Forgive me, that should be, “When Deity Approaches You”.
I’ve been a part of a discussion on another forum where someone pledged themselves to a particular deity and is now regretting the decision. It didn’t turn out the way they thought it would.
I’m a firm believer in the idea that when a deity chooses you, they have a purpose for you. Maybe they are just calling you to worship them, but sometimes there is a particular purpose and you aren’t walking away from them until that purpose has been fulfilled. I was kidnapped by a particular Goddess and I know that that is one of the reasons that I ended up in New Orleans. While I have no particular upset with this particular spiritual kidnapping, I also knew what was up and know that while I was a part of the whole thing, I was definitely not the instigator.
Personally, I don’t think you get to make promises like those and just try to walk away from them when they don’t work out the way you want them too. I think that if you pledge service to a particular deity, you’re honor bound to deal with the consequences. To be a person of honor and of your word, you have to keep those sorts of promises.
