Life is filled with changes.
It is definitely a fact that nothing stays the same. We age. We grow. Our minds change. Our bodies change. (not always a good thing.. 😉 ) Our opinions change. It is just a fact of life. CHANGE.
Change is not always fun and exciting. Sometimes it’s welcomed and anticipated. Other times, change can be really scary to us.
Changes in our health can be very scary. Changes in the health of those we love can be just as scary.
The thing about change, is that we have a choice in how we respond to it.
Life is filled with CHOICES.
Our Awesome God allows us to make our own choices. He doesn’t force us to love Him. He doesn’t force us to follow Him. He gives us free will. We get to choose to love and follow Him.
Changes and Choices
Two things that evoke a lot of emotions.
Who do you turn to when you are going through a change?
Who do you turn to when you need to make a choice?
God wants us to turn to Him. He promises to guide us. He is Sovereign, Good and Fair.
Psalm 48:14 ~ For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.
HE tells us to come to HIM…all of us..who are weary..burdened. HE promises to give us rest.
Matthew 11:28 ~ “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Do you need to rest? Do you want rest? Are you weary? Are you burdened?
If you are, now is the time to make a change…make the choice to cry out to Jesus and give it all to HIM. To pray. To intercede on someone else’s behalf. To trust that God has got whatever you are facing. To trust that no matter what, God’s way is right. To rest in the shelter of The Almighty.
Psalm 91:1 ~ He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
We will ALL face a valley in our lifetime. Some may face several valleys. Those times that we are at our lowest. I’m not trying to be gloomy. It’s just a fact.
I couldn’t imagine making it out of those desolate times without my Jesus holding my right hand and walking with me. Carrying me at times. HE alone is my strength.
Isaiah 41:13 ~ For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
Do you know my Jesus? I pray that if you do not…that you will seek HIM now. You aren’t reading this by accident.
Life is filled with CHANGES and CHOICES. It’s up to each of us to make the right ones.
Until Next Time,
This post was originally written on 5/21…but for some reason, I didn’t feel that it was the time to publish it. I do believe that now is the time.
I have a special prayer request. I am asking all of you to join me in prayer for a friend and her husband from my church. They received some unexpected news this week about his health and would greatly appreciate your prayers! I would rather you hear any details from her..so go to her blog at www.amygking.com for updates and info. You can sign up on that site as well to receive her posts by email. Thanks in advance for your prayers. You will be greatly encouraged by Amy’s faith .
