I know that this doesn't always mean that my plan are going to work out the way that I want them to. Sometimes I am going to fail, or something is going to happen to block my way, but this doesn't mean that I am going to give up and say "well I guess God didn't want me to do that." No, if it is something that I really want to do I am going to pick myself back up and try again.
Growing up I was always really confused about what I was supposed to do. I could never figure out what God's plan was for my life. It seemed as if I was playing a huge game of guess and check with God. I never seemed to get a clear answer like some of my other Christian friends said they got. I was told that I wasn't praying hard enough or studying the Bible often enough. So I would try to get closer to God, but still I wouldn't get any clear answers. This was all very frustrating and scary for me. I thought that God didn't care about me, or that maybe I wasn't saved at all since I wasn't getting answers like all my friends.
Now that I am an Atheist I feel free to make my own decisions and write my own life. I know that I am not following a script that has been written for me. My life has a lot of empty pages that I can use to live out all my dreams. I really wish that everyone knew they are the only ones that hold the key to the rest of their lives.
