Proverbs of a 39 yr old man

I did it God's Way. The end of all things is near. And so we face the final curtain call. My friend, I will say this loud and clear, I will state my case of which I am certain. I want to come to my last days saying I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Living a life that's full of Holy Spirit overflowing. Listen to my heart, I have traveled each and every highway and more, but I stayed the course towards the straight and narrow. Much more than this, I did it God's way. Regrets, I have had a few, I wish only to have given more honor and praises to God for everything He has done for me in my life. Many times I have done what I thought I had to do and saw it through without exemption. I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway, asking God to direct my steps in the process. And more, much more than this, I did it God's way. Yes, there were times when I bit off more than I could chew. But through it all, when there was doubt. I ate it up and spit it out. I faced it all and I stood tall because I knew I was doing it God's way. I've loved, I've laughed and cried, and I have had my fill, my share of losing. And now, as tears subside, I contemplate all that Jesus is still doing for me and preparing for me. He has helped me develop a humble smirk through it all. And to think I did all that and may I say, not in a shy way. God's way. And I will continue to do this life God's way! So many times in the past I did things my way instead of Yahweh's, and reaped sin and destruction in my life. This because there is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Doing things your way may give you praises here on Earth. But doing things Gods way is true wealth because He adds no sorrow to it. He gives the peaceable fruit of Righteous that even reaps praises in Heaven. Sadly, in the process of doing things your way you have hurt a lot of people and dishonored the Living Word of God Himself. Jesus gave his life for us so that we could stop living for ourselves and start doing things God's way. Being slaves to righteousness and no longer slaves to sin. For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
