“God sticks by all who love him, but it’s all over for those who don’t.” Psalm 145.20
The Christmas fire is growing dim, torn wrappings bundled into the trash bin, special dishes clean and dried, and I wonder what we will remember of this Christmas in time to come. Will the special time together shopping in London be the marker? Is there a special present that will etch itself into a special place in our memories? The unusual whipped yams could be a regular family dish.
Any of these events, or even something I cannot imagine yet (disaster) could make its mark, but I know that this is not what I will remember most. This year is the year that I began an eternal journey with God. You have been an integral part of the walk – and you will forever be part of the link. This year I discovered the heart truth that God is our one and only hope, period. The definition of your life and mine today is our relationship with Him. Our only light for tomorrow is the acceptance and grace He offers to you and I. Any value we have to the world and people in it is because of what God did for us at Calvary. Living like God is the key to happiness now.
There is one fact, indisputable and frightening, facing both of us. We must decide if we want a relationship with God. This is not a decision that one can take lightly. We may think that we still have not decided, however each act, decision, and personal choice expresses our faith (or lack of) in God. We cannot sit on the fence; we are casting our vote in every moment of time. What is it going to be?
God desperately wants to be part of your life and mine, but the choice is ours to take. God will be right there with you if you want. If not, you are on your own! God is patience beyond imagination! God loves you! Take a leap; God is incredible!
