PSALM 51:10 NIV ~
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
GALATIANS 5:13-14 NIV
You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.
Turning from old thoughts and entering a new thought pattern is important. Seeing yourself the way God does and leaning not to your own understanding. I find my life at a place where I struggle with wondering why of things. I realize that God is in charge of things, but also our own choices matter. In some of my own choices, I made mistakes with money or planning ahead. We can certainly live today, but planning ahead is important too. Planning ahead for your spiritual live is important too.
God can tell us in Galatians 5:13-14 that we are called to be free, but it's up to us to receive that. We are to do something about being free and living in God's grace and mercy.
2 Peter 3:8 NIV
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
Trust the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind. Allow your actions to reflect that of God and his plan. Yet, let us not forget we are human and we have freedom to choose. Choose right in life and keep hope alive inside of you. I find that happy people are contagious and so are sad people. Let us guard our hearts and be careful everyday of life.
I was watching a movie called, "Bicentennial Man". A robot created by a man who had a desire to want more in life. He wanted to know how the human mind work and wanted to change things. There is so much more about this movie and I loved it. The one things he wanted was to have freedom. I would recommend you watch this movie of change and how even a robot pressed toward freedom. One of the quotes of the movie, "Laughter is essential like a good friendship".
Unlock your life to God's plan! It's a new day filled with new choices and new opportunities to make a difference. Start with yourself and let it reach out far across the waters of life. God is good all the time and all the time, God is good! My prayers are with you, your family and friends!
