DECISIONS, DECISIONS, DECISIONS
BlogFam, I know it has been “forever” since my last post and I can offer no excuses so I will leave them out of this blog and just keep writing. I have been writing personally but I have certainly missed writing in this way and publicly sharing my writing. However, we will celebrate that I am fully present today in this space and I am grateful that my passion for writing has not drifted, diminished, or died. So, here we go again… at least today… and prayerfully for many more days in the very near future.
As most of you already know, Salvation and Stilettos is my personal space to share my thoughts on scripture and on today, I admit that my reflections begin from a place of personal introspection and observation and our scripture is one that has come to my remembrance in light of recent events in my own life and the lives of those around me – physically and technologically.
The bottom line summation of this entire reflection is this: ONE decision can change your whole life. ONE decision can alter the course of events in ways that you may or may not anticipate. ONE decision can shift your destiny or the destiny of those around you, those who are connected to you or those from whom you have been disconnected. ONE decision can change everything.
Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. We make them every day. And regardless of whether you think your decision in the moment is of major consequence or of consequential insignificance, the truth is that every decision we make can impact our lives and our witness in ways that we may never know or completely understand.
Lately, I have been hearing this word over and over again in random and in previously scheduled conversations and while the word is common, my hearing of it has echoed in the depths of my Spirit. And without going into too many details, a few weeks ago, someone, whom I considered a dear friend made ONE decision that I know has and will continue to impact their life way beyond the moment the decision was made. And regardless of whether my friend feels regret or relief, guilt or glory, shame or satisfaction, I know that that ONE decision changed their life.
Now, let me be clear, I am not going to offer you steps, guidelines or rules to make good decisions, wise decisions, strategic decisions, well thought out or compassionate decisions. It is simply my intention to REMIND you that ONE decision can change your whole life.
I have made a lot of decisions throughout my life and so have you. We all make decisions every day. A decision is the act or need to make up one’s mind. Making decisions – making up our minds about anyone or anything – is an inevitable factor in each and every one of our lives. And on today, I just want you to be reminded that the decisions you make about your life or the lives of those around you mean something and will cost you something whether you feel the impact of them negatively or positively or not. And all it takes is ONE time to make a decision to change everything.
For once you have made up your mind about someone or something you have indicated the judgment that has been made, determined a preference or come to a conclusion. And not making a decision is still a decision to stall, delay, avoid, or maybe even pray about the matter before you that must be decided.
BlogFam, on today, I submit to you that there is ONE decision that all of us must make, determine, or come to and it is the decision as to whether you will or will not follow Jesus. The decision to do so has present and eternal consequences. This is the decision of your soul.
Now, I might not offer any other resources to help you make the decisions that you need to make about anything else on today but I hope that you have or that you will decide to CHOOSE JESUS! I pray that on today you will – if you have not already – DECIDE to BELIEVE and CONFESS, CONFESS and BELIEVE as in Romans 10:9.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
BlogFam, I have made a lot of decisions in my life but the ONE decision that I made so many years ago has made THE difference in my whole life and the life that is to come. This ONE decision changed my life and I live in light of its consequences every day. I do my very best to honor my decision to CONFESS and BELIEVE and I pray that you will too. I know that this ONE decision impacts and influences EVERY other decision about my life and my lifestyle and I do NOT want to even guess, speculate, role play, imagine, or explore the path of my life without Christ. I just pray that every decision I make on every day reflects the decision I made many years ago to be a follower of Christ.
So, I am not sure whether this is the beginning of a new series, as is my custom, or not, but I do know that DECISIONS – DECISIONS – DECISIONS have been on my mind and my belief and confession is THE deciding factor in every one of them.
God Loves You and I Do Too!
