Lessons From The Goose

We can take many lessons from the nature God created. Here are a few lessons from the formation Geese make as they fly North and South seasonally.


# 3. Whenever a goose falls out of the formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to fly alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.


Lesson: If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation with those who are headed where we want to go.

You make a lotta sense, steve.
At first I thought leaving mytribe would be best, but doing so would only separate me from the men who love me most, at a time when i need it most.

I don't need any more drag in my life, i have already experienced dragging others downward.

keep it real, bruther

As i reread the last sentence i realized a simple truth for me. I see the power of the bird up front.
For me this bird is CHRIST.
for far too long, and for far too long a distance, i ignored his power to lift me from my sin.
from my dispair, from my addiction to porn.

i now see how my addiction changed new masters. i went from one, naked ladies, to another, the rush of being pursued and pursuing what is forbidden. i thought it was about her, but it now i see it wasn't ... it was about the kick. the rush, the adrenaline.

i still made the terrible, horrible choice to pursue forbidden fruit, but now i am slowly making a return to what is really love, AND THAT IS GOD.

Now I don't think it was just the pursuit, cause she was my friend. I valued many things. I guess I fell for the girl, I really believed I had strong emotions. I would've sworn I did.

But that was then. Love always seeks another greatest & highest good, I certainly didn't show love for my good friend, his wife, their kids, etc

Nor did I show love to my bride, I'm fact I showed great evil towards her. i certainly didn't show love for my 3 amazing kids.

Sorry to post so much, Steve, but I felt I needed to detoxify some more.
