Discovering what love is one day at a time
I am pro choice meaning…I am for choosing (not to be confused with the euphemism pro-choice which stand is for abortion)…I am for choosing God’s standards…His Word says “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing therefore choose life” …choose this day whom you shall serve…we get to choose if God is our King or not…we get to choose if we will love Him, obey His voice, and cling to Him recognizing that He is our life, and the length of our days… Truth is…HE IS whether we agree with that or not.
I have lived my life without Him as King, and there were many facets of my life that did not fare well...yet by God’s grace and mercy I am still alive today, and He now is my King; therefore His Word is the boundaries and standard I choose to live by.
God has always given us a choice and the freedom to choose.
I wonder if people get confused when, they see two different beliefs operating in the body of people that call themselves Christians… (This means follower of Christ.) A true follower is one who holds the standard of the One they are following with the highest regard. I wonder what it is like for someone watching…who hears the Word of God being spoken and yet the life that they are watching is lived out completely different than what His Word says.
I think it is confusing…So I wonder if my life is confusing to others.
I know that I have not arrived at perfection and that I never will, because this body is made of flesh. When I die, or when Christ returns, my prayer is that He will say well done.
I know that I have not already attained or am already perfected, but I know that when my heart is convicted, I go back to Him and desire to remove the thing He has pointed out to me. Purposefully determining to follow His standard to the best of my ability and by the power of the Holy Spirit, I know that I can walk in victory in areas of sin if I am willing to repent, surrender, submit, and obey Him; pressing on to lay hold of that which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no shadow of turning.
God has set the standards in which we are to live by. We have a choice in the matter if we are going to live by them or not. We can chose to speak His Name with great reverence, and have our life mirror that, we can walk the fence and live lives with a double standard, and we can even reject Him with our words and our lives or any combination of the above… but the Truth is this…For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whosever should believe in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. He has set the standard. He has provided the way. His Word says” I am the Way the Truth and the Life no one comes to the Father except through Me”. His Word also says…”For in Him we live and move and have our being”…my heart’s desire is that my life would not be confusing to any one that is looking for Him. That the words that I speak and the actions that I do would lead others to Christ and not far from Him…
I love that we get the freedom to choose…What are you choosing?
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have two young men ages 18 and 13.. This blog is somewhat of a journal and attempt for me to keep a purposeful perspective on life as a whole.
