It's a Choice

It's a path we must choose.  When we seek to follow Christ, be more like Him, reflect the Kingdom in all we do.  It isn't always an easy one, but

It's a choice.

We may struggle, we need constant prayer and we feel lost at times.  But keeping with the directive, staying tuned in...

It is a choice.

A choice, when made for His Kingdom, that gives us the tools to combat the down times, heal completely and feel joy deeply. 

It is a path we choose, a path I chose against all odds and on that path I chose to accept His intervention so I might grow...

Maybe that is why, when I stumbled across this scripture this week, it spoke to my heart.  A soft, gentle peace reminding me of His divine provision for our humble submission... of how we Grow when we let go:

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.  

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;  and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  
- 2 Peter 1:3-8

The qualities to grow in understanding and peace and a productive Christian walk will and do "increase".  You have a choice to add to your faith and grow your heart. When we let His Spirit go before us.  When we let go of ourselves and let God take control.  We have a choice...

I don't know if thinking on choices today leaves you fulfilled or unfilled.  I pray you may feel empowered to make the choices you need to make today... to let go and let God and see increasing measures of His qualities in your life.

Be blessed, you deserve it!
