What if . . . ?

3 Jan

What if victory is found not in the declaration of achievement at the end of the battle but rather in the choices we make to fight well? The choice to listen closely to the Voice of the Good Shepherd when our own flesh, the world and the enemy tries to scream louder in our souls. The choice to intentionally walk in the footsteps of Jesus when a myriad of other paths tempt us to go our own way. The choice to have wild expectations of God’s beautiful intervention—expectations of hope, goodness and action, despite our circumstance. The choice to believe the More of God in the midst of it all…more love, more affection, more attention…specifically for us. What if these are the things that bring the beauty of Romans 8:37 to life?

Lord, may I #choose this day to live, fight and move through the battle well. May I face each crossroad with determination to choose you.  In Jesus Name Amenchoose 74532_pinecones_in_snow
