Great quote Ashley. I, too, find that life is a constant process of being open and available for questioning beliefs and opinions. For me I find that God often challenges me, much as my parents did, to choose the path that leads to the greatest level of contentment and joy (all the while knowing that I will make some lousy decisions along the way that will destroy that contentment and joy).
Within my Christian faith there are many people who have very strong beliefs that often are more reflective of what a “christian leader” has told them to believe. I, too, once fell into that group – not malicious towards anyone else – it was just what we were told to belive. Then a point came in my life where I realized that life doesn’t always fall easily into the “black and white” category but is an endless series of decisions that fall into the “gray”.
As my best friend and I say, we would love to be able to live the life where things are cut and dried. It is a comfortable place in which to live. But we both know that it is not in our make-up now to live life in a perpetual state of always having the “right” answer. The first is a life much easier to live but the latter is a more authentic way to live.
Thanks for sharing!
