Joshua 24:15 New International Version (NIV)
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Blessed shall you be when you go out........
INSIDE MY HOUSE ~
Are walls built for freedom
In life we should carry an attitude of knowing God is able. Throughout life, we carry somethings that we were never meant to carry. I love how the Bible speaks this: :But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." I can make a decision to follow the Lord's path for my life or handle things my way. I tried my way and it only messed up my life. I went running back to Jesus, asking forgiveness and moving forward. Life is too short to stay stuck on the negative things of life. I am possible that Jesus loves me and loves you too.
My house isn't always the building I live in, but my soul. It's the walls that hold my thoughts and my own decisions can push me forward or hold me back. There is freedom in God and knowing he is able to handle my now of life. I look back to yesterdays to see how far God has brought me. There were days alone, crying and wonder. My own mistakes was the why of things. People tend to blame God for things, but he give us free will to make our own choices. Not all my choices have been good ones and neither have yours. I know this because the Bible says we have all sinned. I know there is freedom because God gives another chance.
BUILD YOUR THOUGHTS ON TRUTH ~
The truth is inside the Bible and knowing God is able
Psalm 16:11 English Standard Version (ESV)
11 You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
FULLNESS OF JOY ~
Inside my head is fullness of joy. I know that God helps us get back up in life. I know that God forgives and forgets. I know that one life makes a difference. Each of us carry an attitude of something. Maybe that joy, sorrow, feelings of loss, not know why of things, or maybe living in a new normal of hard. Yet, through it all, I have learned to trust the Lord. I care about people and I know that just a little hope can carry a person a long way. Looking through the walls of sadness to see a brighter day.
Yesterday, the sun was out and it was a beautiful day. All of a sudden, the sky started getting darker and the rain came. I wasn't expecting that rain because I didn't see rain on my weather app. It clearly shown me the power of God once again. Who controls the weather? Only God can do this and only God can help in all days of life. Build your house upon the ROCK JESUS and allow him freedom to mold you. Being molded into a better person daily and don't grow bitter. Life changes for each of us. Some days are just hard and others are better.
My life will live in peace of mind inside my house and outside my house. I will chose to believe in greater and encourage others. I will rest in knowing God has my now and my forever. I hope you do too.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
