The Journey is…Simple

As a Christian…all my life’s decisions simply boil down to this one thought:

“IF I DO THAT, WILL MY CHOICES BRING ME & THOSE I LOVE CLOSER TO THE LORD?”

Now that’s a simple thought.

It’s my choice:

If I continue to eat every snack cake in the cabinet…does that show my kids that the Lord helps us do hard things? Yes….at this moment in my life…I consider self control & my food choices a hard thing 🙂

If I react to life with worry or fear…is that proving my complete trust in the Lord who perfects those things that concern me?

If I let those words come out of my mouth…are they going to minister grace to the hearer?  Am I being a living example of the Love of God?

If the Lord leads me to do something (as in RUN)…and I keep making excuses….nobody benefits.  The people that the Lord intended to be ministered to, including myself, are not drawn closer to the Lord through the life I am living.

Do my actions backup my beliefs?   My choices must line up with God’s Word…if they do…we will all be drawn closer to our God who loves us!  He gives us the POWER to put action to our beliefs!  SIMPLE!

Deuteronomy 30:19-20

“…I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling  to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days”

  1. Very well said Julia. Simple yet so many times myself and others fail to see that all it takes is a decision to do what is right, what God is speaking to us. The grace and Ability is waiting on a simple choice
    Good work. Ilu, Matt
