Everyday we make decisions without Our Lord. How does it feel when people you are close to make decisions that affect you without having consulted you. Imagine, then ,how Christ feels.

One voice builds you up and one voice tears you down. Often the right thing to do, the thing that builds you up, is the hardest thing to do. But, you KNOW in your heart which voice is which. The most beautiful thing about life is that we get to choose which voice we adhere to. Listen to Him.
