Choice

Something has been on my mind and heart lately. How do I live this life in light of God’s greatness? In other word’s, is anything in my life meaningful compared to Him? Shouldn’t I sell everything and live my life telling everyone I see about Him? Is anything short of that worthless?

The short answer is, no. I have said this before. God is so patient with me. God has shown me through His Word, through other people, through songs, and through books that our life is all about choices. Small choices that may lead up to a big choice down the road.

The Bible says to pray without ceasing, to live a life of thankfulness, to teach our children about Him, to love and respect our spouse, to serve each other, and many other lessons. These are choices we make. So, when I am working on some seemingly mundane task like sweeping the floor, it does not have to be just that. It can be a blessing to my family or my coworkers and an act of worship to God. All we have is now. We may not have tomorrow. Right now I can worship.

Staying connected can be difficult. There are so many distractions. How do you stay connected?

John 15:4 ESV Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ESV Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Deuteronomy 11:18-19 ESV  “You shall therefore lay up these words of Mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

James 4:13-17 ESV Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit” – yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is a sin.
