An Old Man's Musings
Questions to ponder: Choices, always choices.... Why do I always have to choose? And why must I choose without having what I need to know to make the right choice? What if I choose wrong, and lose all I have? Choices, always choices.... Why are there so many choices? Almost like this life is training me again and again to choose and make the right choice... Why?
This Life is all about making choices, and hopefully, the right choices. Some choices are easy to make with little effect if we goof. Others have more beneficial results for our lives if we make the right choice, and harmful results if we choose "badly." Some of our choices may make money and gain wealth, some we lose with and become poor. Always choices... There is one choice that is more important then any others, more important than even our lives, and that is the choice each of us has to make about GOD. If we choose to not believe in GOD, then this life, with its good and bad, is all there is, and the best we have here will be the best we will ever have. And then someday, maybe when we grow old or maybe in accident no fault of ours, we will just end and cease to exist, And for those who have chosen to not believe in GOD, it is "The End." And if you have chosen to not believe in GOD, there are no really important choices left for you. Just live your life as you feel... and die.
those that use their 'free will' and choose GOD, the whole scenario is
different. This life, with its good and bad, is only temporary, and what
GOD has promised each of us in Salvation is the "Great Reward"
of Eternal Life with
Him forever. But that one choice to belong to GOD, will require us
to make many more choices each day. From the moment we choose GOD and
Jesus as most important, as our GOD, we belong to Christ and will always
be part of GOD. We love
GOD with all we are, and as with all we love, we only want to please Him
and serve Him, to choose to try to live a new sinless life and
not a life of sin. We
choose to fight sin because we love GOD with all we are and
want to please Him, and only exist as part of Him. Yes, we will do
wrong, we will fail and sin again, and when we do, we will choose
to passionately confess and ask for GODís strength to overcome sin the
next time. With GODís forgiveness, we will choose to
understand, choose to learn, and choose to move on as we choose
to try not making the same mistake again, to do better as we again
choose to live for the Son of God, our Savior Jesus
Christ. Each minute, each hour, each day, we will choose GOD as
most important to each of us in this life and Eternal Life, even more
important than our own selfish desires or our own life. And that is what
GOD wants of us, to always choose Him above all, for to Choose
is to Worship, for Worship is Love, and Love is what God always wants
most from us.

We all know where this came from, and it is not me, but GOD, so use what you need, and then pray and thank our GOD. Do not ever thank me, as I am only a channel for our Lord. Think of me as maybe being a very small and feeble beam of light pointing the way towards the Light of Christ. God Bless You All! Last modified: June 21, 2013(AL).
