Today we observe MAKE UP YOUR MIND DAY. A favorite Bible verse popped to mind:
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. – Joshua 24:15
A man I used to work with made it a point to buy a brand-new Corvette every year. His track record with relationships was dismal (I’m being kind) and it was a way of proving to everyone (including himself) that he was worth something. He spent very little on any sort of social life and had been jilted by women because he was very self-centered, shallow and afraid to commit. I had a few brief conversations with him about life, love and faith. I still pray that he will accept Christ into his life and let Him make life brighter and more meaningful.
I’m responsible for my decisions and my actions. Quite frankly, that is enough responsibility and some days it seems like more than I can handle. I plant seeds about life, love and faith because a life directed supernaturally is in good hands. Love from Christ is love that will last and will never fail. Faith in God through Christ will always be enough to see you through. It’s the kind of faith that will see you all the way through to heaven! I plant – but it’s up to God to make that seed grow!
So make up your mind. I’m reminded of a song! Here’s your earworm for today – you’re welcome!
Once you let God’s love and His Word guide you in life, the things that once seemed so important take a back seat to other priorities. Your focus changes completely because you begin to care about the things that God cares about instead of the things that society puts emphasis on. It’s freedom that you can’t possibly understand until you experience it for yourself. Wouldn’t it be a great idea to begin a relationship with Jesus in 2015? There’s no time like the present to accept HIS presence in your life! It’s not difficult – just ask Him to be your Lord and Savior. Accept His sacrifice on Calvary’s cross. You know, He would have died if you were the only one on the earth! He loves you. ❤
Well… I’ll be dancing around the living room singing this song while I’m dusting… I’ve got my mind made up… 😀
