It Is Just That Easy

It is just in the choices we make. We choose to do what is right and do what is "as unto the Lord'. It is in the choice to follow HIM and do HIS will. We want to make it more difficult than it really is.
It is a known fact that we do exactly what we want to do. That is a fact. We make
choices every day in all types of situations. We choose.

I stood in my shop the other day musing over some issues that we are having in the family and in my musing I was talking out loud to my self. I want my walk with the Lord to be stronger, said I out loud. I want the supernatural to be in my life the natural. I want to talk to HIM and hear HIM answer once again. I want my walk to take me to places that will marvel me and leave me speechless. I want to pray a fervent prayer and see the God of this Universe move in the lives of those in my family that so need the Lord. ( The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.)
I WANT.........

Then I stood quiet listening again to the words that I just spoke out loud. Knowing that I was speaking some to me and some to the Lord. I stood silent.

It is in my choice that I see these things come to pass. I am the one that will make the decisions in my life change. If I REALLY want HIM moving in my life greater than HE has ever moved then it is in my decisions that will see those things come to pass.

You see I have stood in the pulpit and preached the gospel and I have seen
lives changes, I have taught the word of God with power and authority and watched as HE moved through the crowd and touched hearts.
I have laid hands on the sick and seen them recover and I have stood silent in the presence of the most HIGH GOD and had need of nothing.
I miss the move of God in my life. Even as I type this out tears roll down my cheek as I remember the feelings of being in unity with HIM..... It is my choice from this day if I see these things returned to my life, my choice.
It is just that easy.......... HE stands ready to walk with me and talk with me ..... HE stands ready... I stood there in my shop, and I made my choice that will bring me to that place that my heart seeks...........
Make that choice in your life......... You will never be the same........

Denise,

Yes, it is our choice. Like the poem, "Footprints," He is always near. It is us that have to want Him in our lives.

Praying for you, my friend.

Blessings,
Mary

It is that I find this desire too. I see it is in a pure heart and clean hands....

This is a task living here to keep to the goal and to keep a watch. It is in little things that pureity is tainted and that our hands are soiled.
He creates in us a pure heart by washing of the water of the word. My heart is hardened around the edges and that is less than receptive for His presence.
Ye tin an instant in those moment it is soft, pliable teachable . Hands taken examined like a child before supper...Did you wash your hands...he sill say "yes Mom" then I look to see brown as if it is just a word to say what he wants...yes mom...
Did I wash my hands is the dirt going into my body.
I think that I say that..."yes Dad"...He smiles and said...I speak this for I want no illness to enter you.

did you wash your hands

Hands that shed innocent blood is one of the things he so hates. I have witnessed the strangest of minut detail where innocence is so complex to define. What might look guilty to me is in his eyes of wisdom....well...his eyes...

Thank you so much for your prayers for Jason. I think he is dead. I am seeing now how his years were a vapor. We tried to help him as a child only to see his life under the curse. He floundered without a father. My Steve was the closest thing he ever really knew of an honorable man. That only for a few years. Then prison was the last of his teen and early adult years he has only been free a few years now. All the thief came and the ignorance flooded his life with choices to choke a horse.
One lost I think. I hate to say it but I think he drove into the lake. We both do.
I have great concern for my sister does not know God in the same way and her daughter is due to deliver her first baby within 30 days.
That is my concern of the effect this will have on the living. Let alone on Steve and I.

May the grace of God move in our hearts, causing us to make the right choices that draw us nearer to Him. Bless you.

We started our Bible study tonight. And He picked me up off my feet and carried me around tonight. I may cross a line here but we need the Body of Christ as much....I realized tonight how much I needed it. It's work...and I've been hurt there...but it's so worth it.

You are so right about it being all about the choices.I have reaped many blessings because of good seed that was sown and I have reaped bitter consequences due to bad choices I have made. Thank God for His everlasting mercies that are new every morning!

Choices...and the freedom to do it.

I am guilty of making the wrong choices and yes, have had to suffer the consequences. And yes, there have been times that the right choices were made because I was "in tune" with God, and allowing Him to lead me, rather than myself.

Praying for you, my friend!
