Life has a funny way of making us choose.
We have to choose to lie, to tell the truth, to pick up that gamer control when we should be working. That kind of thing. The little things that nobody warns you about. It’s not drugs or alcohol.
Those are seen as the ‘BIG’ choices. Do you choose to have another beer when you should be driving?
I made a HUGE decision that changed my life about 4 years ago. It wasn’t the decision to stop smoking (yes I was smoking at 17) or the decision to keep a firm hold on my virginity when the rest of my friends were throwing it away.
It was bigger than that.
It was the decision to serve Jesus Christ.
Now I know you may have just rolled your eyes because you’ve heard it all before, but let me explain it to you like this.
It was my decision to make that decision. It wasn’t forced onto me. It wasn’t pushed onto me because I was born in a “Christian family”.
No, it was my decision to give over -everything- to someone I had never physically seen because I completely believe that He came to this earth as a man, gave up His Godhood, lived like I do and then died and took all my sin (even though I still mess up) with Him.
Now my life and the rest of the decisions I make revolve around Him. When He says no then it’s no. When He says go then I get up and start moving.
No, for a 21-year-old who enjoyed smoking and living however I pleased, it wasn’t easy. But it is now. No matter the hectic things that go on in my life, I am grounded.
No, I’m not perfect. No, I don’t have it all together. But I wouldn’t want my life to be any other way. I know that I wouldn’t be able to live my life any other way, because without Christ’s love in my life, I’d be lost and broken like I was before. And I never want to go back to that again.
