, there are several options to get to the afterlife, many are even heading in lots of ways to fulfill their own destiny or to make it in life. But let me ask you again, which way are you going? 
.
There's the right way and there's the wrong way to getting things done in life. There's the narrow way and there's the broad way. There's the way many people have found which is so accommodating and there's a way that is so constraining in which only very few people dare to tread. 
.
Any way that allows you to do what you want, when you want, how you want and where you want is not the right way. In fact, the society might give you the liberty to do what you want or tread the path you want because of the laws you're subjected to but in the end, you will discover the truth. 
.
Are you headed in the right way to marriage? The likes of dating, cohabitation, pregnancy induced marriage or premarital sex leading into marriage is not the right way. God has His way into all the issues of life and the world has its own way: which way are you headed? 
.
In life as you grow older, you will be entrusted with the power to choose where to spend your eternity and this power lies in the choice you make here on earth, to follow God or religion? Religion is the opium of the masses but God has His own way that leads men to the world beyond. 
.
Everyone in life is heading to one destination and the destination is to fulfill destiny. Your destiny is what God has predetermined or predestined you to become, are you close to Him to know that very thing He wanted you to become or you're following your own dreams, pursuit, vision or ambition? You do not become a failure in life if you lose your money in that business deal, you're not a failure if you failed several times while trying, you're not a failure even if you have a failed marriage, you become a failure when you fail to fulfill God's purpose for your life. 
.
Are you headed in the right direction in life? There are only two ways to getting things done in life: God's way or your own way which could be influenced by the society, your opinion about life or by those who influence you. 
.
Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. Jesus is the right direction to life, successful marriage, destiny and purpose fulfillment. If your life doesn't align to His, you're heading in the wrong direction. See, it doesn't matter how successful or prosperous you are in that direction, any way that allows you to do what you want is not God's way. 
.
Ask yourself this question: is the direction I'm heading in life the right one? Don't just hurriedly say yes, if you leave the world today, will the host of God's angel sing a processional welcome song for you or you will be welcomed by some horrific looking demons in the hordes of hell? Think deeply on this and make amends. 
.
Remember, you have the opportunity to retrace your steps back to the right direction if you have been walking confidently in the wrong direction. God loves you, this was why He gave you Jesus so that you won't perish but have everlasting life. 
.
Don't just be religious or a mere church goer, move in the right direction with Jesus!
