Free to Choose

LORD God,

Everything is in Your hands.

From the tiniest microorganism

to the largest star in the farthest galaxy.  

  It’s all Yours.

You made it all.

You spoke it into existence.

You hold it together.

Everything is interconnected and points to Your glory.

There are so many miracles all around us we don’t see.

The human soul, thought, memory, hope, and dreams: all from You.

Every ability I have is from You.

Every good gift in my life is from You.

What am I beside You?

I am a speck of dust. Powerless before You.

Yet You choose to give me freedom.

Freedom to believe or doubt.

Freedom to follow You or turn away.

Freedom to trust You or to depend on self.

Freedom to build or destroy.

I can choose death or life.

But I have no power to change the consequences of my choices.

I will reap what I sow.

God Almighty, please help to choose life everyday.

I know my eternity is secure in the hands of Jesus who died for me.

Help me in my everyday walk to choose You, to choose life,

to sow love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control.

I can’t do it without You. I yield to You my LORD.

    Love it! Reminds me of the blog I wrote about why God gives us the choice to sin.
