Choices- Gratitude Day 2
Today, this moment in your life, is the accumulated product of all the yes' and no's that you have made since you were able to make decisions. Think about it; your friends, your spouse or boyfriend or girlfriend, the activities you partake in, your weight, your career or job...all of it is the result of what you said yes or no to. Your spiritual, physical and mental state has all been influenced by decisions. Sometimes the decisions we make result in excellent memories and moments in our lives. And there are also those moments where the decisions made didn't result in things we want to remember at all. It is all a part of your story.
I love that the Lord has given us the free will to make choices. That each of us live a unique journey of our own yes' and no's in this space in time. And I am so grateful that the Lord gave His one and only Son to redeem the poor choices, to raise us up and call us His sons and daughters...if we choose Him. There we go again...another choice.
Romans 10: 6-7 says, "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."
Maybe today, the choice that is still hanging out there is the choice to choose Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
This choice is very different than any choice you have ever made before. This decision is the only one that results in the gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus (Romans 6:23).
Today, I am grateful for choices and free will. I encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the choices you have made throughout your life and thank God for your unique story.
And if you are looking for redemption of poor choices or are tired of making decisions on your own, ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior.
The choice is is yours, the possibilities endless.
