Triple D!

Once again, God has challenged me- my way of thinking, my processing, my everything.

Just when I think I have a handle on being and doing all that God wants of me, He challenges me a little more.

That'll teach me to get all comfy and cozy with where I am! :)

But you see, God loves me enough to not leave me the way I am....
Thank God!

Because~ I may think I'm getting "good" enough (not really- but I act like it sometimes!)- but what does Isaiah say???? something about filthy rags???

Anyway, I was at a service tonight where our District Superintendent preached a powerful message. In it, he made one little statement that I couldn't get past.

Decisions Determine Destiny.

I wrote at the top of my notes: Triple D

my Decisions
Determine
my Destiny.

ouch!

So, what decisions have I been making for my destiny - you know that one that affects my husband, my children, my grandchildren and my church....????

Well, let's see.

I read my Bible.
good for me!

I pray.
whoop ti doo!

I go to church.
uuuhhuuh.

I do my ministry.
impressed yet? (didn't think so)

I blog.
oh, wow! (I know- still not impressive)

I.... live my life for Him.
(I'm getting somewhere... maybe)

but-

There is a song that plays a lot on the radio these days- by Matthew West. It's called The Motions.

The words say something like this~

I don't want go through the motions.
I don't want to go one more day,
Without your all consuming passion inside of me
I don't want to spend my whole life asking, "What if I had given everything?"
~Instead of going through the motions.

Oh.
my.

I want to live my life giving EVERYTHING!
I want to maximize the Triple D-
Decisions Determine Destiny!

My
Decisions
Determine
my
Destiny.

I have a choice in this matter.
I can make HIS decisions.
Or~
I can make mine.

Which one do I choose today??
Which ones do I choose tomorrow?

The decisions I make today, determine where I will be tomorrow.

mmmm-mmmmm-mmmmm.
Jesus help me in everything!
I want His all consuming passion inside of me!

What about you?
Going through the motions?

Your
Decisions
Determine
Your
Destiny
