The Choice by: MAX LUDACO


 Max Ludaco's book says it best



When God Whispers Your Name (The Bestseller Collection)


Each day is given to us as a gift from God.  what we do with it and how we may handle it, is the choice each of us make.  Let me share with you some thoughts from Max Lucado's book" When God Whispers Your Name" as to his choices for the day:


It's quiet...In a few moments the day will arrive.  In these next hours I will be exposed to the day's demands.  It is now that I must make a choice.  Because of Calvary, I'm free to choose. and so I choose. 

I choose love. No occasion justifies hatred; not injustice warrants bitterness. I choose love. Today, I will love God and what God loves.

I choose joy....I will invite God to be the God of Circumstances.  I will refuse the temptation to be cynical.  I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God.  I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God.

I choose peace. I will love forgiven. I will forgive so that I may live.

I choose patience... I will overlook the inconveniences of the world.  Instead of cursing the one who takes my place, I'll invite him to do so.  Rather than complain that the wait is too long.  I will thank God for a moment to pray.  Instead of clinching my fist at new assignments, I will face them with joy and courage.

I choose kindness...  I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone.  Kind to the rich for they are afraid, and kind to the unkind for such is how God has treated me.

I choose goodness...I will go without a dollar before I take a dishonest one.  I will be overlooked before I will boast.  I will confess before I will accuse.  I choose goodness.

I choose faithfulness...Today, I will keep my promises.  My debtors will not regret their trust.  My associates will not question my word.  My wife or husband will not question my love, and my children will never fear their mother or father will not come home.

I choose gentleness... nothing is won by force.  I choose to be gentle.  If I raise my voice, may it only be in praise.  If I clench my fist, may it only be a prayer.  If I make a demand , may it only be of myself.

"cross words"
"when someone comes to you with an ugly attitude, return it with a kind word. Give it a try. You may be surprised at the outcome."

Proverbs 15:1 (NIV) A gentle answer turns away wrath, but harsh words stirs up anger.
Minnie L Douglas (author and publisher)

GOD'S LOVE FOR HIS CHILDREN

GENESIS 1:1-31
This passage of scripture helps us to see why God created a help meet for Adam. He created and for eve, not Adam for Steve, and he loves us all unconditionally.


God loved his creations, but he was lonely.  He wanted a friend to share his new world, someone who would be like him. After careful consideration, he formed a man from the dust of the earth and called his name Adam unlike any of God's other choices.

GOD SEND US MEN

 
 
 
GOD SEND US MEN















God send us men whose aim twill be,
Not to defend some ancient creed,
But to live out the laws of right
in every thought and word and deed.

THE DIFFERENCE

The Difference 

 This poem reminds me to take time out of my busy schedule start my day by whispering a word of prayer because it really does makes a difference.
 














I got up early one morning

And rushed right into the day;

I had so much to accomplish

That I didn’t have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me,

And heavier came each task.

“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wandered.

He answered, “You didn’t ask,”

FAITH IT

FAITH IT












Many of us know this, so this is just a reminder that God wants us to increase our faith, and Satan wants us to decrease our faith, it sounds simple, but It' really a deep subject.  You see, Satan knows that if you can faith it, everything's going to be okay because God's got you.  You see, faith is having an unwavering confidence in God. God wants to know can you trust him even when you don't like what he's doing. A lot of times God does things I don't like, but if I want the victory, I need to trust that he's got the situation in control.
