Psalm 27:4 New International Version (NIV)
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
JUST BECAUSE ~
I decided to follow God ways, it has changed my life forever.
Never allow one negative decision to stop you. All of us make mistakes and wonder why we did somethings in life. Yet, the plan of God continues to unfold and greater is a new day. The Bible says:
1 John 4:4 New International Version (NIV)
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
Life is short and we must live in a new day with freedom that God gives us. Freedom of mind and knowing a new day brings new thoughts. There is power in the name of Jesus. Your decisions in a new day makes a huge difference. Other people watch our lives and our examples become important to them. I wonder how many of us do something for ourselves. Taking time to seek the Lord and praise the Lord in all things. I have learned over time that my one decision is a big decision. Will I serve the Lord with ALL my heart? Will I lean not to my own understanding on somethings and just trust God? Questions after questions can come, but my answer to God this day is YES. It is today that matters and if I get tomorrow, my answer is still YES.
I like that God uses our mistakes of yesterdays to push us forward. I am not proud of some of the things of my past, but I see how they make up my today. I wouldn't be who I am today unless I had gone through those things. Things that were wrong and now made right. God truly does forgive and he forgets. It is us that reminds him of who we were and he already gave that. Living in freedom of life means you let go of what you can't change. God took it and threw it far away.
Micah 7:19 New International Version (NIV)You will again have compassion on us;
you will tread our sins underfoot
and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
God wants us to seek him, praise him and let others see him through our lives. Purpose this a good day and know that God has a bigger plan than you can see. Your yes to him, brings new beginnings daily and when people come into our path, we can share his love. Take care of you and purpose time to rest. Rest in knowing God is able and count blessings of yesterdays. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
