Sermon: Does This Make the Boat go Faster?

It’s your choice

It’s Your Choice

Deuteronomy 30:14-18 (NKJV)

14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.15 “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, 16 in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. 17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess.

God never forces us to do anything. It’s always a choice. As you read the text above you’ll notice that we were given two options. One to choose life and good or two to choose death and evil. Seems pretty straight forward right. (Who would knowingly choose death and evil? ) The text goes on and gives instructions. Now I bet that everyone who is reading this post definitely chose the option of life and good. But when the description is given on how to attain that……did you feel a tiny bit uneasy. Let’s break this down a bit. Verse 16 “In that I command you to love the Lord your God” Amen!! Check that one off of the list!!! Of course, I love God! That’s an easy one! Let’s continue.. “to walk in His ways, to keep His commandments, His statues, and His judgements ” hmmm…..I try my best, but do I really follow Him the way I should. I mean I go to church on Sundays, I go to Bible study, I try not to yell at my kids to much (TRY, lol) I try to be a good example. I mean I tried to be the Proverbs 31 women, but let’s face it I can’t sow. I buy my kids clothes at the store, and Im guilty of giving my family fast food from time to time. I try to be a good wife, that one who is always lifting up her husband and supporting him 100%. I want to be that woman that is in Ephesians 6 always respecting and not nagging her husband…. And I do pretty good. And I question from time to time am I setting the right example for my girls…Am I being the Naomi to their Ruth? I know I fall short. But it doesn’t mean I choose death and evil. I’m here to encourage you. As a believer you have been given the choice to turn back to Him at any time. To lay your life at His feet. Honey He knew that you couldn’t do it alone. He knew that you would need His help. He knew that our flesh would go against what was good for us. That’s why He sent his son to die for us. That’s why He sent the Holy Spirit to reside in us! Life is always a choice when you choose to surrender.
Be encouraged today!!

Reflections

1 Corinthians 13:12

New International Version (NIV)

12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

Reflections

When you look in the mirror what do you see?

For years when I looked in the mirror I saw failure, defeat, low self esteem, a variety hurts and scars. I seen a little girl scared of the world, scared to love, scared to trust, scared to be herself, and scared of what others thought of her. I managed my life like a coward filled with an overwhelming sense of pride, not willing to face what entangled me in fear. What kept me in bondage to self. It was easier to hide, to pretend, and to ignore.

However, my heavenly father had another plan in store. He knew how I seen myself didn’t reflect the way he seen me. How much he loved me, how much he grieved for me, and how much he wanted to heal me. But I was distracted from his call, I wasn’t listening to his voice, and I was angry at him for how my life had been.

He did what any father would do to rebellious child, he disciplined me. In love. He put me in a position where I had nothing else to rely on no where else to turn but to him.

He stood before me with his arms open waiting for an embrace…however it seemed like I tiptoed towards him. Slowing dropping chain after chain. Getting a taste for more freedom with every step. Trusting a little more with ever move. Raising my face from shame. Changing from a scared little girl into a women fearing only the Lord. Before I knew it His arms were tightly wrapped around me in a mighty embrace. Telling me my child I love you and I always have and I always will.

Today when I look in the mirror a see a child of the most high God. And I may have many battle scars but I wear them with joy knowing what each one stands for. Knowing that each one of them mean victory :-)!!
