Actions and consequences on the journey

Actions matter, but in the end.. Believers are "good to go" and have nothing to fear. 

We seek relationship with others and with God.  Those relationships are strengthened by every trial, every failure, as well as every "good day".  I, like so many, tend to focus and want every day to be a good day, but that is just not likely to be a reality as long as we are here.  This is a vision of Heaven that I get very excited about.  "a peace that passes all understanding",  and image of the paradise model set forth in the Garden of Eden. 

I am bound by my world, to work, to produce, and to provide for myself, my family and my community. When I make good decisions, and act well, blessings may follow.

My faith reminds me that I am "beloved of God" just as David, was. I am likely to act poorly, and suffer consequences here, but the goal should be the journey, not the goal.

"It’s one of God’s great promises that he’s given to believers: We know all that happens to us is working for our good—if we love God and are fitting into his plans (Romans 8:28). If you're a believer, the Bible says all things are working together for good—not that all things are good—but working together for good."
