Each Day You Have A Choice

Each day, you wake up to a choice: Will you simply make it through the day and check it off the calendar; OR will you make this day the best day possible for God in your life, your family, your friends, and your coworkers?

… Today’s choice – how did it go?  Tomorrow’s choice – how will it go? Make each one the best possible – with God’s help.

But if we stand in the doorway, unspeaking the truth of the moment, then we have become as guilty as the tyrants inside.  In those moments any concept of outside matters not, because if we are unwilling to wield the purposes and strength of God inside ourselves, then we are useless to the outside, unseeing world.  We have become like them, lost and confused in the dark – unseeing the future, scared of the loss of light, yet unwilling to do what we know is right.  Walking in the path of righteousness is not only what we are called to do, it is absolutely what we must do on the inside, in order for anything outside to change.  We, the tyrants of our lives, will yield, when the silent doorway-standers speak.

Thank you, Simon, for the nudge.

World Missions – What are we waiting for?

If you believe that God has placed you on this earth to do great things around the world, hopefully you are currently doing something about it.  If not, what are you waiting for?

Every day that we wait to go, to send, and to pray in regards to world missions,  more people die without knowing that God died for them.

On the other hand, by going, by sending, and by praying, we put into effect the very power that compels us to relieve the suffering of others around the world.

God did not place us on this earth simply for us to work, earn money, and buy lots of things for ourselves.  No, he gave us the ability to work, to earn, and to serve in order for us to share with, to give to, and to love others around the world who live in circumstances different from our own.  When we break through the preconceived ideas of differences in locations, languages, races, incomes, and nationalities, we are able to realize that we are all the same in God’s heart.

We have a deadline.  Up to the moment you and I take our final breaths here on earth, we are obligated to move forward the cause of Christ, the purpose of the Gospel, and the calling of our hearts.  If we ignore those directives (laid out before us from the foundation of time), then the excuse of “I didn’t do it because” will NOT be a sufficient answer when we give an accounting of our lives to God.

Today, may you look for and find ways of serving where you are and going where you are called!
