I Couldn’t Obtain

All my efforts were only in vain
Try as I might, I couldn’t obtain
To reach heaven where God does abide
I must trust Jesus and not my pride.

Like a Small Child

 

We see a place where we shouldn’t park…we park anyway. After all, there is something we must do and this spot is convenient. Surely no one will care. I’ll only be a minute, anyway. “I…Me” decides the rules don’t apply and rationalizes that no one will care.

~
We all try to abide by the rules and thoughtfulness I hope, but every once in a while there are those small moments when we close our eyes like a small child would and make the rules disappear. We even reason why it’s okay.
There are countless examples of moments when we choose to bend the rules, take a short cut or ignore them all together. We rationalize, justify, and exonerate ourselves.

~
Moments have a way of becoming habits and habits become second nature. Then, sometime, somewhere, somehow…someone dies. Then, we close our eyes like a small child…

Think on These Things

Philippians 4:8

…whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Power is given to whatever the minds focus is. We can choose positive or negative. We can choose peace or turmoil. We can choose God’s word or satan’s lies. Our choice…each day.
