It's A Journey

You don’t get to relive yesterday, today is all you have. But you can take what yesterday had to offer...the lessons learned, experience and wisdom to make today worth the while…or not…the choice is ours. We should seek to choose wisely.

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 NIV This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

It’s not that you can’t’s will you allow what needs to be done to get you where you need to be? All you have to do is make the decision to allow the process, not to fight it and to trust.

Philippians 1:6 NIV

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Are you confident? Are you in the race? Have you given up? Or do you not believe? You know it all comes down to your faith in God and the changes you believe He can make in you. There is a process we all must go through to walk out our purpose that will be all our own. Unfortunately or fortunately there are no shortcuts. But you do have the choice of not starting, continuing or finishing your journey. Always choices. The Lord is here ready willing and able to finish in you what has been started.

He will never force Himself upon you but He will never abandon you either.

Deuteronomy 4:31 NIV

For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your ancestors, which he confirmed to them by oath.

There is a price to pay for following the Lord and that is surrendering your will. You do not have to….but if not, the path you follow will be your own.
