So often we get caught up in what we are right now that we forget that the failures of our past don’t have to become the failures of our future. Change can happen, right now.
I don’t know about you, but I sometimes get caught up in the stampede of life barreling toward the cliff, and feel like there’s no other way but over the edge. And that isn’t how life is…
God gave us a way out, when he sent his son to die on the cross.
We can stop, right now, and pray the believer’s prayer, trusting that God will save us from eternal damnation, and hell. Because all we have to do is believe in Him.
It’s that simple.
The next step is to change what we’re doing today, and follow Him.
What would Jesus do? can be our life lament, every morning, as we awaken, we can ask him. “What would you have me to do?” and His word will guide us to the life of fulfillment and satisfaction that He created us for.
This doesn’t mean you’ll have an easy life from here on out, or that you’ll never have to face the consequences for things you’ve done in the past. But it does mean that from this point forward, your life can be different. You can make new choices.
Recently a young man shared how he had made a decision to stop drinking. An event happened and he looked at where his life was headed and decided that wasn’t where he wanted to go. He made a choice.
That choice has changed his life.
What choice can you make today that will change your life?
Make that choice today!
