Choose life

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:– Deuteronomy 30:19

I choose life. There was a time in my life I wanted to give up. I was going through a terrible storm and I could not see my way out. Everything was going against me. My sons were in left field, my bills were out of hand, and I was going to a job that I hated. There was no relief. Day in and day out I was in this storm. It was such a struggle that I hated to see daylight come because I had to faced this storm over and over again. I was in my bed crying out to God. I can’t take this any longer, just take me! I give up. I don’t know what to do or how to do it and I’m tired of being in this situation. Yes, I messed up. But God in a small quiet voice said to me that if I died, life still goes on. Yes my sons will and can make it without me, and I will become just a memory to them as life goes on. Bills will always be there, but I need to learn how to make better choices. My job, yes I hated it. But it is my livelihood, and I must changed my attitude in how I look at it. I had to take control of a situation that had gotten out of hand, with the help and strength of God. I begin to pray and seek Him to ask for direction. And He did just that. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct your paths. So don’t give up. You are closer to your breakthrough then you think. Choose life!

  1. Right on! God is always there waiting for us to be obedient and cry out to him in time of need. The serman at church on Sunday spoke about how Jesus set the standard for a Christian life. We in our disobedience have preverted what the original intent of prosperity and happiness were all about. Its not about us. It’s about Christ. Yes, I went home with egg on my face, repented and now I have a new focus. Stop the pitty party and march on baby. March on.

  2. I am so grateful to God that this person chose life. I know we have all been there and it’s how we choose to handle it and turn it over to God that brings us all closer together. I’m loving how you have turned it around. May God continue to bless you.
