Doing What is Right Pays Off

Life may not be fair, but you can still make the best of it!

In each age cycle in life whether a baby, a teen, adult or senior we face different challenges. I cant imagine being born today and my parents or doctor can’t decide if Im a male or female.

How about missing the college you dreamed and worked your butt off to get there, only to find out some parent bribed the admissions to get their ‘spoiled entitled’ kid into the school. How heartbreaking for the hard honest student. I wonder how many coaches have been paid off to have their kid on the starting varsity team.

Perhaps you missed that promotion or raise you deserved, but it went to an unqualified or dishonest person.

I can’t help but think of the local man a couple years ago put in prison for 32 years only to know find out he was innocent. This is tough to handle for 32 years of innocence, yet the man is free, and happy to be free.

The best we can do is what is right, do your best, and be honest. Honesty is such a lonely word as the song says. If people are dishonest in the little things they will be dishonest period. It doesn’t matter how much a person justifies their dishonest action, it’s just not right. People lie to get ahead, but eventually it will blow up in their face and catch up to them.

If you have failed in this area make it right with God, with yourself, and the person or entity you cheated.

Why? You will be doing the right thing and have peace and God will be at peace with you. You will become a better person and people will be able to trust you again, but not always the case.

For those who have been shafted or cheated on the best a person can do is to forgive them and move forward. You also will have peace and not become bitter, but better for doing what is right.

Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice”.
Proverbs 16:8 NKJV

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
