Forks in the River

“There are always two choices.
Two paths to take. One is easy.
And its only reward is that it's easy." -Anonymous

Forks in the river happen frequently. Especially in the mountains. When forks occur the river is divided into two or more directions and sometimes the forks never meet up again. The fork that we choose to follow many times is permanent. The current can be swift enough that it's difficult too change your course after you've already made the choice to follow it. 

Different choices lead to different locations just as choices we make in life take us to different places. Some lead to happiness and contentment, others lead to difficulty and sadness.

The ability to choose was given to us by our Father in Heaven. We have choices to make all the time. Some have little consequence and some have eternal consequence.  He wants us to choose wisely. We need to know that there is a right and a wrong. Most of the time the easiest path in life seems to be the one that is wrong. For example many teens are peer pressured into doing things that they know aren't right. Sometimes it's easier to give in  to the pressure opposed to not and making a scene.

The great thing is that our Father in Heaven will always prepare the way so that we can choose the right. It may be difficult, but he'll always support us as we stick to our guns and follow the path that He would want us to, the path that Jesus Christ walked before us.

Remember that through the atonement of Christ we can change our paths. We can change and repent even if we feel there is no hope. It takes extra work, but it can be done through his love and grace.

This very day I'd like to Invite You to Choose the Right.
In the long run I promise you'll never regret it.
