(Or 'Turning a New Leaf')
What Star Trek reminded me of...
The most rewarding times in recent life, most fulfilling, even most joyful, are those in which I have sought after what God, and through Him and my love for Him, I, have wanted.
I have known that God wanted us to choose Him. Not to be forced to follow Him, but actually choose Him, of our accord, of our desires.
I believe this also translates into our lives. We must be obedient, but instead of, we need to love Him!
I chose to go to North Central
I chose to go to the altar
I chose to sing, I chose to make, and to build, and create
I chose to write
I chose to love nature
I chose to love life
I chose to love His people
I chose to love my God
No longer in obedience will I follow my Christ, my Savior, my Jesus.
I will follow Him with love with all that is within me!
To obey my God is to love Him:
"If you love me, keep my commands." - John 4:15
Life is no longer a box in which we must stay inside the borders to avoid sin. Starting in sin outside the border of the box, and moving into life, inside the box.
Rather life is outside the box, and inside is sin, where we start. After we leave the box of sin we move outside the border into obedience to Him. And even more so we grow and move from obedience into life, true life! Into a relationship with my creator!
I choose to go to the altar
I choose to sing, I choose to make, and to build, and create
I choose to write
I choose to love nature
I choose to love life
I choose to love His people
I choose to love my God
"...so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me."
~In awe of His mercy, and His goodness, and His wonders, and what He has for me!
'Lord, never let me go back to where I was, but lead me, and watch over my steps as I grow into the fullness of what you have for me'
I chose to watch Star Trek ;-)
