It has been; My choices!
Deuteronomy 30:19: I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
I was thinking! The pain in my life; has been my choice. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I chose my husband!
I chose to have children; I knew the pain associated with childbearing. I yet chose to have them. Not just having one child; but having five which includes a set of twins!
I chose to take the Job as Supervisor!
I chose to date —–
I chose to overeat!
When I think back over my life; It has been my choices; that have brought the pain. Even in my foolish choices. God has kept me.
When I had the Stroke, I did not have any pain. When I had the Heart attack; I had pressure. I’m telling you it has been more pain in my choices.
I honestly do believe that when God allows something to happen in my life; He has been with me.
Choosing to live my life for Jesus has been at times a labour of love yet the benefits outweigh anything I’ve had to endure.
A time of reflection for me!
As I reflect; first; I would like to take time to Thank God for His Wonderful Grace and Mercy. Without it I would not yet be here. There has been residue throughout my life to show me that “It has been God ALL along.
Secondly; I would like to take time to thank my parents for without them I would have never been born.
Next; I would like to thank my husband; for without Him; we would not have these beautiful children.
And without them we would not have these wonderful Grandchildren.
I thank God for all of my children. Realizing; that he is working on and through them as well.
Do you suppose that We all have to go through a weaning process?
We naturally are attached to our parents, then to our spouses, etc.
God is a jealous God! Deuteronomy 28:14: And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
I don’t blame Him; after all He has gone through for me. I must receive Him personally.
Until we can place God in His correct place in our lives; everything else will be out of order.
When we give love to someone; do we not want it returned to us?
No one can love us the way the Lord can.
Matthew 6:8: Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Hebrews 10:36: For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
