The CHOICE is YOURS

Deuteronomy 30:19-20

This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love The Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For The Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 


Let's be completely honest with ourselves. What is the most important thing to you? Is it your job? Is it your desire to be popular or the best at anything you do? Is it your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife ? Is it your hobby or dream car/house? The questions of priorities could go on and on!


Here is something awesome to really soak in. Whatever occupies your attention, your time, your energy, your thoughts........ THAT is what you are serving!!! Whatever you are serving will in the long run determine how life could go for you. And if you are serving something other than God life is not going to go good for you!


Joshua 24:15
Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. 


Here is a thought- Choose God! Yes it is a choice! The bible states it very clearly. Choose to put your time and energy into creating a closer relationship with God. Make a choice to read his word and pray and talk with God. Let him take control of your life. You will find out that your life will go a lot better when God is at the center of it!

  1. You are correct Mandy! So many people including myself sometimes choose our problems of the day over choosing God! I think we all get caught up in the troubles of our day and should always remember to regroup and focus on someone who can take care of it ALL!!!! I choose God.... I choose LIFE!!!!
